Infant Formula Market Analysis, Status and Global Outlook 2020 to 2030

June 11th, 2021 9:53 AM

Replacement for breast milk is infant feeding. The initial six months after birth play a crucial role in the development of an infant, which is of vital importance in ensuring adequate nutrition during this time. Breast milk is highly nutritious and includes the essential carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, and vitamins for the growth of the infant. In certain cases, however, the mother may not be able to produce breast milk or, for other reasons, may not be able to breastfeed the infant. In such situations, products for infant feeding serve as an effective replacement. Infant formula, such as carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins, fats, and minerals, is also known as a baby formula that has a rich nutritional value. This formula is optimized for the baby’s overall growth and provides the baby with vital nutrients in the early stages of development. The infant formula is appropriate for children under 1 year of age.

The growing number of infants born each year will be the key factor that will drive the growth of the infant formula market over the forecast period. The demand for infant formula is experiencing substantial growth due to the increase in the population of baby boomers, the increase in people’s disposable income in developing regions, and the rising inclusion of women in the labour force that has encouraged the adoption of baby formula and prepared baby foods. Moreover, the infant formula market was further fueled by rapid urbanization and the expansion of the middle class. In addition, the rising number of middle-class households in emerging economies, including India, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, etc., has resulted in economic and population growth and an increase in the number of consumers who are able to afford infant formula for their infants which has accelerated product demand during the forecast timespan.

Global Infant Formula Market: Segments

ProbioticsType Segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2019-30

Global Infant Formula Market is segmented by ingredient Type into Carbohydrates, Oils & Fats, Proteins, Vitamins, Minerals and Prebiotics.The ingredient segment of the probiotic infant formula comes in various types, such as condensed liquid and powder, and can be combined with other liquids, such as milk. Specifically, the personalized product offering is designed to meet the metabolic and intestinal needs of children, which is expected to support the growth of the segment over the next seven years. The growing value of infant formula fortified with nutritional content is expected to restrict the use of vitamin ingredients due to new product launches by baby food manufacturers, including FrieslandCampina and Arla Foods.

Toddler infant segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2019-30

Global Infant Formula Market is segmented by application into Growing-up Milk, Standard Infant Formula, Follow-on Formula and Specialty.Based on the application, the Follow-on product segment accounted for over 40% market share in 2018 and forecast to grow with a significant CAGR over the forecast timespan. Toddler infant formula will be the fastest-growing market. The market for the commodity would be propelled by rising health awareness. In addition, shifting lifestyles and rising people’s disposable incomes in developing economies will boost the market for goods in the coming years. In 2018, the specialty product segment had the lowest market share and would moderate the CAGR during the forecast period. In the age group above 3 years, this can be attributed to low product consumption. Babies begin to eat other food products and nutrition sources after a certain age.

Supermarket/Hypermarket segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2019-30

Global Infant Formula Market is segmented by Distribution Channel into Supermarket/Hypermarket, Traditional Grocery Stores, Online Retailing and Others.Based on the distribution channel, supermarkets/hypermarkets held the largest share in 2018 in terms of revenue and projected to grow with the highest CAGR in near future. Supermarkets, in recent years, are one of the fastest-growing retail types. Over the past few years, the wide range of items, real-time shopping experience and budget pricing have attracted diverse segments of society. To get more eyeballs and raise the conversion ratio, food producers and distributors are fighting to catch the top spots in supermarket shelves. In 2018, Hypermarket was one of the main distribution channels and will grow throughout the forecast period with a prominent CAGR. Behind its penetration throughout the world, strong discounts given by hypermarkets were major driving factors over the historical period

Global Infant Formula Market: Market Dynamics


An increasing number of working women populations

The growing number of working women is a primary factor driving the growth of the infant formula market. After childbirth, numerous women quickly resume their jobs and infant formula is perfect for these women as it is easy to prepare and take less time. In addition, baby formula has different nutrient qualities than are found in human breast milk, which further enhances market acceptance. Increased protein use as an ingredient in various applications such as milk production and specialty formula is expected to increase the overall demand for infant formula ingredients over the next few years.


Strict regulatory hurdle associated with the approval for production of infant’s formula

Market growth of infant formula is expected to be constrained by a strict regulatory hurdle associated with the approval of the production of infant formula and food. In addition, the increasing incidence of controversies in the infant formula industry is once again expected to have a negative effect on consumer growth. A lack of knowledge of the health benefits of infant formula among consumers in developing countries, especially in rural areas, is projected to hamper the growth of infant formula in the market. In addition, dangerous fluoride-related effects due to toxicity are projected to reduce its demand as an ingredient in infant formulas over the forecast period.
