Several types of infant formulas such as prebiotic infant formula, organic infant formula, soy-based formula, lactose-free formula and non-genetically modified organisms’ infant formula are widely available in the market. Infant formula products are suitable for children under one year of age. These products vary in nutrients, taste, price, ability and quality from region to region.

Market Dynamics

Rise in birth rate, increase in number of working mothers and innovations in technology especially in packaging are some of the crucial factors accelerating the growth of the global infant formula market. Choosing the correct and the most suitable infant formula product is one of the important decisions undertaken by working parents across the globe. Increase in women participation in employment has in turn led to an increasing demand for infant formula in both developing and developed economies. Also, increase in demand for organic and natural infant formula products implies the rapidly changing perception of consumers towards infant formula products. The most widely used infant formula product is infant milk formula which is made of cow’s milk mixed with minerals, vitamins, vegetable oils and carbohydrates. Modified infant formula contains the important and necessary vitamins and nutrients including iron which helps in prevention of anemia among infants and aids the babies to grow properly.

One of the key factors driving the global infant formula market is the rapidly increasing health concerns among working parents. Most parents are inclined towards optimal dietary and health nutrition products to ensure their babies’ efficient development and growth. Also, parents are widely choosing packaged foods for their babies and packaged infant formulas as an alternative to breast feeding. Working parents are willingly ready to spend on expensive and high-quality baby food products to ensure their well-being. This growth in nutritional concerns has accelerated the infant formula providers and vendors to come up with various natural and organic products which are relatively safer and more nutritional as compared to other conventional foods.
