Among types of baby care products, wipes and baby diapers witnessed lowered spending indices between March and April that same year, meanwhile, baby food saw a significant increase towards the end of April 2020.

Parents around the world have become more cautious when selecting any baby-related products, be it baby food, baby cosmetics & toiletries, or baby safety & convenience. Demand for chemical-free and harmless baby care toiletries has been mounting due to rising awareness associated with various health-related issues, such as fungal and bacterial infections, caused by synthetic baby products and toiletries. This has spurred the demand for skin, bathing, and other toiletries products for which consumers are willing to pay premium prices depending on their quality. Moreover, innovative packaging and the incorporation of specific organic ingredients that have multiple health benefits are likely to boost the growth of the market.

The rise in the population of working women particularly in an emerging country such as India contributes to the increased baby care products sector, making it one of the most significantly growing markets in India. The demand for baby products has seen to be growing significantly owing to increased disposable income and the spending power of the population on such superior quality products that assure improved baby health. Rising awareness about the health benefits of consuming baby food that have fewer pesticide residues and is particularly formulated for infants to toddlers, approximately between six months to two years of age further augments its demand.

Infants and toddlers are more prone to foodborne illness as their immune systems are not fully developed to combat infections. Therefore, factors such as premium quality products and their safety are amongst the most important criteria influencing the buyer’s decision. Moreover, the growing demand for gluten-free versions of baby food products is uplifting the industry growth of baby products. Health organizations such as FDA, have set strict guidelines for baby foods and the use of chemicals owing to their side effects on the human body. These factors in turn are likely to supplement the market growth.

The online availability of baby care products and the increase in internet penetration consolidate the market expansion across the globe. The rising number of smartphone users, easy access to internet connectivity, and the rise in the use of e-banking systems is projected to aid in the sales of baby products through online platform. Owing to hectic lifestyles, consumers opt for the convenience of online shopping instead of visiting physical stores, which not only offer instant doorstep delivery but multiple discounts and offers at the same time. The use of mobile wallets is anticipated to increase in the years to come.

Product Insights

The baby safety and convenience segment held a significant share of the market and is poised to grow at a steady pace over the next coming years. A noticeable inclination toward nuclear families and a rising need for infant protection, along with an increasing number of government initiatives to control the rising death incidents among babies have been driving the market. The government is taking preventive initiatives by introducing new rules and safety standards, as the number of child deaths has been increasing. For instance, in Europe, the United Nations Economic Commission of Europe (UNECE) Regulation No. 129 and Regulation No. 44 has set the standards for child restraint systems and every baby car seat must meet these standards.

The baby cosmetics & toiletries segment contributed the second-largest share of the market and is projected to register the fastest CAGR from 2022 to 2030. Baby skincare accounted for more than 36.0% market share.
