Infant Formula Market

Infant formula is a substitute for the human’s milk, to feed the infants of age under 12 months. This processed food is the complete simulation of human milk, which is rich in proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and fatty acids, among others. Factors such as unhealthy mother, inefficiency of the infant to breastfeed, lactation insufficiency, working mother, and absence of the mother are primarily driving the global infant formula market. Apart from this, the high nutritional value of the infant formula and rise in birth rate are also causing a widespread adoption of this manufactured food. Despite the benefits, health risks associated with the usage of infant formula such as respiratory tract infection, atopic dermatitis, asthma, obesity and sudden infant death syndrome, among many others are hampering the growth of the market. Besides such health risks, the strict regulations on marketing and production of the infant formula, high cost of the ready to eat formulas, and low lifetime of the infant formula are also acting as a challenge to the market. These challenges are expected to have moderate impact on the infant formula market, as the growing demand for organic baby food and the innovation in its ingredients are anticipated to offset the challenges and propel the infant formula market in the coming years.
