The global market for Baby Foods and Infant Formula is projected to exceed $74 billion by 2022, driven by young working mothers' need to strike a balance between children and career and the ensuing lucrative opportunities for healthy food options that meet the nutritional needs of babies in the absence of a breastfeeding diet. Favorable demographics such as older parents with higher discretionary spends and dual income households are pushing up uncompromising emphasis on child safety, health & wellness. Against this backdrop, poised to score the highest gains are high quality products manufactured with organic ingredients, fortified with nutrients in certified densities; and packaged in convenient on-the-go packaging. Regulations encouraging transparent labelling practices are additionally expected to enhance consumer confidence in packaged baby foods and infant formula products. Asia-Pacific, with its large base of child-bearing youth population, represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide. Major factors spurring growth in the region include changing cultural conditions as a result rising literacy rates, rapid urbanization and the ensuing increase in the number of working Asian women; influence of western lifestyles; expanding retail infrastructure; and increased confidence in shopping for baby products online.
