MARKET DRIVERS

According to a survey in 2022, almost 25% of income in working families is spent on baby care.

The increasing birth rate of babies worldwide drives the baby care products market growth. The shifting trend to provide high-quality products for the baby, along with an increasing number of newborn babies, is anticipated to leverage the market growth rate. According to a recent survey, nearly 139 million babies are born in a year, whereas approximately 3,85,000 are born per day roughly. For the next 50 years, this count will be stable.

The growing prominence of organic and gluten-free baby food products further fuels the growth rate of the baby care products market. With rising awareness over using organic baby food products that do not harm babies like other chemical products, the demand for the baby care products market is growing exponentially. It is highly recommended for parents to buy organic-based cosmetics as other products may have chemicals that are very harmful to newborn babies.

An increasing number of working women worldwide contributes to the global market growth. The sales of baby care kits have increased with the growing number of working women worldwide. Working mothers usually depend on instant baby products and look over high quality, which is a crucial attribute prompting market growth. According to the global labor force, the status of women working around the world is about 47%. Therefore, the increasing independence of mothers worldwide is directly surging the sales of baby care products.

Increasing spending on baby care escalates the market’s growth rate. With the rising number of working families, the demand to adopt essential baby care kits is also increasing. This shows that the demand for the baby care products market is increasing at a rapid rate. Growing awareness over the use of ultimately safe products for babies in both developed and developing countries is elevating the growth rate of the market. Also, rising disposable income in urban areas is likely to fuel market growth in the coming years.

The rising awareness of childcare and income levels in emerging economies are notable vital factors propelling the baby care products market growth. The emerging countries offer an excellent market opportunity for baby care products. Some NGOs carry out campaigns, such as diaper banks, to explain the importance and benefits of using quality diapers. It also encourages the use of eco-friendly diapers, such as biodegradable variants, for complete baby health care. The key market participants are focusing on developing innovative products that are eco-friendly using advanced technologies. The awareness of hygiene and the health of babies persists into the launch of innovative products that are quietly promoting the sales of baby care products. Focus on safe and natural-based products among parents is attributed to set several growth opportunities for the baby care products market. The launch of paraben and harsh chemical-free products is ascribed to boost the demand for baby care products worldwide and contribute to the global market growth in the coming years.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The main restraint of baby care products is the use of certain chemicals that can be harmful to babies, limiting the market growth. In addition, another critical challenge for the leading international players in the global baby products market is competition with local players. Due to the high production cost of these products, local companies produce low-priced and low-quality products, affecting the overall demand for baby care products and hampering the global market growth. Growing concerns over the safety of babies are increasing among consumers, which is a challenging factor for the market participants in the global market. Also, the high cost of branded products that common people cannot afford, especially in underdeveloped countries, is impeding the growth rate of the baby care products market.

Furthermore, some babies with very sensitive skin show allergic reactions to the chemicals used. This factor is attributed to restraining the growth rate of the baby care products market. Stringent rules and regulations by government authorities in approving the products are slowly degrading the shares of the market. Also, there is a growing number of lawsuits against many branded companies, and those are lowering their product sales. This is ascribed to limit the baby care products market. In 2022, Johnson & Johnson announced that they would discontinue the manufacturing of the talc powder as they are receiving a huge number of lawsuits. Many lawsuits claimed that this company is using a harmful chemical, asbestos, in talc powder. The use of this chemical will lead to ovarian cancer and other diseases among children.

Impact of COVID-19 on the baby care products market

In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic spread around the world, the demand for the baby care products market reduced eventually. The sales completely declined during these days due to lockdown restrictions in every country. Johnson & Johnson company shares in baby care products declined up to 9.4% in 2020 when compared to 2019. However, the market share started to rise when some relaxations were announced by respective government authorities and uplifted the lockdown restrictions by the end of 2020 globally. On the other hand, the penetration of online shopping and a growing number of smartphone users prominently leveraged the market demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
