DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Infant Nutrition: Global Markets” report has been added to’s offering.

This report studies the global market for infant nutrition with 2019 as a base year and provides estimates for each year of the forecast period of 2020 to 2025, with projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGR).

Preterm births and changing lifestyles & dietary habits of women mainly attribute to the growth of the infant nutrition product market globally. Though exclusive breastfeeding is recommended by the WHO, FDA, UNICEF and other multiple healthcare organizations, in some cases, new mothers cannot breastfeed their babies due to medical complications or lack of production of breastmilk; or they refuse to breastfeed in order to return to work and continue in their careers. Such sections of women are largely dependent on formula milk.

In recent years, there has been a steady and significant increase in consumer demand for infant nutrition products. Parents look to commercial infant nutrition products to help them manage time. The growing number of working mothers has served to boost the demand for convenience products in the infant nutrition category. Each year, producers have created more sophisticated formulas that come closer to mother’s milk, as well as formulas adapted to specific needs (e.g., the formula for low weight/preterm infants, hypoallergenic formulas).
