Infant Nutrition Market Dynamics

Infant Nutrition Market Driver

The increasing number of working mothers

  • There are several important factors driving the baby formula market's growth. The growing number of working moms, driven by economic growth that creates employment that brings more women into the workforce, is a primary driver of growth for the infant formula business. Another factor is the growing number of middle-class homes that can purchase baby formula as a result of economic and demographic expansion. This is especially true in emerging markets. Another significant contributor is the number of babies born in general.

Infant Nutrition Market Restraint

Decreasing fertility rate

  • Economic prospects, changing societal norms, and changing gender roles, particularly increased education, and career chances for many women, have lowered reproduction in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Geographic location also indicates significant disparities in the birth rate in the United States. Women in New England have fewer children, which is due in part to greater levels of education. Women in the South and Great Plains, on the other hand, have among the highest birth rates in the country.
