Infant Formula Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Infant Formula Manufacturing

As information about the importance of breastfeeding has spread recently, the Infant Formula Manufacturing industry has struggled to maintain growth. However, regardless of trends in breastfeeding, there will always be infants who cannot breastfeed for medical reasons, such as allergies. Therefore, as the number of births has risen over the past five years to 2018, demand for infant formula has risen slightly. Over the next five years to 2023, breastfeeding rates are expected to continue growing as the medical community further pushes the health benefits of breastfeeding. However, companies are expected to adapt to this trend through supplement and nondairy products, thus preventing any significant losses.

This industry manufactures infant formula, a powdered substitute for breast feeding that consumers use to support adequate growth of infants.



This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
