Global Infant and Toddler Nutrition Market 2017-2021

About Infant and Toddler Nutrition

Toddlers experience rapid growth and development. During this growth period, they may be exposed to unsuitable dietary patterns, which can cause overweight, diabetes, and hypertension. Micronutrient deficiencies during childhood can cause irreversible deficits in development. The eating patterns of toddlers cause concerns about the nutritional adequacy of their diets. During the transition from breast milk to infant formulas and infant food, utmost care is required. Nutrition is essential for the growth and development of children. The quality and safety of nutritional food for infants and toddlers, the approval of large brands, and brand consolidation drive the growing demand for nutritional products. Hence, companies that offer infant and toddler nutritional products must develop specific competencies that adhere to stringent quality standards.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Proliferation in product portfolios. The demand for different blends and flavors of infant and toddler nutritional products is increasing from consumers. Manufacturers are constantly updating their products to include new and unique products that differentiate them from the competition. For instance, in July 2013, Plum Organics launched a toddler snack range, Mighty 4. It is a range of blended organic vegetables, grains, and fruits.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing number of women in the workforce. In the last decade, the number of women in the workforce has increased, which has increased their purchasing power. When women take a break from working to have children, they face serious implication such as loss of career opportunities. A significant number of working mothers are a part of the workforce as they are the primary source of income for their families.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Declining birth rates. Globally, there is an increase in the infant mortality rate. However, the global birth rates have been steadily declining over the years. Many developed countries tend to have lower fertility rates when compared with developing countries. This is due to rapidly changing lifestyles and economic growth.
