More babies, more disposable diaper dollars, right? No -- at least not always... The $6.1 billion babycare supplies market is essentially mature, forcing companies to heavily discount to steal brand share, at the same time that they must spend to develop innovative new products and mass-advertise them. Yet some marketers are mining opportunities in product extensions (for example, extending a diaper brand into baby toiletries), or in natural/organic formulations, in baby suncare, etc.
