The infant formula ingredients market is estimated to be valued at USD 16.7 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2019, to reach a value of USD 25.5 billion by 2025. Rise in the number of women joining workforce post giving birth, the inability of mothers to lactate, and parents seeking additional sources of nutrition for their babies are among the key factors expected to boost sales of infant formula ingredients in the years to come. Apart from this, infant formula ingredients manufacturers have invested in R&D, which is further expected to drive the growth of the infant formula ingredients industry in the years to come.
The liquid & semi-liquid segment is projected to record the fastest growth during the forecast period.
Oils & fats are the most widely used liquid and semi-liquid ingredients for manufacturing infant formula. The liquid & semi-liquid segment is expected to exhibit high growth prospects in Asia Pacific. In Japan, liquid infant formulas are preferred owing to their convenience in emergencies such as natural disasters that frequently occur in the country.
The growing-up formula (12 months & above) segment is projected to record the fastest growth during the forecast period.
The growing-up milk (12 months & above) contains calcium, vitamin D, and iron, and mostly serves as a part of a balanced diet for infants. Given during the transition phase from infant nutrition to family food, manufacturers offering infant formula for this particular age group are expected to witness high growth prospects, especially from Asia Pacific.
