The dietary needs of infants are termed as infant nutrition. Proper nutrition during infancy is essential for the growth and wellbeing of kids. Though breast milk is the best form of food for an infant during the first six months of life, the formula can also be a great alternative. Infants triple their birth weight during their first year of life. They need a lot of nutrition during this period than any other period in their lifetime. The essential nutrients babies need are calcium, fat, folate, iron, proteins and carbohydrates, zinc, and vitamins.
Mostly infant nutrition formulas are made from cow’s milk. They are fortified with nutrients to make them nutritionally compatible to that of breast milk. These formulas contain carbohydrates in the form of lactose, iron, proteins, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleotides, pre-biotics, and probiotics. Factors propelling the growth of the infant nutrition market are higher spending on baby health, an increase in the number of working mothers, and growing demand for organic baby food. Several surveys point out that in recent times, parents spend a lot of money on their kids due to guilt, shame, or social anxiety.
During recent years, there is a significant growth in the number of young working mothers. These mothers are generally dependent on processed infant nutrition products to feed their babies. This factor has fueled the growth of the infant nutrition market. Likewise, the desire of the parents to feed their children with healthy foods has resulted in the increased growth of organic infant nutrition products. Additionally, factors such as increasing urbanization, growth of the middle class, and a significant increase in the number of women participating in the labor force have enhanced the infant nutrition market.

The global infant nutrition market is segmented based on toddler(+12 months) standard (0-6 months), follow on 9 ( 6-12 months), and special products (allergic, premature). Essential fatty acids added to infant nutrition formula are crucial to the baby’s brain and vision. Nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA and RNA. They help in the development of digestive organs and boosts the baby’s immune system. The pre-biotic and the probiotics help in the addition of good bacteria and prevent the harmful types of bacteria that may cause infection. Infant nutrient formulas enhanced with probiotics protect the babies from eczema. Pre-term and low birth weight babies need proper nutrition. These special nutrients help them to catch up on growth. These special infant nutrition products may contain extra calories, fat, proteins, and minerals.
The fastest-growing region in the infant nutrition market is China. The growth is due to the increasing population after the withdrawal of the one-child policy by the government. The increased sale of infant nutrition products in the Asia-Pacific region is mainly due to a significant increase in disposable income and awareness among the parents about the child’s nutritional requirements. The North-American area is expected to witness the highest compound annual growth rate throughout the forecast period. The factors cited are high per capita healthcare expenditure, awareness, and increased disposable income. Europe is also a highly established premium market that contributes to the growth of the infant nutrition market.
Despite a trend in the slowing down of birth rate, there is significant growth in the infant nutrition market. This is due to an increase in working women population. Manufacturers design formulations that closely resembles the composition of breast milk.
