Baby Car Seat Market - Snapshot

In terms of product type, the baby car seat market is divided into infant seats, booster seats, combination seats, and convertible seats. The booster seats segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2017, followed by convertible seats. Booster seats have set cushions that raise the child’s sitting position in the car allowing the car’s seat belt to fit properly. Seat boosters are used for children in the age group of four to twelve years. The booster seats segment is bifurcated into high back booster seats and backless booster seats. Car seats are primarily made from hard plastic, which can become brittle and unsafe over time due to weather and use. Rust can form on metal parts in unseen areas and affect how the seat performs in a crash. Most car seats last for six to ten years; however, car seat expiration dates vary by manufacturer. Different types of car seats are used as the baby grows, therefore the car seat is utilized for short period of time. If this requirement passes into a law, parents would be required to buy a minimum of four child car seats to match the age categories of their child until they turn 14. This is likely to further reduce the lifecycle of baby car seats.
