Baby care and mother care products are meant for infants and mostly children under the age of four. These products are specifically formulated to be non-irritating and have mild use ingredients which are selected to make the products organic and natural. A number of key players now manufacture personal care products for mother and child that are designed specifically for use during pregnancy.
The global baby care and mother care market is influenced by many factors such as increase in birthrate, affordability, and changing lifestyle. Growing infant population in emerging countries such as China and India along with the rising focus on e-commerce has led to the development of the baby care and mother care market. Extensive urbanization in different regions has also led to growth in the number of nuclear families with both parents working, driving per capita expenditure on baby care as well as mother care. Among the many baby care products, pacifier and breast pumps (product for babies and mother respectively) play a key role in the market. However, regular usage of pacifiers may lead to infection in babies. Rise in awareness about baby care and mother care products in developing countries and usage of technology in products such as cribs, strollers, and toys are projected to generate opportunities for the baby care and mother care market.
