Drivers & Restraints:
Safe and convenient baby feeding bottles are occupying the most space on the shelves in the market. Most parents are also looking for durable baby feeding bottles. Usually, breastfeeding is preferred by parents and recommended by many doctors, but infant formula has to be fed through bottles, which is what is driving the growth of the baby feeding bottles market.

Baby feeding bottles made out of polycarbonate are known to contain a harmful chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA). This BPA is a harmful chemical, and is known to mimic a hormone in the body which activates the progression of cancer and interferes with the development of the reproductive system. Due to its harmful nature, the usage of this chemical has been banned by many government bodies as far as baby feeding bottles are concerned. In recent times, even BPA-free polycarbonate has been found to be harmful for infants, which has led to mistrust amongst consumers towards the bottles made out of polycarbonate material. This factor has largely affected the segmental growth of the baby feeding bottles market within the recent past.
In 2017, the European Commission, which is an organization monitoring the proposals of European legislations, and implements decisions for the European parliament, extended its ban on BPA in baby feeding bottles to other products which come in contact with food and drinks, such as drinking cups and bottles. This signifies the potential of BPA as a harmful chemical in the body, and is also a strong restraint in the growth of polycarbonate baby feeding bottles.
