A recently published analytical report of Transparency Market Research (TMR) elucidates key companies underpinning growth of the global amino acid-based formula market, which include Nestlé S.A., Mead Johnson Nutrition Company, Danone, Abbott Laboratories, and Ausnutria Dairy Corporation Ltd.

According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), participation of women in jobs reached nearly 50% in 2015, and the number is likely to exhibit steady surge in the upcoming years. With the lifestyle of these women becoming busier, its influence on birth rate as well as breastfeeding has been remarkable. This is significantly rubbing off on demand for infant formulas, such as amino acid-based infant formula.

Preference for such infant formulas have therefore increased among parents worldwide, which in turn is paving lucrative avenues for infant formula manufacturers.
