Europe Baby Food and Infant Formula Market Trends:

The rising female workforce participation is one of the key factors driving the market growth in the region. Baby food and infant formula is widely used by working parents, especially mothers who resume their job shortly after giving birth, to provide a convenient, healthy, and nutritious diet to the child. In addition, the increasing parental concerns regarding the health and nutritional requirements of their children are acting as another factor contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, widespread product utilization as a special diet for infants with stomach sensitivity and metabolic illnesses is providing a considerable boost to market growth. Additionally, leading players are continuously investing in research and development (R&D) activities to launch innovative product variants with improved taste, such as lactose-free, organic, natural, and soy-based formulas. Such products are formulated without pesticides, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and sweeteners, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Apart from this, manufacturers are adopting innovative, green, and recyclable packaging solutions, such as stand-up pouches and flexible barrier bags, to address the rising environmental concerns, which is providing an impetus to market growth. Other factors, including rising expenditure capacities of consumers, easy product availability across various e-commerce platforms, and improved distribution channels, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth in Europe. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market value is expected to reach US$ 12.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during 2022-2027.
