Global Baby Wipes Market Trends:
The increasing awareness about proper hygiene among parents represents one of the significant factors propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, due to rising concerns about the presence of harmful substances in baby care products, a vast number of parents have shifted toward organic and natural baby care products, such as diapers and wipes. Consequently, the leading players have started using natural ingredients, like plant fibers and water instead of alcohol, in the manufacture of these wipes. They are also increasing investments in the expansion of their production capacities. For instance, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a US-based personal care company, has recently invested in its Tuas manufacturing facility to provide value addition to its Huggies baby wipes products and increasing their output. Furthermore, the surging cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and consequent lockdowns imposed by various countries have escalated the demand for baby wipes through e-commerce websites. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 5.26 Billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
