Baby Bottles Market to Gain Momentum Owing to the Increasing Production of Formula Milk Until 2021, Says Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BabyProducts–According to the latest market study released by Technavio,
the global
baby bottles market
is expected to reach USD 3.061
billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 4%.

This research report titled ‘Global
Baby Bottles Market 2017-2021
’ provides an in-depth analysis of
the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. To calculate
the market size, the report takes into consideration the revenue
generated from the retail sales of baby bottles to individual consumers.

Diet can affect the quality of breast milk. Owing to a shift in eating
habits, it has become immensely difficult for new mothers to be able to
breastfeed their children. A transformation from the regular healthy
balanced diet to the increased amount of fast food intake by new mothers
has disrupted breastfeeding.

Many lactating mothers, particularly working women and those in
single-parent households, opt for
for the baby in place of breast milk. Vendors are coming
up with baby formula milk that can be stored for longer durations after
preparation, thus providing parents with a longer window for personal
errands. Additionally, vendors are now coming up with baby formulas that
claim to contain nutrients present in breast milk.

Technavio’s consumer
and retail
analysts categorize the global baby bottles
market into three major product segments. They are:

  • Plastic baby bottles
  • Glass baby bottles
  • Other baby bottles

Global plastic baby bottles market

Since the 1950s, plastic baby bottles have been the most
preferred and widely available option for most parents. Plastic bottles
are preferred over glass bottles as they are lightweight and not
brittle, which make them convenient to use and easy to carry while

According to Brijesh Kumar Choubey, a lead toys
and baby products
analyst from Technavio, “The problem
with plastic baby bottles lies in the grade of the plastic that is used
to manufacture these bottles. All plastic baby bottles are made of grade
7 plastic
, a polycarbonate that is shatterproof in nature. This
polycarbonate contains a compound called BPA, which, when
released into baby food, could cause issues with the hormonal activities
in babies.”

Therefore, there has been a widespread ban on baby bottles containing
BPA, encompassing many countries, such as those in the EU. This has
prompted baby bottle vendors to manufacture BPA-free bottles.
However, despite the production of such BPA-free baby bottles, the
plastic baby bottles segment is expected to receive a setback from
consumer skepticism associated with chemicals involved in the
manufacture of plastics. Technavio analysts expect the global plastic
baby bottles market will grow at a CAGR of 2.05% during the forecast

Global glass baby bottles market

The glass baby bottles segment is the fastest-growing category in
the global baby bottles market. The glass baby bottles segment dominated
the market until the plastic baby bottles segment took over in the
1950s. Plastic bottles have been preferred over glass bottles due to the
convenience provided by the lightweight property of plastic. However,
instances of BPA seepage from plastic bottles into baby food have
significantly affected their sales. This negative effect of plastic as a
material for manufacturing baby bottles has resulted in the loss of its
popularity and, in turn, led to the gradual recovery of the glass baby
bottles segment.

“Glass baby bottles are especially popular in developed countries
such as the US and Canada, where consumer awareness about the harmful
effects of BPA and other impurities present in plastic is more
widespread. Technavio analysts expect the global glass baby bottles
market to grow at a CAGR of above 7% during the forecast period,”

Global other baby bottles market

The other baby bottles segment includes baby bottles made from silicone,
stainless steel, and polypropylene. These bottles provide the advantages
of both plastic and glass baby bottles. Stainless steel baby bottles
are chemical-free, bacteria-resistant, and unbreakable. However, these
bottles are heavier than their glass and plastic counterparts and cannot
be used in freezers because they deform at extremely low temperatures.

Silicone baby bottles, on the other hand, provide the baby with a
natural feeding experience. For example, Nuby Silicone Nurser helps the
parent feed the baby by gently squeezing the bottom of the bottle.
Polypropylene bottles, or PP 5 bottles, are made of a thermoplastic
polymer. This material has high strength, is heat-resistant, and is a
safer choice than grade 7 plastic bottles. The analysts at Technavio
expect the global other plastic baby bottles market to grow at a CAGR of
5.68% during the forecast period.
