The Global Baby Personal Care Market size is expected to reach $8.2 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period. Baby personal care products are used in various product lines like skincare, haircare, and toiletries for their variety. The manufacturing of personal care items for babies requires a thorough collection of ingredients, with preference given to the use of benign ingredients.
The market for baby personal care products comprises baby care items that are used specifically for children. Baby powder, shampoos, body lotions, massage oil, shower gel, baby wipes, and other products are included in the product line. Before they are available on the market, the products undergo many clinical studies.
Worldwide popularity is gaining in baby personal care products. Birth rates in developing countries have risen, consumer awareness of child hygiene has increased, consumer availability has increased, and changes in lifestyle have fueled the market growth. In addition, the launch of organic ingredient products is expected to contribute to the baby personal care product market growth. Nevertheless, the baby could have harmful use of certain chemicals, limiting the growth of the market.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted patterns of demand for cosmetics and certain categories of personal care products. In addition, globally restricting people’s movement policies have also resulted in disruptions in the supply of personal care products. However, the emergence of e-commerce sites during these periods has offset the delays of customer purchases at the last mile.
In terms of revenue, the industry in Asia Pacific accounts for the largest market share and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The significantly high market dominance can be associated with growing customer demand for baby personal care products. Other prominent regional baby personal care products markets are Europe and North America. Consumers in Europe and North America are more aware of their products and therefore consider baby ingredients before making their final purchase.
