Increasing Availability of Bovine Milk-based Formula for Infants

Breast milk is the finest source of nutrition for newborns. However, infant formula provides an important alternative to breastfeeding when it is not practicable or feasible to supply the developing child’s nutritional demands. Bovine milk has long been utilized as a key ingredient in infant formula manufacture. It is then enriched with nutrients and bioactive compounds to closely approximate the composition of human breastfeeding.

Bovine milk-based infant formula is the most widely available, but it is not ideal for all babies; hence, alternatives, such as those based on caprine milk, soy, and rice protein, are becoming increasingly common.

Rising Demand for Infant Milk Formula: A Global Overview of Market Trends and Drivers

The market in Japan is expected to expand at a remarkable CAGR of 14% from 2024 to 2034, projected to capture a significant 29.4% share of the infant milk formula market in East Asia by 2034.

Canada has a comparatively high proportion of working mothers, many of whom face challenges in breastfeeding due to time constraints, inadequate workplace support, and other concerns. This has driven the demand for regular milk formula as an alternative feeding option.

Cultural norms around newborn feeding methods in the United States and Canada have shifted significantly. Formula feeding is now widely accepted as a viable option for parents who are unable or unwilling to breastfeed. This shift in public attitudes has contributed to infant milk formula market growth in these countries.

Standard milk formula offers convenience and flexibility for parents, allowing them to share feeding responsibilities with partners, family members, or caregivers. This flexibility is particularly appealing in Canada, where individualism and independence are highly valued.

South Korea has experienced significant lifestyle changes in recent years, with more women entering the workforce. This trend has increased the demand for formula feeding as an alternative to breastfeeding, as working mothers may find exclusive breastfeeding challenging. Additionally, South Korea’s economic development and rising disposable incomes have expanded the middle class, enabling more families to afford formula feeding as a convenient and reliable option.
