Global RTD Infant Milk Market 2017-2021: Increase in Demand for Organic and Non-GMO RTD Infant Formulas – Research and Markets

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global
RTD Infant Milk Market 2017-2021”
report to their offering.

The global RTD infant milk market to grow at a CAGR of 3.74% during the
period 2017-2021.

Global RTD Infant Milk Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an
in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report
covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming
years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors
operating in this market. To calculate the market size, the report
considers the revenue generated from the retail sales of RTD infant milk
products in the global market.

According to the report, one driver in market is wide product portfolio.
A wide range of baby foods and infant formulas propel the market growth
globally owing to the increasing demand from the parents seeking
different variants. The various requirements include different formulas,
different sizes, genders, age groups, variants of flavors, and product
packaging. Manufacturers such as Abbott, Mead Johnson Nutrition, and
Nestlé offer infant formula products with different variants under their
flagship brands Similac (Abbott), Enfamil and Enfagrow (Mead Johnson
Nutrition), and Gerber (Nestlé).

Despite altering the milk formula with whey, milk formula differs from
breast milk because of its different amino acid and protein composition.
However, RTD infant milk formula contains the necessary nutrients for
babies to grow. Further, RTD infant milk formula also contains the
necessary added nutrients and vitamins such as iron, which aids in
preventing anemia. Some RTD infant milk formulas also contain probiotic
Bifidobacterium lactis, which significantly reduces colic, lowers the
risk of food allergies, and helps in reducing diarrhea. Commercial
prepared milk formula brands thus meet the nutritional requirement and
safety standards.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is gap between
nutritional and immune strengthening benefits from breast milk. Being
known as breastfeeding alternatives, RTD infant milk products fall short
when compared with breast milk in terms of nutritional and immune
strengthening benefits. Ingredients such as DHA, lutein, and vitamin E,
which are found in breast milk, are frequently used ingredients for
breastfeeding alternatives. These ingredients used for preparing RTD
infant milk formula are low in concentration, on comparison to the
composition found in breast milk.
