Infant formula is a manufactured food designed and marketed for feeding to evolved babies and infants under 12 months of age, usually prepared for bottle-feeding or cup-feeding from powder (mixed with water) or liquid (with or without additional water). A variety of formulas are available for infants younger than 12 months old who are not drinking breast milk. The global infant milk formula (IMF) market is the fastest growing category within the larger baby food market. Milk formulas can be divided into four distinct types: toddler formula, stand formula, follow-on formula and special formula.

The report “Global Infant Milk Formula Market” provides a comprehensive study of the infant formula market along with a detailed study of its various segments. The major trends, growth drivers as well as issues being faced by the industry are being presented in this report. The four major players in the industry, Nestlé SA, Danone S.A., Mead Johnson Nutrition and Abbott Laboratories are being profiled.

The key factors driving the growth of the infant milk formula market are rising population of working women, increasing disposable income in China, rapid growth of e-commerce in the Chinese market, growth in urbanization, increasing globalization and growing global GDP.
