Increasing Consumer Spending on Baby Care Products

Growing consumer spending and innovation in baby carrier design and materials used in baby carrier products are driving the growth of the baby carrier market globally. The increasing popularity of ergonomically designed baby carriers, known for better comfort and safety of babies, and lightweight baby carriers is expected to drive the growth of the baby carrier market. Owing to the development in baby carrier material, lightweight baby carriers are expected to drive the market's growth over the forecast period. Major players in the baby carrier are taking inspiration from baby strollers in terms of product innovation in the fabric, along with the shape and size of the baby carrier.

As there is an increase in the demand for eco-friendly and organic products, considering the baby’s health, players are coming up with baby carriers made with 100% organic cotton. For instance, players like Ergobaby and Babybjorn offer organic baby carriers. Other accessories for this carrier include organic backpacks, organic front pouches, organic teething pads, and weather covers. Style has also become a factor in selecting baby carriers. Parents are also seeking carriers that benefit from all that babywearing offers without losing their sense of style. Players are coming up with the intersection of comfort and fashion and catering to modern parents looking for the best of both. Artipoppe, a design house based in the Netherlands, has developed this innovative idea for baby carriers targeting young mothers. The company offers a range of functional baby carriers that are comfortable and fashionable. Another instance is from Baby Tula, which offers bamboo swaddle blankets, the softest swaddles on the market with the most adorable prints.

North America Holds Significant Market Share in Baby Carrier

Some companies include Onya Baby, Nuna Intl BV Baby Tula LLC, Balboa Baby, and Moby Wrap. Moreover, this product offers magnetic buckles. According to National Center for Health Statistics and National Vital Statistics Center, Natality, the preliminary number of births in the United States in 2021 was 3,659,289, a 1% increase over 2020 and the highest figure since 1990 since there has been an increase in the number of births. Hence, the increase in the infant population is propelling the demand for baby carrier products like buckled baby carriers, baby wrap carriers, baby sling carriers, and other such products across the region.

Additionally, social media platforms, such as Instagram and YouTube, are playing huge roles in the trends related to baby and child-specific products. Thus, these platforms influence the purchasing decisions of many millennial mothers. Therefore, the baby carrier manufacturers in the region are introducing technically enhanced baby carriers. Consumers also demand baby carriers that can be used for activities beyond regular usage. Therefore, Canadian companies offer various innovative products to cater to customers' needs.
