The global market for infant formula ingredients is projected to be valued at USD 25.5 billion by 2025.

Infant formula ingredients are used in the production of safe and highly nutritious formula solutions that facilitate growth and development in infants. Various ingredients used in infant formulas include carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, oils & fats, and prebiotics. These ingredients are available in powdered and liquid & semi-liquid forms.

The global infant formula ingredients market is projected to grow in the future, owing to the rise in the number of women joining the workforce after giving birth, the inability of some mothers to lactate, and parents of infants looking for an additional source of nutrition for the growth of the infant.

A key revenue generator among all the global regions is the Asia Pacific region, which is backed by China, which has a high birth rate, and the rise in middle-class population, owing to which women are joining the workforce after giving birth. Post the melamine scandal in 2008, consumers in the country are opting for imported infant formulas from Europe and Australia.

In Europe, the presence of key infant formula ingredient manufacturers, such as AarhusKarlshamn AB (AAK) (Sweden), Royal FrieslandCampina (Netherlands), DSM (Netherlands), and Arla Foods amba (Denmark), has enabled infant formula manufacturers, such as Nestl (Switzerland), to purchase low-cost ingredients, as the raw materials for manufacturing these ingredients are present in the region itself.

The global infant formula ingredients market is dominated by various players, depending on their core competencies. The key market players are Arla Foods amba (Denmark), Carbery Food Ingredients Limited (Ireland), Fonterra Co-operative Group (New Zealand), AarhusKarlshamn AB (Sweden), Royal FrieslandCampina N.V. (Netherlands), Sachsenmilch Leppersdorf GmbH (Germany), and Glanbia plc (Ireland).
