The report presents several reasons for the consistently rising demand for infant formula. Infant formula is regarded to be the closest alternative to breast milk, hence, it is strongly recommended by physicians for its nutrient content. This is the prime reason for the expected dominance of the infant formula segment in the baby drinks market in the coming years.

On the contrary, baby juice exhibits low demand due to limited availability of the product in Asia Pacific. In addition, baby juice is high in sugar, which makes it unsuitable for babies to be given on a regular basis. This is impeding the demand for baby juice in the Asia Pacific baby drinks market.
