The infant nutrition product market is broadly classified as baby food and infant formula. Infant nutrition refers to the dietary requirements of infants. A diet that is deficient in essential calories, minerals, vitamins, or fluids is deemed insufficient. When compared to infant formula, breast milk provides the best nutrition during the crucial early months of growth. Infant nutrition necessitates the provision of essential nutrients that promote normal growth, development, and resistance to infections and diseases.
The increasing number of campaigns organized by the government, in association with private infant nutrition product manufacturers, to increase awareness about the importance of nutrition for babies is projected to boost the demand for infant nutrition products in Indonesia. For instance, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), in collaboration with the Directorate of Community Nutrition, Ministry of Health Indonesia, is engaged in a project to increase the sustainable improvement of Maternal, Infant and Young Child Nutrition (MIYCN) in East Java, Indonesia. Under this project, the Behavioral Change Intervention (BCI) to be implemented in East Java aims to improve the nutritional intake for children aged 24 months and below from low-income families by providing them with baby food products.
The demand for convenient baby food has increased among consumers as a result of growing awareness about the complete nutritional needs of growing babies, met by infant nutrition. Furthermore, rising urbanisation in Indonesia, combined with an increase in the number of women in the workforce, is expected to propel the infant nutrition market forward.
According to World Bank, Indonesia is the fourth-largest populous country in the world; however, the birth rate of the country is declining. Between 1966 and 2016, the birth rate of Indonesia recorded a moderate decline from 42.3 per 1,000 people in 1966 to 16.4 per 1,000 people in 2016. The decreasing birth rate in the country is thus expected to hinder the Indonesia infant nutrition market growth.
