Baby food is a soft and easy-to-digest mash of vegetables, fruits, cereals and meat. It is meant for the consumption of babies in order to suffice their everyday nutritional needs. On the other hand, infant formula refers to a substitute of breast milk which can be served till the age of two years. It is manufactured via adding fatty acids, vitamins and prebiotics to processed milk. Since babies lack teeth as well as developed muscles for chewing, baby food and infant formula are intentionally made with a semi-liquid consistency. Moreover, these formulations offer ease of use and portability, which has helped in increasing their popularity among the consumers. A new research report by IMARC Group, titled "Baby Food and Infant Formula Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023", estimates that the global baby food and infant formula market was worth US$ 50 Billion in 2017. The report further anticipates the market to cross US$ 69 Billion by 2023, at a projected CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period.
