Breast Milk Substitutes Industry Viewpoint

Before late 1860s, breastfeeding was the prime source of optimum child development and nourishment. Later, several years after the introduction of breast milk substitutes in the late 1860s, the rate of breastfeeding fell down rapidly between 1930s and 1970s. Aggressive marketing efforts, especially in countries having high birth rate served as a lucrative growth opportunity for manufacturing firms, further leading to growth in adoption of breast milk substitutes. However, increasing breast milk substitute-related infections, malnutrition, pneumonia and ultimately mortalities due to contamination of these products resulted into numerous initiatives to control marketing of breast milk substitutes and preserve breastfeeding. Non-governmental organizations such as World Health organization, UNICEF and others developed a Code to limit promotion of breast milk substitutes and other food that replaces breastfeeding.

However, even after several amendments in the legislation and restrictions on marketing of products by the major companies, breast milk substitutes market still continues to evolve owing to increasing number of working-class women and shift in perception of infant formula as modern formula milk in few countries. Furthermore, increase in prevalence of allergies related to breastmilk, intense marketing activities and investments by firms coupled with rising disposable income will provide momentous potential for breast milk substitutes industry growth in the foreseeable future.
