The global baby car seat market size is expected to reach USD 10.9 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. Growing awareness regarding child safety, along with the implementation of numerous government regulations in countries including France, Germany, and U.S., is driving the market. For instance, in U.S., there are laws stated by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety for 50 states, which need to be followed for child safety.
The convertible product segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.1% from 2019 to 2025. It is more economical as compared to other products as it is well suited for both infants and toddlers. It provides both rear and front-facing seats for children.
Europe accounted for the largest share in 2018 and is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. Increasing number of government initiatives to use the product for a child of age-group between 0 to 12 years has driven the market. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2019 to 2025.
The increasing number of accidents in developing countries such as India and China has led to the rise in installation of the product. However, despite the implementation of various laws, these are not being followed by the national citizens. According to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, approximately 18,500 babies die every year due to car accidents in China.
Hypermarkets and supermarkets dominated the industry, accounting for 55.6% share of the overall revenue in 2018. High penetration of these distribution channels in developed economies including U.S. and Germany, along with preference for the technical know-how about the products, has been fueling the growth of this sector.
Key producers of this industry include Dorel Industries Inc.; Goodbaby International Holdings; UPPAbaby; RENOLUX FRANCE INDUSTRY; RECARO Holding GmbH; Newell Brands; Mothercare plc; InfaSecure; Kiwi Baby; and Artsana Group. Product innovation is expected to remain one of the key strategies over the next few years.
For instance, in 2018, Goodbaby International Holdings Limited launched a convertible baby car seat, Cybex Sirona M. This product features sensor safe technology and enables the smart phone connectivity. The smart phone connectivity renders an alert to the driver if the seat is unbuckled during traveling in case of extreme cold or hot temperatures.
