Which Markets Trends are Favoring Baby Safety Gate Demand Growth?

“Continuously Increasing Spending on Baby Care Products”

The preliminary element boosting the growth of the global baby care products market remains rising parental concerns about children’s safety. With the growth in the attention paid to baby safety by parents, investments in premium and good-quality products for babies are at their peak.

Manufacturers are concentrating more on product innovation and quality, as consumers are ready to pay premium prices for products from top baby gate brands. Growth in advertising, promotional activities, and extension of product lines are also major drivers for the market.

All this is likely to expand the market by 1.3X over the decade.

“Rising Number of Working Women and Prevalence of Nuclear Families”

The number of nuclear families is rising due to increasing urbanization, changing attitudes, and the desire for more privacy because of the Westernization trend across regions. The average size of a family, globally, has reduced to 3.

In addition to this, rising number of women joining the workforce is likely to enhance the adoption of baby gates to facilitate enhanced care of babies at home. Twice as many women joined the workforce than men in the year 2021 alone.

These factors are likely to fuel child safety gates market demand during the forecast years of 2022-2032. In addition, rising birth rate in some economies is also propelling baby gate consumption growth.

“Day Care Centres Emerging as Strong Revenue Stream for Baby Safety Products”

For most parents, baby care and safety are unavoidable expenses. However, spending too much is also a concern. The cost of hiring babysitters in cities is skyrocketing.

Experience in babysitting does influence the costs; for instance, a teenage sitter might charge less than US$ 10 per hour, and a college sitter with some experience may charge more. Additionally, charges also increase with the number of children that need to be taken care of.

However, day care providers are comparatively more committed and trustworthy in terms of the quality of care they offer. Also, as babysitters are not professionals and are only available for a short time; parents often prefer day care centres over babysitters.

Day care centres are equipped with baby safety products such as baby gates all over so as to maintain safety. With the growing number of day care centres, the baby safety products business is also expanding. Competition among day care centres to draw parents by providing high-quality services is aiding the baby safety products market.

Thus, the above factors are likely to enhance the sales of baby gate manufacturers by 2.1X over the forecast period of 2022-2032.
