 Soy-Based Infant Formula Market

Soy Based Infant Formula Market Analysis and Size

Soy-based infant formula is a crucial alternative for infants allergic to cow's milk protein or intolerant to lactose. The increasing prevalence of lactose intolerance and cow's milk protein allergy among infants drives the demand for alternative formula options. Soy-based infant formula is particularly favored by parents seeking a plant-based, non-dairy alternative. Globally, approximately 65.0% of the population is lactose intolerant, with Finland experiencing a notable impact, affecting 1 in 60,000 newborns and showing a rising trend. This underscores the importance of offering alternative formula options for infants with specific dietary needs.

Global soy based infant formula market size was valued at USD 300.23 million in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 414.06 million by 2031, with a CAGR of 4.10% during the forecast period of 2024 to 2031.

Market Opportunities

  • Increasing Research and Development     
  • Health Benefits of Soy    

Market Definition

Soy-based infant formula is a type of formula made from soy protein isolate, which is derived from soybeans. It is designed to mimic the nutritional composition of breast milk and is used as an alternative to cow's milk-based formula for infants who are intolerant to lactose or have a cow's milk protein allergy. The soy-based formula contains essential nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals, and is fortified to meet the specific nutritional needs of infants.

Soy Based Infant Formula Market Dynamics

  • Increasing Incidence of Lactose Intolerance and Cow's Milk Protein Allergy   

Lactose intolerance, characterized by the inability to digest lactose, the sugar found in milk, affects a significant portion of the global population. Similarly, cow's milk protein allergy, which can cause allergic reactions ranging from mild to severe, is increasingly recognized among infants. As more infants are diagnosed with these conditions, healthcare providers are recommending soy-based infant formula as a suitable substitute. Soy-based infant formula is lactose-free, driving the demand for soy-based infant formula as a safe and effective alternative.       

  • Growing Awareness about Plant-Based Diets

Consumers are increasingly seeking alternatives to traditional cow's milk formula, viewing soy-based options as a natural and healthy choice. Plant-based diets are associated with various health benefits, including reduced risk of chronic diseases and environmental sustainability. As a result, parents are more inclined to choose soy-based infant formula for their infants, believing it to be a healthier option. This shift in consumer preferences towards plant-based diets is expected to fuel the growth of the soy-based infant formula market.

Opportunities

  • Increasing Research and Development          

Manufacturers are continuously exploring ways to improve the formulation of soy-based formulas to make them more closely resemble the composition of breast milk. This includes optimizing the balance of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and fortifying the formula with essential vitamins and minerals. Additionally, efforts are being made to enhance the taste and texture of soy-based formulas to make them more palatable for infants. These advancements in research and development are expected to drive the adoption of soy based formula for infants among consumers seeking high-quality, nutritious alternatives to traditional cow's milk formula. Ongoing research and development efforts are crucial in enhancing the nutritional profile and taste of soy-based infant formula, thereby new opportunities for market growth.      

  • Health Benefits of Soy    

Soy contains phytoestrogens, which are plant compounds that have been studied for their potential health-promoting effects. Some studies suggest that consuming soy products may help reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancers, among other benefits. By highlighting these potential health benefits, manufacturers can attract health-conscious consumers who are seeking nutritious options for their infants. In addition, the association of soy with other health benefits, such as improved heart health and bone health, further strengthens the positioning of organic soy based infant formula as a healthy alternative to traditional formulas and presents a significant opportunity for manufacturers.

Top of Form

Restraints/Challenges

  • Price Sensitivity of Soy Formulas  

Compared to conventional cow's milk-based formula, soy-based formulas are often priced higher, which may deter price-sensitive consumers from choosing soy-based options. Price-conscious parents may opt for more affordable alternatives, especially when similar nutritional benefits can be obtained from other formula options. The price sensitivity of consumers is a significant factor that may impact the adoption of soy-based infant formula and challenge market growth.  

  • Availability of Alternative Formulas

Hydrolyzed protein formulas are designed for infants with cow's milk protein allergy and are often recommended as an alternative to soy-based formulas. These formulas are widely available and may be preferred by healthcare providers for infants with specific dietary needs. Additionally, the availability of other non-dairy options, such as goat milk-based formulas, further limits the growth potential of the soy-based infant formula market.
