The global Baby Powder Market size is poised to expand at over 5.20% CAGR, surpassing a valuation of US$ 1,449.2 Mn through 2029. Shifting preference for organic ingredients in baby talc-powder is creating major tailwinds in the market. On account of this, the overall sales in the market registered year-on-year growth of 5% in 2022
Numerous research over the previous few years have suggested that talcum powder poisoning can occur when talc-based baby powder is breathed. When talc is ingested, symptoms include fever, coughing, twitching, difficulty breathing, collapsing, convulsions, and even death. As a result, producers are substituting plant-based ingredients such cornstarch, arrowroot, rice powder, baking soda, and tapioca starch for talcum as the foundation component.
For instance, Johnson & Johnson Company, the market leader in baby powder, expanded their line of products by introducing three variants of baby powder that are corn-starch-based.
