Baby food traditionally came in glass jars but now packaging has shifted to plastics and other materials for their easy storage and lower cost. Packaging of baby food depends on the type of baby food like dried, prepared, milk formula, and other baby food. Baby food comes in packages such as shaped, semi-liquid, liquid, folding cartons, thin wall containers, metal cans and stand-up pouches. Stand-up pouches have an increasing demand because of their long shelf life.

Geographically, the baby food market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of world. Asia Pacific has the highest demand because of growing population of infants in countries like India and other developing countries.

Some of the major drivers for this market are rising demand of stand up pouches, thin wall containers because of their hygienic, safety, light weight, easy to carry and reusable nature. The preservation and long shelf life of these packets is an added advantage. While packaging these products, the plastic has BPA (Bisphenol A) which is harmful for infants and toddlers and so has been banned by the governments of the U.S., Canada, and Europe and this is one of the inhibitors for the growth of this market. Increase in preference for foods packed in microwaveable plastic tubs and pouches by teenagers has increased their demand. Innovations for reducing cost and packaging in biodegradable materials like paper and increased demand from rural areas for baby foods are opportunities for this market.
