South Korea Baby Products Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.2% During 2024-2032, Aided by a Significant Increase in Demand for Premium Baby Care Items

South Korea Baby Products Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘South Korea Baby Products Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2024 and 2032. The market is being aided by a significant increase in demand for premium baby care items.

A significant factor driving the South Korea baby products market growth is the growing consumer preference for organic and eco-friendly options. As parents become increasingly aware of the potential health risks posed by synthetic chemicals, they are demonstrably gravitating towards products formulated with natural ingredients. This trend is particularly evident in the surging demand for organic certified baby skincare and food products, reflecting a growing focus on conscious consumption and prioritising the well-being of their infants.


The rise of K-culture, encompassing South Korean music, dramas, and fashion, has demonstrably influenced the market. Popular K-celebrities endorsing baby brands and embodying modern parenting approaches have significantly impacted consumer choices and market trends. This endorsement lends credibility to specific brands and styles, shaping what resonates with parents seeking the best for their children.


Furthermore, the rise of dual-income households, fuelled by increasing numbers of working women, coincides with growing disposable income and a heightened focus on improved living standards. This creates a demand for convenient and reliable baby care solutions, and the market is well-positioned to meet this need with its established and dependable products.


Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) is one of the market leaders in baby products. The company offers diapers, wipes, and training pants under various brand names, including Huggies, Pull-Ups, Good Nites, DryNites/All Pyjama Pants, Little Swimmers, Kleen Bebe, Green Finger (offering infant and child skin care products in Korea).
