Baby Powder Market Analysis, Future Growth, Business Prospects, Size, Share, Development, Forecast to 2029

During the anticipated period of 2022-2029, the baby powder market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.20 percent. Numerous research from 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 ingredient. For instance, the top manufacturer of baby powder, Johnson and Johnson Company, expanded its line of products by launching three corn-starch-based baby powder varieties.
