Top 2 Factors Driving the Diaper Rash Cream Market

  • Increasing consumer awareness about natural product ingredients

    The global market for diaper rash creams is witnessing growth due to the certain advantages of these products over conventional diaper rash creams. One of the unique benefits of using diaper rash creams is that they provide instant relief from a burning sensation, which is very difficult to achieve otherwise, even with multiple home remedies.

    Diaper rash cream and related products that are organic in nature are increasingly being perceived as safer, and thus are accounting for growing popularity at a global level. Billowing demand for organic or natural personal care products is highly likely to benefit the manufacturers of diaper rash creams in coming years, translating into high revenues.

    However, higher price point of organic or natural products will constrain the diaper rash cream market revenues in the long run.

Easy OTC availability & increasing introduction of innovative product line-up

Diaper rash cream and related skin care products fall in the non-prescription category and thus are easily available over the counter (OTC), at a majority of drug stores and pharmacies, as well as hypermarkets and supermarkets.

Moreover, as manufacturers of diaper rash cream are augmenting investments in R&D of innovative product line-ups, it is highly likely that consumers will select from a wide range available on the market. Improving consumer awareness about product ingredients will also play a crucial role in pushing sales of innovative, clean labelled diaper rash cream in the global market.
