The report segments the global baby car seat market by product and can be divided into three broad categories:

  • Forward-facing car seat
  • Booster seat
  • Rear-facing car seat

Forward-facing car seat

Forward-facing car seats are mostly used until a child attains the age of eight years and up to 65-80 pounds of weight. Different types of forward-facing cars seats are available in the market, such as convertible forward-facing, all-in-one forward-facing, and combination seats. The combination seats include a combined feature of forward-facing and booster seats. Britax, Chicco, and Newell Rubbermaid are some of popular vendors providing forward-facing car seats.

According to Vijay Sarathy, lead research analyst at Technvio for general retail goods and services , “Stringent government regulations worldwide regarding the use of baby car seats are expected to boost the sales of forward-facing car seats during the forecast period, especially in countries like the US, the UK, and China.”

Booster seat

Booster seats are used for children who weigh in the range of 80-100 pounds. These seats raise the child's sitting position to ensure that the lap and shoulder belts in the vehicle hold the child safely in position. Booster seats prevent the child from getting injured in the stomach or spine during accidents. Some of the booster seats available in the market are high back, backless, combination as booster, all-in-one, and three-in-one boosters. Some of the popular vendors of booster seats include Britax, Graco, Cybex Solution, and Chicco.

Factors such as rising instances of obesity in children in developed countries like the US are expected to increase the sales of these products. As per current trends, the number of overweight or obese infants and young children globally will increase to 70 million by 2025. “This factor will play a key role in positively influencing market growth over the next five years as baby seats have to be changed with the increasing weight of the child,” says Vijay.

Rear-facing car seat

Rear-facing car seats are used for children under one year of age, and in some countries, the seats are allowed for use until the baby weighs 30 pounds. These seats are recommended for infants in order to provide more safety to the fragile neck, back, and head of babies and reduce the number of injuries.

The rules and regulations for the use of baby car seats vary in different countries. For example, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends the use of rear-facing baby car seats until the age of two years, whereas in the UK all babies aged under 15 months must travel in rear-facing car seats.

Different types of rear-facing car seats are available in the market like rear-facing only, convertible rear-facing, and all-in-one rear-facing seats. The convertible products are expensive but considered cost-effective for long-term use as parents do not have to change them frequently. Some of the popular brands of convertible baby cars seats are Britax, ClickTight Convertibles, Chicco, Nextfit, Evenflo Sure Ride, Graco size4me, and Maxi-Cosi Pria 70.
