LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global baby changing stations market provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
Abhay Sinha, a lead research analyst from Technavio says, “Baby changing stations provide a smooth surface that facilitates the changing of diapers. These stations are situated at a convenient position in public restrooms and home nurseries. Baby changing stations are of two types, which include horizontal baby changing stations and vertical baby changing stations. Baby changing stations are either made of steel or plastic.”
While the number of dual-income households is on the rise in developing markets, growth is higher in developed markets such as Western Europe and North American countries like the US and Canada. The modern, fast-paced lifestyle in developed countries has led to the consumption of products that offer convenience and ease of use. In such countries, baby changing stations have become indispensable.

The top three emerging trends driving the global baby changing stations market according to Technavio research analysts are:
Rising investment in R&D
The market is witnessing increased expenditure in R&D, due to which there has been a development of many innovative applications and solutions. In addition, vendors are working to reduce the cost of upgrades and maintenance. The rapidly changing technology and changes in consumer preferences are forcing vendors to deliver innovative baby changing stations. These rising investments have fueled the development of new products, leading to innovations and patent applications.
Growing demand for portable baby changing stations
A portable baby changing station is fabricated from soft and flexible material. It provides a soft surface to rest the baby while changing diapers. In this mode, the baby's head is affixed to the rear portion of the back seat by a fastener. One or more netted pockets are positioned near the head to hold diapers and other changing supplies. Once the baby's diaper has been changed, the changing station folds into a compact shape while remaining fastened to the back seat.
“Portable baby changing stations always remain affixed to the automobile. Portable baby changing stations have also been disclosed in US patent literature. When people travel with babies, it is generally undesirable to rest a baby on a desk, table, or floor or directly on an automobile seat to change diapers,” says Abhay.
Diaper alert with smartphone application
Kimberly-Clark (Huggies) has developed an app that alerts parents when the baby wets the diaper. A sensor attached to the diaper notifies the parent through a smartphone app when it senses humidity. Other vendors in the market are also developing similar technologically advanced diapers to cater to the growing demand for convenient baby care products. Parents can also get a notification if the diaper identifies any possibility of the baby having health issues.
The key vendors are as follows:
- American Specialties
- Foundations Worldwide
- GENWEC Washroom Equipment and Company
- Koala Kare
