The market research analysis categorizes the global baby car seat market into four major product segments:
- Infant car seat
- Combination car seat
- Booster car seat
- Convertible car seat
Global infant car seat market
The global infant car seat market is expected to reach USD 780 million by 2021. These car seats are rear-facing and are generally used for six to twenty-four-month old babies. However, some babies grow faster and outgrow these seats even before they are twenty-four-months old. In such cases, the parents need to replace the seats immediately, but they shouldn't replace them with forward-facing ones. This is because babies should always be seated in rear-facing car seats till twenty-four months of age.
“Infant car seats can be used for multiple purposes such as carrying the baby out of the car to the house, grocery, or anywhere. Infant baby car seats account for the largest share of the global infant car seat market as most parents carry infants wherever they go,” says Brijesh Kumar Choubey, a lead analyst at Technavio for toys and baby products research.
Global combination car seat market
These car seats can be changed from rear-facing formats to forward-facing formats using a harness and tether. These car seats have different functionalities and can be used for children of different sizes and weights. They also allow children to stay in the rear-facing position for longer periods of time because of their design.
Global booster car seat market
Booster car seats are mostly used for toddlers and are usually forward-facing. As infant car seat laws vary across states, many people prefer booster car seats to infant car seats that are also suitable for children with higher weight than that of infants.
These car seats have their own set of buckles or harnesses. However, the children sitting on these seats can also use the regular seat belts available in the cars. Booster seats are used for children who weigh between 80 pounds and 100 pounds. These seats raise the child's position to ensure that the vehicle's usual lap and shoulder belts hold the child safely in position.
“Booster car seats prevent stomach and spine injuries among children during accidents. Some variants of the booster car seats available in the market are high back, backless, combination as booster, all-in-one, and three-in-one boosters,” says Brijesh.
Global convertible car seat market
Convertible car seats can be used from birth until the child outgrows car seats. Thus, these seats yield high return on investment. They can be used in both forward-facing and rear-facing formats depending on the child's weight. The disadvantages of convertible car seats are that they are not portable and cannot be used as infant carriers. They do not have bases and cannot be easily moved from one car to another.
