The top three product type segments for the baby car seat market in the US are discussed below:

Infant car seat

Infant car seats are always rear-facing and suitable for infants up to 40 lbs. in weight and 35 inches in height. They are mainly used for newborn babies and babies up to the age of two years. The most prominent reason for using an infant car seat is the concern for the child's safety. Even though a newborn baby can be seated in a convertible baby car seat, children under 20 lbs. of weight are best secured in an infant car seat.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead toys and baby products research analyst from Technavio, “The added features in baby car seats ensure more safety and comfort to the babies while traveling. For instance, Evenflo ProSeries LiteMax introduced an advanced side impact testing technology in the infant baby car seat called Lyf+Guard, which reduces the risk of injury during a side impact collision. The proper installation of baby car seats can also reduce the risks of injuries while traveling.”

Booster car seat

Booster car seats are mainly suitable for school-aged children. Booster seats are also used for toddlers. According to the laws across various states in the US, while traveling, booster car seats should be used for children having a weight of at least 40 lbs. During the event of a crash, without a booster seat, the seat belt can cause injury to the child. Wearing a normal seat belt can cause stomach, liver, or spleen damage during a crash.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the US report suggested that the use of booster car seats is around 45% effective compared to a normal car seat, and they can reduce the risk of injuries among children in the age group of 4-8 years. The increased preference for safety measures during traveling drives the market for booster car seats in the US,” adds Manjunath.

Combination baby car seat

The combination model of the baby car seat is mostly a forward-facing model. Combination baby car seat mainly consists of a 5-point internal harness. Using this harness, the combination model can be used as a forward-facing baby car seat. This model of baby car seats can also be used as a harnessed booster car seat.

Some of the prominent vendors offering combination baby car seats in the US are RECARO and Evenflo. For instance, RECARO Performance SPORT model offers a combination baby car seat that can be used for a weight range between 20 lbs. and 120 lbs. It also uses a patented twist-resistant HERO technology to prevent the twisting of the harness.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Britax
  • Evenflo
  • Graco Children's Products
