A baby wipe is a disposable piece of cloth treated with gentle cleansing agent, which is used for cleaning babies. These wipes are usually packaged inside plastic cases or tubs so that the fabric retains moisture and the product can be easily dispensed. There are two types of baby wipes, wet and dry wipes, available in the market. A wet wipe has moisture and cleans better than dry wipes. Dry wipes are much more portable and easy to handle. Baby wipes are highly absorbent materials and are even more useful during travel. Most new wipes available in the market today reduce risk of infection and uneasiness caused by wetness of the skin and are tested to prevent breeding of bacteria. Vendors are launching baby wipes that are softer on the skin, and also biodegradable.
Rise in disposable income of people in developing countries, changes in lifestyle, demand for child care products, and rise in number of working women fuel the popularity and demand of baby wipes. However, the raw materials used to manufacture baby wipes have plastic and other polymers, which take a lot of time to degrade thus posing an environmental threat. This factor majorly hinders the market growth. Use of innovative marketing techniques by key vendors would unfold various opportunities for the growth of the market in the future.
