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

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

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
  • Ecolab
  • Foundations Worldwide
  • GENWEC Washroom Equipment and Company
  • Koala Kare
  • Lovair
