KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Nielsen, Malaysia's population growth is expected to hit 34.9 million by the year 2025 with 25% of the total expected population representing newborns, infants and children. Coupled with Nielsen's latest Consumer Confidence Index of the Southeast Asia region at 110 points (compared to global average of 97 points) and rapid urbanisation, the children, baby and maternity industry is expected to see exponential growth creating a need for premium baby and maternity products. This growth would especially spur from the growing middle-class community. "Any parent would always want the best for their child, from the food they eat to the diapers they use. And they are willing to spend for it. Hence, for baby manufacturers, there's plenty at stake in the battle for baby bucks," observes Manisha Kinalekar, Director of Retailer Vertical for Nielsen Malaysia.
