A child car seat, or a child restraint system, a child seat, a seat designed specifically to protect children from injury or death during vehicle collisions. Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car safety seats helps keep children safe. High disposable income and increasing spending on passenger cars are also creating a positive impact on the baby car seat market. A growing birth rate, especially in countries like China and India, is expected to fuel the demand for Baby Car Seats in the global market. The recent publication of Bonafide Research under the title- Middle East & Africa Baby Car Seat Market Outlook, 2026 classified the market into baby car seat types and sales channels, across regions and countries.

Despite the high-income level in Middle Eastern countries, the region needs to improve the use of child restraint systems to reduce the incidence of preventable injuries to tiny passengers. The region could barely manage to reach a share of 10% in the global market. In the year 2015, the market value of baby car seats in this region was at USD 427.30 Million, growth majorly held back due to the preference towards holding a kid in hand rather than buckling them up. Unavailability and expense cannot be cited as barriers to use the baby seat in the region. Yet, the market is expected to luxuriate with an anticipated CAGR of over 10%, noticeably the highest rate globally.

Many in the region still don’t see a baby car seat as one of the mandatory items in baby care products. It is a very common sight to see babysitting on a mother’s lap or an older child jumping about in the back seats, while the father drives like a madman weaving in and out the traffic. Unfortunate enough that the people take the safety of their child much lightly and trust fate rather than taking necessary precautions, the infant baby car seat is much popular. The infant baby seats held a share of approx. 40% in the market, while the convertible baby seat could hardly curl up to USD 83.66 Million in the year 2015. Cost is the big advantage for the convertible baby seat as it can be modified along with the baby’s transition. As starting with convertible seats requires the purchase of only once, unlike the purchase of two seats if started with an infant car seat, the segment is expected to be growing with a CAGR of more than 11% in the coming period.

The areas for improvement include requiring user manuals for all seats, especially in the local language; requiring that all car seats comply with globally accepted safety standards, especially for expiry/manufacturing dates. With a provision for detailed instruction in the local language, the preference for the hypermarket & supermarket segment holds more than half of the share in the region. Yet, with the increasing time constraints, young parents are opting for a virtual comparison over the physical touch & feel shops, allowing the online sales channels to hike at an anticipated CAGR of more than 17%. Given the harsh local climate, it would be much potential for the marketers to introduce further varieties of CRSs in the market.

In the Eastern Mediterranean Region, the WHO reports that only two countries have a national law requiring child restraint use, Saudi Arabia and Gaza. Even these two were not rates as ‘good’, as per the Global Status Report on Road Safety 2013. Given that Qatar and the other Gulf States are HICs with adequate resources for enforcement, laws, and regulations, requiring CRS use should be in place. Parents need to be educated about the importance of using a child seat and how it may save the life of their child. Many parents believe that the safest place for their children is in their arms when they travel in a vehicle. But in the event of a traffic accident, even at low speed, it would be almost impossible to hold on to a baby. Nurses are the best people to convince parents that they should instead leave the hospital with their baby strapped into a child's seat.
