Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Baby Food and Infant Formula Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Baby Food and Infant Formula Market: Abbott Laboratories, Danone SA, Mead Johnson & Co. LLC, Nestle SA, Ballamy Organics, Ella’s Kitchen Friesland , H.J. Heinz Co., Hero Group, HIPP, Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co. Ltd., Manna Foods, Meiji, Morinaga, Nurture Inc., Parent’s Choice, Plum Organics, Stonyfield Farm Inc. , Sprout Foods Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “The increase in organized retailing globally offers huge potential for this market because these products have a short shelf life, and can be easily spoiled if not stored in hygienic conditions and at a proper temperature. Earlier, retailers found it difficult to sell baby food and infant formula in developing countries because of a lack of storage facilities and the high chances of food becoming spoiled. Supermarkets equipped with cold storage facilities have solved this problem. People also get a lot of information about different aspects of baby food products such as the nutrition content, number of varieties, price, and brand names. Consumers can also compare different attributes of different baby food products. Global players are also able to enter new markets especially in the APAC region because of the support of organized retailing.”

According to the report, growing urbanization is one of the major drivers. In the recent past, developing countries have witnessed rapid urbanization, leading to an increase in disposable income and adoption of modern lifestyles. This has led to an increase in spending on baby food.

Further, the report states that declining birth rates in developed countries is one such challenge. A rise in unemployment in these countries has led many to delay marriage and to plan for babies at a later stage.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
