The Baby Food Sector in China, 2019

Summary

“The Baby Food Sector in China, 2019”, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Chinese market.

Despite the scrapping of the one-child policy, birth numbers fell to 15.2 million in 2018. Sales of baby food are focused in the major cities, although increasingly affluent consumers are emerging in lower-tier cities and some rural areas. Although the market is still underdeveloped, it has benefited from greater consumer spending power, rising urbanization, and increased numbers of working women. Baby milks continue to dominate, accounting for 92.5% of value sales. Compulsory registration of infant formula from January 2018, disrupted sales less than expected. Most milks are imported, due to consumer preference for imported products, but most cereals, meals, and other products are produced locally. The market remains highly fragmented, reflecting the difficulties in achieving nationwide distribution, although all the larger companies are now trying to expand their geographic and channel distribution. Nestlé (including Wyeth) and Danone continue to dominate, but Feihe has ousted Mead Johnson from third position. Heinz dominates in the non-milks category. The major distribution channels for baby food have changed dramatically over the past few years, with specialist mother & baby stores now handling 50% of sales. China has the world’s second largest baby population and low per capita consumption, and untapped potential remains vast. However, the high cost of child-rearing and the lower number of women of childbearing age will restrain increases in births. Conversely, sales should be boosted by improved distribution and rising incomes.
