Over the historic period as a whole, Baby Food manufacturers in New Zealand have been able to exploit demand for baby food amongst slightly older infants, a strategy which has kept growth from decelerating faster. Although all sectors apart from juices have demonstrated some growth in terms of value, in volume terms overall sales have stagnated, due largely to the decline in birth numbers over the review period. Value growth has been driven mainly by the trend towards pouches in the wet meals sector. Per capita consumption of baby food is 9.2% higher than in 2009. Per capita expenditure increased by 31.7% between 2009 and 2015.
The New Zealand baby food market has grown by 18.4% in value terms over the period from 2009 to 2015, although it has stagnated in volume terms. Sales have been held back by the continuous fall in the number of births.
Milks account for 60.5% of value sales, although their share has fallen over the review period. Wet meals, on the other hand, have seen their share of value sales rise from 27.5% in 2009 to 35.3% in 2015. Cereals accounted for the remaining 4.2% in 2015.
Heinz Wattie’s and Danone lead the market and between them accounted for almost three‑quarters of value sales in 2015. Danone is the leader in milks, and only a little way behind Heinz Wattie’s in the total market.
Over the forecast period as a whole, volume growth is expected to reach 8.2% by 2021. Value sales are forecast to increase by 27.2%.
