The Baby Food Market in France 2017

The Baby Food Market in France 2017

Summary

The Baby Food Market in France 2017, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the French market.

The number of births has been relentlessly downwards. The vast majority of families are able to afford commercially prepared baby food, but the financial crisis of 2008 has put incomes under pressure, fueling a trend towards home-made food. Although it remains the largest market in Western Europe and is highly sophisticated and segmented, the depressed economic situation has seen consumption of baby food drop by 14% between 2010 and 2016, and prices have fallen in real terms. The market is expected to continue performing better from 2017, but consumption is expected to increase by only 2.9% by 2022, as the number of births is likely to continue to fall. Retail sales may show some growth. Small increases in volumes of all sectors except baby drinks are expected.

  • France is a major producer of baby milks, and has strengthened its position in recent years, following the elimination of milk quotas and strong and growing demand from China.

  • The market is expected to continue performing better from 2017 onwards, building on the slightly more positive results of 2015 and 2016. However, during the period up to 2022, consumption is expected to increase by only 2.9%, as the number of births is likely to continue to fall, limiting the potential market for baby food.
