The Baby Food Sector in Hungary, 2018

The Baby Food Sector in Hungary, 2018

Summary

The Baby Food Sector in Hungary, 2018, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Hungarian market.

Hungary's birth rate remains among the lowest in Europe. Demand for baby food has held up well, although much of the growth has come in the last four years, boosted by higher numbers of births and economic recovery. The high price of baby food has deterred higher consumption levels. Several manufacturers produce baby food within the country, including Hipp, and local manufacturer Univer. Together, Danone, Hipp, and Nestlé accounted for 63% of value in 2017. Danone and Hipp are active in all categories, and Nestlé is absent only from drinks. Danone is the clear leader in milks and cereals, while Hipp leads the wet meals and drinks categories. Other players tend to focus on one or two areas. Cereals, wet meals, and drinks are now largely sold in food outlets (taking 71% of sales) and drugstores (26% of sales), with the latter gaining ground. Since the ending of the monopoly on the sale of first-stage formulae in pharmacies, both food outlets and drugstores have increased their share of sales, and 63% of milks are now sold via non‑pharmacy outlets. Growth prospects for the period up to 2023 are relatively good: real GDP growth is forecast to remain at 2%-3% per year. However, political instability threatens to undermine this. The number of live births is expected to continue to increase gently. As a result, total volume is predicted to grow.

Scope

  • New legislation governing the promotion of infant formula and follow-on formula took effect on July 1, 2016. This means that sales representatives must obtain an ID issued by the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (NIPN) if they want to meet with healthcare professionals, including pharmacists, to promote their products. Companies or sales representatives must also comply with registration obligations before they are allowed to conduct promotional activities directed at healthcare professionals.
  • Sales of first-stage milks have been adversely impacted by an increase in non-exclusive breastfeeding and a fall in the number of births up to 2013 and as a result hold less than 20% of category value.
  • There is no official baby food production data available in Hungary, although several manufacturers produce baby food within the country. These include Hipp, which manufactures most of its cereals, wet meals, and juices in Hungary, as well as local manufacturers, principally Univer.
  • Danone is the clear category leader of Cereals & Dry Meals, with a 46.5% value share in 2017, followed by Nestlé, Humana Milchunion & Hipp.
