The Baby Food Sector in Turkey, 2018

The Baby Food Sector in Turkey, 2018

Summary

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

In 2016 the number of births began to fall, but the Turkish baby food market has performed strongly over the past six years as a whole, stimulated by a generally buoyant economy and strong marketing by manufacturers. The last two years have seen a slowdown in volume growth as a result of a less positive economy, but high inflation coupled with currency depreciation has forced prices and value sales up. Several manufacturers produce baby food locally, notably Hero, as well as a number of Turkish manufacturers of liquid milks, baby cereals, and finger foods. Danone dominates, claiming almost two-thirds of retail sales in 2017, and leads in all categories except finger foods. Its nearest rivals are Hero and Hipp. Baby food is widely available in supermarkets and hypermarkets. Food outlets account for almost 61% of value sales, with pharmacies/drugstores relegated to 38% in 2017. A large variety of products are available online, but e-commerce sales remain very low. As a result of a worsening economy and political uncertainty, the value of the Turkish lira against major currencies has dropped, making imported products appreciably more expensive. However, a growing middle class is able to afford baby foods, and demand among this group is growing. GlobalData expects that sales of baby food will increase, with the strongest growth coming from the underdeveloped wet meals category, and growing-up milks.

Scope
  • First stage milks continue to constitute the largest segment, accounting for almost 29% of volume in 2017. Second stage formulae account for a quarter of volume sales. Special dietary milks are the smallest segment, but are nonetheless significant. They are currently thought to hold 18.8% of sales by volume in 2017.
  • Baby cereals are considerably more expensive than standard cereals, which has limited the category's growth potential. Manufacturers have so far failed to convince consumers that baby cereals are a different and superior product, and the sector's reliance on imported baby cereals.
  • The Meals category so far seems resistant to innovation. Attempts to introduce pouches have not been successful. Although Hipp continues to sell Früchte Spass, Hero has withdrawn from this segment.
  • The Baby Drinks category is the smallest in the baby food sector, accounting for only around 1% of value sales.
  • Potential sales will be affected by the gradual decline in the number of babies aged 0-3, which will drop from 3.9 million in 2017 to 3.8 million in 2023, but a more influential factor will be the performance of the economy. Although up to 2023 the annual rate of real growth is only forecast to rise from 3.3% to 4%.
