New Study: Baby Food in Netherlands; 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Dec 16 2015

The market for baby food in the Netherlands is well established and relatively mature. Despite its size, the market grew steadily up to 2008.

Since then, however, sales have declined in both volume and value, as the market has been adversely affected not only by the poor economic climate for much of the period, but also by lower numbers of annual births since 2009. All sectors except baby drinks are expected to show some growth in per capita terms, but increases in consumption are likely to be restrained. Average prices in cereals and drinks have been falling in real terms and further declines in real terms can be expected in 2015, as manufacturers seek to stimulate sales.

Key Findings

* Baby meals account for the highest proportion of volume sales, claiming 46.2% of total consumption in 2014, ahead of milks with 24.6%.
* Per capita consumption of all sectors has fallen over the period, with the exception of milks, which have seen a 5.8% increase, and wet meals, which have remained more or less stable.
* The majority of baby food in the Netherlands is sold through grocery stores (principally hypermarkets and supermarkets), at 81.7% by value in 2014, with the remainder of sales being made mainly through pharmacies and drugstores. On-line sales are growing.
