The Baby Food Market in Ireland 2017


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

The Irish population and its baby food market are both small. Between 2010 and 2016 the number of births fell by over 14%. This, coupled with keen price competition, has led to a clear downturn in sales. Since 2010, retail sales have fallen by 10% and volumes by 19%. Consumption of all products fell, with drinks experiencing the greatest decline. Expenditure per capita rose by 5%, due mainly to significant unit price rises for wet meals and finger food.

The number of births is expected to continue to fall, producing a brake on sales growth. By 2022, GlobalData expects the total baby food market to fall by 4.5% in volume but to rise by 11.3% in value. Value growth will come largely from the trend towards more expensive products, such as pouches, with overall volume forecast to decline and no sectors, apart from finger foods, likely to increase in volume terms.
