Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2014 -- The safety of baby food has become a major concern for parents after several contamination incidents in local baby food brands in recent years, including the fatal melamine contamination of infant formula in 2008. This has contributed to rapid growth in sales of foreign brands. For example, brands such as Enfamil have experienced increasing market shares in baby food, while many local brands have lost competitiveness. The growth in imported products has also led to increased usage of premium packaging, which is more attractive to, and reassuring for young parents. For example, metal tins witnessed buoyant volume growth of 21% in 2012, leading to an increase in its volume share in total packaging.

Total baby food packaging is predicted to see a slowdown in growth to a CAGR of 12% between 2012 and 2017, mostly due to the declining birth rate in China, in line with the global trend. Although it has been suggested that the one-child policy should be made more flexible so as not to distort China's demographics unduly in the long term, the government still asserts that it is a basic state policy which will remain in pace for the duration of the Twelfth Five-Year Plan, at least. In addition, the government's efforts to promote breastfeeding will be an obstacle to further market volume growth, especially for milk formula.
