The global baby food market is witnessing rapid growth due to the increasing number of working women, and the increasing parental concerns about nutrition.
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/07/2011 -- According to a new market research report, ‘Global Baby Food Market (2009–2014)’, published by MarketsandMarkets (http://www.marketsandmarkets.com), the global baby food market is expected to be worth US$37.6 billion by 2014, recording an estimated CAGR of 5.0% from 2009 to 2014. The North American market is expected to account for nearly 37% of the total revenues.
The target consumers of commercially-available baby food range from infants (babies aged 6 to 12 months) to toddlers (children up to three years old). Baby food is available in various flavors and in both solid and liquid form. Modern-day time constraints have reduced the use of homemade baby food in both developed as well as developing nations. While U.S. and Europe hold a major share of the global baby food market, emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, Russia, and Romania represent a high growth rate.
Bottled baby food forms the largest market segment; and is expected to reach US$9.9 billion by 2014 at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2009 to 2014. The markets for baby cereals and frozen baby food are estimated to record revenues of US$9.9 billion and US$ 7.8 billion respectively in 2014 on account of the increasing awareness about baby food products especially in Asia, The markets for baby soups and snacks – estimated to be US$ 3.9 billion and US$5.9 billion in 2014 – present good opportunities as these markets currently have only a limited number of products.
North America is the largest baby food market; and is expected to be worth US$14.17 billion by 2014, accounting for nearly 37% of the total revenues. Europe is the second largest segment and is expected to reach US$10.8 billion by 2014 with a CAGR of 4.4%.
