According to the report titled, “Europe Baby Food Market Research Report, 2027”, published by Actual Market Research, the market is analysed through bifurcation into two segment categories. These segments are differentiated on the basis of product type and sale channels. The demand for convenience and variety of baby food in the region which is the result of increasing population living an urban lifestyle has helped the market achieve a value of around USD 15 Billion. Along with this the increasing demand for value added nutritional baby food is a factor driving the market in the region during the forecast period and is expected to contribute to a CAGR of around 4%. The growth of the middle class economy in the region with increasing disposable income, along with the increasing number of working female population living a hectic lifestyle are also factors boosting the market. Changing consumers behaviours have shifted them towards more conscious health decisions about themselves and their baby, which leads to the increasing demand for natural and organic baby food. Furthermore, safety measures in terms of baby food packaging are a major concern among young mothers. As a result of this eco-friendly packaging is gaining traction, supporting various major companies to discriminate the products in the market. With the rising awareness regarding the effects of chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, etc., consumers are opting for foods that are free from these. Thus, the baby food market is propelling stronger growth in this region. The innovative packaging and incorporation of special ingredients that give an additional benefit to the product are also driving the market. The existing players are expanding their product portfolio, including organic foods, to their product range to gain a competitive advantage and strengthen their position in the market. Parents are increasingly opting for healthy and ready-to-eat food offerings, such as instant milk formula and snacks, which require needless or no preparation time and can be instantly provided to the baby. On the basis of product type the milk formula segment has historically been the largest segment with a market share of little over 50%. But with recent change in trends the dried baby food market is predicted to grow with the higher CAGR of around 5%. The Hyper/Supermarkets have traditionally been the preferred point of sales for the parents, but with the recent technological advancements in mobile devices has provided growth to the online sales channel making the segment with the highest growth rate.
