Albany, NY, Jan. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In 2014, the market suffered a blow owing to a significant decline in the number of child births as well as from adverse economic conditions in some key markets. The report states that the market reported a decline of 5.6% over the six years until 2014. In addition to this, the sector of baby milks, which accounts for over 75% of the overall sales of the U.S. baby food market, also saw consistent decline as the number of breastfeeding mothers increased in the U.S. Changes in the WIC programme, which reduced the amount of infant formulae sold at subsidized rates, have also led to a significant decline in the market.
The report states that the sales of baby foods reduced by 15.4% in 2014 as compared to 2008. In the current market, the segment of milks accounts for over three-quarters of the total value of retail sales while the segment of wet meals accounts for nearly 20%. Between 2008 and 2014, the share of milks has declined in the market as consumption has fallen and prices have remained stable for the most part.

Baby Food in Sweden 2015
The Swedish baby food market has continued to be more buoyant than most European markets. This is due mainly to an upward trend in the number of births and to a relatively favorable economic climate. Growth will be largely as a result of the increasing number of live births predicted by the Swedish Statistical Office and strong growth in the milks, and to a slightly lesser extent in the meals sector. Organic and locally produced baby food is expected to perform well, as part of a marked trend generally towards healthier and allegedly more 'natural' foods.
