(Food-Beverage-News.Com, January 12, 2018 ) "The Baby Food Market in Germany, 2017" is an analytical report by Publisher which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Germany market.
Increasing numbers of births over the past five years have stimulated sales and led to an increase of 8.6% in retail value and 9.6% in volume consumption between 2010 and 2016. There has been an upturn in the number of births since 2011. One of the largest factors behind the increase in babies over the last two years is probably immigration. In 2015, 20.1% of all births were to women not holding German citizenship. Germany is among the top 20 countries in terms of GDP per capita. It is also a relatively egalitarian society with low levels of poverty. Although the economic situation is fairly good, future growth is expected to be muted. The number of births is also expected to fall towards the end of the period. As a result, between 2016 and 2022 volume sales are expected to rise by only 1.1%.
