About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Baby food experienced 9% current value growth in 2013. This growth was not across the board and was largely confined to milk formula, which experienced a 12% value increase. Most of this was not due to demand from Australian parents, but from parents in China. Concerns about the quality of milk formula in China is leading to Chinese parents attempting to source their milk formula from elsewhere around the globe. A “grey market” trade is flourishing, in which Chinese nationals living in Australia purchase milk formula in bulk before mailing it to China. The result has been a surge in demand for milk formula in Australia over 2012 with the market growing 22% before easing slightly to 12% in 2013. It has also resulted in significant shortages of milk formula at retailers. In an attempt to remedy this situation, limits have been introduced as to how many units can be purchased in one transaction, with some retailers only allowing single units to be sold. Shortages were particularly severe in 2012 due to the Year Of The Dragon, a year in which it is considered good luck to be born. This led to a further spike in births in China, consequently putting more strain on milk formula supplies in Australia. Growth has been particularly strong in toddler milk formula and again this is largely due to demand from China, where children consume baby milk formula until an older age.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • As the growth in baby food has shifted from prepared baby food to baby formula, so has the market leadership changed hands, from Heinz Co Australia Ltd’s Heinz brand, to infant formula brands such as Nestlé Australia Ltd’s S-26, the new category leader with a 23% value share, as well as Nutricia Australia’s brands, Karicare and Aptimil, with 16% and 11% value share, respectively. It is possible, however, that these gains by infant formula brands might be short lived, since their popularity in 2012/2013, however, is less to do with the brands’ popularity in Australia, and more to do with these brands’ popularity in China and particularly amongst Chinese nationals and tourists purchasing baby milk formula from Australian retailers then mailing it back home for profit. Bellamy Organic Pty Ltd’s brand Bellamy Organic has also seen its share increase as a result of the popularity of organic baby milk formula reaching a 3% share of baby food in 2013. Karicare also experienced a wave of bad press in 2013, due to a botulism scare that ultimately turned out to be a false alarm. The damage to the Karicare brand has been significant however, as has the effect on its market share.

PROSPECTS

  • Following on from the strong growth witnessed since 2007, baby food in Australia is about to enter a period of far less vibrant growth. The rise of the birth rate that occurred since 2007 is set to subside, the boom produced by Chinese nationals mailing baby formula back home about to disappear, whilst social trends are moving away from manufactured baby food. A constant value CAGR of only 3% is expected over the forecast period; a stark contrast compared to the 9% constant value CAGR of 2008-2013.
