The Baby Food Sector in the Philippines, 2019

"The Baby Food Sector in the Philippines, 2019", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Philippines market.

The number of babies and infants aged 0-3 has fallen by 6.5% since 2012, but still remained at the high level of almost five million in 2018. While the majority of the population cannot afford commercially prepared baby food, with traditional weaning foods largely used instead. The sector rose by 14.4% in value during 2012-2018, to ₱54.6 billion (US$1 billion). This is equivalent to a fall of 4% in real terms. Nestlé (including Wyeth) and Mead Johnson manufacture baby milks in the Philippines, mostly using imported raw materials. As a result, imports are relatively low. Milks are by far the largest category, accounting for 87.6% of value sales in 2018, compared with 88.3% in 2012. The share of cereals has risen from 11.5% in 2012 to 12%, while the share of wet meals and other baby foods has remained tiny, at only around 0.3%.
