Summary
Largely due to the decline in the number of births, the value of the baby food market in Japan is not expected to show any growth in real terms between 2014 and 2020, although a small increase at current prices, around 7.9%, is forecast. All sectors except milk are expected to see volume growth, despite the decline in the number of births. In the non-milk sectors, manufacturers will continue to develop novel packaging alternatives as well as more recipe varieties. These latter will increasingly include international dishes and a wide variety of meal accompaniments such as breads, cakes, desserts and drinks. Products which can easily be eaten outside the home are also likely to become more popular.

Key Findings
- In volume terms, sales of wet meals rose by 19.5% between 2008 and 2014, while dry meals fell heavily, dropping by 38.7% over the same period. As a result, wet meals accounted for over 97% of volume sales in 2014.

- Glass jars have seen their share decline over the whole period, from 18.9% in 2008 to 16.4% in 2014, while plastic containers have seen something of resurgence over the past three years.

- The Japanese Statistical Bureau is forecasting a 12.2% drop in the number of women of child-bearing age between 2015 and 2020. The decline will be even more acute in the key childbearing years of 25-39, where a fall of 17.8% is predicted
