Summary
Consumer behaviour in South Korea has changed over the past two decades as the country's wealth and status has grown. The country is also becoming more middle class. As affluence has become more widespread, it has produced strong demand for sophisticated quality goods and imported foods, especially as domestic production has declined. This increase in the size of middle class is causing an expansion in the number of potential baby food consumers as products become more affordable to a larger group of people. Korean mothers have recently been keen to try and use imported brands such as Aptamil and Holle, which have a good reputation, although these brands are not available in the major retail outlets and have to be mostly purchased from abroad via the Internet.

Key Findings
- The decline in the number of births in 2013 and 2014 brought about a corresponding drop in consumption. Overall consumption rose by only 1.4% between 2008 and 2014.

- Cereals and dry meals constitute the second largest category but volumes have declined in the face of growing competition from ready-to-eat baby meals.

- Multinational representation is very low in South Korea, due mainly to the supremacy of the two leading domestic suppliers, Maeil and Namyang.

- Small-scale outlets remain important but have been losing share to the hypermarket/supermarket and convenience store sector, which accounts for the majority of baby food sales.
