The Baby Food Sector in Russia, 2019

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

Despite financial incentives to encourage couples to have children, the number of births dropped to 1.6 million in 2018, 18% down on the 2014 peak. Income levels were hit hard by the 2015-2016 recession and remain well down on pre-crisis levels; wages and consumer spending power are much higher in urban than rural areas. Although the baby food sector has begun to recover as the economy has improved, consumption in 2018 was only 4% up on the 2016 low.
Meanwhile, although per capita consumption dipped in 2015-2016, it has now more than recovered.Value sales have risen significantly due to the devaluation of the Ruble and high levels of imports.

The government is keen to develop its domestic baby food industry, and provides subsidies to encourage local production of infant formula.Until recently Danone was the only major producer of infant formula locally, but Nestlé has a facility due to come on stream during 2019, and a number of investments by local companies are likely to bear fruit in the next few years.

Most infant formula is currently imported.The drop in the number of babies and rising levels of breastfeeding will act as a brake on the development of the market, compounded by an economic situation that remains challenging.

From 2018 to 2024, baby food consumption is forecast to increase by just 1%.
