“China Baby Food Market Size by Categories, Distribution Channel, Market Share and Forecast, 2022-2027” is an analytical report which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Indian market.

The number of live births in China declined by 33.4% during 2010-2021, to reach 10.6 million in 2021. This resulted in a baby population of 39.4 million in 2021.

Overall growth in value terms has increased in recent years with the sector registering a CAGR of 4.2% during 2015-2021.

Baby milks remained by far the largest category in value terms with over 90% of the baby food sector, followed by baby cereals & dry meals. Nestlé and Feihe International were the top two companies in 2021. Nestlé retained the top spot in value during 2015-2021 and remained the leader in all the categories. E-retailers remained the leading distribution channel, accounting for nearly 31% of overall value sales in 2021. The analyst estimates that the number of live births will decrease over the forecast period in China. However, the market for baby food in the country is expected to grow in value and volume terms during 2021-2027, registering CAGR of 7.2% and 2.5%, respectively.
