Consumer Market Research

Many parents have put off raising children, and the number of births has fallen unremittingly to million in 2016. Growing demand for organic and non-GMO indicates that parents with sufficient income are prepared to spend it on food perceived as more beneficial for their babies.

Pune, India, 30th August 2017: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “The Baby Food Market in the US 2017”.         



"The Baby Food Market in the US 2017 Make an Inquiry about this news", is an analytical report which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the US market.

Consumption has fallen partly as a result of a lower number of births, and, in the case of baby milks, partly due to higher levels of breastfeeding. The infant formula market is distorted by the Federal WIC program.

Growth in newer segments - particularly pouches, snacks and toddler milks - has prevented even more serious declines. Forecasts for the US economy are currently relatively positive.

Coupled with the forecast increase in births from 2018 onwards, this is likely to lead to a more buoyant market.
