Baby food is regarded to be an ideal substitute for breast milk owing to the presence of essential and necessary nutrients that are efficient in aiding in the growth of infants.

However, a decline in the number of childbirths remains a key challenge to market growth.

There has been an increase in working women professionals. According to the World Bank, the share of females that constituted the total labor force of the country was reported to be 47.2% in 2021.

According to the German Federal Statistical Office, the national disposable income of the country in total increased from EUR 511.98 billion in January 2021 to EUR 524.66 billion in January 2021. Thus, the increasing national household income is expected to drive the demand for these products owing to increased purchasing power. This is in turn likely to drive the sales of baby food products, thus augmenting the market growth.

Danone launched this formula for parents looking for vegetarian, plant-based diets and flexitarian baby food options for their infants.
  • Based on product type, the German baby food market is segmented into dried baby food, milk formula, prepared baby food, and others.

The strong presence of market players in this segment like Bellamy's Organic and Bubs Organic, among others are expected to drive growth in the market.
