In addition, with the growing population of working women in Europe Middle East & African countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Israel, etc., the demand for organic baby food has increased noticeably, which, in turn, has largely contributed to the growth of the organic baby food products.

Key Trends in the Market

  • Growing Investment by the Baby Food Manufacturers in the Organic Baby Food Industry

The growing concerns of parents regarding their infant’s health have influenced the organic food market drastically in recent years. Further, to provide healthier diets to their children to safeguard them from vitamins & minerals deficiency, parents are seeking natural & organic baby food products. Consequently, the growing demand for chemical-free foodstuffs among parents has pushed manufacturers to produce a variety of organic baby food products with additional nutrition value. This led companies to invest heavily in organic baby food products to bring out some innovation in the segment to revitalize the declining category.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Europe Middle East & Africa Organic Baby Food Market

The Organic Baby Food segment saw an increase in demand during COVID-19 due to factors, such as increased consumer awareness of healthier food alternatives. Similarly, people began looking for organic baby food products with improved nutrition to improve children's health. Furthermore, as the goods were available & people preferred to purchase healthy products for their children & families, online sales channels coincided with this trend by providing easy availability of organic baby food as easy door-step delivery.

Moreover, post-COVID-19, the demand for different brands of organic baby food products raised significantly as the restrictions were slowly eased. Additionally, the expansion of organic product offerings by different companies as well as the ease of purchase was observed in the respective period. Consequently, this growing trend has further driven the market of organic baby food products in the EMEA region & is estimated to propel the demand in the forthcoming years.

Market Segmentation

Based on the Type:

  • Milk Formula
  • Prepared Baby Food
  • Dry Baby Food

Of them all, the Organic Milk Formula segment held a sizeable market share in the Europe Middle East & Africa region. The demand for milk formula comes in the initial years (6 months to 2 years), for an infant during the food transition from mother’s milk to solid food. During this process, the digestion systems of the kids are considered to be sensitive to food, due to which consumers prefer to use organic milk to reduce digestion-related issues. Furthermore, several leading companies, such as Nestle, HiPP, etc., have extensively grown their existing product categories under the baby milk formula segment to tap the growth potential in the baby food segment.

Based on the Distribution Channel:

  • Supermarket/Hypermarket
  • Convenience Store
  • Online Retail Store
  • Other Distribution Channel (Discount Stores, Specialty Stores, etc.)

Among them, the Supermarket/Hypermarket distribution channel seized remarkable growth in the Organic Baby Food market during 2017-21 in Europe Middle East & Africa regions. Unflinching availability of supermarkets/hypermarkets during the period of COVID-19 has played a crucial role in the segment sustaining its major market share for the sales of organic packaged food. Thus, supportive government policies in countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Germany, France, and others in Europe Middle East & Africa region, have increased the revenue share of hypermarkets & supermarkets. However, with the advent of the coronavirus pandemic, consumers were more prone to adopt online platforms due to worldwide mobility restrictions.

In lieu of this, the online retail stores' showed impressive growth during the historical period for the sales of organic food in the EMEA region. Further, the online sales channels witnessed a surge in demand for organic baby food due to the increasing supply chain availability & the growing number of online customers with available online transactions. Moreover, due to the larger availability of organic baby food brands for comparison, lucrative offers on brands, economical pricing, etc., online sales channels are largely preferred by the consumers, thereby expected to grow in the upcoming years.

Market Dynamics:

Key Driver: Rise in Working Woman Population in the EMEA Region to Positivity Impact the Market Growth

The working woman population in the region, especially in Europe & the Middle East, has grown in the historical years, due to which the demand for baby food products has grown extensively. According to the European Commission, Europe had 67 per cent of working-class women, which was significantly higher than other regions such as the Middle East and Africa, resulting in higher consumer adoption of organic baby food.

Moreover, with the high rate of working women, the availability of home-cooked food to the kids has significantly decreased. Furthermore, with the growing awareness among working women about the benefits of organic baby food for their babies, the demand for the Organic Baby Food market has witnessed a surge in the EMEA region.

Possible Restraint: Premium Pricing of Organic Baby Food Products to Hinder the Market Growth

The cost of organic products is higher because the majority of these products are made from plant extracts, which are considered a costly ingredient in the production of organic products, limiting the adoption of organic baby food products. Besides, the usage of chemical-free fertilizer, pesticides, and fungicides leads to lowered production output compared to conventional farming, further keeping the prices of raw materials at a premium.

Moreover, the other reason acting as a restraining factor in the growth of the Organic Baby Food market is due to lack of awareness among individuals regarding the nutritional benefits offered by these organic baby food products, hence acts as a challenge to the growth of Organic Baby Food market in the countries of EMEA region.

Growth Opportunity: Rising Organic Farming Boost the Production of Organic Baby Food Products

Growing health concerns among parents regarding their infant health seized the demand for more natural & organic baby food products in the Europe Middle East & Africa region. The growing demand for chemical-free products has necessitated the scope for organic farming in the region. Organic farming is a method that is used to promote sustainability, thus offering numerous health & environmental benefits. Further, to promote sustainable economic development, governments of EMEA countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Germany, France, etc., have taken necessary initiatives to promote organic farming to offer various food products in the market. For instance:

  • In 2021, European Union announced Green Deal Plan to boost organic food production in the region. It also aims to enhance the production & consumption of organic products by providing 25% of agricultural land available for organic farming by 2030.

Additionally, these initiatives would create several opportunities for new market players to launch new organic food products in the market of the EMEA region, thereby inclining the growth of the Organic Baby Food market in the foreseen years.
