"The Baby Food Sector in Ireland, 2018", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Irish market.

The majority of mothers in Ireland use formula milks from birth or introduce formula milk by the second or third month, meaning that demand for first-stage and follow-on milks is very strong. The infant formula market has been strengthened by the high proportion of women aged 20-45 years of age who are in employment. Parents demand a greater diversity of baby foods to fit in with the ever-expanding choice available in adult foods. Manufacturers are providing more and more choices of milks and foods which claim to be organic.

• Retail sales of baby food have fallen by 11% and volumes by 20% due to price competition.
• Expenditure per capita rose by 4%, due mainly to significant unit price rises for wet meals and finger foods.
• Consumption of baby milk has continued to decline due to lower per capita consumption rates as a result of drops in consumer spending.
• The Irish market was traditionally characterised by a large dry meals category, but demand suffered from their relative lack of variety and convenience and, by 2017, wet meals accounted for the vast majority of baby meals.
