"The Baby Food Sector in Thailand 2017", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Thailand market.

The environment in Thailand has not been conducive towards the development of the baby food sector, which underwent a 7.5% drop in consumption between 2010 and 2016. Women are increasingly employed in professional and skilled jobs. This is likely to mean an increase in income, but a decrease in spare time, and in general has a tendency to favor the purchase of baby foods. The baby food sector is forecast to show some recovery in volume terms over the next six years, due to higher per capita consumption in all categories, and despite the expectation that the number of births will continue to decrease. Sales of baby milks are expected to show slow growth. Consumption of cereals will remain more or less stable, while the very small meals category will show buoyant growth.

• The baby food sector continues to be fairly sluggish compared with the boom years a decade ago. The environment has not been conducive towards the development of the baby food sector, which underwent a 7.5% drop in consumption between 2010 and 2016.
• Sales are dominated by milks, at 93% of value and 92.5% of volume, but consumption has declined and prices have come under pressure, holding down the value increase to 13%.
• Wet meals have been the only segment to show volume growth, as they are primarily purchased by affluent working women, who are less affected by economic difficulties, but this remains a tiny segment, accounting for less than 3% of both value and volume
• Multinationals enjoy a high profile, with the top three holding over 90% of sales. Most are involved primarily or exclusively in the milks sector.
• Thailand has one of the lowest levels of exclusive breastfeeding in the world, and this, combined with growing affluence, led to growth in milk consumption up to 2008.
• In August 2014, UNICEF and its partners launched the “powdered milk = risk” campaign, aimed at preventing mothers from mistakenly believing that formula-milk is as good as breast milk for their babies.
