The Global Infant Formula Market Report 2016 has been released. It comprises 54 pages, 5 tables and 44 charts and provides complete data on the artificial milk market and its various segments, as well as the main trends and issues to be addressed. It also focuses on the activities of the four main players in the sector: Nestlé, Danone, Mead Johnson Nutrition and Abbott Laboratories.
The report states that some of the key factors driving the growth of the infant formula market are the increase in the female labour force, the increase in disposable income in a demographic giant such as China, the rapid growth of electronic commerce in the Chinese market, urban growth, increasing globalization and the global increase in gross domestic product. It is the developing countries, particularly those in Asia Pacific, which have encouraged the expansion of the global market, especially China.
Despite strong growth, the expansion of the global market for infant formula is hampered by restrictions in China on some brands of milk powder and certain regulatory changes.
The report discusses policies and development plans as well as production processes and cost structures. The market analysis covers main areas including the USA, Europe, China and Japan. There is an analysis for each region on the size of the market and the end users.
As mentioned, the report focuses on the activities of the four main players in the sector, Nestlé, Danone, Mead Johnson Nutrition and Abbott Laboratories, and provides useful information such as company profiles, product images, sales figures, market shares and contact information. In short, in addition to providing extensive data on the state of the industry, it is an important source of information for companies and all those who are interested in the market.
