"The Baby Food Sector in Singapore, 2018", is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Singapore market.
The development of the baby food sector in Singapore goes beyond the realms of disposable income and is more often dependent on attitudes to industrially prepared foods in general, the desire for convenient alternatives, and the employment status of women. Baby food manufacturers have come to benefit, particularly in the meals category as despite a preference by mothers to feed home-cooked meals to their babies, they increasingly find little time to prepare them. However, demand for sweet meals has been held back as many mothers prefer to mash fresh fruit instead, as a healthier option. Another factor that has affected the consumption of baby foods is the significant number of expatriates in Singapore, who demand more sophisticated or 'western' products for their babies.
