The baby food market in Mexico is already large both in terms of number of babies and sales of baby food and the performance has been positive over the past six years as a whole. Sales have been held back however by the fall in the number of live births. The live birth rate has been on a generally downward path since the late 1990s. Nonetheless Mexico's crude birth rate remains among the highest in Latin America. The decline in the number of births which is expected to continue up to and beyond 2021 will have a dampening effect on the market although the relatively buoyant state of the economy and increased manufacturer competition will counteract this to some extent. Overall during the next six years the market is expected to experience growth amounting to 10.2% in volume and 39% in value.
- Despite a slight fall in the number of births the Mexican market for baby food has expanded by 9.6% in volume and 29.2% in value between 2009 and 2015.
- Milks dominate the market both in volume (where they accounted for 49.7% of consumption in 2015) and value (77.5% of retail sales).
- Nestlé remains dominant: in 2015 it is estimated to have held 71% of the market in terms of volume and 57% in terms of value. It is the only company to operate in all sectors of the market.
- The food retailing market is increasingly the domain of large-scale outlets and these dominate the distribution of baby food: in 2015 supermarkets and hypermarkets accounted for 71% of volume sales.
- Pharmacies took a share of 25.6%.
