Saudi Arabia to Grow at the Fastest Pace During the Forecast Period Fuelled by the Rapidly Expanding Retail Sector

Saudi Arabia is expected to dominate the GCC baby formula industry in the Middle East and Africa, owing to the rapidly developing retail sector and the growing western influence. In addition, the demand for baby formula is expected to grow in the region, owing to the growing awareness among the new parents regarding the health benefits of baby food in the overall development of the baby. Moreover, the growing penetration of leading market players in the region are expected to support the market growth. For instance, in 2018, Nestlé, a leading manufacturer of baby formula, announced its agreement to buy Pfizer’s infant nutrition business for USD 11.8 billion, in an endeavour to expand its distribution channel in the Middle East and Africa region.

 

Baby Formula: Market Segmentation
