Press Release

“The Baby Food Sector in South Korea, 2018”, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the South Korean market.

Consumer behavior in South Korea has changed over the past two decades, as the country’s wealth and status has grown. The South Korean diet has become more westernized and this has increased demand for convenience foods, supported by the entry of foreign retailers into South Korea. Increasing affluence has produced strong demand for sophisticated quality goods and imported baby foods, especially as domestic production has declined. These trends have filtered down into the baby food market, and premium-priced infant formula and wet meals have become popular. Trade sources suggest that most new mothers in South Korea stick to the brand of infant formula recommended to them after birth.
