Thailand has been beset with a difficult economic environment against a backdrop of political instability and social unrest. The number of live births has fluctuated but the underlying trend is downwards. The baby food market increased by nearly 20% between 2009 and 2015. It is a market strongly dominated by milks, which in 2015 accounted for 92.8% of value sales. Value growth was strongest in the cereals and meals sectors, with prices in the milks sector under pressure from the difficult economic situation and competitive price discounting, which were only partially offset by the success of premium products.
