Japanese baby food market showcases a stagnant growth: Ken Research

Ken research announced its recent production on Baby Food in Japan concentrates on offering the bits of knowledge on the Japanese baby food market which further incorporates the scope of the market, the market share of different segments also the macro economic conditions of Japan and how the baby food market has evolved, furthermore it also examines the prospects of this market and their purchasing patterns or attitudes towards the baby food. This production offers the current and forecast behaviour trends in each category to identify the best opportunities to exploit.
Japan and its birth rate
Economic development generally leads to more access to education and employment for women, but household policies and basic anticipations change at a much slower pace. The outcome of such situation turns out to be, the family-work hassle intensifies and women postpone marriage and childbirth or remain childless. This is what Japan is witnessing lately.
“Catastrophe” is one of the adjectives most usually used to explain Japan’s demographic condition: an aging society full of sexless couples having very less or fewer babies. Fertility is below recovered level, births are being postponed. But the situation is not yet that worse.
Japan has never made it into the “top 10” of nations experiencing the lowest total fertility rates (TFR) which is the average quantity of children a woman bears over her lifetime. And since 2005, when it lowered out at 1.26 births per woman, the TFR has been slowly but steadily growing; although the government is speculating what it hopes is a slight blip a 0.01-point dip for 2015. According to the World Data Bank, in 2013 Japan, with its 1.43 TFR, was doing better than South Korea and Singapore (both 1.19), Hong Kong (1.12) and Germany (1.38).
Despite of the total fertility rate declining, the sales of baby food elevated in 2015
The number of infants has reliably declined in Japan in the course of the most recent 20 years, from 1.2 million in 1990 to less short of what one million in 2015. The rising costs of raising children, especially the expanded costs of education and sustenance, have brought about a developing number of wedded couples choosing to have no child or just a single kid and this is bringing on the quantity of infants to decrease. Despite the fact that sales of baby food are ordinarily impacted by the number of newborn babies rather than economic conditions, current value sales of baby food increased in 2015. An expansion in the number of working mothers lacking the time to prepare less costly baby food elevated sales of prepared baby food in 2015, bringing on an uptick in value sales.
Competitive landscape
Meiji kept up its driving position in child food in Japan in 2015. Meiji is specialized in milk equation, particularly standard milk recipe and follow-on milk equation. The organization's advantage over its rivals is that Meiji's milk equation is the closest to regular mother's milk; Meiji is the main organization that has effectively formulated arachidonic acid, a chemical compound normally contained in mother's milk that encourages development in memory and mindset of infants, in milk recipe. This preferred standpoint, alongside compelling promotional and marketing effort, has helped the organization to build up a solid brand picture among buyers. Besides, Meiji is the creative pioneer in milk equation organizing. The cube-type milk formula it initially propelled in 2007 has for some time been a hit as it satisfies the requirements of occupied mothers by empowering them to make milk all the more rapidly and effectively at home and outside the house.

US novel Banking policies to obscure impact on Mexico payment industry: Ken Research

Elevated vulnerability in the wake of the outcome of the US presidential decision
The deficit was cut down by 1.1% of GDP from 2015 to 2016
Ken research announce its recent publication on " Consumer Payments Country Snapshot: Mexico 2016" which concentrates on offering insightful analysis of consumer payments market in Mexico, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments and latest payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless along with the regulations enforced in the market and how they have evolved. Furthermore, it has explored the online payment market in the UK by payment tool along with its five year future forecast for the development of the market. This report offers an in-depth analysis of the consumer attitudes towards prepaid cards, mobile payment tools, P2P tools and the process of deployment constructed by the companies in Mexico. Learn the latest trends which drive consumer behaviour at the macro level and plan the respective strategies further.
Mexico - Economic forecast
Financial movement has been versatile to sharply bring down oil costs, powerless world trade development and money related policies fixing in the United States. Domestic demand remains the fundamental driver of monetary activity, upheld by late auxiliary changes that have sliced costs to buyers, eminently on power and telecoms services. Development will be kept down in 2017 and 2018, for the most part through venture and buyer confidence, following uncertainties about future US strategy, in spite of the fact that the economy could profit by more grounded import demand from the United States.
Macroeconomic factors are being fixed. Banco de Mexico raised policy rates to counter inflationary weights and keep expansion expectations secured close to the inflation target and all the more as of late because of elevated vulnerability in the wake of the outcome of the US presidential decision. Keeping in mind the end goal to meet the union way and guarantee debt sustainability, the 2017 budget plan incorporates expenditure cuts, with the goal of coming back to an essential surplus.
The government laid down a consolidation path two years back to lessen the budget deficit by 2 percentage points of GDP more than 4 years. However, there is degree for reallocating expenditures and further constraining tax expenditures to rise spending on projects helpful for comprehensive development for Mexican families – such as child care, wellbeing, poverty reduction, and infrastructure.
Financial activity held back by external factors
Even being hit by major external shocks, the Mexican economy has been versatile. The external environment is a task, with the global economy remaining in a low-growth trap and poor expectations degrading trade, investment, and salaries. Headwinds specific to Mexico incorporate reducing oil prices, which had cut down government receipts, cutbacks in power sector investments, and the heavily depreciating Mexican peso following market expectations of US Federal Reserve fixing, and policy uncertainty in the United States.
The government is on right path to meet its Public Sector Borrowing Requirements (PSBR) deficit target. The deficit was cut down by 1.1% of GDP from 2015 to 2016; however this largely reflected a one-off profit remittance from the central bank. The loss of budget revenue following the eradication of global oil prices posed a threat and an opportunity for Mexico, which it conveniently met by implementing a reform to raise taxes by 3% of GDP since 2014, thereby majorly reducing fiscal dependence on oil.
Certain reforms are needed for the country’s economic and financial growth
  • Misallocation of productive resources,
  • stringent local regulations,
  • weak legal institutions,
  • high rates of corruption
  • Insufficient financial inclusion
  • Eradicating extreme poverty,
  • reducing income inequality and informality,
  • Raising female participation, and encouraging more responsible business practices.
The outlook is linked to external developments
The expansion of the Mexican economy is anticipated to be affected by policy uncertainties in the United States. However, the economy will continue to be accepted by a competitive exchange rate, solid credit expansion, and continual improvements in the labour market included by the government’s structural reforms and the low inflation environment.

For those who are not able to breastfeed or who takes a decision of not to, Baby formula is a healthy alternative. Formula offers babies with the nutrients they need to develop and thrive.
Slight evidence that birth rate is rising in China
The single-child policy, although not applying to each and every family, fell China's fertility rate from an anticipated 6 births per woman at the time of the policy implementation, to merely 1 birth per woman in 2015. The recent easing of the single child policy was as an outcome of the country's aging workforce and China's fear that it might lose its competitive edge in the next following decades. According to Asia OneOpens a New W, ,, the number of second children born grew about 6.9% for the first half of 2016 compared to full year 2015. In spite of the fact, that births are elevating, still all the main infant formula manufacturers have reported that demand is majorly slowing, with this specifically pronounced in the mid-priced and premium sectors.

Lion kept on driving in 2015, with a 40% volume share.

Baba’s Business Booming Sector : Ken Research

Yoga guru, Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved Ltd (PAL), which started as a small pharmacy, is now a serious contender in the FMCG race, with its revenue increasing at a CAGR of 65.7% during FY’2010-FY’2015, as per a report by market research fi rm, Ken Research.

“PAL’s competitors have received its entry in good health as they believe that the revival of their ‘Herbal Trend’ could help them reap higher profi ts by increasing sales in this segment. Competing brands have expressed that their products will not compete with PAL as the latter has helped in expanding the market,” says Supriya Goel, Director, Research and Operations, Ken Research.
PAL has expanded to sell the full range of consumer categories, from edible oils, biscuits and noodles to toothpaste, hair and skin care products, groceries and even detergent. The fi rm has 3 manufacturing plants located in Haridwar for production and sale of products, as well as, a network of 1,78,000 retail outlets across the country. With an estimated customer base in the neighbourhood 70 mn people, PAL’s product lines have been devised to appeal to both rural and urban populations.

Having laid a strong foundation in FMCG, PAL is now geared to hoist its fl ag in other natural subsegments.
