ALBANY, NY, Nov 16, 2016: The 105-page report, titled “ Baby Food in Egypt,” presents a through historical account of the market’s development dating back to 2005 to give the reader a clear overview of the way the market has developed over the years.

The report states that the market for baby food in Egypt, the country with the largest population in the Middle East, is relatively small compared to the state of the market in other Middle Eastern countries. The population of the country has shown a steady rise in the past few years and has increased by 19.7% since 2005. Despite the promising rise in population, sales of baby food products in the country were affected to a notable extent owing to the social and political upheavals during the period between 2011 and 2013. Nonetheless, the consumption of baby food increased appreciably by 33.6% in 2015 as compared to the consumption over the past six years as a whole.

In terms of value, the sales of baby food in the country are nearly 143% higher in 2015 as compared to the sales in 2009. This is a staggering rise and underscore the promising pace at which the market is expanding. However, the high inflation rates in the country mean that this exponential rise equates to a significantly lower 39% growth in the market at constant prices.
