The UK Oils and Fats Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

LONDON, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The UK Oils and Fats Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Oils &Fats market in the UK from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as retailer choices. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Oils & Fats market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Oils & Fats market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Health concerns, budget constraints, and opting for different types of products are all issues that affect the marketing landscape in this market, particularly for Oils. Marketers will need to be aware which age groups and which Consumer Trends are driving the market and therefore what marketing strategies are likely to be the best in the future.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets – making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Oils and Solid fats.

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Unique retailer choice data at the product category level, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

Both penetration and the frequency of consumption of Solid Fats in the UK is low, most likely due to both health concerns as well as declining rates of baking and cooking "from scratch". This decline presents a long term challenge to marketers of these products as, without a change in consumer perceptions, overall volume sales will continue to be stifled into the future.

While the share of Heavy frequency consumers of Oils between Women and Men is similar, Women are more likely to be Medium and Light frequency consumers of Oils. As a result, women account for a slightly greater share of total market values than their share of the population would imply.

While a significant share of consumers report that several trends affect their purchases, it appears that the end effect this has on the market is limited. While consumers believe that trends affect them, most of the time they are using these products for their basic functions, as opposed to meeting health needs or to add variety to their cooking.

Key Highlights

Brand analysis reveals that private labels have a presence of 35%-55% by volume in the Oils &Solid Fats market in the UK. Private label penetration is higher in the Oils market than in the Fats market.

Oils alone account for 90% of the overall Oils &Fats market in the UK in value terms. This makes the Oils category the key factor driving growth in this market, and marketers will need to be aware of what the hotspots to target are.

Results indicate that consumers want good value for money and quick and easy to use products when it comes to their Oils & Fats, but they are not always directly affecting their choices. These trends still offer potential, but marketers should be aware that a challenge exists in encouraging consumers to consistently act on these trends and to help them avoid the temptation to "trade down" to lower priced alternatives.
