LONDON, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The UK Confectionery Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?


Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Confectionery market in 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 Confectionery 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 Confectionery market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The relatively weak UK economy means it is essential to understand what pockets of growth might exist and whether they represent value or volume opportunities. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. Chocolate, Gum, and Sugar Confectionary are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been comparatively affected.


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: The Chocolate, Gum, and Sugar Confectionery markets.

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

The Better-off wealth group accounts for 46% of the market by value. However, segmentation of the Confectionery market by wealth group shows that no single group consumes Confectionery disproportionately to their share of the country's population. As such, companies should introduce differentiated products targeting various income groups so that every income group is effectively targeted.

Indulgence is the most important trend in the Confectionery market in the UK, closely followed by Personal Space and Time. Not only do a large proportion of UK consumers, particularly in the Chocolate product category, highlight that these consumer trends have an influence on their consumption; this translates into a significant proportion of actual value being directly influenced as well.

Consumption segmentation analysis of the Confectionery market by the amount of time people have to spare reveals that Time Rich people account for 35% of the market by value, a larger value share of the Confectionery market than people who are Time Pressed or Time Poor. This highlights the importance of the youngest consumers, who have plenty of free time as a result of short school days and long holidays.

Key Highlights

Heavy consumption of Sugar Confectionery is highest in the youngest and oldest age groups, with consumption low among young and pre-middle-aged adults. While over 15% of Kids & Babies, Tweens & Early Teens, Mid-Lifers, and Older Consumers eat Sugar Confectionery at a Heavy frequency, this figure is below 8% for Early Young Adults, Older Young Adults, and Pre-Mid-Lifers. Market size and volume will decline substantially in future years unless these consumers drastically increase their consumption.

Distribution of Confectionery in the UK is in line with the market shares of the largest retailers, suggesting that the majority of Confectionery is purchased as part of general grocery shops. The four largest retailers account for 74% of the volume of Confectionery products distributed.

Private label penetration, while low compared to other CPG categories, is fairly high in relation to the Confectionery markets of other countries, such as the US and Germany. For instance, 15% of the volume of Sugar Confectionery distributed in 2011 was private label. The UK has a highly developed private label market, suggesting that 15% penetration in Sugar Confectionery should be a target for retailers in other countries.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').
