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

The Indian Ice Cream Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?


Product Synopsis

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

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As India undergoes rapid development and population dynamics start to take effect, being able to capitalize early on the new emerging consumer behaviors will be fundamental to future growth. India's young population, adapting to increasing affluence, will shape the market for years to come. This makes early identification of the consumer groups and trends driving market behavior essential.

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: Artisanal Ice Cream, Impulse Ice Cream, and Take-home Ice Cream.

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.


Key Market Issues

Pre-Mid-Lifers record the lowest consumption of Artisanal Ice Cream, with only 15% of this age group recording Heavy frequency consumption and 10% Medium frequency consumption. In contrast, 20% of Older Young Adults record Heavy frequency consumption and 14% record Medium frequency consumption. Suppliers need to find out why their marketing strategies are successful among 25–34 years olds, but not 35–45 year olds.

Take-home Ice Cream is extremely popular with Mid-Lifers, only 22% of whom are Non-users of these products. However, only 12% of this age group are Heavy frequency consumers, indicating that suppliers should develop strategies to increase how often Mid-Lifers eat Take-home Ice Cream.

The Better Off wealth group accounts for 47% of the market by value. However, segmentation of the Ice Cream market by wealth group shows that no single group consumes Ice Cream 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.


Key Highlights

Private label penetration is negligible in the Ice Cream market in India. One reason for this is the fragmented nature of the Indian retail environment, with private labels typically more successful in mature, concentrated retail markets.

Market valuation reveals that Impulse Ice Cream has a value share of 65% in the overall Ice Cream marketing India, followed by Take-home Ice Cream. Artisanal Ice Cream has the smallest market share.

A significant "attitude-behavior" gap exists between the share of consumers citing that a trend affects their consumption and the actual share of the market value these trends influence. For instance, 43% of consumers' state that the Fun and Enjoyment trends affect their choice of Ice Cream consumption, but this trend affects less than 20% of the value of each Ice Cream market. This is because consumers don't always act on these trends – the result is that overall trend influence is limited, but has the potential to grow.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
