Gender Influences Fragrances Prospects in Emerging Markets

Emi_fragrance-v1.4

Women’s fragrances have traditionally ruled the market ahead of men’s, including in terms of product availability. However, absolute growth forecasts reveal that emerging markets like Mexico and Argentina will generate more value in men’s fragrances over 2013-2018. This indicates an opportunity for industry players to step up men’s variety, where prospects compare well with those of women’s. Middle Eastern markets, essentially Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will lead in premium unisex fragrances.

Gin O’clock: English Gin Breaks Away From its Core Markets

Jeremy_Cunnington0Analyst Insight by Jeremy Cunnington - Senior Alcoholic Drinks Analyst

View Jeremy Cunnington's profile on LinkedIn

Consumption of English Gin, excluding consumption in India which consists entirely of local economy brands, has been dominated by three core markets: the US; Spain; and the UK. In 2013, excluding India, these three markets accounted for 66% of global category volume sales. Additionally, these three markets were the only three to see volumes exceed six million litres in each during 2013. There are, however, signs that this is starting to change, with English Gin gaining popularity in a number of underdeveloped Western European markets.

Within the three core markets, there has been a well-established trend towards the rising popularity of super-premium and premium gins. This has not led to huge growth in the category in these markets, but rather a switch in emphasis away from standard and economy brands, such as Gordon’s and Larios, to more upmarket ones, such as Hendrick’s and Bombay Sapphire.

As first reported in Beverage Digest and later by Business Insider, both PepsiCo and SodaStream have announced a limited test launch of Pepsi branded products on the SodaStream platform.

In its report, Beverage Digest, citing a source, said the Sodastream test using Pepsi products would involve "major SodaStream customers Wal-Mart and Bed Bath & Beyond" in some Florida markets.

The test, which will be a 10-week test selling some Pepsi-branded products, will involve "naturally sweetened" brands not sold at retail: "Pepsi Homemade" and "Sierra Mist Homemade," Beverage Digest said. 

Beverage Digest reports that the actual flavors will be: Pepsi Homemade, Pepsi Homemade Vanilla, Pepsi Homemade Wild Cherry, Sierra Mist Homemade, Sierra Mist Homemade Peach, and Sierra Mist Homemade Cranberry.

Ready for Rio? How brands can reach the two Brazils

BE8B73197D324DDBA30257F791D94536.ashxReblogged from David Fuller's original article in Sports Business Daily

With Brazil’s presidential race heading toward a runoff election later this month, Rio 2016 has taken a back seat in Brazil to issues of politics and economics. There is also a stark contrast between the excitement of Brazil hosting two global sporting events back-to-back and the current economic climate. But no matter the issues of today, one thing is for certain: The Olympic cauldron will be lit on Aug. 5, 2016.

This raises the question: What will be the long-term impact of hosting this year’s FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games — for brands, for citizens and for the Brazilian economy?
With much of the world’s focus fixated on Brazil, GlideSlope sought to better understand the perceptions and influence of the recent World Cup on the upcoming Olympics. More specifically, we wanted to learn what effect Brazil’s hosting of these events has on the Brazilian business community and the extent to which the World Cup is a predictor of how businesses in Brazil may engage with the 2016 Olympic Games.

Petfood 2.0: Pet Humanisation Moves Down the Supply Chain

JaredKoertenAnalyst Insight by Jared Koerten – Senior Research Analyst

View Jared Koerten's profile on LinkedIn

The concept of pet humanisation is not new, and its effects on pet food aisles in the US have been evident to even the most casual observer. Pet food labelled as “natural” or “grain-free” increasingly command larger portions of shelf space, and buzzwords like “superfoods”, “high protein”, or “freshly made” have migrated into pet food. Sales of premium pet food have significantly outpaced other price tiers and average unit prices have risen alongside consumer demand for higher-quality food for their pets. As consumers are increasingly concerned with eating a healthier diet as part of their own wellness regimen, they are looking to mirror these choices in the food they are choosing for their pets.

While the effects of pet humanisation have been most evident among consumers and the retail side of the market, the longevity of this trend is now making serious ripples across all levels of the pet food supply chain. This was a clear theme that emerged at the Petfood 2.0 conference in Chicago on 23-24 September 2014. A series of insightful speakers explored how various parts of the pet food supply chain are facing important new challenges in the face of pet humanisation and a consumer base that is more educated and discerning than ever before.

Luxury Goods in France: Key Trends and Industry Overview

Fflur_RobertsAnalyst Insight by Fflur Roberts - Luxury Goods Analyst

View Fflur Roberts's profile on LinkedIn

Despite France’s venerable position on the global luxury and fashion scene, the French luxury market has not escaped the country’s poor macroeconomic environment.

According to Euromonitor International’s latest research, luxury sales in France reached just under €18 billion in 2014, making it the third biggest market in the world, behind the US and Japan, but, with a regional value share of 21%, France comes out top, ahead of neighbouring Italy and the UK.

Much in line with comparable global figures, designer clothing and footwear accounts for the lion’s share of luxury value sales in France, at 46% in 2014. However, its growth is dwarfed by that of the second largest category, luxury accessories, which grew by 43% in value in the five years to 2014, making it the most dynamic category overall.
