Going Premium in Russia is a Short-Term Tactic

Amin AlkhatibAnalyst Insight by Amin Alkhatib

The Russian beer market has taken a hit in the past five years as a consequence of the financial crisis in 2008, legislative changes in the beer market since 2011, and economic sanctions in response to the Russian government’s actions in the Ukraine. According to Euromonitor International, over 2008-2013, beer volume sales in Russia declined at a CAGR of 4%, with 2013 showing a 5% drop. The macroeconomic beating taken by the Russian market in recent years and legislative changes have pegged its volume sales performance below that of the rest of Europe. This has resulted in brewers changing emphasis from volume sales expansion to protecting margins.

Analysing the Recent Success of Cien Q10 Beauty Cream

Surprising findings from a study conducted by the Spanish main consumer organization: Lidl´s face cream “Cien Q10” is more effective than other brands up to ten times the price.

After reaching the top position in this quality ranking, Cien Q10 became a complete sell-out in Spain. Even a few months after the publication of this study, Spanish women still struggle to find the product, which vanishes from the shelves after every replacement.

How Nordic BARF-Manufacturers Will Turn Niche Into Mainstream

Stefan AnbroAnalyst Insight by Stefan Anbro - Research Analyst

View Stefan Anbro's profile on LinkedIn

BARF is a niche on the Nordic market.  But holding 5% of total dog food value sales it’s a big one. And it’s growing. This should make BARF manufacturers happy and it does, but more interestingly, growth stimulates the appetite for further growth, and so we see a number of ambitious BARF manufacturers taking concrete steps to expand their target group further. If they succeed they may not turn things upside down. But they will cause some change.

New channels and new products

BARF is an acronym for biologically appropriate raw food. Basically, it’s raw meat, raw bones and raw organs. These products are sold frozen and manufactured by small specialised players, which are building up this market parallel to the mainstream market for processed dog food. So far, the primary target group has been a rather small minority of dog owners, who share a strong belief that raw meat is what healthy dogs are meant to eat by nature. This community of BARF enthusiasts has helped BARF manufacturers to grow their business. But in order to grow further they will need to reach out to the mainstream consumer.

Sportswear Stores in 2015: Battle of the Sexes

Emily PottsAnalyst Insight by Emily Potts - Contributing Analyst

There’s no doubting that the apparel success story of 2014 was sportswear, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing in 2015. As with every pocket of opportunity in apparel, competition has intensified, and the category’s major players are constantly revising their strategies to keep consumers coming back for more. The closing weeks of 2014 saw a fresh focus on gender-specific stores.

In late November, Lululemon opened its first store targeting male consumers, in Manhattan. Meanwhile, Nike opened its first store catering just for women in California a few weeks earlier. Is this the start of a battle of the sexes in sportswear?

Vil IC Groups fortsatte frasalg af brands sætte gang i det danske beklædningsmarked?

I løbet af de seneste to år er IC Group gået fra at have 11 forskellige brands til kun at have 5. Reduktionen er sket som en reaktion på, at det danske bekældningsmarked savner vækst, hvilket har fået selskabet til at fokusere på sine mest profitable aktiviteter. Distributionen af beklædning i Danmark, herunder især dagligvarehandlen, vil også blive påvirket af IC Groups afhænding af brands. Se denne video for at høre den fulde analyse.

Will IC Group's Continued Brand Divestment Spark the Apparel and Footwear Market in Denmark?

Over the last two years, IC Group has gone from operating 11 different brands to just 5. This reduction has been a reaction to the lack of growth in the apparel and footwear industry in Denmark, resulting in a strategic focus on the company's most profitable operating segments. Distribution networks in the country will also be impacted by this divestment, particularly grocery retailers. Watch the video for complete insights.

Halting the Tide of Decline in the UK’s Beer Market

Amin AlkhatibAnalyst Insight by Amin Alkhatib - Alcoholic Drinks Analyst

View Amin Alkhatib's profile on LinkedIn

The UK beer industry is looking for a way out of its gloomy performance in volume sales. According to Euromonitor International, there was a 2% decline in 2013 in total volume sales, and that is reflecting a continuing impact upon the on-trade channel of various dynamics, such as an ageing demography and aggressive price competition from supermarkets. So, the industry keeps trying to increase beer consumption via marketing campaigns that widen drinking occasions at home and outside.

ThatbeerIn the context of all of this, the industry is indicating a need for the repositioning of the role of beer in UK consumers’ shopping baskets and cuisines in order to boost volume sales. This is illustrated by the launch of a £10 million integrated marketing campaign in 2014 to encourage people to drink beer. The campaign is a food-pairing promotion called “There’s a beer for that”, which aims to encourage people to perceive beer differently with regard to the occasion by positioning it in a similar manner to wine.
