Ikea Testing Click-and-Collect Outlets

Ikea is testing new click-and-collect outlets in Spain. These outlets offer a limited range of goods for customers to see and test, the idea being that customers will place orders online and collect their purchase at the outlet. Most sales from the Spanish outlet are actually taking place inside the store instead of online, but many other outlets in different countries have also opened in areas with higher penetration of online sales.

Doing Business in the Halal Market

The Muslim religion is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with Muslim consumers expected to reach 26 percent of the global population by 2030.

Muslim consumers seek products that cater to their religious needs and comply with Islamic requirements: from halal production process to halal labelling and packaging. The lack of permissible offerings has led to a surge in demand, as Muslims grow hungry for trendy products and services adapted to their lifestyle.

250_brazilBusiness-v1.0On the surface, Brazil looks like an attractive market. It is the seventh largest global economy and has a population of 200 million, with high consumer expenditure and high demand for commodities.

New Home and Garden Data: Key Research Highlights

Cruz del BarrioAnalyst Insight by Cruz del Barrio - Head of Home and Garden Research

View Cruz del Barrio's profile on LinkedIn

Euromonitor International is pleased to announce that the 2015 Home and Garden edition is now live and available to access on Passport. The updated research provides latest insights on how the home and garden industry performed during 2014 and identifies key prospects through to 2019.

Key findings from the data:

1. Strong US dollar distorts the global picture

The strength of the US dollar in 2014 had unexpected consequences for the home and garden industry. Many countries, from Canada to Australia and from Brazil to South Africa, delivered positive performances in their local currencies, but failed to show growth when the data were converted into US dollars. Globally, home and garden grew by just 1% in US$ value terms in 2014.

The impact of the forex is expected to continue in 2015 as the US currency is becoming stronger against currencies previously more resilient, such as the euro and the British pound.

Challenges and Opportunities in Targeting the Senior Consumer

250_seniorConsumer-v1.0The senior market is a lucrative market to explore. The population over 60 stood at 912 million in 2014, representing 12.6 percent of the global population. By 2030, this segment will account for 18 percent, reaching 1.5 billion globally. While China is the fastest growing ageing market with over 60s forecast to grow by more than 46 percent between 2014 and 2030, Japan has the oldest population, with a massive 33 percent aged over 60. Japan is a model on the impact of this demographic shift, showing the effects of different methods of governmental intervention and product development opportunities.

Key findings:

  • E-health, home assistance and elderly-friendly services will drive technology developments in the senior market, with health being the most dynamic consumer expenditure category through 2030.

  • Efficacy and natural features remain key features when it comes to marketing beauty products to the over 60s.

  • Demand for luxury goods focusing on heritage and craftsmanship is popular among senior consumers.

  • As senior consumers usually invest in timeless, quality clothing, an older population will have a negative impact on sales volume in the apparel market.

  • Presbyopia represents a key market driver in eyewear.
