Estimating Category Leaders in FMCG Industries

Virgilijus NaruseviciusAnalyst Insight by Virgilijus Narusevicius - Senior Data Scientist

In this article, we have attempted to characterise category leaders across FMCG industries and the typical market shares they achieve. “Category leader” is generally a highly coveted status as it allows price-setting power and a better ability to influence category trends, enables economies of scale and implies a better bargaining power over retailers and suppliers. It also suggests that the company is doing many things right and it is thus rather common to benchmark against the category leaders and study their past strategies. However, category leader shares vary between industries and a successful company in one industry may differ from another.

Ahmad Tea: Opportunities and Challenges Abroad

Hope.LeeAnalyst Insight by Hope Lee - Senior Beverages Analyst

Generally, Ahmad Tea exports its processed tea to its target markets and relies on local companies to pack, market and distribute them with its guidance. In Iran, Ahmad Tea has established itself for many years and ranks second in tea, and its local partner is Maham Qeshm Trading Co. In 2013, Ahmad Tea experienced a tough time in the face of high inflation and devaluation of local currency, resulting in inflated retail prices in local currency terms. Some shop keepers declined to stock Ahmad Tea, and this reduced availability caused a short-term losses of share. On the top of this, smuggling and counterfeit products are an ongoing issue and threat.

Emerging markets tend to present a relatively high risk in terms of political change and unpredictability, compared to developed markets. Ukraine is also an important market for Ahmad Tea, and the current unstable political situation in this country inevitably poses problems. It is understandable that Ahmad Tea has started to explore opportunities in its British home market, as a more stable alternative.

Designs on the Future, Now. What will Shape Laundry Care in 2030 and Beyond?

Ian_BellAnalyst Insight by Ian Bell, Head of Home Care Research

View Ian Bell's profile on LinkedIn

2030 is a fairly arbitrary date to set in the context of gazing into the future. Much can change, but it is still possible to predict, with at least some degree of confidence, what will be shaping the world of laundry care come 2030.

While consideration of a futuristic “Star Trek” outlook for laundry practice, in which machines self-regulate, self-dose and communicate with their load for optimal washing performance, has its merits, this future will likely affect very few of us. In this case, the future is already here right now, just not evenly distributed.

Sustainability is another obvious consideration for the 2030 world, but so much has been written and spoken about the subject that another rehash of the subject is likely to bring up little that is new or insightful.

The Future of Laundry Care
