Brazil's Business Environment: Consumption in Economic Slowdown

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.
But Brazilians are spending less, industrial confidence is deteriorating, and inflation is rising, meaning a future of slow growth and economic recovery.

Consumer goods companies operating in Brazil need to adapt their strategy to integrate the global market place. What are the reasons behind this slowdown and how can organisations work it to their advantage?

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.

Listen as MP3

The consumer view that a hangover is a chemical process that can be solved with chemicals helps explain the correlation between sales of alcoholic drinks and aspirin/ibuprofen in the three Latin American countries included in this study. When weight management products are added to the equation, these industry verticals form a chain that reaches far into the festive consumer culture in these markets.

Sports Nutrition Companies Targeting Sports and Energy Drink Consumers

ChrisSchmidtAnalyst Insight by Chris Schmidt - Consumer Health Analyst

View Chris Schmidt's profile on LinkedIn

As sports nutrition continues its push to increase its appeal beyond the bodybuilders and elite athletes that long dominated sales, companies are increasingly eyeing the most mainstream of the sports foods categories: sports and energy drinks. Representing a market opportunity of over US$50 billion in retail value sales in 2014, the category has an obvious appeal. However, with so much of the space occupied by global packaged foods and soft drinks titans, gaining an appreciable share of the sports and energy drinks market may prove to be a herculean task for even sports nutrition’s largest companies.

Consumer Health in 2015 - Trends and Prospects for a Healthier World

Monica feldmanAnalyst Insight by Monica Feldman - Head of Consumer Health Research

View Monica Feldman's profile on LinkedIn

The year 2014 set up the stage for new market dynamics that will influence consumer health in 2015. Our newest preliminary findings for the full year 2014 will be formally published on 19 January 2015. In the meantime, we provide a snapshot preview of how Euromonitor International compares its previous estimates with our most recent research. Overall, the industry grew at a healthy pace of 2.4% in constant terms in 2014 from 2013 (5.6% current/nominal terms) at fixed exchange rates. Surprisingly, this growth is more than one percentage point lower from our previous estimates. The year 2014 brought some growth difficulties in the United States, the largest consumer health market accounting for an estimated 28% of global retail value in 2013. Tweet-ThisA weaker than usual cold/flu and allergy seasons earlier in the year dampened the high prospects of sales. At the same time US consumers shied a bit away from their high consumption of vitamins and dietary supplements in favour of functional/fortified food and beverages, and fresh healthy foods in general. The new global estimates of growth seem a little bit lower due to a slowing down in the economies of Brazil, China and Russia, and also to the fact that the US$ dollar gained strength in the second half of 2014 – Euromonitor International typically reports figures in US$. This is not to say that consumer health is no longer a bright spot since the industry continues to grow at a healthy pace. Rather this is a wake-up call for the industry to work on priorities, focus on relevant therapies, manage competitive threats, and selectively invest in geographies that will lead to the next stage of growth.
