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.

Salt and Children’s Health – A Menace in the Making

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

The message that children eat far too much salt and that it primes them for serious health conditions in the future is a media frenzy waiting to happen. Research shows that the problem is widespread, and that packaged food is the prime culprit. Better-for-you reduced salt foods, although not all that popular with adult consumers, stand an excellent chance of being embraced by parents who want to keep their youngsters’ exposure to the essential but also potentially harmful nutrient of sodium in check.   

Processed and restaurant food over-salted

Rarely is the topic of children’s habitual excess salt consumption given much attention by the media, while sugar and its presumed impacts on childhood obesity and hyperactivity are never out of the headlines. Cutting down on salt is seen as a preoccupation of the middle aged. The fact that children also suffer from high blood pressure, which is exacerbated by high sodium intake and predisposes them to cardiovascular disease and strokes in later life, has not yet sunk into public health consciousness. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), one in nine American children have high blood pressure, and for those aged eight to 17, the figure rises to one in six.

Morinaga’s Flagship Dars Store, in the Footsteps of Nestlé’s KitKat

Raphael_MoreauAnalyst Insight by Raphael Moreau - Food Analyst

View Raphael Moreau's profile on LinkedIn

The chocolate brand Dars’ pop-up store on the prestigious Omotesando Avenue, where brands such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton battle for the attention of shoppers and tourists, closed its doors on 15 March after a three-month tenure. This initiative represented part of a wider strategy from Morinaga to build a more premium and exclusive image for Dars, positioning it closer to Nestlé’s KitKat, with this company accelerating expansion of its KitKat Chocolatory store-in-store network.

We visited the Dars store during its last week of opening, days before White Day. Celebrated on 14 March a month after Valentine’s Day, White Day traditionally gives men the opportunity to offer presents to women from whom they received a gift a month earlier, with the occasion likely to have boosted footfall at the Dars outlet.
