Water Efficiency an Important Trend in Consumer Appliances

Thidathip Tawichai

With Thidathip Tawichai, Consumer Appliances Industry Analyst

Many countries are struggling with managing their water supplies due to various reasons including lack of rainfall, limited space for reservoirs and lack of natural water resources. Many appliance manufacturers are helping to conserve water by introducing water efficient appliances, mainly dishwashers and washing machines. The governments of many countries now rate the water efficiency of appliances along with offering incentives to buy these machines. Water conservation will continue to be an ongoing effort in many countries so these appliances will become even more efficient in the future.

Latest Research: Pet Care 2015 Now Live

Euromonitor International is pleased to announce that the new 2015 Pet Care edition is now live and available to access on Passport. The updated research provides latest insights on how the pet care industry is expected to perform in 2014 and identifies the key prospects through to 2019.

Key Research Highlights

Overall, good growth is expected in 2014, at 3% in global value terms, similar to that experienced in 2013. This good performance is the result of the increasing contribution of emerging markets, particularly Brazil, Mexico and, to some extent, China.

Unsurprisingly, the US remains the largest market and one of the most developed pet care markets. However, trading conditions are becoming increasingly difficult as competition gets fiercer. The recent acquisition of Procter & Gamble’s pet care part of the business by Mars will add a new edge in 2014.

Some of the fastest growing markets in 2014 are expected to be Peru, Saudi Arabia, India and Thailand. These offer great potential to be explored, as more consumers increasingly humanise their pets.

Global Briefing: The Rising Appeal of Small Mammal/Reptile Food

Small Mammal/Reptile Food in Japan

 

Although smaller and less developed than dog and cat food, the small mammal/reptile category has performed relatively well in a difficult economic environment. The rising popularity and appeal of small mammals particularly among couples with small children has contributed to this growth. Moreover, the emerging pet humanisation trend is also creating opportunities for value-added products, particularly those emphasising health and wellness or naturalness, in addition to snacks.

Procter & Gamble Selling Pet Food Brands to Mars is a Win for both Companies and Consumers

 

Procter and Gamble selling its pet care brands to Mars, Inc. is a smart move for both companies. Not only has P&G faced share erosion in recent years, but it also recalled several pet food brands in 2013. Mars, on the other hand, already has strong brand identity, a history of integrating new products into its existing product portfolio and has taken their brands into emerging markets, something P&G failed to do. This move is also a win for consumers, who should benefit from added competitiveness in the pet food market.

Freshpet Rapidly Expanding in Mass-Market Retail in Canada

Maryna IvusAnalyst Insight by Maryna Ivus - In-Country Analyst, Canada

View Maryna Ivus's profile on LinkedIn

As the Canadian pet food marketplace faces the prospect of slowing volume growth in the coming years, manufacturers and retailers are continuing to seek opportunities in the premium dog and cat food segment. Premium pet food products are sought after by many Canadian pet owners, especially those with higher disposable incomes, thus enabling this otherwise mature industry to achieve value growth.

Within premium pet food, sales of fresh and frozen products remain relatively low. However, consumer interest in these products, driven by the perception of high-quality fresh ingredients, has been on the rise. Consumers are treating their pets as members of the family, and this trend is driving a preference for more natural products and better ingredients. Many pet owners feel more comfortable with familiar ingredients, ie ingredients which are similar to those they eat themselves.

Traditionally, fresh/frozen products have been sold mainly in specialist pet stores. However, banking on a consumer shift towards mass-market channels in search of high-quality products at a better price, Freshpet began marketing its line of fresh/frozen dog and cat food through leading grocery and mass chains in Canada, including Wal-Mart and Loblaws operated stores and other grocery retailers. The move, while not without its risks to brand equity, is supporting the brand’s expansion and is attracting more consumer attention, with retailers so far reporting good sales.

What are the Implications of Mars’ Acquisition of Procter & Gamble’s Pet Food Brands?

Damian ShoreAnalyst Insight by Damian Shore - Contributing Analyst

View Damian Shore's profile on LinkedIn

Mars’ acquisition of the Iams, Eukanuba and Natura brands (outside Europe) from Procter & Gamble for US$2.9 billion in cash changes the dynamic of the dog and cat food market, particularly in North America. What will Mars get out of this deal, and what are the risks?

Mars will Account for a Quarter of the North American Market

As a result of this deal, Mars’ share of the North American dog and cat food market will jump from 16% to 25% (based on 2012 market share data), compared with Nestlé’s 36% share and the 11% share of both Del Monte and Colgate-Palmolive.

The real prize for Mars is undoubtedly the strong presence of Procter & Gamble’s brands in the North American premium segment, where they accounted for 19% of value sales in 2012. Combined with its existing 12% share, this almost puts Mars on a par with Nestlé (32%), ending its overdependence on economy and mid-priced brands and thus boosting its profitability.

Italia: prima in Europa per le vendite di prodotti per il benessere degli animali da compagnia

Con una spesa complessiva di 343 milioni di dollari nel 2013, gli italiani si classificano primi in Europa per l’acquisto di prodotti per il benessere degli animali da compagnia e seguono solo Stati Uniti e Brasile a livello globale. È quanto emerge dal rapporto Euromonitor “Pet Healthcare e Dietary Supplements” in cui si evidenzia come l’aumento del numero di persone che vivono da sole, cresciuto da 6.6 milioni nel 2007 a 7.4 milioni nel 2012, abbia favorito la crescita della spesa nel settore, nonostante la crisi economica. Anche l’invecchiamento della popolazione favorisce questa tendenza: secondo Euromonitor International, l’Italia sarà il paese più vecchio d’Europa e il secondo più vecchio nel mondo dopo il Giappone entro il 2030.  Il settore dei prodotti per il benessere degli animali ha registrato una crescita del 6% negli ultimi cinque anni e si prevedono vendite per oltre 386 milioni di dollari nel 2018.
