Environmentally Friendly Home Care Packaging is the new Trend in the UAE

EURO_NT_Sav.Sharma_LThumbWith Sav Sharma, Regional Consultant

Home care companies in the United Arab Emirates are seeking new ways to position products as environmentally friendly and sustainable. Consequentially, positioning products as environmentally friendly can also mean reducing pack sizes and packaging costs. Unilever led the way for this trend releasing liquid laundry detergent concentrate in smaller pack sizes in the Middle East, and in the next several years concentrated liquids are expected to perform well across all of home care.

The Risks and Rewards of “Pepsi Made with Real Sugar”

6a01310f54565d970c01a73da7701b970d-800wi 6a01310f54565d970c01a73d9c6f2f970d-800wiWith Howard Telford - Beverages Analyst and Jonas Feliciano, Beverages Analyst

Pepsi recently announced the launch of “Pepsi Made With Real Sugar” for summer 2014. The launch is indicative of Pepsi’s scattered strategy as of late. In a short period of time, Pepsi has changed their logo, bottle shape, sweetener offerings and product sizes. Given consumer reaction to high fructose corn syrup, Pepsi hopes that their latest offering will be seen as a healthier option in what has become an indulgent beverage category. Carbonates have been declining in sales as in the US and other developed markets, and Pepsi’s hope is that with different products, sizes and flavours, current Pepsi drinkers will have alternative products to drink without leaving the carbonates category altogether.

Overall, sportswear sales in Brazil are expected to grow by a massive 67 percent over the next five years.

El consumidor español se interesa por el bricolaje

EURO_NT_Cruz.DelBarrio_LThumbWith Cruz del Barrio, Head of Home and Garden Research

 La crisis ha cambiado el panorama del bricolaje en España. En el pasado, la gente contrataba "manitas", albañiles y pintores para las obras en casa. Desde que comenzó la crisis, los consumidores españoles se han vuelto especialmente sensibles a los precios y una especie de fiebre del "hágalo usted mismo" recorre el país. A pesar de estos factores, el mercado del bricolaje sigue sin registrar un crecimiento positivo, aunque la caída en 2013 fue ligeramente menor que la de 2012.

EURO_NT_Cruz.DelBarrio_LThumbWith Cruz del Barrio, Head of Home and Garden Research

The economic crisis has changed the landscape of the home and garden market in Spain. In the past, consumers would hire handymen, decorators and builders for their home improvement needs.

Income Inequality: A Rampant, Global Problem

An Hodgson with An Hodgson, Income and Expenditure Manager

Income inequality is one of the greatest risks to the global economy today, and with austerity measures, tax policies and widespread corruption all leading to greater inequality, the problem is widespread. Not only can income inequality undermine business environments, but it can also lead to political instability. Euromonitor forecasts that into 2030, income inequality will widen in 70 out of 85 countries, highlighting the fact that narrowing income inequality is no easy task.

As the fiscal year closes on 2013, several surprises have occurred in the packaged food industry. Danone, for example, took a huge hit in the third quarter of 2013 due to product recalls, and Mondelez’s 2013 results were less than 1 percent growth in terms of net revenue due to the lackluster sales of the Oreo brand in key markets. These hard hit brands can look forward to 2014, as global events such as the World Cup can help packaged food bands, especially in the snack sector, regain lost revenue.

Fast-Processing to Support Spectacles Market in Singapore and Asia-Pacific

Euroasia_peiying.loh_LThumbWith Pei Ying Loh, Research Analyst

Contact lenses are growing faster than spectacles in Singapore as consumers view contacts as more stylish and convenient than spectacles. Consumers in Singapore are fashion conscious, and manufacturers can regain sales by marketing spectacles as a fashion accessory. The company Owndays has already started catering to this trend using a ‘fast-processing’ method allowing consumers to walk out the door with stylish frames and prescription-based lenses in hand. Euromonitor expects the fast-processing trend to expand to other countries in the Asia-Pacific region as consumers search for convenient, fashion-sensible spectacles.

Government Clampdown on Extravagance Leads to Underperforming Luxury Categories in China

Fflur_RobertsWith Fflur Roberts, Global Head of Luxury Goods Research

 The government clampdown on extravagance in China is impacting the luxury market, with luxury accessories, wines and men’s timepieces taking the brunt of the law’s impact. The clampdown is aimed at officials who spend government money lavishly as the new ruling party takes steps to reshape its image. Since most government officials are male, men’s luxury categories are underperforming. However, women’s luxury categories such as beauty and personal care and women’s handbags are still performing well.
