The Brazilian Dairy Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

LONDON, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The Brazilian Dairy Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Dairy market in Brazil from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as retailer choices in the organized retail market. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Dairy market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Dairy market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Most Dairy categories are already well established in Brazil, and outside of population trends the opportunities for volume growth appear limited, unless innovations can find areas of latent demand. Instead the Dairy industry should seek to find ways of offering greater value to Brazilian consumers in order to drive value growth.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets - making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Butter and Spreadable Fats, Cheese, Cream, Milk, Puddings/Desserts, and Yoghurt.

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Unique organized retailer choice data at the product category level, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

Over 45% of the market's value is accounted for by consumption of products by those aged under just 25 years old. Targeting young families and singles under this age is therefore crucial in maintaining market positions.

Although the picture varies by category, a large share of Brazilians state that trends direct their consumption choices. While they do not always act on these trends, the share of the end markets that these trends affect is very significant and the successful targeting of these trends will be key for future growth.

Key Highlights

Market valuation indicates Cheese has a share of30% in value terms in the overall Dairy market in Brazil. Milk ranks a close second followed by Butter and Spreadable Fats. Cream has lowest value share in the dairy market.

Private label penetration by volume is less than 10% in the dairy market in Brazil. Its penetration is highest for Cheese and the lowest for Butter and Spreadable Fats.

The single most common trend cited by Dairy consumers in Brazil is Changing Age Structures trend, that is that they are seek products which reflect the needs of their age more specifically. The sometimes contradictory trends of Quality and Value for Money also play a significant role in certain categories.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.
