Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

Trends

  • Portuguese consumers continued to indulge in chocolate confectionery for fun and enjoyment in 2015. Branded products within the category recorded a good performance, which can be attributed to consumer demand for affordable luxuries and indulgence. Therefore, manufacturers of branded products increasingly used dark chocolate, caramel and nuts as ingredients in their products. Dark chocolate in particular is perceived as a high quality product. Private label players also continued to increase the sophistication of their offer, demonstrating the importance of premiumisation in chocolate confectionery.

Competitive Landscape

  • Ferrero retained its leading position with a 20% value share in chocolate confectionery in 2015. This position can be attributed to the wide and deep range of products offered by the company, as well as the high quality of its products. Its main brands, such as Ferrero Rocher or Kinder, are widely recognised by Portuguese consumers and respectively led boxed assortments and chocolate with toys in 2015. Kinder was also strong in countlines and tablets.

Prospects

  • Portuguese per capita retail volume consumption of chocolate confectionery was one of the lowest in Western Europe at 1.6 kg per capita in 2015. Therefore the category represents a great opportunity for growth. Chocolate confectionery is anticipated to continue to register a good performance over the forecast period. Whilst consumers are likely to continue to demand high-quality products and innovations, manufacturers are expected o invest in new product development and strong marketing activity over the forecast period. They will also focus on creating new opportunities for chocolate consumption in order to increase per capita consumption.

Gum

Trends

  • Lifestyle trends and the maturity of the category hindered sales in 2015. Total volume sales declined by 2% as gum suffered from a lack of innovation and from substitution by other confectionery products, such as medicated sugar confectionery, and changing lifestyles. According to industry experts, Portuguese consumers increasingly preferred to brush their teeth to refresh their breath rather than use gum. As a consequence gum value sales declined marginally in 2015. This stagnation was in line with the performance registered over the review period.

Competitive Landscape

  • With a 65% value share in 2015, Cadbury was the indisputable leader of gum in Portugal. Its success was due to the strong positions of its two main brands, Trident and Chiclets, respectively ranking first and third in the overall gum category. Trident benefited from the launch of new products in 2014.Moreover the brand took advantage of the strong investment capacity of the company in terms of marketing campaigns, such as media advertising, including television.

Prospects

  • It is expected that sales of gum will be driven by a strong performance of sugar-free gum over the forecast period. Consumers are likely to be increasingly influenced by the health and wellness trend and greater concerns about their dental and oral care. In addition, demand for added health benefits and greater functionality are also predicted to drive sales of niches such as functional gum. Finally, demand for more convenient packaging types is also anticipated to impact the category.

Sugar Confectionery

TrendS

  • The increasing awareness of health issues in Portugal led to negative growth in sugar confectionery in 2015. The high levels of calories contained in sugar confectionery is considered one of the main triggers of health problems, such as obesity and diabetes. These factors placed pressure on manufacturers, which developed healthier and sugar-free solutions. Therefore the mix of sugarised and sugar-free products changed, with the latter gaining ground over the former.

Competitive Landscape

  • Lusiteca - Transformação e Embalagem Produtos Alimentares remained the leading company in sugar confectionery with a 20% value share in 2015. This local player has been present in Portugal over a long period. Its well-established Penha brand is part of the collective memory of Portuguese consumers. The multinational, ChupaChups, was in second place with a 13% value share thanks to its indisputable leadership in lollipops.

Prospects

  • Sugar confectionery is expected to witness the continuation of the trend observed over the review period: an increasing number of consumers avoiding sugarised sugar confectionery due to growing health concerns. Therefore demand for sugar-free formulations and products with added health benefits is anticipated to increase. Manufacturers are thus also expected to focus on new product launches within this field in order to meet this demand.
