Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • The weak performance of chocolate confectionery in 2012 is the result of the negative effects of the financial crisis on the purchasing power of large segments of the Romanian population. Compared to year 2011, which proved to be the worst in terms how the urban population and the employees in the public sector perceived the effects of the crisis, year 2012 continues to show the negative impact of the poor economic situation on incomes but the same time has brought some hope to Romanians for the future. As a result, sales are expected to register only a marginal decline in volume and a 3% increase in current value, although the purchasing power remains low.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Kraft Foods Romania continued to retain leadership in 2011 and is set to lead with a 28% value share in 2012, following concentration on chocolate confectionery and giving up on sugar confectionery. Its strong campaigns for Poiana and Milka together with the launch of premium packaging brought those brands to the top positions for Poiana and Milka. The relatively new company Kandia Dulce, successor of Cadbury Romania, could not outpace Kraft in 2011 due to the recent change of ownership but is expected to show an eight and a half percentage point gain in value share to reach in 2012 and will become a closer challenger since acquiring and integrating the operations and brands of Supreme Chocolats.

PROSPECTS

  • The financial crisis with consequences over the forecast period will have a lower impact on premium products as higher-income consumers will maintain their normal consumption habits. The economy brands will also show good prospects as consumers with lower incomes will continue to value them, especially in the condition of a drastic reduction of available incomes. As a consequence, chocolate confectionery should thrive as it becomes increasingly perceived as a more sophisticated and satisfying product for the majority of consumers.

Gum

TRENDS

  • The expected volume decline registered by gum in 2012 will be the result of diminished purchasing power, which has brought about important changes in purchasing habits. Volume sales continue to decrease as consumers become more cautious about how much they spend, with impulse purchases being the first to go. This decrease is also explained by the revival of local independent small grocers, valued especially by lower-income consumers who can better manage their resources there, spending only on essential products and avoiding impulse purchases.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Wrigley Romania has been the indisputable leading manufacturer throughout the review period and is set to hold an 89% value share in 2012. The company dominates sugar-free gum, functional gum and bubble gum through its Orbit, Winterfresh, Airwaves and Hubba Bubba brands. It also has developed an excellent distribution network, which allows the brands to reach the most distanced localities. In sugarised gum, there was an attempt to gain recognition in 2011 through the launch of Big Red, available in larger 10-stick packs.

PROSPECTS

  • Volume growth of gum over the forecast period will be the result of the perceived health benefits and its appeal as an impulse purchase product. On the other hand, the constant value is estimated to decline slightly, a result of the price decrease for the most popular brands but also the penetration of quality but cheaper private label. Gum brands will continue to benefit from heavy advertising support and the marketing of its oral hygiene properties.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • The volume stagnation and the modest current value growth in 2012 are the result of the financial crisis, which has dramatically reduced the purchasing power for large categories of the population. As a consequence, the more premium types of sugar confectionery lost ground because the population switched to cheaper products. On the other hand, the volume stagnation was the consequence of the fact that most consumers of more expensive sugar confectionery are young urban professionals who were mostly making impulce purchases prior to the crisis, but had to reconsider their purchasing habits with the decrease of their purchasing power in the last five years. As a matter of fact, sugar confectionery is often placed near the checkouts, showing a stronger impulse character.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Kandia Dulce led sugar confectionery in 2011 and is set to lead in 2012 with a value share of 26%, the result of the performance of Kandia Dulce’s leading Silvana brand, which enjoys strong recognition, nationwide distribution and affordable prices. Wrigley Romania ranks second with a 21% value share, owing its position to the significant positions retained by its brands Orbit, Solano, Juicy Fruit and Winterfresh as well as its Skittles and Airwaves brands. It has benefited from advertising campaigns is mostly supported by the impulse character of the brands, with excellent exposure near the cashiers. Holding a 17% value share, Perfetti Van Melle ranks third with Chupa Chups, Alpenliebe and Mentos, amongst others.

PROSPECTS

  • The changes in lifestyle and purchasing habits that occurred during the booming period in Romania will continue over the forecast period as the appetite for premium products will remain unaltered for high-income consumers despite the negative effects of the crisis on the majority of the population. In fact, urban professionals are the heaviest consumers of premium brands and their incomes have remained high compared to the majority of the population, although the austerity measures will have some impact on all the income categories. On the other hand, low-income consumers have already switched and will stick to economy brands over the forecast period, counterbalancing the sales of premium brands.
