About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • Chocolate is growing in popularity among the adult population in South Korea due to its perceived positive health benefits. Recent media coverage of global research has focused on the benefits of chocolate in helping to prevent heart disease, high blood pressure and depression. The key component, polyphenol, is more prevalent in dark chocolate, hence the spotlight on dark chocolate in the media. Products with a high cocoa content are more popular due to their health benefits and stronger flavour.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Lotte Confectionery Co Ltd maintained its leading position in 2014 with a 35% value share of sales. This can be attributed to the fact that Lotte owns several brands which are well-established in the category, including Ghana and Dream Cacao.

PROSPECTS

  • Although the South Korean chocolate confectionery category is relatively small when compared with other advanced markets, consumption is expected to continue to increase. The category is expected to register a value CAGR of 2% at constant 2014 prices over the forecast period. Growth will mainly derive from increased awareness of the health benefits of chocolate as well as a wider range of high-quality chocolate from domestic and international brands.

Gum

TRENDS

  • The decline in gum sales in South Korea can be attributed to changing consumer preferences. Gum is usually consumed as an after-meal refresher or to combat tiredness. However, today’s consumers have a wide array of choices when it comes to such functions, with coffee and energy drinks having partially replaced the previous purpose of chewing gum. Moreover, a recent boom in various dessert foods, including ice cream, has also been seen as one of the reasons behind reduced demand for gum.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Lotte Confectionery Co Ltd continued to lead gum in 2014 with its Xylitol power brand and other well-established brands. Lotte Confectionery has been a pioneer in gum since its inception in 1967 as it started out with gum products. Xylitol was also introduced by the company in 2000. Lotte Confectionery is also a globally strong player in gum as it exports its products to more than 70 countries.

PROSPECTS

  • The outlook for the overall gum category is not bright. Over the forecast period gum in South Korea is predicted to see a value CAGR decline of 3% at constant 2014 prices, with an even stronger decline projected for sugarised gum.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • Sugar confectionery in South Korea remained stagnant for most of the review period. Concerns about sugar consumption and the declining child population are seen as major hurdles to category growth. Amid the falling demand for sugar confectionery, consumer interest is moving towards pastilles, gums, jellies and chews. With an increased variety of imported brands in the marketplace, consumers are trying out different types of jellies and chews.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Crown Confectionery Co Ltd continued to lead the category in 2014 with a value share of 20%, followed by rival players Lotte and Haitai Confectionery with value shares of 15% and 11%, respectively. Crown Confectionery is particularly strong in mints, jellies and chews and caramels thanks to long-established brands such as Bidan Bakha, My Chew and Crown Peanuts Caramel, which have been appreciated by consumers since their launch.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period sugar confectionery is predicted to see a value CAGR decline of 2% at constant 2014 prices. The ongoing health and wellness trend in South Korea and the falling child population will both remain threats to the category. At the same time, a lack of innovation and rising number of imported products will put additional pressure on domestic manufacturers.
