About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • The ongoing urbanisation trend in Thai society is fostering the spread of Western food culture, including the consumption of milk, breakfast cereals and cheese as well as chocolate confectionery. The strong economic recovery in the aftermath of the severe floods has also led to a recovery in consumer confidence and spending on indulgence products. The growth of modern retail channels is also reinforcing retail sales of chocolate confectionery, particularly high-end imported brands.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Nestlé (Thailand) Ltd led chocolate confectionery in 2013 with a 23% value share, largely thanks to two key brands - Kit Kat and Milo. In addition, the company has other brands in its portfolio, such as Crunch, Star and Milky Bar. Nestlé’s chocolate lines are considered to be mass products more than competitor brands. With wider distribution and cheaper prices, Nestlé is able to capture a wider consumer group.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period demand for chocolate confectionery in Thailand is expected to approach maturity. However, the ongoing economic recovery together with strengthened political stability will provide an opportunity for imported brands to penetrate the Thai market in response to the greater purchasing power of Thai consumers in major cities.

Gum

TRENDS

  • The perception of chewing gum in Thailand today is more positive than it once was as it is regarded as a breath freshener and purveyor of functional attributes thanks to the efforts of manufacturers to reposition it. In addition, the urbanisation trend in Thailand has triggered stronger consumption of gum among teenagers and adults given the open-minded attitudes of younger generations who tend to be willing to try out new confectionery products.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Kraft Foods (Thailand) Ltd continued to lead gum in 2013 with a 61% value share thanks to a wide product portfolio in sugarised gum, sugar-free and functional gum via brands such as Dentyne, Trident, Clorets and Chiclets. Dentyne, Clorets and Chiclets are present in sugarised gum while Dentyne Xylitol, Trident Splash and Trident Recaldent aim to tap into demand for sugar-free and functional gum. The company continues to use local celebrities to build stronger awareness of Dentyne’s new formulas, focused on providing consumers with fresher breath to build self-confidence.

PROSPECTS

  • Sales of gum in Thailand are projected to see a slowdown due to the mature nature of the category. Manufacturers will thus focus on new product development involving oral health benefits and flavour variety, along with new packaging formats and aggressive marketing, in order to maintain demand.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • In 2013, sugar confectionery in Thailand maintained positive growth momentum thanks to the efforts of brand players to boost demand via new launches and aggressive marketing campaigns. Thai consumers tend to be loyal to brands which offer refreshment properties so manufacturers of other more indulgent sugar confectionery products focused on new flavours and revamped packaging to maintain and boost sales.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Cadbury Adams (Thailand) Ltd continued to lead sugar confectionery in 2013 with a value of share of 22%, thanks primarily to the strong reputation of its Halls brand, which benefits from heavy television advertising. Aside from new revamped packaging in the form of colourful blister packs, Cadbury Adams also surprised its customers by rolling out Halls Soft Secret Senses. This product carries a question mark on its packaging, challenging consumers to guess the flavour in return for a prize.

PROSPECTS

  • Sugar confectionery is predicted a moderate 5% CAGR in constant value terms over 2013-2018, this being an improved performance on the 3% CAGR of the review period. Integrated marketing campaigns will be used as the key driver to encourage the purchase of sugar confectionery, along with new innovative products in vibrant packaging. Brand manufacturers are likely to use digital marketing to complement their above-the-line and below-the line activities due to its cost benefits.
