About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • The chocolate confectionery sector continues to become more competitive in the Philippines because of the growing popularity of imported brands from around Asia. Asian chocolate confectionery companies, such as Lotte Co Ltd and Meiji Co Ltd, have developed chocolate confectionery brands priced lower compared to brands from the US and Europe. For example, Meiji Macadamia and Meiji Almonds products are sold in smaller package sizes at a more affordable unit price. However, their share remains small due to their limited niche market, usually consisting of Japanese and Koreans living in the Philippines. Filipinos perceive European and American brands to be of superior quality.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • In 2011 and 2012, Jack ‘n’ Jill by Universal Robina Corp is expected to continue to lead brand sales in chocolate confectionery, holding 15% value share. The low price positioning, strong brand equity and mass distribution keep the brand on top of the competition. In addition, Jack ‘n’ Jill has been present in the industry for a long time and has gained brand loyalty amongst consumers throughout the generations.

PROSPECTS

  • Chocolate confectionery is expected to have slow value growth over the first two years of the forecast period, but this is likely to pick up in the later years of the forecast period. Constant value CAGR is expected to be less than 1%. The rising competition from cheaper domestic brands is likely to drive sales value lower but drive sales volume higher.

Gum

TRENDS

  • In the Philippines, gum is often consumed to freshen the breath after smoking. The government imposed higher excise taxes on alcohol and tobacco products in the Philippines in 2011. The higher taxes on tobacco not only affected the sales of cigarettes, but also affected the sales of gum. The higher prices of cigarettes forced many consumers to cut down on smoking, which ultimately led to less consumption of gum. The value growth of gum reached its lowest in 2011, declining by 2%.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Wrigley Philippines Inc continues to dominate the gum sector, holding nearly 40% expected value share in 2012. Its early entry into the Philippine market resulted in strong brand equity amongst generations of consumers. Wrigley Philippines Inc’s brands Doublemint and Juicy Fruit have maintained their quality, brand image and low price to keep consumers loyal throughout the years.

PROSPECTS

  • In 2011 and 2012, the Philippine government drafted a new bill proposing to increase tobacco and alcohol taxes significantly. If the bill is passed, it is likely to have a negative impact on the future sales of gum. A significant amount of sales of gum come from smokers who chew gum to freshen their breath after a cigarette. If consumers continue to cut down on smoking, gum sales may also be reduced.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • In 2011, the government imposed higher taxes on tobacco products in the Philippines. This had a slight effect on the sales of sugar confectionery products. Many smokers tend to consume sugar confectionery products such as mints and boiled sweets after a cigarette to freshen their breath and to get rid of the aftertaste of tobacco. The higher taxes on tobacco made some consumers cut down on their daily consumption of cigarettes and therefore also cut down the consumption of sugar confectionery.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Universal Robina Corp leads sugar confectionery with nearly 40% expected share of total value sales in 2012. The strong performance can be attributed to its Jack ‘n’ Jill and Maxx brands. Jack ‘n’ Jill alone is expected to hold about 20% of the sugar confectionery value sales. Maxx is expected to dominate medicated confectionery with over 70% value share. Universal Robina Corp’s strong distribution channels and its ability to maintain low selling prices give it an edge over its competitors.

PROSPECTS

  • In 2012, the government is reviewing a bill that proposes to increase the taxes on tobacco significantly over the forecast period. If the bill is passed, the higher taxes on tobacco are likely to cause the sales of tobacco products to decline. The lower consumption of tobacco is likely to affect sugar confectionery as well because many smokers tend to consume mints, medicated confectionery or boiled confectionery after a cigarette to freshen their breath.
