About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • In 2013, Plucky (a company from Grupo Bimbo SAB de CV), in a long-awaited move, entered the alfajores category with what the company considers a premium product. Its “alfa mania” alfajor, larger than the average for the category, with more dulce de leche than its competitors and claiming to be using true chocolate and not a similar product, targets consumers aged 17 to 35 years old instead of children like most of its competitors do.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • In 2012 Sebamar led chocolate confectionery value sales and is expected to retain the lead with a 21% value share in 2013. This company, with Brazilian-produced Garoto brand products continues maintaining a strong presence in countlines, standard boxed assortments and chocolate tablets (mainly plain milk and filled varieties) and has benefited from the relative slowdown in alfajores sales which caused the fall of Durulte from first to third place since 2009. Van Dam (Arcor) with a presence in all segments has moved into second place, and is set to see a 15% value share in 2013.

PROSPECTS

  • Constant value sales of chocolate confectionery are expected to post a better than 1% CAGR over the forecast period, one percentage point less than the CAGR of the 2008-2013 review period. Already with high per capita consumption, future volume growth is foreseen to be very slow and the future evolution of unit prices will not be fast enough to improve past performance.

Gum

TRENDS

  • Despite the launching of new products from Trondial and Lidergood during 2011 and 2012, volume sales of bubble gum continue declining in 2013. Companies have tried to reverse the trend by keeping prices unchanged or with very small increases in current terms but so far have had no success, as young consumers are switching to other types of confectionery or dropping this type of gum altogether.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • CAS Uruguay continues to dominate gum value sales with an expected 74% retail value share in 2013. This company from the Mondelez International group maintained a similar market share with minor variations over the entire review period. CAS Uruguay leads sales in all three segments, with Bubbaloo in bubble gum, Beldent in sugar-free and Chicle Adams in sugarised gum. Van Dam remains in second place with sales of Top Line and Arcor gum, and is expected to net a 19% value share again in 2013.

PROSPECTS

  • Only sugar-free gum posted positive volume growth rates over the last three years of the review period whilst bubble gum and especially sugarised gum have seen significant declines. It is foreseen that the three companies, CAS Uruguay, Van Dam and Durulte will continue feeding the trend of consuming sugar-free gum in the future, with new options in flavours and functional gum.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • Uruguayan consumers are slowly accepting and adopting sugar-free products in many packaged foods categories and sugar confectionery is no exception. Though comparatively smaller than the respective sugarised categories, the sugar-free ones regardless of unfavourable price differentials are posting the better volume growth rates.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • With a market share of 29% of retail value sales and a very wide variety of Arcor brand sugar confectionery, Van Dam led this category in 2012 and is set to retain the lead with the same value share in 2013. This lead is more than 20 percentage points above second ranked Sebamar. Sugar confectionery shows a large number of players with small market shares that in most instances are difficult to determine (others are set to see a combined value share of 28% in 2013).

PROSPECTS

  • The current trend of consuming sugar-free confectionery is foreseen to remain strong during the forecast period. Companies are expected to take advantage of this trend increasing their sugar-free portfolios whilst at the same time pushing unit prices growth at a faster pace than in the respective sugarised categories, thus resulting in better CAGRs, both in volume and value.
