About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Within the soup category, the trend towards convenience strengthened product performance. While sales of dehydrated soup, which requires a degree of preparation, continued to decrease, instant soup and UHT soup both recorded positive performances. Instant soup recorded 9% value growth in 2012, with consumers valuing the convenience offered by this format as it can be consumed straightaway after hot water is added. The packaging of most instant soup is in a cup or bowl format. UHT soup, which recorded a 27% rise in value sales in 2012, is considered to be simpler to prepare than instant soup, as it only needs to be heated in a microwave. Growth in this category was supported by young consumers’ preference for this convenient soup type, while manufacturers also stimulated interest in the category through the introduction of diverse flavours for UHT soup.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Ottogi Foods Co Ltd is a long-established company which has built up a strong position in soup in South Korea. It led soup with a 37% value share in 2012. The company performed strongly in dehydrated soup and UHT soup in 2012, with value shares of 43% and 50% respectively. Ottogi Foods Co Ltd is aiming to maintain its leading position in these categories and expand its value share in instant soup (where it was present with a 17% share in 2012) by offering diverse flavours and responding effectively to the health and wellness trend.

PROSPECTS

  • Soup is expected to see positive constant value sales at a CAGR of 3% over the forecast period. Instant soup and UHT soup will continue to show healthy performances, benefiting from the convenience trend. Manufacturers are expected to introduce new products, so that competition among players will become more intense. In the same period, UHT is projected to have the fastest growing category. Convenience trends and manufacturers efforts on introducing new variants will help to sustain the healthy growth of UHT soup over forecast period
