Support Marketing Strategies Using Product Claims Data

For brands to succeed and achieve growth, fast moving consumer goods (fmcg) manufacturers must understand consumers' needs and preferences. Being informed about which product claims are trending in an industry or category is an important piece of the jigsaw, helping companies spot emerging trends and make informed decisions on how to best position their products in a market.

Taking dietary and health claims as an example, companies will look at a number of ways to position their products and want to understand the most important claims to feature on their brands.  For example, should a snack bar be marketed as organic or natural or gluten free?

Companies are also interested to see how penetration of claims differs across different markets.  Whilst the vegetarian claim has a higher penetration  in countries such as the UK and  Australia, the vegan claim is more prevalent than the vegetarian claim in the US. This allows manufacturers of plant-based food to make informed decisions on how to best position their products in core markets.

It is important to consider how a changing marketplace affects claims. For example, COVID-19 helped ensure health and immunity boosting claims on products surged in 2020. Similarly, it strengthened consumers’ ambitions to make positive changes, including through the choice of more sustainable products, brands and manufacturers.
