Because of changes in shopping habits, with hypermarkets and supermarkets playing a key role since the COVID-19 pandemic, family pack sizes are expected to see increasing sales over the forecast period. In addition, against a backdrop of above-average inflation rates, promotions and discounts in modern grocery retailers will be attractive for price-sensitive consumers.
E-commerce is expected to continue seeing robust growth over the forecast period, boosted by hypermarket and supermarket players like Tienda Inglesa, Disco and Ta-Ta, as well as leading companies like Sebamar (Nestlé), which developed a website to sell Nestlé brands directly to consumers at the end of 2021. Over the forecast period other companies such as Van Dam (Arcor) are likely to invest in similar websites to sell their products directly to consumers in order to compete with Sebamar.
Although the new food labelling laws came into effect in 2021, the impact on chocolate confectionery sales has been very limited, which is expected to continue to be the case over the forecast period. Leading brands like Arcor, Cadbury or Garoto that now have black octagons on their packaging highlighting “excess sugar”, “excess fat” or “excess of saturated fat” have seen only a minimal impact on demand.
