Sugar-free chewing gum continues to gain more shelf space in supermarkets and hypermarkets, with players in this category targeting different consumer groups and looking to attract sugarised gum consumers, especially from low-income segments, via the offering of discounts in neighbourhood grocery outlets. However, due to higher prices, demand for sugar-free products is mostly limited to high and middle income consumers, who are the main target groups of producers.
Although independent small grocers are expected to continue to lead distribution of chewing gum over the forecast period, the channel will lose further sales share to modern competitors such as supermarkets and hypermarkets. The rising number of modern retail outlets, coupled with consumers’ increasingly hectic lifestyles and desire for a one-stop shop where they can compare prices and choose from a wide variety of brands, is expected to drive the shift in distribution over the forecast period.
Gum is projected to record healthy retail volume and value growth over the forecast period. Sales will be driven by intensifying competition, as well as the modernisation of retailers, with supermarkets and hypermarkets continuing to expand across the country, thus increasing the range of available chewing gum brands and boosting demand.
Sales continue to be led by Confiserie Triki le Moulin, which benefits from its long-standing presence in the country, the affordability of its brands, as well as a large brand portfolio which is available in all chewing gum categories. The company offers a wide variety of brands, including the leading Florida range and Florident, Twin Bubble, Mango, Super Jumbo Billes and Ballon Elephant.
Gum is dominated by standard brands such as Florida and Florident, with the presence of premium brands remaining limited. Gum continues to be considered an impulse purchase, with most available brands competing within the economy segment and being locally produced.
Tunisian consumers are known for being willing to try new products. Therefore, as the economy recovers, players and retailers are expected to be more inclined to introduce new product developments.
