LONDON, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The UK Syrups and Spreads Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Syrups & Spreads market in UK from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as retailer choices. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Syrups & Spreads market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Syrups & Spreads market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As consumer confidence increases proportionally to economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. Jams, Jellies & Preserves, Molasses, Savory Spreads, Sweet Spreads, and Syrups are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been comparatively affected. As economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets – making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Unique retailer choice data at the product category level, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

Urban Dwellers consume Molasses at a disproportionate rate when compared with their share of the population. Molasses is a very small market in the UK, which is served by either Private Label or smaller producers. With this not being generally available as a product from a large National or Multinational company it is not easily available, especially in smaller, rural stores.

The Better Off group in the UK represents the largest share of the Syrups & Spreads market, with 44%. This is slightly higher than this group's population, at 43%. This must be considered when marketers are positioning their product; price differentiation may help to increase this market while keeping those consumers with lower incomes.

Private Label products have a significant share of all Syrups & Spreads categories in the UK. In all markets, except Syrups, there is a single brand with a large share and the remainder is fragmented into much smaller brand shares. These smaller shares are vulnerable to Private Label growth so their marketers need to add value to their product and target according to specific trends and influences in order to just maintain their share.

Key Highlights

The largest value share of the Syrups & Spreads market in the UK is Savory Spreads with 45%, which also equates to a 39% volume share. This indicates that Savory Spreads are the most popular form of Syrups & Spreads in the UK.

A significant "attitude-behavior" gap exists between the share of consumers citing that a trend affects their consumption and the actual share of the market value these trends influence. This is because consumers don't always act on these trends – the result is that overall trend influence is limited, but has the potential to grow.

Although the UK market is fragmented in terms of number of retailers operating in the country, the top three retailers account for almost three-quarters of the syrups & spreads market by volume. This indicates medium-to-high bargaining power for these retailers with the product manufacturers. Distribution strategies and supply chain decisions need to be centered on these key insights as the market remains fragmented.
