Key Market Issues
Like fruit powders the category suffers a drawback where unreliable public water supplies means that the concentrate needs to be mixed with bottled or bulk/HOD water. This comes at a cost. But squash/syrups are not only drunk as cheap substitutes to RTD juice drinks, they are also poured over ice (“slushies”), used in milkshakes, hot and alcoholic drinks and employed as a dessert flavoring
Squash/syrups volumes grew across most regions last year. The two exceptions were Australasia and Latin America. The latter has been in decline since 2008 but it was the first time that the Australasian market has dipped for three years. The cause of the drop was a change in the dilution rate by several Australian brands and Private Label. Many consumers were wary and reluctant to adopt the stronger formulation
Some 16-17% of volume is represented by low calorie products almost all of which is to be found in West Europe. This share is not tending to increase over time
Flavor options are extensive and include champagne, date and honey however orange is the top choice with a fairly stable share that has hovered between 27-28% since 2003. Last year it stood at 27%. Lemon is the second ranked single flavor choice (4%). Berries accounted for a further 10% of volume
Three out of every five litres of squash/syrups are sold in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and the share of this plastic continues to steadily rise. In 2004 less than half of global volumes were packed in PET. Glass is second choice but has lost out to the rise of PET and now only holds around a 23% share, down from over 30% in 2004
Around nine out of every litre of squash/syrups is sold through retail outlets, mainly for at-home use, with the share held by on-premise progressively declining for many years. This is despite producer attempts to broaden usage such as a dessert topping in restaurants
