Report description

Product Synopsis
This report provides the results for the Wines market in the 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 Wines 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 Wines 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 with the 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. Fortified Wine, Sparkling Wine, and Still Wine are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been negatively 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

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

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

Key Market Issues
Sparkling wine consumption is significantly higher among women than men, both in terms of overall penetration and consumption frequency.

Consumer frequency analysis reveals that the majority of Sparkling Wine consumption is in the Light and Medium frequency range. Fewer than 12% of consumers in each age group recorded a Heavy consumption frequency, highlighting the traditional use of Sparkling Wine as an occasional celebration drink.

Indulgence is the most important trend across the UK Wines market, highlighting Wines’ position as a luxury product consumers use to relax or mark special occasions.

Key Highlights
Market valuation reveals that Still Wine dominates the UK Wine market by value. Sparkling Wine is the next largest category followed by Fortified Wine.

In the UK Wine market private labels have the highest penetration in the Sparkling Wine category, and the lowest in Still Wines. Wine consumption is strongly linked to luxury and, as such, private label penetration is expected to remain relatively low, particularly in Still Wines where brands are strong.

Retail analysis reveals that the majority of Wine distribution in the UK happens through large retailers. Tesco has the largest share in the Wine retail market by volume.
