Unilever- A Deep-dive into Product Launches and Advertising Strategy

Unilever product advertising is mainly through mainstream TV channels. Out of the products advertised so far at least 50% (over 850) of ads have been run on TV, while print media comes second with 496 ads. Unilever also utilizes social media platforms for advertisement. Unilever products are categorized by innovation ratings and tags in our product launch database. The North American region consists of almost 74 products with innovations related to the formulation of the product. Europe and other regions also have more products categorized under formulation-related innovation, followed by the packaging and positioning of the products. Most Unilever products are tagged with “High Vitamins”, “Recyclable”, and “Natural” tags to understand what the product differentiator is from other products available in the market. The majority of products belong to the personal care industry with a total of 5,788 products to date. This report, through the Unilever Example, illustrates how GlobalData Explorer enables you to:

Pernod also unveiled Canadian singer Roy Woods as a Havana Club brand ambassador in the country ahead of its debut campaign in the coming months.

Havana Club’s Canadian presence sits within the remit of beverage distributor and producer, Corby Spirit & Wine, which has handled Pernod’s portfolio in the country for 15 years.

“Cuban Smoky is the first of its kind in the Canadian market, the intense brother of Havana Club 7, and it is shaking up the rum shelves in the liquor store,” said senior brand manager at Corby Aurelie Goffinet.

Earlier this month, Pernod added a Watermelon expression to its Absolut vodka brand’s flavoured stable in the country.

The aged rum category has seen slow, but steady, growth in Canada in recent years, according to GlobalData figures. Between 2015 and 2019, aged rum increased its volumes in the country at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2%. Furthermore, the category is expected to have experienced a minimal year-on-year volumes slide of 5.9% in 2020. Looking ahead, GlobalData predicts volumes will continue to rise at a slightly diminished CAGR of 1.6% until 2024.
