Population Growth to Drive Staples Consumption, States Euromonitor International in Its New Research Report Available at MarketPublishers.com05 Jan 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – In very saturated markets, some consumers are transitioning from consuming staples, but this creates huge opportunities for producers to target higher spend, smaller audiences that give preference to quality. Somewhere else, demographic development is poised to be the key driver of a hike in the consumption of staples.
Considering that staples are usually consumed on specific occasions, especially meal times, the volume growth has its limits. Hence, the great majority of volume growth through to 2021 is likely to take place in the countries with considerable population increase – specifically within APAC, and the Middle East and Africa.
In those marketplaces where staples are poised to keep on witnessing stagnant volume consumption per capita, a focus on attaining value growth by targeting consumers with high discretionary spend appears to be the most reasonable option. This could be accomplished either by leveraging the higher weakness for ‘perimeter shopping’ or by way of e-commerce meal kits, which tend to appeal to more affluent consumers.
