Key Market Issues

Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury and Morrisons account for 75.5% of the UK's Food market, providing a concentrated retail landscape in which Confectionery marketers must operate. Hypermarket & Supermarkets have the largest value share of Confectionery distribution in the UK, followed by Convenience stores and Food & Drink specialists.

Convenience plays a major role in Confectionery sales, owing to the impulse nature of the category. Convenience Stores and Food & Drink Specialists are the second and third most important retail formats for confectionery in value terms.

The UK Confectionery market is skewed towards older consumers: aged 55 and over who constitute over one fourth of the market by volume. Older consumers typically consume confectionery less frequently than younger consumers, but the sheer population of close to 18 million consumers aged 55 and over is driving the market.

Confectionery is a universally-consumed product but slightly skewed towards female consumption in UK. Older consumers aged 55 and over constitute one fourth of the consumption for both men and women. While the better off wealth group account for half of male Confectionery consumption, consumption among women is more evenly spread among wealth groups.

Key Highlights

The most important consumption motivation in the UK Confectionery market is Indulgence, followed by Personal Space & Time and Fun & Enjoyment. In addition to these motivators, value for money products are also preferred by consumers as retailers' private label strategies gain success, not only with "me-too" products but also in premium ranges.

Private Label Confectionery strategy is moving on from a "me-too" product strategy and exploring the premium space with new products, which is driving higher growth rates compared to brands.

Increasing ethical and health concerns will influence UK consumers' behavior, while manufacturers will explore health claims and functional benefits to improve Confectionery sales.

Confectionery is expected to explore functional benefits like weight and cholesterol management, aid injury recovery and its ability slow down the aging process. For instance Barry Callebaut has an EFSA-approved claim for its ACTICOA brand that is rich is flavanols, which contribute to normal blood flow.
