The physical entertainment market declined by 19% during the 12 weeks to 30 June 2019 as retailers felt the effects of falling shopper numbers and a lack of big-name release in the music, film and gaming sections. With Amazon Prime Day sales still to be accounted for and new consoles due later this year, the market continues to depend on gift-hunting shoppers and benefited from the £24 million worth of sales generated by Father’s Day this period. Claire McClelland, consumer specialist at Kantar, said: “A new DVD, CD or game remains a fail-safe present for those dads who have everything. Physical video did particularly well from the Father’s Day this year – children picking up a favourite boxset or film for their fathers totalled £8.5 millio.

In 2018, 51% of Spaniards purchased take-away food, according to Kantar’s latest out-of-home consumption panel data. For the first time this study analysed all the out-of-home (OOH) food and beverage consumption occasions in Spain. It reveals that, including those purchased for OOH consumption, the Spanish population spent a total of 100,000 million euros last year on food and drink and made 9,000 purchases. Edurne Uranga, Consumer Director of Worldpanel Division at Kantar and responsible for the study, stated: “Brands and chains are facing a new playing field, with an increasingly complex consumer who spends less, and does so in a less structured manner: at work, on the street, on public transport, etc., and where the traditional lines bet.

Stronger growth in Q2 is thanks partly to the 18-day online discount period dubbed ‘’ as well as higher inflation, especially on food. According to the latest official statistics, China’s GDP grew by 6.2% in the second quarter of 2019, the slowest pace since the 1990s, spurring the government to stimulate the economy by encouraging more domestic consumption.

In a recent analysis of consumer behaviour in France, Kantar has identified that in 2019 health and environment are among the top five areas that concern French people who have a growing interest in organic, traceable products. However, there is still a strong concern about the family budget, so it is a question of striking a balance between better quality and an acceptable price.

Festival season is giving music fans the opportunity to dig out their bum-bags, glitter and welly boots but also allowing them a rare chance to get up close to their favourite artists. They’ll undoubtedly feel connected to these world-famous acts as they sing along in front of them – but how many will go on to purchase their idols’ work once the summer festival season comes to an end? Building a close relationship between artist and fan away from the stage might be key. Purchases of music directly from the artist’s website, rather than on the high street or another online store, are up by nearly 30% in the past year . Superfans are driving this trend: 35-55-year-olds buying albums and singles for themselves account for 56% of sales. This gr.

After several years of hyper-consumption in France, a new era has dawned with some major challenges for FMCG players. In general people aren’t feeling that the economic situation is improving, and their purchase confidence is at an all-time low (-4 pts vs 2017, -9 pts vs 2015). The number of protests is increasing and this is likely to impact growth in a critical period. Other factors which are impacting growth include:. A drop in the birth rate. Decrease in purchase frequency: -0.5% on FMCG as a whole and -1.3% on fresh foods. Traditional drivers such as innovation aren’t proving as effective. Promotion is no longer a driver for growth and the new French regulations (EGA) discourage volume deals even further. Some of the specific trends which a.

The beverage market has evolved rapidly over the last three decades specially in the US, and has never moved as quickly as it does today. With a plethora of new brands available and with them, new categories emerge and existing category lines blur. This has been driven by consumers, demanding more and more from every occasion. We’ve moved beyond physical functionality benefits like taste, thirst and fluid replenishment, to a more sophisticated level of needs. Behind every beverage consumption choice there are specific benefits that consumers are seeking to meet their needs in the moment. The key to success in this ever crowding market is for manufacturers to make sure they are asking themselves three important questions:. Who is my true comp.

The latest grocery market share figures, published today by Kantar, show supermarket sales grew by 1.4% year on year during the 12 weeks to 16 June 2019. This marks a new milestone for the sector, which is celebrating a three-year trajectory of continuous growth dating back to July 2016. Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, comments: “The modest level of current growth is thanks in no small part to the wet start to the summer, with last year’s heatwave and the run up to the men’s FIFA World Cup making 2018 a difficult year to top. These challenges are reflected in typical summer categories: in the past four weeks sales of ice cream were £15 million lower than this time last year, while beer is down £17 million and.

The launch of Avengers Endgame earlier this year set the cinematic world alight. It was a box-office hit around the world, setting sales records in many countries. Unlike the previous holder of these records, Avatar which was a standalone film, Avengers Endgame is the culmination of years of box office super heroes. Although watching every single movie in the Marvel franchise was not a pre-requisite to enjoying Endgame, there are many loyal fans. Our analysis indicates that over half of Endgame’s cinema goers in the first 10 days of release had either seen Avengers: Infinity War in the cinema last year or when it was available on home entertainment. This is a significant overlap and indicates the level of investment many Marvel fans have pu.

4K TV (UHD) is now the standard TV resolution offer for large screen TVs. However, no sooner have consumers begun to adopt this technology, when suddenly all the noise and marketing is about 8K TV. But are consumers ready for it? Is 8K TV selling? Latest tracking from Kantar’s Worldpanel ComTech shows that 8K currently only accounts 0.4% of TV’s owned in EU5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK) which is not surprising given the availability and the price. Piers Moore, Global Insight Director at Worldpanel division, Kantar said: “We forecast 8K ownership to no more than 1% by the end of the year. However, strategically 8K is not about driving volume – it is to drive value and excitement in the category, with the hope of creating a halo.

The performance of the food and beverages sector in China has been very slow in recent times which may be attributed to factors including market saturation, economic uncertainty and social challenges due to slowing population growth. There are two areas though that are out performing the rest of the market. E-commerce is a major channel driving growth in the sector. The average growth rate of food and beverages through all channels is 3%, however the growth rate in e-commerce hit reached nearly 30% in 2018. The value contributed by e-commerce rose from 48% in 2017 to 73% in 2018. Jason Yu, Managing Director, Greater China, Kantar Worldpanel , suggested that e-commerce should be a priority for any food and beverages enterprise and is not lim.
