LONDON, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The US Dairy Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Dairy market in the US 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 Dairy 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 integrated survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Dairy 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 proportionally to 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. The majority of the Dairy products such as Milk, Yoghurt, Butter, and Cheese are considered essential items and, therefore, the recession has affected their consumption patterns only marginally in relation to other Dairy products such as Puddings/Desserts.

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. The 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

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Butter and Spreadable Fats, Cheese, Cream, Milk, Puddings/Desserts, and Yoghurt markets.

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

The volume and value of the Cream market may be under threat from low consumption by younger consumers, with consumption significantly higher in the Pre-Mid-Lifers, Mid-Lifers, and Older Consumers age groups. Suppliers need to increase consumption frequency among younger consumers, or face a considerable contraction in the market in the future.

Heavy frequency consumption of Milk declines from more than 43% of Kids and Babies and Tweens and Early Teens to less than 15% among adults. Parents encourage their children to drink Milk to benefit from its high calcium content, but consumption then falls when consumers reach adulthood as Milk's health benefits aren't as necessary and these products face increasing competition from other beverages such as soft drinks and alcoholic drinks.

Consumption of Puddings/Desserts declines among Early Young Adults, with relatively low consumption continuing among Older Young Adults and Pre-Mid-Lifers. Affluence is a key factor driving this low consumption, with younger adults typically enjoying less disposable income than consumers in older age groups, and therefore consuming fewer luxuries such as Puddings/Desserts.

Key Highlights

Market valuation indicates per capita expenditure on Milk is the highest in the Dairy market, closely followed by Cheese. Cream is the least purchased Dairy item in value terms.

Almost half of the volume of Milk distributed in the US is private label. In contrast, private labels have a penetration of only 18% in Butter and Spreadable Fats and 20% in Puddings/Desserts, indicating that they have struggled to gain market share in value-added Dairy product categories. However, these market shares may grow as private labels become increasingly accepted by US consumers and the country's economy remains relatively weak.

Not only do a large proportion of US consumers, in certain categories at least, highlight that specific consumer trends have an influence on their consumption, this translates into a significant proportion of actual value being directly influenced as well. Consumer are therefore acting on these trends enough to ensure that targeting them, in the right categories, is essential to success.
