Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Oils & Fats 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 survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Oils & Fats market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Oils & Fats are already well-established in India. While population growth grows the size of the market, younger consumers consume less than their parents, something which will limit the market size unless innovations can find areas of latent demand. Instead the Oils & Fats industry should seek to find ways of offering greater value to Indian consumers in order to drive value growth.

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. This 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: Oils and Solid Fats.

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.

Key Market Issues

While consumption of Solid Fats slowly increases with age among younger adults, consumption declines among Mid-Lifers and again among Older Consumers. Health is one reason for this, with Oils considered a healthier option than Solid Fats by older adults.

Males have a share of 53% of the Solid Fats market by value, despite accounting for 52% of the population. This highlights the potential to offer more specifically targeted Solid Fats products to men in India.

The Better Off wealth group account for 40% of the Indian Oils & Fats market by value. This suggests strong potential for premium products, though the size of poorer wealth groups – the Hard Pressed group accounts for over a quarter of the market – means that suppliers should develop strategies to serve consumers at different price points.

Key Highlights

Private labels have a low penetration in the market; around 10% by volume in the Solid Fats market and only 3% in the Oils market. However, private labels are expected to grow their market share as the Indian retail environment develops and becomes increasingly concentrated.

Oils account for 83% of the Oils & Fats market by value. However, relatively low consumption by younger consumers means that this market share may decline in the future.

There is a partial attitude-behavior gap in the Oils product category in India. While over 40% of consumers claim to be influenced by the Changing Age Structures and Changing Lifestages trends, these only impact less than 30% of the value of the market. Despite the gap, consumers are acting on these trends enough to ensure that targeting them is essential to success.
