The other retailers that hold significant importance in the Confectionery market are Convenience Stores, Drug stores and Pharmacies, Food and Drink Specialists, Cash and Carries and Warehouse Clubs, and Vending Machines.

The German Confectionery market is skewed towards older consumers (aged above 55 years), who constitute 25% of the market by volume. Additionally, the majority of Confectionery users tend to be financially affluent, and should be encouraged to trade-up.

Chocolate and Sugar Confectionery accounted for 90% of the total number of packs used in the German Confectionery sector in 2012, driving significant demand for Flexible Packaging Film and Bag/Sachet. Box, Blister Pack, and Trays are the other key pack types for Confectionery products in Germany.

Key Highlights

The most important consumption motivation in the German Confectionery market is Indulgence, followed by Personal Spaceand Time, and Fun and 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's 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 health concerns will influence German consumers' behavior, while manufacturers will explore health claims and functional benefits to improve Confectionery sales.
