Brand Footprint Indonesia 2021

Most Chosen FMCG Brands by Indonesia Consumers

  • The big themes that appear among FMCG brands are health, hygiene, and accessibility.
  • The food sector dominates the top brands list and the fastest growing brands list in 2020.
  • The extra-protection trend in terms of health and hygiene was an important focus among brands in personal care and home care sector.

Brand Footprint is the annual study from Kantar that measures the brand choice made by the Indonesian consumer. Brand Footprint covers five FMCG sectors, including food, beverage, dairy, home care, and personal care. Brand Footprint’s rank this year represents 97% of Indonesia’s 68 million households both in urban and rural area.

Brands are ranked based on Consumer Reach Point (CRP). CRP is a matrix that combines the number of households buying any particular brand (penetration) and number of times the brand is being purchased (consumer choice). In order to increase your CRP amidst this uncertain time, your brand needs to be adaptive to your consumers from multiple aspects: preference in the use and benefit of a product, availability across relevant channels, the right price point and the pack size, expansion to other categories, and other factors that can influence the consumers’ decision to purchase your brand.
