Asia though is diverse and fragmented with different cultures and consumer behaviors, the growth levers are brought together in a few common themes centred around the consumers’ fast-changing needs. To help brands look into the recipe for brand growth, we examine real case studies with their successful stories as well as conduct executive interviews with their leaders to see how these brands found growth.

Marcy Kou, CEO Worldpanel Division Asia, Kantar, said: “Consumers are becoming more discerning, informed and well-traveled. As a result, they are exposed to more options, ideas, products, and perspectives. All this influences, shapes and changes their perception and demands to where making a purchase is not just about a product, but what else the brand offers, including a complete shopping experience for them as consumers.”

NOTES TO EDITORS

Brand Footprint: the study
Kantar’s annual Brand Footprint study is based on research from 72% of the global population; a total of one billion households in 49 countries across five continents—covering 85% of the global GDP. As part of the study, Worldpanel tracks more than 21,400 brands across beverages, food, dairy, health and beauty and homecare, in the 12 months to November 2018.

Kantar’s Top ranking of the most chosen FMCG brands in each local market reveals which brands are achieving success, providing insights to help FMCG brands set targets more accurately and improve their business growth. It is set apart from other brand rankings by providing information on real consumer behaviour rather than attitude. Consumer Reach Points (CRPs) form the basis of the ranking. An innovative metric that measures how many households around the world are buying a brand (penetration) and how often (consumer choice), it provides a true representation of shopper choice.

To access the full global, regional, country and sector rankings and a complete index of the brands, please visit www.kantarworldpanel.com/brandfootprint.

The Brand Footprint publication is a Kantar initiative, and the ranking is created in collaboration with GfK in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa and Sweden, with IRI in the US, with Intage in Japan and with CTR in China.

Penetration: % of households buying the brand at least once

Consumer Reach Points (CRP) are Kantar’s measure to rank the most successful brands by the number of times they are chosen by consumers throughout the year.
