LONDON, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The US Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces 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 Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces 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 Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Consumption patterns of Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces have been affected by the weak economy in the US. 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. However, consumption patterns are changing as the US economy recovers, making early identification of the consumer groups and trends driving new market behavior essential.

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: Bouillons and Stocks, Chutneys and Relishes, Condiments, Dips, Dressings, Dry cooking sauces, Herbs, Spices and Seasonings, and Wet Cooking Sauces.

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

Not only do a large proportion of US consumers, in the Condiments, Dressings and Herbs, Spices and Seasonings 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. Consumers are therefore acting on these trends enough to ensure that targeting them, in the right categories, is essential to success.

The Affluent wealth group has the largest share of the Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces market, at 34% of the market by value. However, no wealth group consumes disproportionately to its size, and therefore companies will find value in introducing differentiated products targeting various income groups.

Private label penetration is relatively low in the US Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces market, with the highest penetration being in the Herbs, Spices and Seasonings category, at 29% of the volume of products distributed. Some categories in the Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces market are more vulnerable to private labels than others, such as the Herbs, Spices and Seasonings category which, other than the market leader, has many brands recording low market shares.

Key Highlights

While similar percentages of males and females record Heavy and Medium frequency consumption of Bouillons and Stocks, 47% of females record Light frequency consumption compared to only 35% of males. Marketers should target this large population of female occasional consumers with strategies to increase their consumption frequency.

The Wet Cooking Sauces category is the most valuable in the US Seasonings, Dressings and Sauces market, accounting for 28% of the market by value. Dressings and Condiments are the second and third-largest categories in the market. The market for Chutneys and Relishes is small, with a value market share of only 1%.

Substantially higher percentages of Mid-Lifers and Older Consumers consume Chutneys and Relishes than consumers in younger age groups, although most of this consumption is of a Light consumption frequency. Marketers need to transition some of these Light users into Medium and Heavy frequency consumption in order to increase the value and volume size of the market.
