Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Private label brands in modern grocery retailing include products that are developed and marketed by retailers who run various retail formats. Such products are available only in stores owned by a particular retailer. Private label brands play a huge role in the growth of a company. These are the products that are low-cost alternatives to regional, national, and international brands. However, these products are also sold as premium products in certain occasions. Modern grocery retailers have been leveraging private label brands to generate higher revenue since these products give higher margins to the retailers. Further, retailers place nationally advertised products with their private label brands in the same shelf space to attract traffic toward its private label brands. Owing to the recession, customers in the US have been increasingly adopting private label brands, as they are cost-effective as compared to national and international brands. Traditionally, these products were viewed as low quality generic alternatives. However, retailers have significantly improved private label brands, both in terms of brand value as well as quality. This is why customers have started developing loyalty toward these products. Therefore, the increasing number of private label brands is one of the key trends that is expected to impact the Modern Grocery Retailing market in the US during the forecast period.”
