Asia Pacific is the world’s biggest and one of the most dynamic regions in sweet biscuits, snack bars and fruit snacks
While Asia Pacific is the world’s biggest and one of the fastest-growing markets for sweet biscuits, snack bars and fruit snacks in per capita terms, the region’s consumption significantly lags behind the rest of the world. This is an opportunity for manufacturers, as there is ample room to boost revenues in a fast and cost-effective way.
China is the uncontested leader, but with decreasing importance
Accounting for 35% of the region’s total sales, China is unsurprisingly the biggest market in Asia Pacific. However, over the last couple of years a growing focus on health and nutrition had a negative impact on sales, and sweet biscuits (as well as fruit snacks) started to be seen as unhealthy, which led to a contraction in the Chinese market. India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan, on the other hand, showed a significant uptick in sales.
Sales remain fragmented, with the large presence of local companies
Sweet biscuits, snack bars and fruit snacks in Asia Pacific remains fragmented. Among the top five players, the only non-Asian company is Mondelez. However, even in China, where it leads, Mondelez’s share is barely 8%. Fast-growth markets such as India, Indonesia and Japan remain largely dominated by local players.
Convenience stores is the channel to look out for
Whilst traditional grocery retailers is still the preferred choice across several of the region’s markets, modern grocery retailers set the rules of the game in China, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea. Convenience stores is becoming an increasingly important channel in all these markets, due to the move towards bite-size variants, snack bars and on-the-go formats.
