What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As consumer confidence increases proportionally to economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 the organized retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. Coffee, Tea, and Other Hot Drinks are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been negatively affected. As economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.

Key Market Issues
- Consumption frequency analysis reveals that tea is yet to emerge as a popular drink among the majority of Brazilians. This is evident from the low incidence of Heavy-frequency users, less than 20%in the Brazilian tea market. This suggests that marketing planners will be more inclined towards the coffee market in Brazil.
- Consumer segmentation analysis reveals that urban dwellers account for more than 98% of the hot drinks market in value terms in Brazil. As such, Hot Drinks producers should pay special attention to the specific trends and factors affecting Brazil's urban population.
- Organized retailer sales analysis reveals that Brazil's Hot Drinks market is dominated by the country's top three organized retailers, which together account for 49% of the country's total sales in volume terms. Notably, only one-third of the sales are through small stores, making the barrier to entry in the market high.
- Economic prosperity in Brazil has resulted in the upward mobility of a sizeable section of lower middle class population and has also contributed to growth in the levels of coffee consumption. As a result, the share of middle class consumers has increased.
- Brand analysis reveals that private labels have less than 15% penetration in the overall Hot Drinks market in Brazil. This indicates that consumers have a strong preference for branded beverages products.
- Consumer survey results indicate that the increased pace of modern life and the rise of the new middle class in Brazil have contributed to a steep increase in the demand for instant hot drinks, especially Coffee. Moreover, consumers often look to Hot Drinks consumption as a self-reflective expression of their personality.
