As a media advertising agency specializing in the Chinese market, we're excited to share our insights on the predicted growth trends for China's consumer market in 2023. Based on recent observations by Kantar Worldpanel (a subsidiary of CTR in China), we've identified four key consumer product market trends that will shape the landscape and provide opportunities for brands to thrive in the coming year.
1. Milk Powder Market: A Focus on Niche Opportunities
Despite a declining birth rate, the milk powder market in China is expected to grow steadily in 2023. The new national standard and market consolidation will result in fewer brands and formulas, opening the door for niche players to survive. The sales of specialized medical formulas and premium ingredients like OPO, lactoferrin, and A2-β casein are on the rise. Brands targeting the Chinese market should focus on understanding consumer media habits and leveraging social media and short videos to drive conversions.
2. Household Cleaning Market: Emotional Value and Rich Consumer Needs
Household cleaning products are evolving to meet consumers' diverse needs and offer an enhanced user experience. Products like toilet cleaning mousse and gel cleaners, as well as specialized detergents for washing machines and dishwashers, are experiencing significant growth. Brands should focus on providing not only functional benefits but also emotional value to attract consumers in this competitive market.
3. Household Tissue Paper Market: Multi-Channel Growth and Emerging Products
The household tissue paper market in China is set to grow significantly in 2023, with coreless roll tissue paper and flexible packaging tissue paper leading the charge. Emerging paper products like wet toilet paper, kitchen paper towels, and cotton towels are also gaining traction. Brands should focus on developing their presence across multiple channels, especially in small supermarkets and community group buying platforms, to maximize their growth potential.
4. Foreign Food and Beverages Markets: Reviving Consumption in Home Appliances
The food and beverage market in China is heavily influenced by consumption both inside and outside the home. With consumption outside the home recovering in 2023, brands should seize the opportunity to actively deploy new consumption scenarios that cater to consumers' pursuit of health and pleasure. For instance, electrolyte water has become popular in the sports and fitness scenes, with more brands like Dongpeng entering the market.
In conclusion, as China's consumer market continues to evolve in 2023, brands and advertisers should stay vigilant, monitor market changes, and gain insights into consumer psychology and the need to capitalize on new growth opportunities. By understanding these trends and adapting their strategies accordingly, brands can maximize their success in the Chinese market.
