Digital-Shelf-Insights-Indian-Brands

Here, we have analyzed Search, Availability, and Promotions for Biscuits, Chocolates, and Malt Drinks in different online apps like Dmart, Swiggy, BigBasket, Blinkit, etc.

Today, brands are tracking to ensure they get peak keyword rankings, optimum availability, and good discounts, and to do this, Brands need Digital Shelf Analytics.

The FMCG Market Growth

FMCG has been overgrown in the past few years because of digitalization and shifting consumer habits. Factors like government impetus, inflationary pressures, and consumption recovery specify a double growth of FMCG brands. As per NielsenIQ FMCG Snapshot Q2 2022, the development of the FMCG industry is 10.9% in the quarter of June 2022 end, compared to 6% growth in the last quarter. In the second half of 2022, customers will spend more during this festive season. With the shifts taking place, the growth prospects in this segment could only be exploited by businesses that can recognize trends early.

To provide retailers and manufacturers some actionable insights into the e-commerce trends, Actowiz Solutions help them in making well-informed decisions and eventually improve the bottom line. Data-driven perceptions of e-commerce products could help brands optimize supply chains to maximize sales. A business could determine the main areas that need attention depending on the product availability analysis on particular e-commerce channels, related discounts, and zip-code demands & supply statistics.

Let’s go through a few trend analyses and insights about well-known FMCG brands in the Chocolate, Biscuits, and Malt drink categories identified by Actowiz Solutions.

Chocolate availability in all the manufacturers averaged 47% during Jan-22, peaked at 64% during May-22, and decreased to 51% during Aug-22.

From 46% during Jan-22 to 74% during May, Mondelez has seen the most significant increase in availability, trailed by the decline of 68% during August.

Ferrero practiced among the sharpest availability drops. Although the brand availability progressively grew from 77% (January 22) to 94% (July 22), it registered a sharp decline (49%) on August 22.

The availability drop hurts a Brand’s eCommerce in two ways. Not only does a Brand loses sales directly, but poor availability also affects the keyword search rank, which further harms the sales.

Which manufacturers have been providing the maximum discounts?

A study about discounts provided across different manufacturers for malt drinks, chocolates, and biscuits suggests that a few brands have increased values, whereas others have decreased their discounts. These decisions might be taken because of availability, demands, and production cycle. For example, Parle has progressively reduced the discount rates.
