  1. 1. International Markets Bureau MARKET INDICATOR REPORT | APRIL 2010 Health and Wellness Trends In India
  2. 2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY INSIDE THIS ISSUE DID YOU KNOW? PAGE 2 ALTERNATIVE BEVERAGES TO CARBONATED DRINKS ARE ENJOYING GREAT SUCCESS IN THE INDIAN MARKET. “ ” Health and Wellness in India Market Data 3 Fortified/Functional 4-5 Better-For-You 6-8 Nutraceuticals 8-11 Organics 11-12 Definitions 13 Reducing fat intake is the most important and frequently practiced dietary approach by Asia Pacific consumers. Health-conscious urbanites have increased spending on the services of dieticians, nutritionists, weight-loss centres and gyms.    This report uses definitions for fortified/functional, better-for-you, nutraceutical and organic foods as defined in Annex “A”. India’s population of 1.1 billion, second highest in the world, is expected to reach 1.3 billion by 2015. India also has one of the youngest populations in the world, with the proportion of under-29s projected to reach 56% by 2015. This group views shopping as a form of entertainment and is brand-conscious. With more than half of the population young and single, the processed food, eating out, leisure, and health and fitness sectors have experienced high consumer spending. Middle-aged adults (ages 45-55) currently form the second largest proportion of the Indian population (21.2%), a share expected to increase to 23.4% by 2015. Health related products are an important part of this group’s discretionary spending. Pensioner’s make up only 5.1% of the Indian population, but due to increased health consciousness they are spending more on fitness and medication. A key trend is the move toward natural products comprising herbs, vitamins and minerals. India’s economic progress has given rise to a stronger middle class, which is the main driver behind most consumer trends, however they are spending on non-consumable products. The Indian middle class is expected to grow from 50 million in 2005 to 583 million in 2025. This increase could boost consumer spending to US $30 billion on high- end goods by 2015. High-income families will account for 2% of the population, but 20% of consumption by 2025. The food and drink market is emerging as one of the fastest-growing segments in the Indian retail industry. The processed food industry is likely to register growth of more than 15% in 2008-2009 owing to rising exports and an expanding domestic market. Packaged food is considered to be clean, hygienic and of good quality—driving factors in the purchasing of convenience foods. The increased emphasis on a healthy lifestyle is part of a trend to look fitter and well-groomed. The rise in health-consciousness explains the huge increase of 203.5% on health goods and medical services expenditures from 1995-2007. The growth is expected to continue at a rate of 63.3% over 2007-2015. Indian consumers are joining weight loss clinics, a trend very popular with northern Indians whose diets have a high intake of saturated foods. The market for products that reduce stress, prevent aging, help the heart and fight diabetes are all on a growth curve. Industry refers to the broad basket of health-oriented wellness products as the fast- moving health goods (FMHG) sector. FMHG includes OTC medications as well as pain relievers, 'nutraceuticals', digestives, and anti-aging and revitalizing potions. Low brand loyalty and increased price-sensitivity is still preventing the Indian food retail market to unfold to it’s true potential. However, unique-to-the-Indian-consumer innovative products that provide qual- ity and affordability will benefit.

  4. 4. FORTIFIED/FUNCTIONAL PAGE 4 Consumer Trends  Generally speaking consumer awareness of fortified/functional products is low. A recent survey shows 80% of Indians agree that health considerations significantly influence their choice of food and drinks. Approximately 48% of these respondents feel that functional food claims play a significant role in their purchasing decisions for food and beverage products. Products that reduce stress, prevent aging, help the heart and fight diabetes are all on a positive growth curve in India. Dairy-based beverages such as reduced-fat flavoured milk drinks and sour milk drinks are expected to witness double-digit value growth over the forecast period of 2007to 2015. India, the world's largest malt-based drink market, accounts for 22% of the world's retail volume sales, as they are traditionally consumed as milk substitutes. These drinks are marketed as nutritious and are mainly consumed by the old, the young and those who are ill. Sales got a boost by improved retail and distribution in recent years. Cereal bars, digestive biscuits, and functional bread products have also found acceptance among Indian consumers. Cereals and cereal substitutes account for 38% of rural consumers’ monthly household food spend- ing.Wheat is the main cereal eaten in northern and western Indian states. Rice cereal is preferred in the south- ern and eastern states. Distribution Source: Health and Wellness Sector: Euromonitor 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Grocery Retailers Non-Grocery Retailers Chemists/Pharmacies Healthfood shops Other Non-Grocery Retailers Direct Selling Fortified/Functional Purchases by Retail Type—Analysis by Percentage
  5. 5. PAGE 5 Companies and Brands  With rising pressure on margins following the economic slowdown, retailers are now looking at private label sales to boost their bottom lines. These retailers have projected at 10 to 15% increase in private label sales over the next two to three years.

Below you will find the details concerning these products launches. Eighty new functional-cardiovascular products were launched. The most active sub-category was oils with 19 new products introduced, followed by 10 new hot cereal product introduction. Both the cold cereals and sweet biscuits/ cookies categories introduced five new products each. The nuts and savory biscuits/crackers sub-categories each had four new products appear on store shelves. Under the functional–immune system product category 36 products were launched. Ten baby food products were introduced. Seven new oils were launched, two medicated confectionery, two cold cereals and one syrup products were also introduced to the market.
  6. 6. PAGE 6 BETTER-FOR-YOU Consumer Trends Reducing fat intake is the most important and frequently practiced dietary approach by consumers in Asia Pacific. Low cholesterol oil products are becoming increasingly popular among the Indian consumers, who are most prone to heart disease in the world, due to their lifestyle and eating habits. Indian consumers are increasingly seeking to reduce or modify their sugar intake. Shops are now stocking more low- fat products and sugar-free foods, but these are still niche markets. In urban areas, these products are showing impressive growth year-on-year.  In urban areas, people often prefer to buy bottled drinking water in restaurants and while travelling.  Indians have a strong preference for fresh products, and traditional spices and ingredients. Urban homes are spending on processed food and fruits. The most popular fruit for Indian consumers is the banana, followed by guavas, mangoes and mangosteens, and tomatoes. In India rice and pulses such as lentils are the base ingredients of the diet.

  7. 7. PAGE 7 Companies and Brands  The table below highlights a continuous decline in market share in the better-for-you category for the major players. Private label brands are often perceived to offer quality at par with other national brands, and offer tiered pricing which caters to a broader spectrum of consumers. Tamil Nadu Cooperative Milk Producers Federation Ltd showed growth at a minimal 0.01% in 2006. This increase may be attributed to the fact that Indian consumers are moving away from carbonated drinks due to more health conscious awareness. Source: Euromonitor International New Products The following information has been taken from Mintel.  Over 2009 there were 788 new better-for-you foods products launched in India. Below are the top new products launches.  There were 190 new low/no/reduced fat products launched. Cold cereals topped the chart with the most new product introductions at 32.

Hot cereals led this category in new product launches with six, followed by three new products under the rice and fish products sub-categories.

Consumer Trends  Vitamin and dietary supplement retail sales have doubled since 2001 totaling US$563.2 million in 2008, and are expected to reach US$749.4 million by 2013.  In response to declining health and increased awareness of good health, India’s over-the-counter (OTC) vitamins and minerals supplement market is growing rapidly. Nutraceutical sales in India for 2009 reached US$1,323.2 million. NUTRACEUTICALS
  9. 9. PAGE 9 There is a marked difference in consumption between urban and rural consumers. Urban consumers represent 70% of the vitamin and dietary supplement market, versus 30% attributed to rural consumers. Indian consumers are spending more on nutritional supplements to combat the effects of stress.Protein supplements and items relating to muscle building are popular, due to the increasing fitness and bodybuilding activity among the urban elite. India consumes the largest quantity of tea in the world. Tea makes up 94% of out-of-home, per capita, hot drink consumption, and almost 70% of in-home consumption.Sales of coffee, tea and cocoa in India increased by 14% from 1995 to 2007.The availability of imported tea on retail shelves has increased and there has been growth in sales of tea bag and flavoured teas. Dieting is more prevalent than walking or cycling for weight-loss. Rising obesity levels and hypertension in India means that health will become an increasingly important focus for consumers, who will therefore seek out products that aid weight loss. In comparison to Western or European countries, sports do not play a dominant role in the Indian culture, which is traditionaly male dominated.However, young, urban adults are increasingly attracted to adventure sports, and this has led to growth in the popularity of river rafting, rock climbing and mountaineering clubs. This trend may lead to more market interest in reasonably priced sports nutrition products. Sport drinks comprise a niche category in India, with consumption largely centered in urban areas. High prices, however, discourage the average consumer from purchasing them. Energy-boosting drinks that are glucose-based (such as Glucon-D) are more traditionally used in India for rehydration. Note: 2009 data is provisional and based on part-year estimates.

  10. 10. PAGE 10 Companies & Brands  Ayurvedic products (more traditional products sought for their medicinal value) such as chyawanprash are competing with Western products in the supplements market. Direct sellers such as Amway and Herbalife, which have been in operation since 1999, are taking the lead in promoting health supplements, despite the availability of many low-cost Indian versions. Amway Corp appears to be leading with a steady hold on first place with a 10% market share. Indian consumers are shifting to private label products. The “Others” grouping of brands holds 52.7% of market share, though it has been declining over the past few years. As stated earlier, the possible reason for this group having captured such a large portion of the market is most likely due to price sensitivity and higher-end offerings. Of the remaining 35 companies, 33 hold less than 3% market share. Brands strong in Fast Moving Health Goods (FMHG) in India are Elder Pharma, Emami, Dabur, Hamdard, Zandu, Biotique and AUM Himalaya. Gatorade and Stamina are the two major player sports drinks.  Imported brands such as Coach's are finding takers in select cities.

  11. 11. PAGE 11 New Products The following information has been taken from Mintel. Over 2009 there were 302 nutraceutical products launched in India. Below are the top new products.  There were 55 new product launches in the high protein category. Hot cereals and meat substitutes each introduced seven new products. Snack/cereal/energy bars tied with baking ingredients and mixes at five new products a piece. Instant noodles, pasta and rice launched four new products, while vegetables and cold cereals introduced three new products each. Baby cereals introduced two new products as did the nut sub-category. “Others” rounded out the protein category with 12 new products.  Fifty-three new diabetic products entered the market. Sweeteners dominated the category with 11 new products. Six baking ingredients and mixes appeared on the shelves. Rice, chocolate tablets, and meat substitute each had three new product launches.

Following closely behind is the seasonings category with 22 new product launches. Savory/salty snacks and oils tied for third place with 13 new product launches each. There were 10 new hot cereal product launches and seven new honey products.  The anti-aging category had little activity in the way of new product launches, however, there were three introductions: two oils and one medicated confectionery. ORGANICS Consumer Trends  According to the Indian Competence Centre for Organic Agriculture, the organic food industry in India is estimated currently at US$129 million in 2009. Of the Indian consumers buying organics, 66% cited the health of their children as the main thrust for purchasing organic food. Naturalness and wholesomeness is driving growth in the consumption of organic eggs. Indian consumers prefer organic marmalade, organic strawberry jam, organic tea, organic honey, organic cashew butter and various organic flours.
  12. 12. PAGE 12 Distribution  Production of organic food has increased in India over the last couple of years, however, about 70% of the organic food produced in India is exported. Due to low consumer awareness about organic food, supermarkets hardly stock any on their shelves. So it is even more unlikely for smaller stores sell organic food. The awareness of organics is gradually increasing in urban areas, and in the future supermarkets are expected to stock more of it, as the middle class grows and consumer awareness improves. Various stakeholders in the Indian organic’s community are pushing to have organic products carried in regular chainstores, making it more easily accessible. Companies & Brands No statistical data is available for brand or company market share, however, in the table below, listed in descending order, are the most popular brands of organic food and beverages in the Indian market for 2008-2009.

  13. 13. PAGE 13 This report analyses the market for Health and Wellness Food and Beverages in India. For the purposes of this study, the market has been defined as follows:  Functional Foods— Items to which health ingredients have been added. These functional foods and beverages should have a specific physiological function and/or are enhanced with added ingredients not normally found in the product, providing health benefits beyond their nutritional value. The categories covered in this segment are: added calcium, functional digestive, functional immune system, functional bone health, and vitamin/mineral fortified. Better for you (BFY) Foods— The category includes packaged food and beverage products where the amount of a substance considered to be less healthy (fat, sugar, salt, carbohydrates) has been actively reduced during production. To qualitfy for inclusion in this category, the “less healthy” element of the food stuff needs to have been actively removed or substituted during the processing. This should form part of the positioning/marketing of the product. Products which are naturally fat/sugar/carbohydrate—free are not included. The categories covered in this segment are: low/no/reduced fat, low/no/reduced sugar, low/no/reduced sodium, /low/no/reduced glycemic, and no/low/reduced cholesterol. Nutraceuticals—Natural substances are found in food which have medicinal properties to treat or prevent certain diseases. These natural substances can be added to the diet by increasing consumption of certain foods, or can be taken as nutritional supplements. Products typically claim to prevent chronic diseases, improve health, delay the aging process, and increase life expectancy. The categories covered in this segment are: vitamins, sports products, herbal supplements, meal replacement products, and slimming products. Organic—Products that are certified organic by an approved certification body. Depending on the country, such products are called “organic” biological” or “ecological’. The usage of the above categories are taken from both Euromonitor International and Mintel. These groupings represent globally accepted classification and product identification for the purpose of data collection. ANNEX ‘A’ DEFINITIONS
