Functional Drinks Market in China
According to the Nielsen report, the consumption of functional beverages in China is not high compared to other market shares, but the prospects are very impressive. In 2015, China will become the world's largest beverage market. The Chinese beverage market has now shown great potential, among which functional beverages and health beverages have more room for development. The development of China's beverage industry will also face two changes, the rapid growth of production to the growth of sales revenue, formula innovation to research and development innovation. Functional beverages have made great progress in China since 2010. Take Red Bull as an example. According to AC Nielsen data, Red Bull accounted for 76% of the market share of energy beverages in 2014. Dongpeng Special Beverage, ranked second, and Le Hu, ranked third, each accounted for less than 10% of Red Bull's market share, while Zhongwo and Black Card markets for food products accounted for less. From the perspective of product characteristics, products that imitate and follow Red Bull occupy the mainstream of the market, and product characteristics and innovation are far from enough. At the same time, the characteristics of the crowd are narrow and market innovation is required.
Development of New Functional Beverage Products
At present, there is no major brand in the market for ordinary food functional beverages, and the scale of each brand is relatively small. Therefore, it is possible to develop natural anti-fatigue beverages of ordinary food, which will be different from Red Bull's mixed fruit taste and will help occupy the food anti-fatigue beverage market. At the same time, with the advent of the "bow-down era", more and more modern people use smart phones and tablet computers. Eye fatigue is a big problem. At present, there are few drinks for people with eye fatigue in the market. However, if a beverage for eye fatigue is developed separately, the product is slightly thin, so new products can be developed for people with double fatigue of physical fatigue and eyesight fatigue. In addition, the trend of beverage of health food can not be ignored, drinking convenience and convenience make beverage become a good drinking carrier of health functional food. Eye protection, beauty, weight loss, anti-oxidation, intestinal health are functional drinks very good development direction.
The development of new brands and products requires consideration of four points:
1. Introducing beneficiary points: introducing new beneficiary points from seemingly unrelated categories to provide new product value;
2. Solve the shortcomings of existing products: eliminate the trouble that consumers cannot have both in product selection;
3. Transfer value approach: the use of more widely accepted prices to allow more consumers to enjoy the benefits of new products;
4. Provide benefits in new ways: using new product forms or packaging to meet needs that are not met by existing products;
5. Effective use of brand platform: use existing brand assets to expand new categories and products.
