Around the world, private labels are competing effectively with big brands, growing at 7.7%, just slightly behind the latter’s 11.1%.
As supply chains remain disrupted by the pandemic and global events, consumers look for substitutes to their normal brands, if these could be found consistently and reliably, online or in-store, at acceptable prices and quality.
Private labels who deliver such value, especially in their home markets, have a strong opportunity to grab market share. Such volume, availability, and affordable pricing comprise one end of the value proposition private labels bring to the table.
On the other end of the spectrum, boutique private labels deliver superior quality for niche markets or rapidly changing consumer preferences, often at premium pricing. Natural, organic, and sustainable narratives increasingly come into play for these high margin products. Retailers thus need manufacturers who can adapt quickly to these trends and have the technical expertise to develop a range of such products.
Even for large grocery store chains, costs compound quickly when executing a private label. Product development, minimum order quantities of raw materials and packaging materials, and manufacturing overheads add time and cost as each stage goes through middlemen who add their own margins to the mix.
Taken together, the challenges for both ends of the private label opportunity are sourcing, scale, and time to market.
