Summary
The entire FMCG industry is influenced by the human search for "better." It is this notion that drives the Premiumization and Indulgence trend across the market, and supports its continued growth.

Key Findings

  • Baby care products are most likely to be purchased from the premium sector, in line with consumers’ willingness to buy "the best they can" for their child. This highlights the importance of relative premiumization; that is trading up from budget to the mainstream, or premium to super-premium, depending on one’s resources.
  • In food, Premiumization and Indulgence is both the new wave of comfort eating, using high-end indulgent foods and ingredients as small rewards, and a route to self-branding.
  • The habitual nature of tobacco usage highlights the paradox of premium consumption. Tobacco consumers are brand-loyal, with only 17% of smokers saying they often experiment in their product choice and more regular smokers being more likely to say they do not notice how much they spend.
