2014-03-13 19:10:03 - The UK Cooking and Baking Market to 2016 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Expenditure in the United Kingdom cooking market between 2007 and 2011 increased 3.1% to Â£1,04bn. Demand has benefitted from a more austere consumer, the continued influence of the dine-at-home trend and rising popular interest off the back of television shows such as ´The Great British Bakeoff´. Baking sub-categories have been the outperformers, with consumers viewing baking as a thrifty, cost-saving pursuit.
Interest in cooking and baking is on the rise, and consumers are displaying greater ambition in the kitchen. According to our research, 30.6% of consumers have thrown a dinner party at home during the past six months, with 11.6% doing so more than the year previous. 31.2% of consumers also said that they had baked at home more
compared to the previous year. However, with ´replacement´ being the primary driver of demand for 83.0% of consumers, manufacturers and retailers face a challenge to bring products to the market which are innovative and can provide greater convenience and easier solutions to cooking and baking.
The grocers dominate the market, holding just over a fifth of total expenditure. However, Cooking and Baking remains highly competitive, and some retailers are enjoying success off the back of developing own-brand ranges, differentiating through innovation and enhancing the shopping experience through service initiatives. Over the next five years, we forecast that John Lewis, Lakeland, Asda, Ikea, Sainsbury´s and Wilkinson will be the outperformers.
