LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent private-label food and beverage market in the US report. This research report also lists 21 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
“Intense competition among vendors and rapid changes in technology are significant risk factors. The competition has led to an increase in the number of M&A, where smaller entities are being acquired by or being merged with major players”
In the US food and beverage market, private labels are no longer seen as supplier low-cost and low-quality products, but as credible and viable alternatives to national brands. People look for value for money, irrespective of whether the product is being offered by a national brand or a private label. Private labels are traditionally more successful in segments where product differentiation is low, such as meat products and fresh produce items.
Competitive vendor landscape
The private-label food and beverages market in the US is fragmented, with the presence of many small and large vendors that compete based on price, quality, innovation, service, reputation, and promotion. Increased competition in the market is expected to result in a reduction of product prices in the market, which will negatively affect profit margins of the vendors and the growth of the market.
“Intense competition among vendors and rapid changes in technology are significant risk factors. The competition has led to an increase in the number of M&A, where smaller entities are being acquired by or being merged with major players,” says Poonam Saini, a lead food research analyst from Technavio.
To survive and succeed in this highly competitive environment, it is imperative for vendors to distinguish their products and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.
