New Market Report: Other Hot Drinks in South Africa

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Mar 04 2015

Other plant-based hot drinks refer to chicory-based drinks, which compete directly with coffee in South Africa. Chicory-based drinks are more affordable than coffee, and appeal to the lower LSM groups. However, with price increases and economic pressure, consumers are dropping out of the category and drinking black tea instead as it is more affordable.

Competitive Landscape

Nestlé South Africa dominates South African other hot drinks with a value share of 46% in 2014. National Brands Ltd falls into second position with a 34% share in 2014. Kraft Foods South Africa and GlaxoSmithKline SA (Pty) Ltd have a very small share overall, with less than 1% each. However, the companies had a stronger presence in flavoured powder drinks with their respective Cadbury Drinking Chocolate and Horlicks malt-based hot drinks brands.

Industry Prospects

Overall, with other plant-based hot drinks accounting for the bulk of sales of other hot drinks, the key future trend will continue to be affordability amongst lower-income consumers. However, within malt-based hot drinks, the health and wellness trend will be a strong driving force, as there will be a greater focus on fortification in order to appeal to consumers’ health concerns. Chocolate-based flavoured powder drinks will continue to focus on both affordability and indulgence.
