    DENISON, TX -- "I recycle,” said Vincent Shores, Denison resident. “Pretty much anything I have in the house that's recyclable, I recycle it.” Recycling hasn't always been an option for people who live in Denison, but last year the city started a new program that offers curbside pick-up. "I just need about two or three more bins actually,” said Shores. “I have to borrow my neighbor's."

LONDON, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The UK Pasta and Noodles Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Pasta &Noodles market in UK from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as retailer choices. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Pasta & Noodles market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Pasta & Noodles market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As consumer confidence increases proportionally to economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the organized retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. The weak UK economy has forced consumers to evaluate and possibly alter their consumption patterns of many products, including Pasta & Noodles. As economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets – making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Ambient Noodles, Ambient Pasta, Chilled Noodles, Chilled Pasta, Dried Noodles, and Dried Pasta.

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Unique retailer choice data at the product category level, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

Consumption frequency analysis reveals that Chilled Noodles are consumed by between 20% and 30% of UK consumers, depending on their age group. Consumption is highest among Early Young Adults, which suggests they value the short cooking time Chilled Noodles require.

While consumption of Chilled Pasta is similar among most age groups, it declines substantially among Older Consumers, where 56% of the age group are Non-users. The Older Consumers age group is one of the most valuable in the UK, therefore the market's value could be greatly increased by targeting this age group.

Women are slightly more valuable in the UK Pasta & Noodles market than men, with a 53% market share despite accounting for 51% of the population.

Key Highlights

Brand analysis reveals that the presence of private labels is quite high in the UK Pasta & Noodles market. Over three quarters of the volume of Ambient Pasta, Dried Pasta, and Chilled Noodles distributed is private label. Private label penetration is relatively low in Ambient Noodles and Dried Noodles, at approximately 30%, highlighting markets retailers may target to grow their market share.

Distribution of Pasta & Noodles in the UK is highly concentrated as the top four retailers account for almost 90% of the market by volume. Among them the top retailer has near a 40% share of the market in volume terms.

A significant "attitude-behavior" gap exists between the share of consumers citing that a trend affects their consumption and the actual share of the market value these trends influence. This is because consumers don't always act on these trends – the result is that overall trend influence is limited, but has the potential to grow.
