Report Highlights

Value tiers have enabled brands to appeal to new consumers that they were not reaching before. They preserve brand equity better than price promotion. In some cases, they have also provided the opportunity to boost sales of premium tiers without brands losing their combined market share.

Brands are adding benefits to their products: over the last two years, the biggest difference between new branded products and private labels has been that the former are much more likely to be "natural" and/or organic. In personal care and household products brands are much more likely to make claims about their "long-lasting" nature.

Dual branding - adding one brand as a component to another - allows manufacturers to create a unique product that simply cannot be replicated by private label. Although this strategy can be tracked back to 1999, there has been a marked upswing since P&G began doing it from the mid-2000s.
