“While information on the label can be influential, the actual feel of the product can also sway shoppers’ purchasing decision.”

Some questions answered in this report include:
While many consumers claim to be uninfluenced by the packaging of products, its importance cannot be underestimated in contributing to brand equity and encouraging people to choose one product over another.
Glass bottles remain the most popular choice for consumers when it comes to alcoholic drinks, a likely result of the premium and quality cues which this format confers. However, the reputation of cans appears to be on the rise and is boosting their appeal in markets such as beer. While there are signs of waning overall interest in green issues, the fact that two thirds of drinkers try to recycle their drinks packaging, underlines how recyclability has become the expected norm in this market.
With the UK’s population ageing, alcohol brands will have to respond to and prioritise convenience and easy-to-open packaging. De-cluttering packaging is also important, particularly as a high proportion of drinkers want even clearer information on alcohol and calorie content. With the Government likely to keep a close eye on drinks manufacturers, as it aims to promote responsible drinking, operators would be well served to continue to develop their packaging with CSR in mind, whether in terms of responsible drinking or via their green credentials.
This report examines new product development and consumer trends in the UK market for alcoholic drinks packaging in relation to consumer products. Soft drinks are excluded and are covered in Mintel’s Food and Drink Packaging Trends – UK, February 2013 report. This includes outer and inner packaging purchased with products, but excludes packaging used for bulk transportation and industrial purposes.
The report also considers the role that labelling plays in enhancing product packaging in terms of on-shelf appeal and providing product information.
This report does not follow the usual format of Market Intelligence reports, due to the nature of the industry. For example, the large number of suppliers in this industry means that it is not applicable to include a section on the supply structure or manufacturer/brand share data, and due to the absence of consumer-facing sales of packaging as a standalone product, it is not applicable to include a section on market size.
