The China chocolate market has been growing steadily over the past five years and is expected to continue developing at such a rate in future as Chinese consumers gradually embrace the concept of real chocolate owing to rising incomes and greater exposure to the western lifestyle.
Since international chocolate brands came to China 30 years ago, chocolate has been regarded as a foreign product best suited for gifting during festive seasons. Personal consumption, however, remains quite occasional for various reasons such as its high price, consumer health concerns and competition from other snacks. Therefore, the key to build a much bigger and more sustainable chocolate market in China is to encourage more and more consumers to buy and eat chocolate for themselves on a day-to-day basis.
To achieve this, chocolate manufacturers need to consider differentiating their products’ positioning through greater focus on consumers’ functional and emotional needs. Currently, the product positioning of chocolates tends to focus on taste, mouth feel, and romantic messaging. Furthermore, a more active rate of product innovation and stronger efforts to target on-the-go occasions could also help to push overall chocolate consumption in China.
