目錄

“Almost all producers have paid more attention to the consumer market and the commoditisation of baijiu has become a consensus of the industry. Brands need to go beyond price incentives and renovate their product packaging and marketing communication to better appeal to the mass market. At the same time, opportunities exist for premium baijiu brands to market baijiu as a representation of good taste to compete against wine and Western spirits and drive sales.” - Hao Qiu, Research Analyst.

  • Will customisability become a standard feature of baijiu in the future?
  • How to market premium baijiu as a representation of good taste?
  • How to commoditise baijiu beyond price incentives?

After more than one year adjustment of the Chinese spirits market since 2013, signs of gradual recovery has revealed in 2015. According to Mintel's estimates and forecast, retail value growth will be a positive 4.0% in 2015 after a negative -1.7% in 2014.

A more affordable and steadier price will help volume consumption bounce back.

Although the strong flavour has posed a major barrier for brands to encourage consumers to drink more baijiu, the relatively more fixed product impression among consumers is difficult to change. Instead baijiu brands could take cues from Western spirits companies and enhance the image/emotional perceptions of Chinese spirits via product innovation and marketing to drive future market growth.
