The Interactive China Dairy Dashboard

The Tracker’s dashboard provides a wealth of up-to-date information including category performance, monthly performance, pricing distribution, market mapping by brand, category consumption, perceptions of origin, product claim consumption and performance, segment performance, compelling features and preferred channels, all which can be sliced and diced based on user needs. Below are just two examples of what you’ll see.


China dairy category consumption and potential

By understanding dairy categories by Sales, Buyers base size and consumers purchase intentions, brands can identify the strategic focuses for each category. For example, consumers of Drinking Yogurt, Probiotics Drinks and Flavoured Drinks are a relatively small base but they intend to continue purchasing the category. Brands should encourage category trial. Cheese and Milk Powder enjoy a larger consumer base but building consumption habits in the category is key to growth. Brands can also understand seasonal variations in demand for products to optimise marketing calendars in addition to making decisions based on the full picture, rather than preferences at one point of time.


To complement the insights derived from online sales, the dashboard includes data from China Skinny’s quarterly China Dairy Category Consumer Sentiment & Behaviour Survey, which explores Chinese consumers’ sentiment and purchase intent for dairy products. This can be sliced and diced by geography, demographic, income and family makeup, to allow laser-focused decisions specific to the target market.

compelling China milk and dairy product features and claims

Brands can identify the most desirable product features, brand characteristics and claims, assisting branding and communications teams, and their agencies, to understand which features, positioning and messaging are most resonant for their target market and how this is changing over time. Similarly, product development teams can track which product features hold the most appeal to consumers and identify trends through the longitudinal data. As Chinese consumer preferences can vary between region and demographic, insights can be drilled down to allow targeted product and positioning optimisation by target segment.

The China Skinny Dairy Tracker’s up-to-date data and dashboard format allows brands to have a deep understanding of the market and how it is changing to adapt marketing and channel strategies, communications and positioning, and product development to maximise your ROI in China.
