Private-label vendors’ expansion of geographic presence and product line extension
Various private-label vendors, including Lidl and Kroger, are involved in the rapid expansion of their geographic presence in the US. For instance, Lidl launched its first store in the US in 2017. Since then, the German supermarket grocery chain has managed to launch almost 53 stores across the US by the end of 2018. Apart from these expansions, vendors are also expanding their private-label product offerings in their stores across the US. For instance, ALDI planned to expand its private-label offerings in fresh, organic, vegetarian, and vegan range to its 1,600 stores across the US in 2018. As these products are economical and are not compromised on quality, product line extension will further increase the demand for private-label food and beverage products among consumers.
Intense competition between private-label and national brands
The private-label food and beverage market in the US is highly competitive due to the presence of various private-label and global vendors. The national brands have a strong customer base with high brand reputation compared with private-label vendors. National brands also have the advantage of economies of scale, which helps them leverage innovative marketing strategies and cover a better geographic reach. The other huge drawback of the fragmented structure of private-label food and beverage market in the US is that it presents a barrier to technologies that require standardization and integration. Intense competition between private-label vendors and national brands might slow down the growth of the market in the US during the forecast period.
