- 64. DPSG SWOT ANALYSISStrengths: Weaknesses: Strong portfolio of brands. Minor compared to larger peers. Integrated business model. Rely on 3rd-party bottlers for Strong customer relations. packaging and distribution. Differentiation Strategies. Continued focus on carbonated unique taste. soft drinks rather than alternative Snapple Facts and functional beverages. Lack of international exposure.Opportunities: Threats: Growth to international markets. Loss of partner bottlers. New product launches or line Socio-cultural trends towards extensions. healthier lifestyles Growth into functional (energy drink) market. - sugar tax People have more discretionary income.
- 65. KEY ISSUE #1 Growing health consciousness in the United States. U.S. consumption of soft drinks in 2011 fizzled to its lowest level since 1996. Customers are opting for bottled waters, juice, teas, and energy drinks. Energy drink market grew 16% in 2011. Dr. Pepper Snapple (along with Coke and Pepsico) lost volume in 2011. The average U.S. customer drank 714 8-ounce servings of soft drinks in 2011, down from 728 8-ounce servings in 2010. Total soft drink consumption was 9.274 billion cases in 2011, down 1% from the year before, and the seventh straight year of decline.http://www.foodproductdesign.com/news/2012/04/u-s-soda-consumption-fizzles.aspx
- 66. KEY ISSUE #1 Growing health consciousness in the United States. In the United States, a 2005 survey reported: 74% of consumers claimed to have changed their eating habits due to health and nutrition concerns. 87% considered nutrition an important factor in purchasing groceries. 64% stated a willingness to pay more for healthier versions of food items. Health-conscious households make up 18% of the U.S. market overall.http://tippie.uiowa.edu/marketing/research_papers/grocery%20basket%20data.pdf
- 67. KEY ISSUE #1 Growing health consciousness in the United States. Over the past 5 years, the CSD industry has declined 7.1%. It is expected to decrease by 2% a year over the next five years.
- 68. RECOMMENDATION for KEY ISSUE #1 What we are doing now: Launched a new line of 10-calorie drinks Dr. Pepper Ten Plans for 7 Up Ten, Sunkist Ten, A&W Ten, RC Ten, and Canada Dry Ten
- 69. RECOMMENDATION for KEY ISSUE #1 What we could be doing: Health and Wellness Market Water New age beverages Teas and Juiceswww.jdford.com/pdfs/JDF_Comp_Health_Wellness_09.pdf
- 70. KEY ISSUE #2 Lack of focus on alternative and functional beverage markets. These markets have seen strong growth as consumer preferences have shifted away from CSD products to healthier options. DPSG focuses the majority of their resources and efforts on existing and new CSDs. By DPSG ignoring emerging product categories such as energy drinks, this could be a missed growth opportunity going forward.
- 71. KEY ISSUE #2 Lack of focus on alternative and functional beverage markets. President and CEO Larry Young: No, were still very happy with our portfolio we stay focused on the total portfolio, but we are putting a lot of emphasis right now on our carbonated soft drinks. As I mentioned a moment ago, I think with the tough economic times were going to see people come back in and recognize that value. Thats where were putting a strong focus.
- 72. KEY ISSUE #2 Lack of focus on alternative and functional beverage markets. Example Bottled Waterhttp://www.accuval.net/insights/industryinsights/detail.php?ID=142
- 73. RECOMMENDATIONS for ISSUE #2Diet Drink Promotion A more health conscious world is looking for an alternative drink for a fit lifestyle. Products such as Snapple, Hawaiian Punch, and Motts have show no more than 0.5% growth. Increase our promotion of non-soda diet drinks such as Snapple and Hawaiian punch.
- 74. RECOMMENDATIONS for ISSUE #2 Market for Bottled Water Dasanis bottled water volume rose 11% in 2011. Implemenation of our new bottled water product into the market. Multiple advertising and promotional campaigns for Dr. Aqua.http://www.beveragemarketing.com/reportcatalog4a.html
- 75. RECOMMENDATIONS for ISSUE #2 Market for Energy Drinks Energy Drink Sales grew 14.4 percent by voulme in 2011. Boost and relaunch the Venom product. Generate growth and sales through new sponsorships and promotion.http://www.cnbc.com/id/46796332
- 76. KEY ISSUE #3 Low international presence. DPSG only has a presence in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America. Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are both in over 100 countries worldwide. International segment has been a primary driver for these companies as health consciousness has increased in North America. Low exposure presents a significant growth opportunity to DPSG, but they have not indicated they want to expand.
- 77. RECOMMENDATION for ISSUE #3 Strategic Thrust: Compete against Coca Cola, PepsiCo, Nestle. Potential for large increases in revenues. Less over-reliance on one particular country. Short-Term (5-10 years) Expand international presence into Europe and South America. Europe represents 35.2% of the soft drink industry. (2011) Long-Term (10-20 years) Expand into Asia-Pacific. Represents 11.4% of soft drink industry. (2011) Length of time will vary based on whether this percentage increases or decreases.
- 78. WHY THESE REGIONS WORKhttp://mapsofworld.com/world-top-ten/maps/world-top-ten-carbonated-soft-drink-consumer-countries.jpg
- 79. OVERVIEW of EUROPE 2002 Data Measurement = Liters per Person Average Consumption per Country = 89.8 litershttp://www.nationmaster.com/graph/foo_sof_dri_con-food-soft-drink-consumption
- 80. KEY ISSUE #4 Loss of partner bottlers. DPSGs distribution network is heavily reliant on Coca Cola and PepsiCo. If Coke and Pepsi make their bottling partners wholly owned subsidiaries, DPSG will see amplified costs. This will lead to unfavorable positions with retailers and consumers.
- 81. RECOMMENDATION for ISSUE # 4 Become less dependent on 3rd party bottlers by improving and expanding upon the DPSG owned bottling system Activities that support this recommendation: Recently resolved an issue with our oldest bottler of Dr. Pepper, the Dublin Dr. Pepper Bottling Company Sued the bottler because they Sold the soft drink beyond the six county territory designated in its licensing agreement To end the bottlers unauthorized use of the label Dublin Dr. Pepper
