Let's understand what this blog is about. It provides detailed information on certain FMCG products like Biscuits, Chocolates, and Malt Drinks and analyzes their search, availability, and promotions across brands like Blinkit, BigBasket, Swiggy, Dmart, etc.

First, take an example of how shopping is done online daily. You need certain food items and log into an eCommerce portal to search for the products. The cart gets filled with your desired products, and you check out after payment. Next, crosscheck the same effects on the competitor's site to avail discounts, if any.

Brands usually track and ensure the most searched keywords, availability of the products, and competitive offers and discounts to get your order. And for this whole process, they rely on Digital Shelf Analytics.

The FMCG Marketplace

The FMCG industry successfully makes a strong presence in the eCommerce market in India. By 2025, it is expected to rise significantly at a CAGR of 14.9%, reaching $220 billion by 2025. Although, the eCommerce concept has gained popularity with major players like Flipkart, Amazon, and Snapdeal. But, with the entry of online platforms like BigBasket, Grofers, Swiggy, etc., FMCG eCommerce has taken an enormous leap. This indicates buyers' ever-changing habits have made online selling necessary for the fast-moving consumer goods segment.

In the past two years, FMCG witnessed significant growth. Although several factors are involved, macro factors like inflationary pressure, government impetus, and consumption recovery have shown double growth for FMCG brands.

As per NielsenIQ's FMCG Snapshot for Q2 2022, a growth of 10.9% was seen in quarter June 2022 as compared to the previous quarter, which was 6%. However, this is expected to rise even more during the festive season. However, only those companies that can sense this rising trend early can witness growth opportunities.
