  1. Higher the CRPs, higher the opportunity for brand growth.
  2. Overall consumer reach points (CRP) have increased from 86 Bn to 89 Bn. However, the rate of growth has come down to 4% (from 18% in 2019)
  3. Covid impacted the frequency of purchase as average trips made to purchase grocery reduced but more purchases per trip were recorded in 2020. Purchase frequency reduced by 1% but spend per trip grew by 5%. This resulted in a lower number of brands (50%) growing in terms of CRP as compared to 2019 (72%).
  4. Growth in CRP is directly proportional to the brand hierarchy in the ranking. Across board, the percentage of brands growing fell by 22%. However brands in the top 50 only fell by 14% (over 2019).
  5. Penetration continues to remain the driving force. High penetrated brands still manage to grow faster. Low penetrated brands showcase a CRP growth of 3% while high penetrated brands show a 4.5 % growth
  6. At 88%, Colgate (including all brands such as Dental Cream, Cibaca, Active Salt, Gel etc.,) recorded the highest household penetration in 2020. 
  7. Overall brand gains (in terms of penetration) are led by health and hygiene brands like Dettol (13.3%), Lifebuoy (6.3%), Savlon (5.4%) and Harpic (4.3%).

K. Ramakrishnan, Managing Director, South Asia, Worldpanel Division at Kantar, said, “Brand footprint is a great way of measuring and rewarding brands by the extent to which they are chosen by consumers. Choice is a function of penetration and frequency. However, we always year after year find that brands grow a lot more on account of penetration gain than frequency gain. The biggest gainers in brand footprint 2020 were expectedly the hygiene brands. That said, the traditional leaders also held their positions by ensuring penetration growths even during the pandemic.”

Brand Footprint follows CRP-based ranking which considers the actual purchase made by the consumers and the frequency at which these purchases are made in a year. In other words, they measure the mass appeal of the brand (reflected in penetration) and the feel towards the brand (reflected in the number of times it is bought). 

In its ninth edition, Brand Footprint 2021 delves into 2020 rankings, brand success stories and the impact of Covid-19. It covers brands within FMCG under categories— food, home care, health and beauty, beverages and dairy measuring over 400 brands and 89 billion CRPs.
