Mintel in the Media is a weekly review, bringing together a selection of the most high profile press stories showcasing Mintel’s data and analysis from around the world. Highlights from the past weeks include:

UK & Ireland

The Daily Telegraph: Big brash and brazenly American – but Black Friday is here to stay. Richard Perks, retail analyst at Mintel, says: ‘It’s an entirely American phenomenon, but it has no resonance over here. You just get a sense that some American executive has thought ‘it’s huge in America, it must be huge over here’.’

Bloomberg: ‘Le Black Friday’ Now Global With Deals Just a Click Away. British shoppers are expected to spend 200 million pounds ($316 million) more today than the average, according to researcher Mintel. That would be about 20 percent more than a typical December Friday, and roughly double the increase last year, Mintel says.

The Daily Telegraph: In Brief. A study by Mintel, the consumer analysts, shows that the rise of discount supermarkets means shoppers are trading up and traditional ‘budget’ foods, such as pizza, are being replaced with premium products.

The Economist: Discount supermarkets: Going native.  Customers also seem to prefer the growing number of locally sourced products at Aldi and Lidl to the internationally sourced ranges of its competitors, according to Sophie Dorbie at Mintel.

The Independent: Amazon kicks off Black Friday frenzy into week-long marathon. Black Friday 2014 is expected to be the biggest online shopping day ever in the UK, with Mintel predicting it will generate £200m of sales, twice as much as last year.

The Times: Need to know: Your 5-minute digest. Black Friday: Shops are likely to take £200 million on ‘Black Friday’ at the end of this week – the day after Thanksgiving in the United States – double the sum generated a year ago, according to research by Mintel for Retail Week.

Daily Mail: HARRIET ARKELL SAVVY SHOPPER: Sex up your G&T with cucumber garnishes and a dollop of marmalade. Jonny Forsyth, Mintel’s global drinks analyst, says: ‘The UK has seen an escalation of boutique brands in the past few years and these are performing strongly not just in high end gin bars but also in retail. You can buy several craft brands in Tesco, for example.’

The Daily Telegraph: The latest beer craze is here, and it’s booze free.  Jonny Forsyth, global drinks analyst at Mintel, said that lower alcohol means calorie-conscious drinkers can last longer at the pub. Some German brands in particular are marketed as vitamin-fuelled isotonic drinks that don’t hurt the tradition of the post-exercise beer.

Retail Times: Field marketing specialist, eXPD8, has top tips to help retailers get ready for Black Friday. While online sales are expected to increase more moderately than the same period last year, according to research by Mintel, this year an unprecedented number of physical retailers will also take part in Black Friday promotions that are expected to deliver £200m of sales.

The Daily Telegraph: Store wars loom as Black Friday starts early. November 28 is expected to be the biggest online shopping day so far in the UK, with Mintel predicting it will generate £200m of sales, twice as much as last year.

Financial Times: US retailers move Black Friday sales push online. According to Mintel, the research company, this year’s Black Friday could generate up to £200m of UK sales – double 2013’s figure.

The Sun: Are energy drinks poisoning our kids? Market research analyst Mintel says 73 per cent of 16 to 24-year-olds ‘rely’ on energy drinks to keep them going.

The Times: Shoppers to splurge £6000 every second. According to the latest figures from Mintel, the market research agency, retail sales will rise by 3 per cent this Christmas to £36.5 billion.

Financial Times: High spirits and hangovers after MPs target ‘beer ties’ Chris Wisson, senior drinks analyst at Mintel, the market research group, said that distribution of craft beer has been held back by the tied pubs system. “The craft movement has been limited on-trade because about 40 per cent of the pubs are tied,” he said. “So if the measure does go through, you would probably see more big brewers looking to acquire smaller businesses.”

The Guardian: The cocoa crisis: why the world’s stash of chocolate is melting away. “When I was a kid there were two chocolate cereals and your mother wouldn’t give them to you unless you did your homework,” says Marcia Mogelonsky, a food and drink analyst for Mintel, based in Chicago. Last year, she says, “40% of cereal launches had chocolate in them”.

Retail Week: Retailers countdown to Black Friday bonanza. Mintel estimates next week’s event will be twice the size of last year’s, which generated sales of £100m, as more retailers scramble to grab a slice of the action.

Chinadaily European: Consumers seeking protection from pollution. According to new research by Mintel, 40 percent of the population bought items designed to protect themselves from the effects of environmental pollution in the past year.

Forbes: Pumpkin spice: the flavor that rules the fall. According to food industry tracker Mintel, use of pumpkin as an ingredient in beverages alone has grown 130% since 2006, and pumpkin in food on menus has grown ten-fold since 2004.

US News & World Report: 5 credit card predictions for 2015. Andrew Davidson, a senior vice president at Mintel Comperemedia, a market research firm that studies credit card offers, agrees. “As the economy strengthens and delinquency rates remain low, instead of targeting consumers with high FICO scores, they’re extending offers to consumers with less-than-stellar credit.”

Business Insider: 54 bizarre ways you can track the economy. Research firm Mintel estimated men’s underwear sales fell 2.3% in 2009, the first time since 2003.

LA Weekly: Sales of gluten-free foods surge almost 70%, despite no increase in celiac disease.  According to the new research by the London-based market research firm Mintel, the U.S. gluten-free food market is estimated to reach sales of $8.8 billion in 2014 and will only continue to grow, especially as new FDA regulations “make it easier for consumers to purchase gluten-free products and trust the manufacturers who make them,” says Amanda Topper, food analyst at Mintel.

NBC Chicago: 7 tech trends for 2015. “It’s a world of synced devices that will become mainstream in 2015,” said Stacy Glasgow, a Chicago-based consumer trends consultant for market research firm Mintel. “It’s no longer about startups or early adopters. We’re seeing a lot of big retailers giving consumers smart products and devices.” Glasgow said that in Mintel’s research, the company found that 59 percent of U.S. consumers were interested in using an app or device to control their home. About 22 percent already owned a wearable device already. “We definitely see that number in a position to grow,” she said.

Just Style: Slow fashion: a fast-growing opportunity? A report by market research company Mintel in April found that more than 20% of US consumers bought clothes at a fast fashion retailer last year, up from 14% four years ago.

MediaPost Marketing Daily: Deck the malls with Boomer shoppers. According to Mintel, Boomers’ number one source for researching holiday gifts is the Internet, but many still prefer to make their purchases in the store. 43% of men ages 55 and up, and 38% of women in that age group, say they research items online, then wait to find them on sale in stores.

Whole Foods Magazine: Consumers are going coco-nuts. Much of the boom has been led by coconut water, a sector that saw product launches increase more than five fold over the five-year period starting in 2008, according to Mintel.

Prepared Foods: Gluten-free foods surge 63%. “Overall, the gluten-free food market continues to thrive off those who must maintain a gluten-free diet for medical reasons, as well as those who perceive gluten-free foods to be healthier or more natural,” says Amanda Topper, food analyst at Mintel.

Beverage World: New beverage targets LDL cholesterol. In fact, according to Mintel, within the next 40 years 20% of all consumers worldwide will be aged over 60.
