About Nielsen Business Barometer Survey

The Nielsen Business Barometer is an online survey designed to


gauge Vietnam’s business leaders’ sentiment. Topics include
advertising spend, growth forecasts and among other current hot
topics. The online survey is conducted twice-yearly and covers
companies from various industries throughout Vietnam. The first
wave is conducted every April and the second wave is conducted

Nielsen
Business Barometer Executive Insights
• Most businesses continue to ride the “crest of the wave”
in Vietnam and expect to continue to do so.
– Just under 70% of companies are expecting double digit
growth in the next 12 months

• For this growth to continue, nearly all business leaders


agree that they now need to look beyond traditional
markets of HCMC and Hanoi for growth, and they see
the rural market as a great opportunity for this.

• Business leaders expect the Vietnamese consumers to


become more promotionally driven
– Purchasing more on promotion
– Trading down to cheaper brands
– Buying bigger pack sizes to save money

Key observations
• Business leaders in general believe the Vietnam market has
“weathered the storm” of the Global Economic Crisis
• You need to act fast because
– Your competitors growth expectations are very high
– Nearly all business leaders expect the market to continue to see healthy
growth
– Most business leaders are looking beyond traditional markets of HCMC
and Hanoi and now see the next frontier for growth as Rural Vietnam
• According to business leaders consumers are becoming “promotional
junkies” in Vietnam
– Purchasing more on promotion
– Trading down to cheaper brands
– Buying bigger pack sizes to save money
• To continue to grow in Vietnam we need to be more active than ever.
This includes innovative forms of communication not used heavily
here such as the internet, mobile phones and other forms of
marketing to ensure the relevance of our brands.

HCMC vs. Hanoi Regional Differences Study
This study looks at differences on consumer
behavior, such as individual vs. collective decision
making, purchase influencers, adoptiveness and
more across 40 different categories.

The qualitative phase includes 14 focus group
discussions and the quantitative phase covers 600
respondents. The survey was conducted in May
2009.

Nielsen
Executive Summary
• Attitudes of both markets can be defined as individualistic for
the Saigonese while Hanoians have a collective mindset

• Saigonese live for the moment while Hanoians are more


calculated and planned

• The role of advertising is more critical in Hanoi. Price


promotions alone won’t appeal to Saigonese

• Is the Hanoi market really more premium?


– Yes but you will need substantial marketing investment in Hanoi to
achieve success

• How has the tougher economy impacted behavior?


– It differs by market and more importantly by category
– Saigonese in general have been more affected but have not made
drastic changes in their consumption habits
Individualism V Collectivism

The Hanoi consumer is a complex beast for
marketers
• Want it all but are willing to wait

• Want the best and will tell you the


price

• Seek others reaffirmation of their


purchases

• Ask others opinions prior to


purchase

• Love promotions and are aware of


“It’s not ok when your prices
