Market Insights

“Availability of the product in various colors, shapes, size and fragrances is stimulating the market growth”

Candle manufacturing is a multibillion dollar industry worldwide. During the holiday season, more than, one-third of candle sales take place. Candles come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors and scents. It has been observed that end users tend to use candles once a week. Fragrance, color and price are widely considered among the most important factors when buying candles. Mass merchandise retailers and department or home decor stores are most common locations where people tend to buy candles.

In the consumer goods industry, retail shelf space and product availability plays a very vital role in creating demand for the product. Distribution is a key success factor in the current candles industry. Rising competition and comparatively moderate growth rate of the candles market has compelled companies to focus on increasing product penetration. Supermarkets, drugstores, mass merchandisers, discount stores etc. play an important role in the distribution of candles. Rising consumer demands for organic scented candles, specialty candles, and liquid candles among others is driving the shift from niche distribution channels to mainstream mass retailers. Mass merchandisers such as Wal-Mart are introducing scented candles products. Moreover, supermarkets are also expanding their product range. This has resulted in a sharp increase in sales of candles.
