Private-Label Share during the Current Economic Slowdown: Investigation from the Czech, Slovak, Hungarian and Polish Markets

Central European Business Review, 2012, vol. 2012, issue 1, 27-32

Abstract: This paper investigates whether the current economic slowdown in four CEE countries was accompanied by strong growth of private-label share as theory suggests. Unexpectedly, based on the data of Nielsen Retail Measurement Service, we prove that the private-label share grew relatively slowly, although all four countries had a large potential for growth of this share. We demonstrate that the key reason behind this development was probably the massive in-store promotions that were decreasing the price gap between private labels and branded products. The managerial implications of these findings for both manufacturers and retailers within the region are discussed.
