Key Highlights
From a sample of 40 leading FMCG companies across ingredients, food, beverages, and household and personal care, the average was Randamp;D accounted for 1.6% of spend in 2011. Most companies increased Randamp;D spend over the period 2008-11, especially among some of the companies with much lower Randamp;D intensity.

The move to the networked FMCG model is both a threat and an opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises(SMEs). The development of open innovation among the top 100 FMCG companies will create a new landscape that places a high premium on innovation and a higher premium on patented innovation.

For 'big' FMCG the move to a more networked model will bring a forking of strategy between nichebuster or blockbuster models, changes in Randamp;D centralization, more pressure from retailer adoption of open innovation, growth in licensing and spinoffs, growth in outsourcing, and the possible emergence of small virtual aggregation companies.
