GfK Out-of-Home Panel

Winning with Out-of-Home


GfK launches Out-of-Home Panel: All channels. Transparent consumers. New answers.


Out-of-Home (OOH) consumption accounts for a large share of spend on food. The potential for this sector is huge, as almost everybody could be a shopper. So, FMCG manufacturers and retailers, Hotels, Restaurants and Caterers, need precise OOH data to steer and grow their businesses.


By monitoring food and beverage consumption outside the home, GfK’s new OOH panel provides a full understanding of the market’s structure and dynamics. Utilizing innovative technology, our OOH Panel provides comprehensive market coverage, including all relevant categories and channels. Smart reporting via a mobile app delivers a detailed picture of consumer behavior. From grabbing a quick coffee-to-go or dining out in restaurants, by tracking consumers’ eating out consumption patterns, we help you answer your key business questions such as:

  • Opportunities: What is the OOH market size and structure? Which categories and retailers offer the greatest potential for my business? How much does my OOH business add to my in-home business?
  • Consumption: What are the purchase patterns of my target group and how could I profit from them?
  • Channels: Which channels are most relevant for me? What opportunities should I explore? 
  • Targeting: What is my OOH target group? How can I increase my reach with them? Can I improve my marketing and communication strategies?
  • Occasions: Which occasions do my customers prefer? What are my market shares and profitability within those different occasions? Do I have the right assortment? How could I increase my share?
