Nielsen’s 2016 Southeast Asia Breakthrough Innovation Report reveals Southeast Asia’s best breakthrough innovations of 2016.
Nielsen reviewed 12,920 new consumer products (launched in 2013 and tested through to end 2015) to identify the 10 most successful breakthrough innovations. Products were assessed on the degree to which they deliver a new value proposition to the market (distinctiveness), ability to generate significant year-one sales (relevance), and ability to achieve at least 90% of year-one sales in year two (endurance).

About the Southeast Asia Breakthrough Innovation Report: The 2016 report is the second edition of the Nielsen Southeast Asia Breakthrough Innovation Report. The report looks at new products launched in more than 160 product categories, representing 71% of annual fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sales across Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia. Our rigorous review process centres around three key criteria: distinctiveness, relevance and endurance. Nielsen began this journey five years ago in North America where our first Breakthrough Innovation Report launched in 2011. Since then, we have launched the report in Europe, India, China and Southeast Asia. Globally, we have logged thousands of hours of analysis, interviews, and conversations with industry leaders to uncover the secret to achieving true innovation success. The Breakthrough Innovation Report provides a platform to celebrate and share best-of-breed innovation.
