In support of Movember, (a charity which aims to raise awareness for testicular, prostate cancer and mental health problems) we will be publishing weekly articles on men's grooming including exclusive interviews with men's grooming brands; on Euromonitor International’s Beauty Passport page as well as featuring analysis on the men’s grooming market on our blog. In addition, daily data tweets from our men’s grooming data will be published at my twitter account.

While men’s deodorants remained both the biggest and the second fastest growing category within men’s toiletries in 2013, Euromonitor International Personal Appearances Survey conducted earlier this year revealed that shampoo was the most commonly used monthly product amongst male consumers. With total revenues of US$9.0 billion in 2013, men’s deodorants ranked as the second most used product in the survey, suggesting that, despite regular grooming routines varying greatly amongst men around the world, most men tend to stick to the basics.

Emi_fragrance-v1.4

However, absolute growth forecasts reveal that emerging markets like Mexico and Argentina will generate more value in men’s fragrances over 2013-2018. This indicates an opportunity for industry players to step up men’s variety, where prospects compare well with those of women’s. Middle Eastern markets, essentially Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will lead in premium unisex fragrances.

Nicholas MicallefAnalyst Insight by Nicholas Micallef - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicholas Micallef's profile on LinkedIn

The MENA remains a region facing political and macroeconomic hurdles; however, one area where local consumers do not seem to compromise is on fragrances. The use of scent in this region is prolific and is deeply ingrained within society’s traditions and lifestyle. In light of this, despite the region’s challenges, there are promising opportunities for fragrances in terms of olfactory creations and market prospects that are based on shared cultural heritage.

The MENA region is home to over 438 million consumers with 40% of the population aged below 20, whereas 60% live in urban zones. In 2013, fragrances’ sales in MENA amounted to US$2.9 billion, whilst over 2013-2018, fragrances is expected to increase by US$1.3 billion, thus raising the region’s proportion of the global market from 6% in 2013 to 9% in 2018. The top contributors in 2013 were Saudi Arabia, UAE, Israel and Iran, representing 78% of MENA sales rising to 80% in 2018. The fragrance per capita spend is projected to reach US$8.8 in 2018, higher than the global average of US$6.8.
