In the last article on Procter & Gamble, entitled “Procter & Gamble to Lose Number One Spot in Beauty”, it was stated that, despite losing its number one spot in the global beauty market, Procter & Gamble was expected to come back stronger and healthier. We now take a closer look into how the company’s portfolio is expected to shape up more specifically. Our previous analysis, Which Brands Could Procter & Gamble Divest to Inject Growth Elsewhere?, laid out the potential framework for divestment, which aligns strongly with the recently confirmed 43 brands to be sold off.

Story-Telling and Image-Building: Standalone Stores are Back in Vogue in Western Markets

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

In a world where everything moves towards digital, is there still a place for brick-and-mortar stores? Consumers have been increasingly turning online for their beauty purchases leading to an increase of 11% in online sales in 2014, but 84% of global beauty sales remain in the hands of physical stores. Beyond department stores, drugstores/chemists (which have been increasing their beauty space) and beauty specialists like Sephora and Douglas, stand-alone beauty stores are gaining traction. While they have long been a strong presence in Asia’s high street, in Western Europe and especially in the UK, standalone beauty stores are going through a renaissance. This is due to brands like Kiko, Aesop and L’Occitane, which have centred a large part of their brand identity on consumers’ in-store experience.

Coty Doubles in Size with P&G Brand Acquisition

Ildiko-SzalaiAnalyst Insight by Ildiko Szalai - Senior Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Ildiko Szalai's profile on LinkedIn

Coty is set to boost its presence in its core beauty categories via the US$12 billion bid it has reportedly won for Procter & Gamble’s spin-off beauty brands. Coty is undergoing significant changes; it is reducing its reliance on fragrances which generates most of its revenue (50% in 2014) and is now seeking to diversify its portfolio in terms of both category and region. The purchase of Wella and Clairol, if completed, will see Coty’s entry into hair care at global fifth position, whilst the purchase of Max Factor and Cover Girl will double the company’s global value share of colour cosmetics and the integration of Procter & Gamble’s prestige fragrances would see Coty rise to hold the leading global position in fragrances. However, Coty will continue to be challenged by the geographic reach of many of these newly purchased brands as their performances have historically been subdued as a result of their narrow focus on mature markets. Cover Girl generated 88% of its 2014 sales in North America and registered a sales decline between 2009 and 2014. Clairol meanwhile witnessed negative growth during this period due to its heavy reliance on the competitive US hair care market.

Procter & Gamble to Lose Number One Spot in Beauty

Oru_MohiuddinAnalyst Insight by Oru Mohiuddin - Senior Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Oru Mohiuddin's profile on LinkedIn

Procter & Gamble is reportedly selling part of its beauty division to Coty; it includes the Wella and Clairol hair care brands, in addition to its colour cosmetics and fragrances brands. This is part of Procter & Gamble’s longstanding plan to restructure and streamline its focus to become more competitive, but this is also likely to relegate the company to second place, down from the leading global position, and see it overtaken by its arch rival L'Oréal. The question is whether this move is absolutely necessary.

Four Ways that Technology is Changing Beauty

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

While the relationships of technology with fashion and luxury have been the source of much media frenzy, its relationship with beauty has, in comparison, been relatively low key. Beauty companies from L’Oréal to Unilever have upped their game through the launch of try-on apps and an extensive social media presence. However, the potential of technology in beauty is still at a nascent stage. As consumers embrace technology in their everyday lives, notably through the increasing use of smartphones, the boundaries between the virtual and real world become increasingly blurred. Virtual wallets, virtual assistants, virtual try-on apps and even virtual currencies like Bitcoin are signs of what is about to come. Now, wearable technology is becoming more commercially available and beauty companies can no longer afford to be on the side-lines. Beauty companies will start to put technology at the centre of their core strategy, making it an intrinsic part of the product.

The Old Spice Factor

Fernando-CruzAnalyst Insight by Fernando Cruz - Research Analyst

In an effort to further boost its growth in men’s grooming, Procter & Gamble is looking to capitalise on opportunities in Latin America through its brand Old Spice. However, the image the brand is creating appears to be out of sync with current trends in how men perceive grooming in the region. Men’s shaving is only expected to record annual growth of 2% over the next five years, while men’s skin care is set to increase by a 5% annual rate in the same period. For example, the image from an Old Spice commercial shows a strong guy, with more muscle than most men, screaming to the screen. He punches other men, bombs explode. And above all, he yells. It is apparent he is rejecting bad smells, but he declares something more important than that: You only need the product he is holding with his right hand to smell good.

However, the issue is that the consumer trend is evolving away from such an image of macho men, and men in the region are increasingly seen to purchase a wider array of grooming products - a phenomenon that could be described as a growing feminisation of the Latin American man. So by portraying such an image, is Old Spice trying to achieve something different to distinguish itself from its competitors and will it work for the brand?
