Opportunities and Relationships Between Personal Accessories and Beauty and Personal Care

Despite Black Friday and Cyber Monday principally being a US phenomenon, with revenues reported at US$1.3 billion this year, they have been expanding into Europe and, specifically, the UK, which has the highest penetration for beauty e-commerce among mature markets at 9.1% in Tweet-This2013, while the global average remains below 5%.

However, the phenomenal rise of social media platforms that are hoping to turn their popularity into a commercial opportunity means that they are looking at the beauty industry as a good entry point for social commerce.

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.
