Low-Cost Sophistication Shapes Fragrance Trends in Latin America

Anaïs_MirvalAnalyst Insight by Anais Mirval - Ingredients Analyst

Along with incomes, social aspirations are growing in Latin America. Consumers are becoming more concerned about their image. And, of course, they want that image to be at its best according to their financial resources. Thus, demand for sophisticated products is increasing.

In order to stop consumers from trading up and switching brands, manufacturers of hair care and deodorants are reformulating or expanding their product ranges to incorporate “luxury-feel” fragrances. With hair care and deodorants becoming the main beneficiaries of consumption, fragrance manufacturers should increasingly focus on these customers and boost demand by offering low-cost complex scent blends.

Top Five Beauty Trends in 2014

The beauty industry slowed moderately in 2013, growing by 5% compared to 6% in 2012, due to a slowdown in emerging markets, specifically China and Brazil, as well as in innovation hub South Korea, a lustreless performance which was bad news to premium players. Latin America and Middle East and Africa remained the only regions growing by double digits, despite issues like high inflation, taxation and unstable political climates hindering prospects in many markets within the regions.

Multi-Benefit Becomes Universal

The most defining trend in 2014 will continue to be cross-category alignment, as consumers have become even more accustomed to paying for convenience as well as trying novel products and services. The vast information available, especially in the form of online reviews, has helped minimise the risk of trying new offerings for consumers. BB/CC creams’ robust progression is a testament to how the convenience and novelty that these hybrid products provide has been a successful recipe for beauty companies.

Air Cushions Taking the Color Cosmetics Market in Korea by Storm

 

The Air Cushion is a liquid foundation soaked in a sponge featuring a makeup base, sun protection and skin moisturizer all in one. Originally developed by Iope, the product has taken the cosmetics world in South Korea by storm, driving the sales value of color cosmetics up by 11 percent in 2013. Air Cushion products sit light on the skin, which is especially important in the hot Korean sun. Other companies such as LG Household and Healthcare are developing their own air cushion products to capitalize on the trend, and Iope recently launched a men’s version of the product catering to the fast growing men’s cosmetics market. As the trend grows, Euromonitor expects the product to start reaching overseas into Singapore and Hong Kong.

Distribution sélective : Kiko et Sephora tirent leur épingle du jeu

Les spécialistes de la distribution des produits de beauté en France adoptent des stratégies variées pour attirer des consommateurs traditionnellement attachés à des notions de conseils et services sur mesure. Des magasins tels que Kiko, qui est apparu sur le marché français en 2010, utilisent des couleurs vives de la musique et surtout le libre-service pour pousser leurs ventes. D’autres chaines, notamment Sephora, tirent parti de leur ventes en ligne pour forer une communauté dans laquelle les utilisateurs peuvent évaluer les produits et lire les avis des consommateurs. Le circuit de la distribution sélective des produits de beauté va rester très compétitif, et seuls les acteurs qui peuvent adapter leur offre à une audience ciblée pourront survivre.

Strong Competition for Beauty Specialist Retailers in France

Beauty specialist retailers in France are taking different approaches to a consumer segment that historically relies on consultations and one-on-one services. Stores such as Kiko, which entered the French market in 2010, are using bright colors, music and most importantly self-service to drive sales. Other stores such as Sephora are leveraging their online presence to grow a community where users can rate products and read reviews. Competition in beauty specialist retailers in France will remain strong, and only stores that can tailor their product mixes to the correct audience will survive.

Growth of Active Ingredients Outside of Core Categories

Growth of Active Ingredients Outside of Core Categories in Beauty and Skin Care

Download as pdf

As consumers continue to look for ways to save time and money, more product manufacturers are trying to cater for these needs. This has resulted in an array of one-size-fits-all products in categories, from colour cosmetics with BB creams to the reaction of sun care induced by skin care cannibalisation. The multi-functionality trend will keep pushing consumption of active skin care ingredients, outside of their core categories.

Major Trends Driving the Beauty and Personal Care Industry for 2014

There are several key trends driving the beauty and personal care market in 2014. First is the need for multi-functionality as consumers no longer settle for a two or three-in-one product. All-in-one products are becoming mainstream and are expected in almost every beauty segment. Secondly, consumer preoccupation with image and how they are perceived by others is another important trend somewhat attributed to the ‘selfie,” a buzzword for a photo taken of one’s self and uploaded to social media. This concern for one’s self-image means beauty companies will have to tailor to specific consumer needs with personalized and solution-based products.
