Gender Influences Fragrances Prospects in Emerging Markets


Women’s fragrances have traditionally ruled the market ahead of men’s, including in terms of product availability. 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

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.

The Relationship Between Fashion and Beauty

Fashion brands are increasingly interested in expanding their beauty offerings beyond fragrances in an effort to both provide a more accessible entry price point for consumers reluctant to spend on luxury apparel and accessories and to expand market share through additional offerings in established markets. While some brands have been successful with this approach, others have seen their beauty offerings fall by the wayside.

The Impact of Russia’s Sanctions on Global Beauty Players

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

View Ildiko Szalai's profile on LinkedIn

Thus far, Russia has not introduced direct sanctions against any multinational beauty players or their products, but the ongoing tense geo-political situation in Russia and the Ukraine is expected to negatively impact a number of companies’ performances in 2014 and beyond. Category growth prospects are also expected to be dented in the short-to-medium-term future in Eastern Europe’s largest and third-largest markets, Russia and the Ukraine, respectively. Companies with significant operations in Russia, such as L’Oréal, Unilever and Oriflame, have already announced plans to mitigate the unstable environment; however, the full impact of the situation is largely out of their control.

Brazil has the potential to grow in Premium Beauty and Personal Care

During my presentation about what we can expect from the premium market of beauty and personal care, I pointed out some factors that show the existing growth potential for the market in Brazil. The increase in credit to consumers, primarily through increased issuance of credit cards, has driven the premium market, since now many consumers can access and pay in installments to purchase premium beauty and personal care products, which were previously inaccessible. Another factor that contributes to the expansion of consumption of premium beauty products and personal care is linked to the fact that many new brands have recently entered the country, offering a wider range of products to consumers. Brands like Urban Decay, Benefit, Bare Minerals, among others, are now available to any consumer in Brazil, either through internet retailing or brick and mortar stores.
