Men's Grooming Habits in Emerging and Developed Markets

Mens-grooming-banner

When it comes to beauty and personal appearances, women report spending the most time and money perfecting their looks. Yet, over the last decade, the range of beauty and personal care (BPC) products regarded as socially acceptable for men has widened, and men are paying increasingly more attention to their personal appearances. One third of men spend more than thirty minutes a day grooming, opening up a number of opportunities for BPC companies to develop products targeted to the unique needs of this especially appearance-minded segment of men. Furthermore, as more men become interested in improving their appearance by extending their grooming habits and product usage, it will be essential for brands to create male-specific products that enable men to feel more comfortable in the beauty and personal care aisle.

Beauty Players’ Fit Response to World Cup-Stirred Opportunities

The Brazil 2014 World Cup has undoubtedly captured the attention of a truly global audience, and most fmcg players have been on the ball about capitalising on the event. Many of them have aligned their global brands to Brazilian or football-themed product launches. In the beauty and personal care industry, colour cosmetics players have been especially quick to respond, but many other product categories have adjusted their advertising campaigns to benefit from the attention of the many millions of spectators watching the games. The response to the heightened interest in Brazilian/World Cup-themed products from beauty companies has not lacked speed, volume or creativity. Although the event has created an unmissable brand-building opportunity for most players, it is not likely to have a lasting impact on category growth forecasts in beauty and personal care.

FIFA has released a number of statistics indicating the size of the global audience. On the last night of the tournament, the World Cup final game between Germany and Argentina was watched by a staggering record global audience of one billion. The opening game between Brazil and Croatia on 12 June was watched by 42.9 million people on Brazilian network TV Globo, FIFA said, making it the most watched sporting event of the year in Brazil. Another record was broken in Japan; the national team’s game against Ivory Coast was seen by 34.1 million on Japanese TV channel NHK, double the size of the audience watching its next biggest sports broadcast this year.

New Survey Results Illustrate Global Beauty and Personal Grooming Habits

250_personalAppearances-v1.1Consumers worldwide spend a considerable amount of time, effort, and money on improving their external appearance. According to our data, global sales of the skin care market totaled over US $107 billion in 2013 and the hair care market totaled US $77 billion.  We expect both industries to grow over 20% between 2014 and 2018, which fuels the argument that consumers are willing to pay for products that help them look their best.

The grooming habits and style of each consumer have a huge impact on the range of beauty and personal care products, apparel and accessories they choose to buy.  Therefore, it is important for companies and retailers in those respective industries to understand the attitudes and grooming preferences motivating customers when they visit the shopping mall, drugstore or online retailers.

Earlier this year, our Survey team polled over 6,600 consumers in over 16 different countries, asking respondents a range of questions related to their attitudes towards style and appearance, grooming habits, purchase frequency and responsibility, and approach to the buying process.   Understanding these consumer preferences and behaviours helps companies and brands better identify trends and target key consumer segments, whether determined by gender, region, or even level of effort put into external appearance.

For example, China represents the only market in which respondents favored stylish over practical clothing, according to the survey results.  Chinese online consumers are also more likely to shop at luxury boutiques than at discount stores and prefer to wear brand-name clothing and shoes. 

“Understanding consumers’ style and their beauty and personal care routines enables companies to develop enticing products that better fulfill buyers’ needs,” explains Survey Manager, Eileen Bevis, “This latest survey also helps companies and brands better understand a customer’s path to purchase, offering opportunities to create strategic marketing plans.”
