Lakmé Venturing into Premium Color Cosmetics in India


With Ina Dawer, Senior Research Analyst

Lakmé, a brand of colour cosmetics in India owned by Hindustan Unilever is releasing new upscale products at premium prices in order to compete with brands such as L’Oreal Paris. These products, created to specifically target urban women who prefer premium cosmetics, are also an attempt to compensate for slow volume growth of Hindustan Unilever’s other brands such as Fair & Lovely and Clinic Plus. If these premium products are a success, Unilever may the same strategy in other areas of its portfolio such as skin care.

Breakthrough Innovations and Emerging Markets Give Hair Care a Boost

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

View Oru Mohiuddin's profile on LinkedIn

Hair care globally experienced a slight slowdown in 2013, with growth weakening from 5.5% in 2012 to 4.9%, in line with the decelerated pace of growth in the overall beauty industry. However, hair care remained comparatively more robust than skin care and colour cosmetics, which posted even stronger slowdowns. A surge in innovation has helped hair care to better withstand current market challenges.

Innovation has the Greatest Impact in Conditioners

Thanks to certain breakthrough innovations, hair care has been gradually evolving from a regular personal care staple to include more sophisticated products targeting specific hair care issues. The conditioners category has benefited significantly from these innovations, seeing the introduction of leave-in conditioners on a wider scale in various types of formats, including serums and masks. Hair oil is now moving beyond conditioners to colourants. Garnier’s hair colourant brand Olia is based on an ‘Oil Delivery System’, using oil for the penetration of pigments rather than ammonia, which is believed to have a harsher effect on hair. These novelties helped colourants to record the second strongest growth in percentage terms, after conditioners, at a little over 30%. In absolute terms, however, it is shampoos which led growth in hair care. While shampoos benefited from innovations, growth was mainly driven by increasing penetration in emerging markets. Nearly 90% of the global growth in shampoos in 2013 derived from emerging markets.

Emerging and Frontier Markets Drive Global Hair Care Growth

Oru_Mohiuddin (1)With Oru Mohiuddin, Senior Analyst - Home and Personal Care, Euromonitor International

View Oru Mohiuddin's profile on LinkedIn

The hair care category weakened from 5.5 percent in 2012 to 4.9 percent in 2013 but still performed better than other categories in beauty and personal care such as skin care and colour cosmetics. This resistance to market challenges is due to hair care’s increasing penetration of emerging markets such as China, Brazil and India and new frontier markets such as Turkey, Indonesia and Iran. Brazil remains the most dynamic market, accounting for 20 percent of global hair care growth in 2013 due to an increasing competition from local players.

Innovative Packaging Products Combine Shelf Appeal with Functionality


Shelf appeal and pack functionality are two of the main trends Euromonitor observed at interpack 2014, and some the innovative brands are combining these trends into one package. For instance, Japanese canned preserved food brand Meidi-Ya recently changed its corned beef packaging from a metal can to a plastic container. This switch helps the product stand out on the shelf due to the material used, and is easier to open than a metal can with a key. Another instance of these converging  trends is found in the Lancôme product Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Reviva-Concentrate, which is hot stampped to produce a metal look and has an innovative closure that twists to open or close the product to prevent spillage.

Opposing Strategies for Success in the Latin American and Western European Sunscreen Markets

Anaïs_MirvalAnalyst Insight by Anais Mirval - Ingredients Analyst

In 2012, the consumption of sunscreens in Asia Pacific was stronger than in Western Europe. As the Western European sun care market is not showing any signs of recovery, this situation is set to be replicated in Latin America by 2017. Despite similar consumption patterns, sunscreen manufacturers will have to adopt “opposing” strategies if they want to succeed in both markets. In Latin America, efficacy will be key and sunscreens able to provide a high SPF in sun protection will be popular. In Western Europe, sunscreen manufacturers will have to focus on non-core categories, while offering a mix of sunscreens and ingredients with additional benefits to sun protection manufacturers, particularly in Southern Europe.

Metal Aerosol Cans: A Modern Day Solution for Developing Markets

D-gWith Daniel Grimsey, Senior Research Analyst

Metal aerosol can growth in developed markets is slowing down, but emerging markets are pushing growth of the pack type globally. This strong growth in emerging markets is due to convenience, low cost and the switch towards more modern solutions in products such as air fresheners, shaving cream and insect repellant. As emerging markets continue the trend of urbanisation and rising disposable incomes, aerosol cans are expected to continue their growth.

The 10 Best-Selling Celebrity Fragrances in the US

VirginiaAnalyst Insight by Virginia Lee - Research Analyst

View Virginia Lee's profile on LinkedIn

Though celebrity fragrances remain popular with young consumers, these fragrances are becoming a smaller proportion of the total fragrances market. Celebrity fragrances comprised about 11% of the US fragrances market in 2013, down from 12% in 2012. Why are celeb scents losing their sparkle? Tweens, teens, and young adults continue to like celebrity scents as they care more about their favorite actors and singers than their parents and grandparents. However, young Americans have less disposable income to spend on discretionary items such as fragrances post-recession as unemployment remains high among youth. Products such as apparel and fragrances are also now competing with other purchases such as smartphones and apps
