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.

Which Countries Have the Highest-Spending Middle Class Households?


To consumer goods businesses, middle class households are highly important because they drive consumer spending, especially spending on discretionary items (that is, all items except food, non-alcoholic drinks and housing). Although the middle class in emerging markets is celebrated for its rapid expansion, their purchasing power remains low. In 2013, a middle class household spent on average US$6,095 in China and US$3,611 in India, compared to US$83,959 in Australia and US$72,994 in the USA.

With the very real chance of Scotland voting to leave the United Kingdom and go it alone later this month, how will an independent Scotland measure up? Home to only 7% of UK businesses it will be small – but will it be nimble? Its recent economic growth has not been extraordinary.

Population with Higher Education: Which Countries Have the Highest Rates?

Population with higher education

The world’s population with higher education has grown from 12.1% of the global adult population aged 15+ in 2008 to 13.3% in 2013. This is translating into higher incomes and a swell in numbers of the top earning socio economic groups. Canada had the world’s highest percentage of its population aged 15+ with higher education at 36.0% of its total population in 2013 due to government prioritisation of higher education. At the other end of the scale is Kenya, with just 2.4% in the same year.

View Sarah Boumphrey's profile on LinkedIn


How would an independent Scotland look, in comparison with a UK without Scotland? In terms of total consumer market size, the UK without Scotland would not see a drop in its position in global rankings. An independent Scotland would become the world’s 45th largest consumer market, finding itself placed in-between Finland and Peru. In terms of average household spend, the average household in the UK without Scotland would be higher than its Scottish equivalent in all categories with the exception of alcoholic drinks and tobacco, and clothing and footwear.

China Dominates Boom in Emerging Market Patent Grants

Patent Trends in Emerging Markets

The increasing prioritisation of research and development in emerging markets is resulting in a sharp growth in the number of patents being registered among them. China had by far the highest number of patents granted at its national patent office of emerging markets at just under 257,000 in 2013, representing 72.4% of total developing market patent grants. Patents enable countries to benefit exclusively from their research and gain a competitive advantage over others.

Is Global Grocery Retailing Getting More Concentrated?

Global Grogery Retailing

While the move towards more concentration in grocery retailing is apparent in most markets, either developed or emerging countries, this trend cannot be seen at a global level. This reflects that the largest retailers, notably the top three global players, remain highly dependent on mature, developed markets, so that their sales growth lags behind that of local players in emerging markets. The saturation of large store formats may undermine expansion prospects for some of the largest players.
