Multi-Channel Strategies in Home Improvement Retailing

Home improvement retailers in France are experimenting with social media and other non-traditional channels.  For example, Leroy Merlin has launched an experimental program where consumers can share tools for free by making a reservation on Facebook and then borrowing them at the store. These initiatives are aimed at building consumer engagement and loyalty to combat showrooming trends. Watch the video for complete insights.

Gin O’clock: English Gin Breaks Away From its Core Markets

Jeremy_Cunnington0Analyst Insight by Jeremy Cunnington - Senior Alcoholic Drinks Analyst

View Jeremy Cunnington's profile on LinkedIn

Consumption of English Gin, excluding consumption in India which consists entirely of local economy brands, has been dominated by three core markets: the US; Spain; and the UK. In 2013, excluding India, these three markets accounted for 66% of global category volume sales. Additionally, these three markets were the only three to see volumes exceed six million litres in each during 2013. There are, however, signs that this is starting to change, with English Gin gaining popularity in a number of underdeveloped Western European markets.

Within the three core markets, there has been a well-established trend towards the rising popularity of super-premium and premium gins. This has not led to huge growth in the category in these markets, but rather a switch in emphasis away from standard and economy brands, such as Gordon’s and Larios, to more upmarket ones, such as Hendrick’s and Bombay Sapphire.

Luxury Goods in France: Key Trends and Industry Overview

Fflur_RobertsAnalyst Insight by Fflur Roberts - Luxury Goods Analyst

View Fflur Roberts's profile on LinkedIn

Despite France’s venerable position on the global luxury and fashion scene, the French luxury market has not escaped the country’s poor macroeconomic environment.

According to Euromonitor International’s latest research, luxury sales in France reached just under €18 billion in 2014, making it the third biggest market in the world, behind the US and Japan, but, with a regional value share of 21%, France comes out top, ahead of neighbouring Italy and the UK.

Much in line with comparable global figures, designer clothing and footwear accounts for the lion’s share of luxury value sales in France, at 46% in 2014. However, its growth is dwarfed by that of the second largest category, luxury accessories, which grew by 43% in value in the five years to 2014, making it the most dynamic category overall.

The Most International Western European Cities

Kasparas AdomaitisAnalyst Insight by Kasparas Adomaitis - Senior City Analyst

Western European cities are gradually becoming melting pots. The foreign population in most European urban areas grew strongly during 2008-2013 and in 2013 at least every seventh inhabitant in the 10 most international European cities was a foreigner. For businesses in Western Europe, growing foreign populations imply that ethnic marketing is increasingly important to successful sales growth. For politicians, it means they need to take into account the voices of discontent local citizens that fear being outnumbered by foreign nationals.

Chanel Selling Cosmetics Brand Bourjois to Coty

Coty has bid for Chanel’s masstige make-up brand, Bourjois, in an all-share deal worth about US$239 million, making Chanel a stakeholder in Coty, with a 4.2% share. Coty’s enlarged colour cosmetics portfolio, with its predominantly mass price positioning, is getting aligned for emerging market expansion, targeting a wide consumer base with relative weak spending power and strong cultural roots for colour cosmetics use.
