Consumer Health in 2015 - Trends and Prospects for a Healthier World

Monica feldmanAnalyst Insight by Monica Feldman - Head of Consumer Health Research

View Monica Feldman's profile on LinkedIn

The year 2014 set up the stage for new market dynamics that will influence consumer health in 2015. Our newest preliminary findings for the full year 2014 will be formally published on 19 January 2015. In the meantime, we provide a snapshot preview of how Euromonitor International compares its previous estimates with our most recent research. Overall, the industry grew at a healthy pace of 2.4% in constant terms in 2014 from 2013 (5.6% current/nominal terms) at fixed exchange rates. Surprisingly, this growth is more than one percentage point lower from our previous estimates. The year 2014 brought some growth difficulties in the United States, the largest consumer health market accounting for an estimated 28% of global retail value in 2013. Tweet-ThisA weaker than usual cold/flu and allergy seasons earlier in the year dampened the high prospects of sales. At the same time US consumers shied a bit away from their high consumption of vitamins and dietary supplements in favour of functional/fortified food and beverages, and fresh healthy foods in general. The new global estimates of growth seem a little bit lower due to a slowing down in the economies of Brazil, China and Russia, and also to the fact that the US$ dollar gained strength in the second half of 2014 – Euromonitor International typically reports figures in US$. This is not to say that consumer health is no longer a bright spot since the industry continues to grow at a healthy pace. Rather this is a wake-up call for the industry to work on priorities, focus on relevant therapies, manage competitive threats, and selectively invest in geographies that will lead to the next stage of growth.

Marks & Spencer’s Christmas 2014 Trading Results: Yet More Bad News

Philip BentonAnalyst Insight by Philip Benton - Retailing Analyst

View Philip Benton's profile on LinkedIn

The 2014 Christmas trading results for Marks & Spencer were more disappointing than anticipated, with general merchandise sales falling 5.8% in Q3 (analysts predicted a 3% fall). Although M&S have consistently performed well in food as sales rose 2.8%, their UK performance (1.1% like-for-like decline) is not reflective of the UK retail environment. M&S have struggled to compete with the robust omni-channel strategies of Next and John Lewis, with the latter in particular having posted an impressive state of results thanks to the enormous success of their ‘click and collect’ policy which accounted for over half of its online sales. Marks &Spencer’s failure to utilise its new hi-tech distribution centre in Castle Donington has had disastrous effects with the retailer having to pull the ‘next day delivery’ service before Christmas and many consumers having to wait up to two weeks for deliveries. Word quickly spread on social media and consumers seem to have lost confidence in M&S’ ability to deliver online purchases quickly and it is highly doubtful the retailer will be able to turnaround its dwindling performance in Q4.

The Rise of Social E-Beauty

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

November is arguably the most important month of the year for internet retailers and brands alike. There is “singles day” in China, which reportedly generated US$9 billion in sales this year, and, of course, the shopping weekend mayhem that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday at the end of the month. Despite Black Friday and Cyber Monday principally being a US phenomenon, with revenues reported at US$1.3 billion this year, they have been expanding into Europe and, specifically, the UK, which has the highest penetration for beauty e-commerce among mature markets at 9.1% in Tweet-This2013, while the global average remains below 5%.

However, the phenomenal rise of social media platforms that are hoping to turn their popularity into a commercial opportunity means that they are looking at the beauty industry as a good entry point for social commerce.
