Consumers in the Asia-Pacific Region Gear Up for 2014 Festive Season


This Christmas, consumers in different parts of the Asia-Pacific region are not sharing the same level of optimism. While some are likely to spend big on properties and online shopping, there are many who are facing the reality of an economy that is losing steam.

Key trends 

  • Spending curbed by the declining dollar; 
  • Facing the reality post-celebration; 
  • Buying a better life for the family; 
  • Who needs Christmas in order to go shopping?

Analyst Pulse: Trends in Mobile Travel Bookings



Hassle-Free Travel Arrangements

Smartphones often serve as ‘digital assistants’, managing schedules, booking reservations and otherwise assisting with day-to-day plans. In theory, smartphones should play a similar role in travel planning. But do consumers actually use mobile technology to arrange travel logistics? If not, what is preventing them from doing so? To further explore this topic, Euromonitor turned to its global network of analysts in over 80 countries, uncovering the trends they see among consumers in their local area.

Most Use Computers Rather than Mobiles to Book Travel

Mobile technology may be proliferating across the globe, but laptops and desktops are still the go-to channel for booking travel, especially when it comes to flights and hotels. In both cases, well over 90% of analysts report that consumers in their country typically use a computer to make reservations. By contrast, slightly over 20% agree that smartphone apps or mobile websites via smartphones are mainstream booking methods. Most consumers also rely on a laptop or desktop to book a rental car, though booking in person is also a common option for many. In-person reservations are even more popular when it comes to arranging activities at a destination. Meanwhile, one third of analysts report that consumers in their country book hotels and rental cars over the phone - evidence that hearing a human voice remains important to many consumers.

Using Brand Loyalty to Tailor Product Offerings in Beauty and Personal Care


Investigating consumer's brand loyalty provides insight on how a company can tailor offerings to the needs of specific buyers. For example, Euromonitor International's recent survey on apparel, beauty and grooming found that in facial care, 50 percent of consumers stick to one trusted brand but in nail polish 55 percent of consumers switch between brands on a regular basis. Looking at a brand's market performance highlights these results. For example in 2008-2013, skin care brand L'Oréal Paris expanded its market value share by 50 basis points while L'Oréal's Maybelline line remained flat over the same period.

Men's Grooming Habits in Emerging and Developed Markets


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.

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.”
