LONDON, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The Chinese Men's Toiletries Market: What Consumers Use and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Men's Toiletries market in China from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as retailer choices in organized sector. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Men's Toiletries market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Men's Toiletries market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As consumer confidence increases proportionally to economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the organized retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. While Men's Disposable Razors and Blades may be deemed essential items, Pre-shave Cosmetics, Post-shave Cosmetics, and Aftershaves and Colognes may not, and therefore consumption patterns have been affected. However, as economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets – making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Aftershaves and Colognes, Men's Disposable Razors and Blades, Post-shave Cosmetics, and Pre-shave Cosmetics.

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Unique retailer choice data at the product category level in organized sector, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

Consumer frequency analysis reveals that only 41% of Older Consumers use Aftershaves and Colognes. This indicates weak marketing efforts on the part of manufacturers and a reduced awareness of Aftershaves and Cologne products among this demographic.

The most frequent consumption of Post-shave Cosmetics is by Older Young Adults, with Early Young Adults and Pre-Mid-Lifers also recording significant consumption levels. This indicates that Post-shave Cosmetics currently appeal the most to younger consumers and suppliers may struggle to sell their products to consumers in older age groups.

Consumption of Pre-shave Cosmetics is more common among Older Young Adults and Pre-Mid-Lifers, with approximately four-fifths of users consuming these products. Medium frequency consumption is the most common, indicating that suppliers should consider strategies to ensure that their products are used every time a consumer shaves, rather than just occasionally.

Key Highlights

Men's Disposable Razors and Blades have the highest private label penetration in the Men's Toiletries market in China, with approximately 16% of consumers using private label products. However, private label penetration in other Men's Toiletries categories is considerably low, just 10% in Aftershaves & Colognes.

Men's Disposable Razors and Blades are the largest product category by value with 57% penetration in the market, followed by Pre-shave Cosmetics. Post-Shave Cosmetics – Men's was the smallest market by value, accounting for only approximately 1.5%.

The Changing age structures trend affects the most consumers in the Chinese Men's Toiletries market. Suppliers need to account for China's large young population and the effects the country's One Child policy has had in different demographic groups, particularly on the ratio of males to females in younger age groups.
