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

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

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

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Men's Toiletries market in the UK 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. 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 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. 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, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

There are very few Heavy consumers of Pre-shave Cosmetics among Early Young Adults, with Medium frequency consumption being the most common. This is in contrast with older age groups, where Heavy consumption is prevalent. Suppliers should consider addressing this potential target market.

Consumption of Post-shave Cosmetics is mostly Heavy or Medium, indicating that the products tend to play a habitual role in UK consumers' grooming routines.

The proportion of Heavy users of Pre-shave Cosmetics remains similar between Older Young Adults and Older Consumers, indicating that shaving habits developed when young tend to continue into old age.

Key Highlights

Consumer survey results reveal that the Men's Toiletries market is highly influenced by consumers' need for New Gender Behaviors, Better Value for Money, and Changing Life stages products.

The Men's Disposable Blades and Razors category is the most valuable market in the UK. Aftershaves and Colognes is the next largest market, followed by Post-Shave and Pre-Shave Cosmetics.

Consumer Survey results reveal that Supermarkets such as Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's, and Morrisons account for over 57% of Men's Toiletries sales in the UK.
