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

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

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

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Men's Toiletries market in the US 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

While overall consumption of Pre-shave Cosmetics tends to decline as consumers get older, consumption frequency increases, with growing numbers of Heavy users. However, the number of Heavy users remains relatively low, indicating that suppliers need to develop strategies to increase users' consumption frequency.

Almost a quarter of Pre-Mid-Lifers are Heavy frequency consumers of Post-shave Cosmetics and approximately a third are Medium frequency consumers. This indicates that Post-shave Cosmetics play a habitual role in this age group's grooming routine.

While similar levels of Older Young Adults and Pre-Mid-Lifers consume Aftershaves and Colognes, Heavy frequency consumption is higher among Pre-Mid-Lifers. One reason for this is their greater disposable income.

Key Highlights

Market valuation reveals that the US men's toiletries market is dominated by Disposable Razors and Blades, which account for 70% of the market by value. This product category is followed by Aftershaves and Colognes and Pre-shave Cosmetics.

Brand data analysis reveals that, in volume terms, private labels have less than a 10% share of the men's toiletries market in the US. Private label presence is highest for Post-shave Cosmetics and lowest for Aftershaves and Colognes.

Increasing interest in grooming among men is the most important trend in the US Aftershaves and Colognes market. This bodes well for the market, which should increase in size, though consumers may begin demanding a wider breadth of products, threatening the market shares of established brands.
