The Russian Haircare Market: What Consumers Use and Why?

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

The Russian Haircare Market: What Consumers Use and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Haircare market in Russia 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 Haircare 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 Haircare 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. Conditioner, Hair Colorants, Perms & Relaxers, Shampoo, and Styling Agents are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been comparatively 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 behaviour 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 behaviours.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Conditioner, Hair Colorants, Perms & Relaxers, Shampoo, and Styling Agents.

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

The Haircare market is dominated by women, with a 69% share of the market by value, despite accounting for 54% of the population.

Consumption of Perms & Relaxers is low across every age group. Consumption is highest among Early Young Adults, where Medium frequency consumption is the most common. Only 7% of Early Young Adults consume Perms & Relaxers at a heavy frequency and 9% at a Light frequency.

Consumption of Styling Agents peaks among Pre-Mid-Lifers; however, this is due to a relatively high number of Light frequency users. Tweens & Early Teens are the most important age group in the market, containing the highest proportion of Heavy frequency users and the second-highest proportion of Medium frequency users.

Key Highlights

Private label penetration is low in Russia, with Shampoo, the best performing private label product category, attaining penetration of less than 7%. One reason for this is the fragmented Russian organized retail industry, with private labels traditionally more successful in mature, concentrated retail environments.

Shampoo accounts for more than 40% of the Haircare market by value terms, followed by Hair Colorants and Conditioner. Perms &Relaxers is the smallest market segment with less than a 10% value share.

The Russian organized retail market for Haircare is highly fragmented, with no single retailer holding a market share exceeding 10%. However, the Russian organized retail market is expected to concentrate in the next few years, increasing the market shares of individual retailers.
