Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Make-up market in France 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 Make-up 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 Make-up 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. Eye, Face, Lip, and Nail make-up 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 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 Market Issues

Analysis of the French Make-up market by age reveals that Older Consumers account for the largest share of consumption by value. This is a result of the large size of the age group and their relatively high disposable income.
Analysis of the French Make-up market by wealth group indicates that the Better Off and Moderate Income wealth groups have similar market shares. These two age groups combined constitute more than half of the total Make-up market in France, indicating strong market potential for aspirational products.
Analysis of the French Make-up market by the amount of time people have spare reveals that the busiest consumers account for the largest market shares by value. Time Poor and No Time consumer groups constitute more than two-thirds of the French Make-up market.

Key Highlights

Early Young Adults have the highest consumption of Eye Make-up in France, with two-thirds of consumers using these products. Almost 40% of the age group are Medium frequency consumers, indicating that suppliers should develop strategies to increase their consumption frequency to Heavy.
Lip Make-up is consumed most frequently by consumers in older age groups. For instance, approximately 20% of Mid-Lifers and Older Consumers are Heavy frequency users compared to6% of Older Young Adults and 7% of Pre-Mid-Lifers. This may highlight generational differences in beauty, with Lip Make-up not considered an important part of younger consumers’ beauty routines.
Private label penetration is low in the Make-up market in France. The highest penetration rate is in Eye Make-up, though this is still below 15%.
