Key Market Issues
Once a market leader, the Schlecker drugstore chain filed for bankruptcy in 2012 followed by the closure of its stores across Germany, resulting in an absence of parapharmacies or drugstores from some towns across the country. Therefore, the number of Health and Beauty outlets is expected to rise, with companies targeting to fill this gap.
Aftershaves and Colognes and Post-shave Cosmetics, though are the least valuable categories in German Male Toiletries sector, are expected to witness sound growth rates during 2012-2017
The health and beauty market in Germany is fragmented in terms of competitiveness and companies' overall sales shares. Though Hypermarkets and Supermarkets lead distribution, the market is also marked by the presence of specialist national retailers.
The economic uncertainty and a tendency among consumers to cut down on expenses has led to a stronger demand for private label grooming products for men in the country. However, the overall share of private label products in Germany's Male Toiletries sector remains low, though a high penetration rate was seen in the Men's Disposable Razors and Blades category.
Pre-Shave Cosmetics registered the lowest growth rate during 2012 inspite of being the second largest category, while Men's Disposable Razors and Blades continues to be the most valuable category in German Male Toiletries market.
Older Consumers, Mid-Lifers and Pre-Mid-Lifers are the most prominent consumer groups. Consumer analysis, based on Wealth Group, reveals that Better-off men have the highest consumption share, while Time Poor male consumers have the highest consumption propensity of Male Toiletries.
Men's Disposable Razors and Blades and Aftershaves and Colognes will gain market share, while the market share of Pre-Shave Cosmetics and Post-Shave Cosmetics categories will decline between 2007 and 2017.
Manufacturers are focusing on launching innovative products that provide multiple benefits, primarily targeting the time-pressed working male population in Germany. German men are seeking Male Toiletries that meet their need for convenience, such as dry-shave alternatives, and all-in-one benefits, such as products that act as skin moisturizers, anti-irritants, help skin elasticity and freshness, or formulations with anti-aging properties all at the same time.
Disposable Razors and Blades and Pre-Shave Cosmetics accounted for almost 80% of the total number of packs used in German Male Toiletries sector in 2012, driving significant demand for Rigid Plastic and Flexible Packaging Blister Packs and Bottles. Men's Disposable Razors and Blades do not use closures, while Box outers are used in case of Aftershaves and Colognes.
The growing demand for Aftershave and Colognes in Germany will result in a parallel demand for Glass Bottle Packaging and Screw Top closures. Demand for Box outers will also increase as a result of the rising consumption of the category products
