Vietnam's Cosmetics Market One Of World's Fastest Growing

October 13, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Vietnam's cosmetics market is growing 30 percent per year for the past few years, according to ASEAN Cosmetic Association special adviser and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Asia Pacific senior director Le Chau Giang. She described the country as a fragmented market, due to differences in income and cultural heritage among the Vietnamese people. While leading international brands can provide products covering a wide range of prices, local brands can focus on addressing specific needs of the market, she added. Climate also plays a part in the cosmetics market, with consumers in the colder North buying more hydrating moisturizers, while southern consumers prefer matte products.

Russia's Standoff With West Hits Major Beauty Companies' 2014 Performance

October 3, 2014: 12:00 AM EST

Russia's conflict with the West over its actions in Ukraine is expected to adversely affect the revenue performance of several beauty and personal care companies in 2014. Companies with major presence in Russia, such as L'Oreal, Unilever, and Oriflame, revealed plans to reduce the impact of the market instability on their operations; however, analysts believe the overall effects of the situation are beyond their control. Russia accounts for only 3 percent of global beauty sales of both L'Oreal and Unilever. Oriflame, however, depends more on the market, which contributed almost 30 percent of the company's revenue in 2013. Market uncertainties are also expected to dampen demand for skin and hair care products, prompting Oriflame to reconsider its plan to open a second factory in Russia. Unilever also put on hold its plan to double production capacity in the country.

Indonesia, with its huge population, 5.6 percent annual GDP growth rate, and a fast-growing middle class, is a most important market for cosmetics companies.

Demand for cosmetics is growing across the country, with the segment posting double-digit growth rate in 2013. Market penetration stands at 81 percent, or about 40.3 million households, with growth in rural areas outpacing those in urban markets.

Oriflame landed on the 20th spot in the Beauty Packaging magazine's Top 20 Global Beauty Companies for 2013.

Sales growth in other markets, however, helped offset the negative trend. Strong sales growth was reported in Africa and Turkey markets, while sales in Latin America grew 15 percent and Asia jumped more than 10 percent, driven by Indonesia, India, and Pakistan.
