LONDON, Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:



The UK Fragrances Market: What Consumers Use and Why?


Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the Fragrances market in the UK 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 Fragrances 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 Fragrances 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. Male Fragrances, Female Fragrances, and Unisex Fragrances 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 Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: Male Fragrances, Female Fragrances, and Unisex Fragrances.

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

Analysis of the UK Fragrances market by age reveals that Older Consumers constitute the largest share of the market by value. This is a result of the large number of Older Consumers and their relatively high disposable income. On the other hand, younger age groups such as Kids & Babies and Tweens & Early Teens constitute the lowest market share.

Early Young Adults and Older Young Adults are the most frequent consumers of Unisex Fragrances. This indicates that consumers in younger age groups are more open to trying Unisex Fragrances, whereas consumers in older age groups have developed stable consumption habits with gender-specific brands.

Analysis of the UK Fragrances market by wealth group indicates that the Better Off and Moderate Income wealth groups account for the largest shares by value, indicating strong potential for premium and aspirational products.


Key Highlights

Heavy consumption of Male Fragrances is most common across men, accounting for one-third of the market. However, almost 40% of men consume Male Fragrances at a Medium or Light frequency, indicating that suppliers should focus on increasing the consumption frequency of current users.

Female Fragrances consumption declines significantly among Older Consumers, only 5% of which are Heavy frequency consumers. Suppliers need to develop strategies to prevent the strong decline in consumption as consumers exit middle age.

Private label penetration is low in the UK Fragrances market. Penetration is highest in the Unisex Fragrances category, reaching approximately 14% of consumers, twice as high as in the Female Fragrances and Male Fragrances categories.
