The Australian Cosmetic and Toiletry Retailing industry is involved in the sale of thousands of cosmetic and toiletry brands. It has grown modestly over the past decade, boosted by healthy household consumption expenditure on cosmetics, perfumes, soap products and other toiletries. At the same time however, its performance is increasingly impacted by intensifying competitive pressures, both within the industry itself as well as from an ever-growing number of external competitors.
In 2012-13, the industry is expected to post growth of 2.3%. This will come as growth in real disposable incomes recovers in line with stronger economic growth.
Retailers in this industry sell cosmetics, perfumes, toiletries and personal grooming products. Industry retailers include specialty cosmetics stores, perfume and fragrance stores and beauty supply stores.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
