Key Market Issues
- Medium frequency consumption of Nail Make-up is most common across all age groups, indicating that suppliers should aim to increase the consumption frequency of current users. Medium consumption is highest among Mid-Lifers, accounting for 45% of the age group, highlighting a large consumer base suppliers should target.
- Consumer segmentation analysis by wealth group reveals that the Better Off wealth group accounts for the largest percentage share of the Make-up market by value in Brazil, followed by the Hard Pressed wealth group. This division in the market indicates that there is a large consumer base for both mass market and aspirational products.
- The Pre-Mid-Lifers age group has the highest proportion of Heavy frequency consumers of Eye Make-up, followed by Early Young Adults and Older Young Adults. The Mid-Lifers age group has a high proportion of Medium frequency users and a relatively low number of Light frequency users, indicating that current marketing messages aimed at this age group have successfully driven a high consumption frequency.
- Although the Brazilian organized retail market is fragmented in terms of number of organized retailers operating in the country, the two largest organized retailers account for more than three-quarters of Make-up products distributed by volume. This highlights the strong bargaining power of these retailers with suppliers.
- Private label penetration is low in the Make-up market in Brazil. One reason for this is the fragmented character of the overall organized retail market, with private labels traditionally stronger in mature, concentrated retail markets.
- Indulgence and Changing age structures are two of the most important trends in the Make-up market in Brazil. These reflect Brazils large young population and growing urbanization, and indicate that suppliers should track demographic and socio-economic trends in the country in order to successfully target their products.
