Beyond the BRIC states and also Mexico, the second tier of markets includes South Africa, South Korea, Argentina, Poland, and Turkey which together account for 16% of the overall emerging markets value. Although smaller in market size, Venezuela and Argentina are expected to register soaring growth over the forecast period.
China and India present considerable opportunity simply due to their population size. But these markets are most open to manufacturers looking to sell low-cost products in large volumes. Premium products will fare better in markets with high per capita spend on personal care products such as the UAE, Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea.
In terms of consumption, Nigeria ranks second out of the 25 emerging countries assessed. Its high potential is driven by its formidable population base of 169 million, which is growing at an annual rate of 2.8%. Its rising income levels make Nigeria one of the promising markets for personal care manufacturers.
