Coty Closes In On Acquiring Haircare Company GHD

October 16, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Coty is close to acquiring UK-based haircare products manufacturer GHD. There are no details on how much Coty plans to pay for GHD; however, according to a company that tried unsuccessfully to buy the company earlier, it is likely to be much higher than ₤400 million. Private equity firm Lion Capital put up GHD for sale earlier in 2016, with a number of cross-border merger and acquisition deals having been made following the drop in sterling's value after the UK's vote to leave the EU.

Tesco has removed dozens of Unilever brand products from its online store following a dispute between the companies over prices.

Unilever has been working to raise the prices of products it supplies to the country's big 4 supermarkets by about 10 percent, claiming it needs to recover losses caused by higher cost of imported materials. Grocers, however, are opposing Unilever's demands for higher prices, saying some of the products are actually made in the UK.

Mobile Ads Work Hand-In-Glove With TV To Increase FMCG Purchase Intent

October 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
An advertising experiment that involved the Pond’s skin cream brand has confirmed that TV ads supplemented and reinforced by mobile ads are more effective in delivering “an experiential element” that improves purchase intent. Unilever worked with InMobi and Mindshare to test the hypothesis that multi-screen ad campaigns – TV plus smartphone – would be more effective than just TV alone in moving the skin cream product. The hypothesis proved correct: the mobile ad boosted purchase intent by 50 percent and interest in the product by 15 percent when the mobile ad was seen after the TV commercial.

FMCG Marketers Are Catching On To The Power Of Facebook’s Resources

October 7, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Facebook not only offers FMCG marketers a treasure trove of online customer data, it offers targeted ad solutions and insight tools for a wide range of products. Big FMCG marketers like Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser and L'Oreal have made use of Facebook’s resources to boost sales of products like razors, condoms, and hair removal cream. Reckitt used Facebook to target Indian men with cricket-themed condom ads. Last March, Facebook worked with Nielsen on a month-long test in two Indian cities for a L'Oreal acne wash. Media ads were shown in both cities, but only one (Kolkata) saw Facebook mobile ads targeting 18- to 34-year-olds. Sales of the product in Kolkata more than doubled.

Gender-Free Fragrances Becoming Mainstream, Market Observers Say

October 3, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Gender-neutral fragrances are becoming more popular, as younger consumers continue moving away from conventional “sexist messaging” previously used by marketers. With 950 out of 1,000 new niche launches aimed at no particular gender, the growing trend owes its existence to Calvin Klein's launch of the unisex fragrance CK1 in the 1990s. Strengthened by Hollywood in the 19th and 20th centuries, marketing strategies for promoting women's and men's fragrances would be considered offensive today, according to market executives, such as perfumer Ben Krigler and PHLUR CEO and president Eric Korman. Some of the popular gender-free fragrances today include Atelier Cologne, Jo Malone London, and Ex Nihilo.

Marketers Adapt Strategies To Boost Duty-Free Perfume Sales

October 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Duty-free sales of beauty products worldwide reached $19.8 billion in 2015, with fragrance accounting for 43.6 percent of total sales, according to Generation Research. In 2014, however, overall sales were $19.3 billion, with the fragrance segment contributing 48.7 percent of total sales, and in 2013, $17.5 billion, with fragrance accounting for 50.8 percent. Factors driving the decline in fragrance’s share of total sales included a decrease in disposable income in some markets and terrorism and security concerns. In order to deal with these factors and their adverse impact on the duty-free market, many companies are marketing products aimed at consumers who continue to travel. For example, Armani/Prive created Pivoine Suzhou, a fragrance designed for Chinese consumers. Lancome launched its Miracle perfume, which is also aimed at China’s consumers.

Sales of niche and artisanal fragrances grew 22 percent in 2015, compared with the previous year, according to NPD Group. Data revealed sales of the perfumes, which sometimes come in unconventional varieties, are driven by millennials who do not want mass-market perfumes and celebrity-driven scents. Also driving growth and competition in the market is the increase in merger deals, including Revlon Inc.’s acquisition of Elizabeth Arden Inc. and Coty Inc.’s purchase of Procter & Gamble Co.’s 41 beauty brands. Premium scents have driven market growth, with sales of artisanal products and premium fragrances forecast to grow 18 percent from its current $6.6 billion by 2020, according to Euromonitor International.
