The U.S. Market for Men's Grooming Products: Putting a New Face on Men's Personal Care Products, 3rd Edition

306 Pages Packaged Facts January 01, 2004 SKU: LA904609
Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

For at least a decade the men’s personal care market has defied all predictions of robust growth, but the stage may be set for a better performance. A high level of new product activity—to the tune of approximately 1,000 new products during the 1999-2003 period—includes heavily promoted, all-new brands from companies like Unilever (AXE) and L'Oréal (LancĂ´me Homme, gearing up for a U.S. debut in 2004) as well as expanded or repositioned brands from the likes of Beiersdorf (Nivea for Men), Procter & Gamble (Old Spice Red Zone), and Colgate-Palmolive (Speed Stick 24/7). At the same time, a key new demographic for these products is coming of age in single young men age 12-24, who are much more likely than previous generations to buy—and be heavier users of—grooming products for men. Add media hits like the grooming and personal care focused Queer Eye for the Straight Guy to the publicity mix, along with the well-groomed “metrosexual” urban male contingent, and it may realistically be deduced that things are finally looking for men’s toiletries—although “getting the girl” is still the most powerful product sell.

Packaged Facts has been tracking the U.S. market for men’s grooming product longer and in greater depth than any other publisher of market research reports, and this report synthesizes and expands upon nearly two decades of expertise and reporting from a uniquely U.S. perspective, while also taking into account important European marketing and new product trends. The report covers a breadth of products across six major categories—shaving products (including lotions, creams, soaps, foams, gels, aftershave, preshave, razors/replacement blades, and electric shavers); fragrance products (including body splashes and sprays); deodorant products (including the new hybrid deodorant/body sprays); haircare products (including haircoloring, styling, and hair-growth products); skincare products (including facial and body moisturizers, facial cleansers, facial scrubs and masks, suncare products, lip balm, talc, and depilatories); and bath and shower products (including body washes and scrubs, bath additives, after-bath products, and specialty bar soaps).

Report Methodology
The information in The U.S. Market for Men’s Grooming Products: Putting a New Face on Men's Personal Care Productsis based on both primary and secondary research. Primary research involved on-site examination of the retail milieu, interviews with marketing, public relations and industry analysts within the personal care market and consultants to the industry. Secondary research entailed data-gathering from relevant trade, business, and government sources, including company literature. Packaged Facts has derived mass merchandiser sales figures from Information Resources, Inc. (IRI) InfoScan sales-tracking data.

Pegging 2003 sales at $5 billion and forecasting sales of at least $6 billion by 2008, the report tracks sales for the overall retail universe (mass-market, department store, specialty store, and direct), quantifying mass-market sales to the marketer/brand share level via the most current IRI data available.
