Latino consumers have an outsized impact on the market for HBC products in the United States. Over the past decade, spending by Latino consumers on personal care products grew more than 40%, nearly three times faster than it increased among non-Latino consumers. By 2015 Latinos will make up 20% of 18- to 49-year-olds, an age group critically important to HBC marketers, and will account for a growing share of consumers of HBC products in the future.
Packaged Facts The Latino Health and Beauty Care Shopper provides an in-depth analysis of the grooming and personal care habits of Latinas and Latino men. The report provides crucial insights into the HBC product preferences and brand choices of Latinas and Latino men to enable marketers of HBC products to refine their marketing approaches to this increasingly important consumer segment. For example, compared to women on average, Latinas are significantly more likely to use perfume, mascara and facial cleansing cream. Latino men are much more likely than men on average to use cologne or after shave, skin care products and professional personal care services such as pedicures and massages.
The report opens with a presentation of topline findings, including an overview of which national HBC brands perform best among Latino consumers. The next chapter analyzes current spending and projects total spending by Latinos on personal care products through 2016. The report continues with chapters on Latinas and their usage of cosmetics, skin care products, fragrances and personal care products such as deodorants. Another chapter provides in-depth analysis of usage patterns among Latino men for skin care and shaving products and for personal care products. The report concludes with chapters on oral hygiene habits and products and household usage of baby products and bath and shower products. Each chapter analyzes the volume and type of products used by Latinos and assesses the comparative success of major national HBC brands among Latino shoppers.
