This report solves these problems by providing integrated survey-based data on consumer trends, consumer groups and market data which show exactly the size of consumer groups, how much of the Fragrances market they account for and which consumer trends drive their behavior.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

Most Fragrances are not considered to be essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been comparatively affected. As economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.

Private label penetration less than 5% in China
European fragrances are hugely popular in China and consumers with high levels of disposable income are brand-conscious. As such private label penetration in China is low relative to other CPG categories.
Changing age structures the most important trend in the market
Changing age structures is the most important trend in the Fragrances market in China. Suppliers need to account for China’s large young population and the effects the country’s One Child policy has had in different demographic groups, particularly on the ratio of males to females in younger age groups.
The majority of fragrances in China are sold outside of large retailers
Major global retailers such as Carrefour and Walmart account for a minority share of Fragrances sold in China. It reveals that Chinese consumers prefer specialty stores for purchasing fragrances and as such suppliers should ensure strong relationships with small, independent retailers.
