UK Health and Beauty: grocers widening their lead as sector consolidates

The UK's grocery retailers are widening their lead in yet another non-food market; health and beauty. In 2005 health and beauty expenditure through grocers was GBP800 million more than through specialists. According to Verdict Research, over the next five years grocers will gain a 50% share of the total health and beauty market, a fact the specialists should be taking seriously.

The Body Shop: L'Oreal sale rumors highlight the investment needed to bring life into a tired brand

The Body Shop has struggled over the past five years, with Verdict expecting its share of the health & beauty market to drop from 1.2% in 2007 to 0.9% in 2012. Continuing growth means opportunities remain in the market, but with an outdated brand and unexciting products The Body Shop has work to do.

Superdrug: striving for cut-price brand appeal

UK health & beauty retailer Superdrug is to cut prices on famous brand cosmetics as part of a GBP250,000 Mother's Day price war. The move, which will see skincare products by Clarins, Clinique, and Elizabeth Arden given a discount of up to 60%, has the potential to attract market leader Boots' older, more affluent customers.

Superdrug: paying for loyalty

Superdrug will cut the cost of one health and beauty "essential" each weekend in the lead up to Christmas, according to the Daily Mirror. However, the offers are more likely to improve loyalty from existing customers than create a long term threat to rivals, including grocers and the merged Alliance Boots.

Superdrug should emphasize quality when marketing new B range

Superdrug's premium skincare and makeup brand, B, is pitched as offering premium products with simplified purchasing and accessible prices. Effective communication of its products' impressive test results should boost sales, but B's affiliation to Superdrug, a retailer associated with value ranges, means that non-Superdrug shoppers who want a premium beauty experience will need some convincing.

Retail locations: out-of-town remains the prime location for retail growth

Over the last 10 years, out-of-town has consistently outperformed both town center and neighborhood, with average annual growth of 2.5% between 2004 and 2009, compared with 1.4% for neighborhood and 0.2% in town centers. Verdict expects out-of-town to continue to outperform due to food & grocery reliance, its relevance as a click & collect point, and the entrance of new retailers to the sector.
