Beauty Retailing - France - January 2016

Beauty Retailing – Europe provides detailed coverage of the beauty retail sectors in five Western European markets: the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The data in its entirety is contained in the single copy five-country report, which gives a full overview of beauty retailing in these markets. Single country reports are also available for the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

“Beauty retailing in France is a mature and competitive sector, with market leader Sephora capturing almost a quarter of specialist retailers ‘sales. The established retailers are having to respond to the competition coming from small footprint, low priced make-up formats such as Kiko Milano, which are tapping into demand for competitive prices and quality own label, particularly amongst the crucial younger age groups. Online is relatively underdeveloped, but growing, with Sephora in particular continuing to innovate with its digital integrated stores.”

– Natalie Macmillan, Senior European Analyst
