An Overview of the Germany Beauty and Personal Care Industry

The German BPC retail market is slowly recovering after several challenging years due to the pandemic. The cost of living crisis has encouraged the ‘lipstick effect’, benefitting retailers as German consumers seek small ways to treat themselves.

While the ‘lipstick effect’ continues to encourage the purchase of small beauty treats, consumer confidence is slowly recovering, however, there is a risk of downtrading among consumers with tight budgets.

German BPC Retail Market: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Consumer Spending Behaviour: Germans are savvy spenders when it comes to beauty and personal care products and budget-friendly options. 64% of German shoppers think value own label is as effective as premium own label, meaning discounters and budget own-label options can benefit, whereas high-end retailers must prove their worth. Transparent pricing or high-end experiences can help them stand out.
  • Sustainability in the BPC Industry Germany: Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword, but a consumer expectation. This is reflected in BPC retailers’ strategies and goals. Sustainability is at the forefront of product development and retailing concepts, driven by consumer expectations and government regulations. Consumers also want transparency around ‘green’ issues. The Green Claims Directive responds to this desire for transparency and aims to regulate sustainability claims to tackle greenwashing and will impact how BPC products are marketed to and perceived by consumers.
  • German BPC Retail Market Channels: Although more people are shopping online now compared to previous years, offline stores remain the key channel for most, with 85% of Germans shopping for BPC products in store. A reason for that is that physical shops offer the ability to test and discover new products. Some retailers are making in-store shopping even more convenient and welcoming by facilitating one-stop shops and an inclusive environment.

German BPC Retail Market Forecast

  • The future is digital, and technology is being leveraged to enhance the customer experience in store and online, with advances in generative AI enabling improved virtual testing. This will result in an evermore seamless transition between in-store and online experiences.
