An Overview of the Deodorant Market in Germany

The deodorant market in Germany is in recovery from a dip caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, deodorants now face new challenges due to the cost of living crisis, which is impacting the category, despite deodorants being a staple in consumers’ routines with 92% of Germans using it.

  • Deodorant Market Size Germany: In 2023, the deodorant market size Germany was measured at €834.2m. According to Mintel’s Germany deodorant market analysis, double-digit growth is expected long-term.

Germany Deodorant Market Research: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Impact of Inflation on Deodorant in Germany: Because deodorants remain a staple in consumers’ routines and due to the lower price positioning of deodorants, German consumers tend to trade down rather than drop out of the category. Ongoing financial pressure will be the cause of mindful spending and savvy shopping habits to get maximum value for money.
  • Sustainability & The Deodorant Market in Germany: Roll-ons and aerosols are the most popular types of deodorants, however, the latter are perceived as bad for the environment. Therefore, interest in natural deodorants and eco-friendly options is set to rise significantly beyond the 41% of Germans who would already consider using them. Brands can tap into this by offering cost-effective natural deodorant options. To turn more people into users, brands will have to overcome barriers like price and availability.
  • The Premiumisation of Deodorant in Germany: In the upper end of the market, and once consumer confidence increases overall, brands have opportunities to premiumise their products. 61% of users are interested in deodorant that can be used in place of fragrance – premium brands can leverage this by expanding their fragrance lines into deodorants through personalisation and sophisticated scents.

Deodorant in Germany – Market Forecast

  • As summers become hotter due to global warming, the usage of deodorants and antiperspirants will increase and won’t only be limited to the underarm area. Brands can launch innovative whole-body deodorants to tackle this.
