Diversity in BPC Industry: Current Market Landscape

Germany is an ageing society and according to Mintel’s diversity in German cosmetics industry research, older shoppers and those with visual and mobility impairments will see the biggest growth in representation, and will see more products tailored to their needs. Many beauty brands are still choosing to market to younger consumers, however, the silver economy provides an untapped opportunity in the German cosmetics market.

In recent years, legislative changes pertaining to the rights of queer and gendernonconforming citizens have had a big impact on society, and the diverse German cosmetics industry alike. Consequently, LGBTQIA+ and non-binary people have seen increased visibility and representation in the public sphere and, by extension, the German cosmetics market. The rules of who can wear makeup or have an extensive skincare routine are dissolving, opening up the beauty space to a new generation of testimonials, influencers, and customers.

A Diverse German Cosmetics Industry: What Consumers Want and Why

The majority of Germans are content with the offerings in the German beauty and personal care market, and only a fraction of the population demands more ethnic diversity in advertising. However, Germany is evolving constantly and is becoming more and more diverse. Especially young people with darker skin and/or curly hair are more discerning when it comes to a diverse German cosmetics industry, and they are far more likely to let brands’ diversity credentials sway their purchase decisions.

Proof of the inclusivity of products matters to almost half of Germans, and many find brands’ diversity and inclusion efforts to be inauthentic. Therefore, brands that are not believable in their commitment to diversity and inclusion risk losing out in the German cosmetics market.

  • German Cosmetics Market Trends: Affordability is the key focus of many consumers with 38% agreeing that retailers should prioritise this.
  • Diverse German Cosmetics Industry Consumer Behaviour: 86% of Germans are happy with what the German beauty and personal care market offers.
  • Market Challenges for the Diversity in BPC Industry: Many Germans think that brands diversity initiatives are not authentic, and 42% of shoppers want to see more proof that products are indeed inclusive.
  • Beauty and Personal Care Germany Market Forecast & Opportunities: While diversity demands are still taking a back seat in the German cosmetics market, the landscape is fast evolving, and 16% would like to see more ethnic diversity in advertising. Brands have the opportunity to be among the first to cater to these demands.

Beauty and Personal Care Germany Market Forecast and Opportunities

Mintel’s diversity in German cosmetics industry research makes it clear that keeping products affordable should be BPC retailers’ biggest focus. If consumers are worried about money and struggle to afford basic necessities, all other tenets of diversity will rank far lower on their list of priorities.

Women are generally more interested in seeing diversity across the board, but brands can also improve the representation of a variety of ages and body types/sizes in the German cosmetics market, presenting the easiest way for brands to improve their image and profit in a diverse German cosmetics industry. Especially as Gen Z reach their prime spending years and the country continues to grow more ethnically diverse, what are now niche preferences and desires will come to have a bigger impact on purchase behaviour in the future.
