Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Samantha Dover, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The UK beauty and personal care market remains challenging, as weak growth in personal care continues to hinder growth in the wider market. Meanwhile, the beauty segment is driving the market, boosted by make-up and skincare trends. Many of the health and beauty specialists have reacted to these trends and as a result are capturing engaged BPC shoppers, whilst retailers that typically target those looking for everyday toiletries are struggling to grow share as the downward pressure on pricing has been sustained.
