The French cosmetics and toiletries market is clearly reaching maturity, especially in product types such as shampoo, womens deodorants and perfume, demand for which is stable in volume terms. However, manufacturers efforts to add value to their ranges through further segmentation and continued sophistication boosted sales to see growth of 5.1% in current value terms in 2002, in line with the 4.8% CAGR demonstrated over the review period as a whole. The best performers were hair care, colour cosmetics, skin care and depilatories, which all enjoyed over 6% value growth in 2002. On the other hand, baby care and fragrances were the least dynamic in 2002, increasing by 2% and 1.8% respectively in current value terms. This was due to their high level of maturity.
