Argentina is one of the largest economies of Latin America after Brazil. The Argentinian cosmetics market, worth $ 3.79 billion as of 2015, is projected to grow at CAGR 6.88% to $ 5.29 billion by 2020. The predominant trends for cosmetics include lasting power and new color palettes, increasing market share for ethnic products, and an increased preference for vegan, organic and natural beauty products, enhanced through usage of other ingredients, to mitigate harmful effects of pollution, sun, dust, and harmful ingredients typically a part of cosmetic products.
Distribution is pervasive through exclusive stores of luxury products in malls or standalone but most commonly through direct selling channels by companies like Avon, while ecommerce is emerging as a competitor to direct sales for all mass and premium brands. Customers are increasingly looking for value for money products offering a makeup look and a range of other benefits like anti-ageing, fresh-looking, anti-pimples/sebum controlling, moisturizing, etc. and also contain the increasingly popular ingredient kind natural ingredients. It is because of this, that products like BB, CC, DD and EE creams have increased in popularity.
Products which are value added and have this range of benefits otherwise available with premium brands are categorized under the new class â€œmasstigeâ€. Mid income customers are trading down from premium to masstige, and from masstige to mass market depending on purchasing power and the multi-benefits offered in products. While mass and masstige products are on demand by a large section of middle/low income Argentinians who are taking to home based DIY beauty treatments rather than do them in salons, the premium cosmetics category in Argentina has been on the rise.
Famous brands include Mary Kay, Lâ€™OrÃ©al, Natura, Avon, Beiersdorf, Yanbal, Belcorp, Proctor & Gamble, Unilever, and Kimberly-Clark, among others. Avon was the market leader in Argentina.
An inclination to look good, availability of new markets, increased spends by international companies looking to invest in the market, teens growing older younger and a large body of ageing population wanting to look younger by using cosmetics are some of the drivers of this market.
Economic slowdown, a highly competitive market in both direct selling as well as store based selling, tighter purse strings, barriers on import of people wanting to opt for DIY beauty treatments at home instead of spending on salons, and some other factors make the challenges in this market.
