Key Market Trends

Strong Preference for International Brands over Domestic Products

Consumers in ASEAN countries, especially in Malaysia and Indonesia, prefer buying foreign-made cosmetic products rather than local products. Research shows that majority of the respondents in these countries like global brands. As consumer's expectations and purchasing power rises, there is a growing demand for imported niche and premium brands of sensitive skin care products. The demand for imported skin care products continues to increase, along with the growth in the need for affordable premium cosmetic brands from middle-class consumers in Indonesia. Countries, like Malaysia, have a dynamic and diversified economy and continue to enjoy robust growth in consumer spending. When it comes to sensitive skin care and personal healthcare, sensitive skin care products are experiencing particularly favorable growth.


Supermarkets and Specialty Stores Most Preferred Channels of Purchase

The mass-market personal care brands from global giants, such as Unilever and Johnson & Johnson, are quite prevalent and widely available at supermarkets and hypermarkets. Thus, consumers seeking such sensitive skin care products find it convenient to shop from supermarkets or hypermarkets. Moreover, the consumers are gaining traction for specialty stores to buy sensitive skin care products, as these channels comprise better customer service and have premium products, thereby enabling consumers to make product comparisons from a wide variety of sensitive skin care products. Despite such a niche approach, specialty stores face stiff competition from online stores, in terms of product offerings and attractive discount options.


Competitive Landscape

The ASEAN sensitive skin care products market is a moderately fragmented market and comprises regional and international competitors. The market is dominated by brands like Sebamed, Simple, Cetaphil, Eau Thermale Avène, Derma 365, Aveeno, and Neutrogena. These players are increasing their investments in R&D and marketing and expanding their distribution channels to maintain their position in the market. Moreover, global players in the market are focusing on leveraging opportunities posed by the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, like Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam, to expand their revenue base.
