1. Market overview In 2011, Vietnam cosmetics posted strong current value growth. Over the review period, manufacturers launched vigorous marketing activities to compete with each other to stimulate consumer demand. There was also greater availability of new brands targeting different consumer segments. Colour cosmetics, skin care, hair care and perfumes performed very well over the review period. Consumers showed great interest in premium brands. As Vietnamese consumers enjoyed higher disposable income and standard of living, they were more willing to spend on premium products, which they believed to have better quality compared to domestic ones. Greater exposure to premium brands and higher availability of premium products also helped in changing consumer preference. International players outperformed domestic players in all product categories. Foreign brands were well represented in both mass and premium product segments, gaining consumers due to their active marketing activities, strong brand awareness and good product quality. Meanwhile, local manufacturers continued to struggle due to the fierce competition. They tended to focus on low-income segments, or consumers in rural areas to drive sales. Modern retail channels continued to outperform traditional channels such as independent small grocers and outdoor markets. Supermarkets or hypermarkets continued to post healthy growth in terms of facilities, numbers and coverage. This channel offered a better and more convenient shopping experience, with easy accessibility, competitive price, wide range of products and reliable product origins. Vietnam is predicted to continue its robust development in beauty and personal care over the forecast period. The country has great potential for growth with the young population and the untapped market in rural areas. Consumers, especially those living in urban areas, are expected to have more exposure to the products benefits and usage and therefore have more sophisticated demand for beauty and personal care products. Value growth and product availability are both expected to be strong.

2. Cosmetics consumption in Vietnam In the last four years, the value of Vietnam cosmetics consumption has increased steadily with an average rate of 7%, equal to 372 million USD annually. In 2011, the consumption reached a record of 410.4 million USD which is 21.8% higher than the 2008s value. This steady growth is mainly driven by younger professionals, who have an increasing expendable income that they want to spend on good quality but affordable products.

In details, products for skin and body (156.9 million USD) and haircare (157.5 million USD) made up a major share of 76% of total consumption in the year of 2011. Meanwhile, toiletries products e.g. shaving cream, deodorants, bath preparations held a stable position of 12%, equal to 46.4 million USD per year.

According to Vietnams Chemical Cosmetic Associations data, there are over 430 leading cosmetic brands on sale in the Country, of which 90% is well-known foreign brands. Well-known international brands such as LOreal, Clinique, Estee Lauder and Clarins are all proving very popular and are continuing to build on an exciting brand recognition and association with good quality products. In the recent years, many international brand owners have chosen to invest in production and distribution facilities in Vietnam, with names such as Unilever, P&G, Beiersdorf, Avon, Shiseido, all building facilties in Vietnam. In the other hand, the domestic brands only cater to the lower segments, with cheaper less sophisticated brands that tend towards simple formulations and basic packaging. However, their advantages lie on well understanding of the market and consumers needs and applying natural ingredients extracts into production. In summary, the market opportunity is still available and there is significant room for the expansion and further development of both domestic and foreign brands. 3. Domestic production In Vietnam, the supplies of cosmetic products are divided into three categories, which are domestic products, legally imported products, and hand-carried and illegally imported products. It is estimated that 70% of the cosmetics distributed through traditional retail stores and market, are illegally imported. Since there is not official data of hand-carried and illegally imported products, this research only focuses on the first two categories. During 2008 2011 period, the production value of local manufacturers went up slightly with annual rate of 10.4%. The output went through the roof with 381.7 million USD in 2010 before holding back with 0.5% decrease in the next year on the ground that local consumers started tightening their expenditure under the Countrys economic crisis. This year, it is forecasted that the output value will decline a little bit, owing to the fact that the business conditions are still negative.

Most of cosmetic products supplied by local manufacturers are skin care, body care, hair care and oral hygiene products. These products mainly have simple formulation and affordable prices to many types of consumers. On the contrary, sophisticated products e.g. perfumes, nail, make-up, only make up a minor share and in some extent, compensated by the imported products.

4. Export value From 2008 to 2011, Vietnamese cosmetic producers exported 16 percent, or 59 million USD, of their annual output into neighboring countries such as Japan, India, Korea, China and ASEAN countries.

In 2008, the export value was 33.13 million USD. However, the value has soared dramatically to 104.3 million USD in 2011, with annual grow rate of 49.3%. This dramatic increase is solely contributed by foreign-invested companies. For example, Procter & Gamble (P&G) Indochina and Shiseido Vietnam are the two largest exporters, which occupied 36% of total export revenue in 2011.

5. Import value Due to the lack of domestic production, sophisticated and high level cosmetic products have to be imported. From 2008-2011, imports grew at a relatively rapid pace of 34.7% yearly. In 2008, the total import value was 80.4 million USD, but has soared significantly to 182.4 million USD in 2011. Specifically, this significant growth was solely driven by the increasing demand of high quality skin and body care and make up products, from 15.4 million USD in 2008 to 75.6 million in 2011. In the meantime, perfumes, hair care, toiletries and bath preparation still went up gradually with growth of 17.6%, 13.4% and 22.6% respectively. Local importers and distributors forecast that demand will likely increase between 10-15% in the next several years due to the increasing need of the young professionals.

6. Category analysis 6.1. Perfumes

Throughout 2008 - 2011 period, perfumes displayed a robust current value growth of 18.8% annually. This was due to the rising demand and greater availability of products. Perfumes were regarded as luxury products by most Vietnamese and were used during special occasions such as parties and weddings. During the reviewed period there was a significant increase in frequency of perfumes usage, mostly among the younger and fashionable generation. They employ perfumes as an essential component when going out and socializing, rather than limiting it for special occasions only.

Source: ICE Hochiminh processing of General Department of Customs of Vietnams data

In 2011, France remained in the leading position in perfumes with a 51.7% value share, due to its outstanding performance in mass segments. A strong presence, at major luxury department stores in the whole Country, is a large advantage to reach the major potential consumers. Philippines stabilized at the second position with 13.7%. This value was mainly contributed by Avon Products Inc and Johnson & Johnson Consumer Asia Pacific whose manufacturing facilities located in Philippines. Italy held the third position with 7.9% value share with 23.8% growth rate during the review period. Italian perfume brands, popular to local market, are Bulgari, Gucci, Armani and Versace, of which Bulgari took the second leading position brand with over 1 million USD import value in 2011. Perfumes are expected to see a constant annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.8% over the forecast period, due to growing demand from consumers and more international brands officially entering Vietnam market. The main consumers will still be young adults with middle to high-incomes.

Vietnam has a tropical climate, with high temperatures and humidity all year round. It is easy for both men and women to perspire and produce unpleasant body odours. As people became more conscious about their appearance and body odour, deodorants, bath and shower products became more essential. Thus, the category recorded a healthy current value growth at 22.6 % in the last four years. Comparison of toiletries import value in 2009 and 2011
