United Kingdom Health & Beauty Market Report 2018-2023: Boots Remains as Market Leader but Continues to Cede Share - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "The UK Health & Beauty Market 2018-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

"The UK Health & Beauty Market 2018-2023", report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the health & beauty market (including forecasts up to 2023), the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts, retailer profiles, retailer market shares, consumer data and future outlook.

UK consumers continue to exhibit polarised beauty shopping habits as they are enticed by premium brands as well as cheaper value alternatives, putting a squeeze on the midmarket. Indeed value players and discounters are opting to emulate midmarket and premium products in a bid to secure spend.

As the department store channel continues to suffer and store closures will hit both House of Fraser and Debenhams over the next five years, it is expected the likes of John Lewis and online pureplays to steal customers owing to their focus on premium brands and fulfillment prowess.

An emphasis on holistic health & beauty means that today's consumers are looking for products that enhance overall wellbeing. This includes how they feel consciously about products, which has led to a rise in interest in ethical and animal cruelty-free products. Retailers must adapt to this demand with greater promotion and clarity over ethical ranges, while exploiting demand for vegan and cruelty-free ranges, which have gained popularity.

Interest in health categories such as sports nutrition and vitamins is also increasing as part of the quest for optimal wellbeing, creating a growth opportunity.

The report focuses on health (OTC medicines & other health) and beauty (babycare, bathroom toiletries, cosmetics, dental care, haircare, men's toiletries, paper products, fragrance, skincare, and other beauty).


  • While Boots remains as market leader, it continues to cede share, as spend shifts away to discounters and online pureplays
  • Skincare is the highest growth category, with spend expected to rise by 22.8% over the next five years as a demand for ingredient transparency and innovative new brands drives interest
