Report Highlights

In a recent evaluation of new product claims/tags, 'upscale' was the most commonly occurring for new personal care products, whereas it is was the 13th most common for new food and drink products. The personal care industry is consistently employing methods to justify a premium positioning for its products.

Although the value of the global personal care market is approximately nine times smaller than that for food and drink overall, it is growing at a faster rate: Business Insights predicts overall growth from 2009-2015 to be 21.9% for all food and drink, and 25.3% for personal care.

Many new skin care/foundation type products are promoted on multifunctional applications and benefits. These may include moisturizing, sun protection, whitening, anti-wrinkle, and other features. Multi-functionality in many food products is exhibited in terms of benefits rather than specific applications or characteristics.
