About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling recorded current value growth of 2% in 2015 as the channel benefited from its distinctive business model and the advantages of direct contact with customers. Many Finnish consumers continued to enjoy gathering together at social sales events towards the end of the review period. The poor economic environment in Finland in 2015 did not affect the channel as it did some other retailing channels. This was mainly because, at a time of rising unemployment, more Finns looked to direct selling as a way of generating extra income.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Tupperware led direct selling in 2015 with a 10% value share. This brand has a longstanding presence in Finland and a wide network of sales consultants, not to mention its army of very loyal customers. Tupperware products are well trusted among Finnish consumers and its brand name is typically recognised, even by those were not regular customers of the brand. Tupperware also actively developed innovative new products during the review period and the company has come a long way from its traditional and iconic plastic food storage containers to now offer a much wider range of homewares. The current health and wellness trend has positively contributed to demand for its new products types, including microwave pressure cookers and non-electric smoothie mixers, which helped to keep the company’s value share in direct selling stable throughout the review period.

PROSPECTS

  • In the short-term, it is likely that direct selling sales will remain largely stagnant as the adverse economic outlook for Finland is expected to prevent positive growth from emerging in the channel. In the medium-term, the development of direct selling depends largely on product innovation and the possible introduction of new brands. There are product categories that are currently underrepresented in direct selling but which have the potential to perform well in the channel. These include products such as sports nutrition. Finns are keen on buying such products due to the current fitness boom and no major company has yet been able to achieve significant value sales in the category. If successful new products and brands were to be introduced in sports nutrition direct selling during the forecast period, it is possible that this would boost the overall growth potential of the channel. However, the brands which are currently available in direct selling are expected to generate quite stable but positive value growth over the forecast proved, with the channel is it to increase at a CAGR of 2% in constant 2015 terms. The long-term growth prospects for direct selling depends mainly on future company activity as direct selling is a category from which consumers do not generally actively search to buy from, but which is a potential to grow if companies choose to actively invest in it.
