About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling continued to see a rather difficult time in Germany in 2012, mainly due to the competition from other retail channels, especially internet retailing. An increasing number of Germans, including amongst the older population, go online and use the many different online retailers in order to inform themselves about products, services and especially prices. Due to their cost structure, direct selling products usually cannot compete in terms of price with the products sold over the internet, and the sales agents find it increasingly difficult to explain the added-value of their products to their customers.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The top players in direct selling in Germany in 2012, all with value shares of around 10%, continued to be Vorwerk Deutschland Stiftung, Tupperware Deutschland and LR Health & Beauty Systems. All three have a long history in Germany, comparatively good awareness and reputation, and quite large sales teams.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period to 2017, direct selling is expected to see a further decline, with a negative CAGR of 2% in constant value terms, with sales expected to reach €2.3 billion; down almost €200 million compared with 2012. There are many different factors responsible for this rather bleak outlook, but mainly the growing importance of the internet, in combination with the price-sensitivity of many Germans, are the key barriers to success.
