About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling has been affected by the current economic downturn in Italy, both positively and negatively. While the Italian customer base has experienced a strong decrease in disposable income, with people being forced to postpone purchases of non-essential items and having to tighten their belts, the soaring unemployment rate (10% in 2012) has forced people to find new and creative ways to generate additional income. As a consequence, many people have enrolled in a direct selling programme, whether they already have a salary or not. Most of the workforce in direct selling is made up of women, especially stay-at-home mothers, however, the number of men is increasing, especially in specific categories like direct selling of appliances.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Foreign players lead in the direct selling category in Italy.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period, direct selling is expected to increase at a slightly slower pace compared to the last two years of the review period. Discretionary spending is still shrinking in Italy, with a negative impact on sales of higher ticket items, in particular.
