About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling is facing growth despite the difficult economic downturn in the country. This is the result of a combination of two factors: all major companies have been investing in developing a more higher end product range in order to justify a higher retail price, although they have also been recruiting a more dynamic and motivated workforce that at a time of soaring unemployment looks at direct selling as an opportunity to make a living.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Vorwerk’s Folletto leads with a 20% value share, followed by Avon with 10% and Herbalife with 5%. The historical presence of these brands in Italy represents a key factor for success among Italian consumers who know the products and their level of price and quality. With this in mind, non-regular customers know how to find company representatives, while new customers overcome their initial resistance as they know exactly what they are purchasing.

PROSPECTS

  • Going forward, direct selling is expected to sustain positive growth thanks to the refocus on a more up-market product offering. However, growth is expected to be slower than in the past due to the increasing role played by the internet channel.
