Executive Summary

Jun 2019
Growing consumer spending in beauty and personal care fostered by innovation and new launches

Beauty and personal care registered strong growth in 2018 that was fostered by intensifying beauty trends, growing purchasing power among urban consumers and increasing product variety. Bulgarian consumers were becoming more sophisticated and demanded new launches that were attractive in terms of value for money.

Pharma cosmetics grow in popularity

Pharma beauty and personal care is consistently growing in Bulgaria. However, it is still perceived as emerging and underdeveloped.

International players achieve great results in 2018

The large international players strengthened their positions in beauty and personal care in 2018. The best-performing companies in the year were the leader L’Oréal Bulgaria, Beiersdorf Bulgaria, Henkel Bulgaria, and Sarantis Bulgaria.

Retailers expanding private label presence in beauty and personal care

To capitalise on the sustainable rise in spending in urban centres, large chained modern grocery retailers and drugstores/parapharmacies have significantly expanded their outlet networks in Bulgarian’s major cities. The rising incomes and high employment rate in urban centres ensured rising consumption levels in such cities.

Alternative niche brands gaining in significance thanks to internet retailing
