New market study, "Health and Beauty Specialist Retailers in Finland", has been published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Feb 06 2015

Health and beauty specialist retailers saw current value sales grow by 1% in 2014 over the previous year. The channel is fairly mature and competition is intense in many areas such as optical goods stores and chemists/pharmacies. In addition, poor economic development in Finland in 2013 and 2014 and growing competition from internet retailing further constrained growth at the end of the review period. Online chemists/pharmacies notably emerged due to legislation being liberalised in 2012.

Competitive Landscape

Health and beauty specialist retailers is led by the pharmacy chain Yta with a value share of 15%. Yta is a cooperative of pharmacies with a primary presence in rural areas. The cooperative does not operate a common store brand. The member pharmacies carry individual names, but cooperate within purchase and marketing. Over the review period, Yta has pursued an aggressive expansion strategy, increasing the number of outlets every year.

Industry Prospects

Health and beauty specialist retailers will see 2% value decline at constant 2014 prices over the forecast period as a whole. This decline will be due to maturity and strong price competition. Competition from internet retailing will also grow further and constrain sales. Increasing competition from hypermarkets and mixed retailers, which offer a widening range of health and beauty products at often competitive prices, will also challenge health and beauty specialist retailers. Due to intense price competition, many smaller outlets will be forced to close, with outlet numbers thus declining slowly over the forecast period.
