New Market Research Report: Bath and Shower in Malaysia

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Dec 05 2014

Changing consumption patterns saw consumers moving from bar soap to body wash/shower gel and liquid soap. Bar soap experienced a declining trend because consumers prefer to have body wash/shower gel or liquid soap available in the bottle ready for use, instead of having to first unwrap the paper packaging before using the bar soap which is inconvenient. In addition to this, refill packs are also available, which is an economical factor which encourages more consumers in Malaysia to switch from bar soap to body wash/shower gel and liquid soap.

Competitive Landscape

Unilever maintained its leading position with 24% value share in 2013, leaving far behind the second player. Its number one position was contributed by a portfolio of well-known brands, including Lux, Lifebuoy, Dove and Impulse, which have been popular for a long time and become household brands in Malaysia. In addition, the company constantly engages in marketing activities to keep its brands top of consumers’ minds. Commercials for brands like Lux, Lifebuoy and Dove can be seen regularly on major local television channels.

Industry Prospects

High growth rates and a large number of industry players mean that bath and shower will experience tougher levels of competition over the forecast period. Companies will have to constantly innovate in order to capture consumer attention. Extra benefits will be added to bath and shower products to make them more relevant with market trends, such as whitening, anti-stress and natural ingredients. It is expected that the category will remain highly fragmented with many strong players trying to vie for a piece of the pie.
