"Bath and Shower in Ireland" is now available at Fast Market Research

After several years of decline, the bath and shower category achieved very marginal growth in 2013 with value sales reaching €72 million. It seems that this category has hit rock bottom in certain areas, such as bar soap and bath additives, both of which saw growth in 2013 as their unit prices began to increase once more. While Irish household spending remains tentative, confidence is slowly returning to many consumers, and with this sales have started to turn around and increase for the first time since 2009.

Competitive Landscape

Allegro Ltd was the number one selling brand owner within bath and shower in 2013, taking over from Unilever Ireland Ltd. Allegro Ltd is responsible for the distribution of many significant brands within this category, most notably Nivea and Sanex. It has also taken over the distribution of Radox from Unilever Ireland Ltd as the company reduces its operations in Ireland. Unilever Ireland Ltd’s value share declined from 32% to 17% over 2012-2013. The majority of its brands continue to grow.

Industry Prospects

Bath and shower sales are projected to decline over the forecast period in value terms. While there is still strong demand for bath and shower products, the category has hit maturity and is now in decline due to the environment being saturated with entrants, and the increased competition has meant overall unit prices are declining. There is a lack of innovation within this category, particularly for mass products, so there are few ways for manufacturers to differentiate themselves, apart from through their price point.
