In the special collaborative report for CTPA on the GB market from Kantar Worldpanel and IRI Worldwide, Tim Nancholas, Strategic Insight Director - Health and Beauty, Kantar Worldpanel commented:
"2018 was another tough year for the toiletries and cosmetics industry. Whilst there are always pockets of success, like prestige male fragrance and some skincare sectors, it was a gloomy year where once again we saw below inflation price rises and flat (and declining in some cases) volumes.
The industry lost over £124 million and nearly 35 million units."
