HEADLINES In 2010 hair care grows by modest 2% in current value terms to reach C$1.5 billion Emphasis on product development and marketing is on salon-quality care Push for salon-quality hair care in retail represents challenge for salon products and sales, forcing salon products to reconsider choice to emphasise exclusive image and quality Unit prices edged up on the wave of product development, but consumers’ cautious attitude and search for discounts limits extent of price increases L’Oréal Canada and Procter & Gamble together account for over half of all hair care sales in Canada in 2010 Hair care sales projected to see modest 1% constant value CAGR over forecast period to achieve C$1.6 billion in 2010

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE L’Oréal Canada and Procter & Gamble remained the two leading marketers of hair care products in Canada, at the end of the review period with a combined value share of 56%. L’Oréal had a slight edge over Procter & Gamble, which is chiefly due to L’Oréal’s strength in colourants, salon hair care and styling aids. Although Procter & Gamble ranked second in hair care, its Pantene brand ranked first in Canadian hair care sales in 2010 with a value share of 8%, registering a gain over 2009. The brand is particularly strong in standard shampoo, conditioners and 2-in-1 products. It is also among the topranked in styling aids. The brand receives strong support from the company, with continuing product development (most recently the Pantene Curly line of hair care products for curly hair) and strong investment into marketing and advertising to maintain a high degree of brand awareness. In fact, in 2010 the Pantene brand was officially “re-launched” with a new look and emphasis on a customised approach to hair care. The revamp reportedly led a simplified approach to hair care identifying four major hair care requirements – fine, medium-thick, curly and colour. This led to a reduction in the number of SKUs, making it easier for customers to find products according to their needs. The company called it “problem solution merchandising”. The brand re-launch was accompanied by an © Euromonitor International 2011

innovative advertising campaign featuring real female customers as opposed to celebrities and models, thereby bringing Pantene products more in touch with the average user.
