"Deodorants in the United Arab Emirates" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Oct 10 2014

The strong population growth recorded in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 due to the high numbers of expatriates moving to the country due to its economic boom and the rising number of highly-paid job vacancies contributed substantially to growth recorded in deodorants in the United Arab Emirates during 2013. Deodorants are generally considered to be essential beauty and personal care items. In addition, the widening availability of deodorants in supermarkets and hypermarkets also contributed to value growth in deodorants during 2013 and this included premium grocery retailers outlets frequented mainly by high-income consumers such as Waitrose and economy outlets such as the Union Cooperative in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which are generally frequented by middle-income and low-income consumers. This was especially the case as numerous companies operating in deodorants are offering their products at promotional prices and through bundle offers. Deodorant sprays was the deodorants category which was the most common target for these price promotions, although deodorant sticks and deodorant roll-ons were also subject to reasonably frequent price promotions towards the end of the review period.
