Polishes held no surprises in 2013. Whether sold in supermarkets or in specialised outlets, polishes are often thought of as old-fashioned products, and almost nothing is done to improve their image or boost their sales. The lack of media investment and limited displays on store shelves also affected sales, along with new housekeeping habits and changing interior design in Belgium. Lastly, most polishes are useful when used regularly or for deep cleaning, but consumers spend less and less time on this type of task.

The competitive environment for polishes was characterised by a high concentration of sales between two players, Reckitt Benckiser and SC Johnson Benelux on the one hand, and many players with fragmented value shares and varying levels of dynamism on the other. In 2013 Reckitt Benckiser was still the leader in polishes, with a retail value share of 31%. It benefited from the strong positioning of its Ca-Va-Seul brand across the majority of types of polishes, particularly shoe polish.

Industry Prospects

Unless there is a return to the use of more traditional materials, most trade sources are rather pessimistic about the outlook for polishes. The trend towards less leather, wood or metal (such as silver or copper) is expected to continue for some time, according to trade sources. In addition, the consumer base that is still loyal to these materials is ageing, and not being replaced. Due to increasingly busy lifestyles, consumers are expected to continue to favour easier to use and more convenient surface care products over polishes during the forecast period.
