New Report Available: Health and Beauty Specialist Retailers in Taiwan

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jul 09 2014

Weak spending power continues to restrict consumer purchasing behaviour. Despite growing health awareness, especially in relation to age and lifestyle health issues, economic factors play an important role in health and beauty specialist retailers. Consumers often try to concentrate purchases during discounting and special periods.

Competitive Landscape

AS Watson Group remains by far the largest health and beauty specialist retailer in Taiwan in both outlet number and value sales terms despite a slight decline in share during 2013. The company closed down eight underperforming outlets in 2013. The group's emphasis has been on improving customer comfort and modernising stores through renovations rather than store expansion as the brand's outlet numbers are close to saturation in Taiwan. In 2013, AS Watson Group also moved away from using intense price discounting to push sales, towards a stronger focus on internet retailing and private label products which has allowed it to better differentiate itself from its price discounting rivals.
