Despite increasing consumer confidence and dynamism in terms of new agents employed, the performance of direct selling in 2013 and 2014 was negatively affected by the strong growth of internet retailing. However, despite the overall slight negative performance, there were categories which proved successful in 2014, thanks especially to the private and conviviality features of direct selling. Apparel and footwear, home improvement and gardening and housewares managed to see growth in 2014. On the other hand, media products suffered strongly from the competition with internet retailing.

Competitive Landscape

Tupperware Belgium and Victoria Benelux were the biggest companies in direct selling in terms of value sales in 2014. Both companies took advantage of the increasing demand for homewares, and especially of the positive trend of home parties, which became increasingly popular during the economic recession, when customers looked for cheaper options to socialise.

Industry Prospects

Two factors are likely to prevent direct selling from experiencing a positive performance over the forecast period: legislation on the one hand, and the continuous development of internet retailing on the other. Whilst companies and trade associations might be successful in lobbying against the legislative constraints that affected the channel during the review period, it is very unlikely that the channel will be able to overcome the competition from internet retailing.
