Market Report, "Polishes in Norway", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Apr 20 2015

Shoe polish continued to be the greatest driver of value growth within polishes in Norway in 2014. Unlike metal, furniture and floor polish, shoe polish is seen as a vital component of Norwegian life. Because of harsh weather conditions over the winter months in Norway, where outdoor walking conditions are made more difficult by varying degrees of snow, ice, water and mud, shoes and boots are put under severe strain. This requires constant preservation and treatment, particularly for leather shoes, which are the most common amongst Norwegian professionals, thus maintaining the need for shoe polishes.

Competitive Landscape

SC Johnson Norway led sales of polishes in Norway in 2014 with a value share of 66%. The main driver of its sales was Kiwi shoe polish, which accounted for a 44% value share on its own. In addition, SC Johnson Norway is prominent in the categories of furniture polish and floor polish, where the Pledge brand is the leader. Pledge accounted for an 18% value share of polishes in 2014.

Industry Prospects

With timesaving and convenience the key drivers of most categories in home care in 2014, and set to be throughout the forecast period, sales of polishes are also set to feel the effects of these trends. Apart from shoe polish, which is seen as an essential component of Norwegian life, furniture, metal and floor polish are set to continue their decline. Norwegians have less time to spare when it comes to extra household activities, and are therefore less and less enthusiastic about polishing various household items unless absolutely necessary. This is expected to lead to further declines in both volume and value at constant 2014 prices terms for all three categories over the forecast period.
