Italian Market - Analysis on the state of companies

S.I.L.C. at 14th place among Italian companies in the toiletry sector.

The supplement to n. 11 di Largo Consumo/2005, published in November last year "Italian market - analysis of the state of the companies" describes in detail the state of Italian companies in the non-food grocery sector, with data relative to 2002/2003.

The magazine cover defines the situation in the sector with these words: "The sector, with a few exceptions, is under pressure from international competition that has undergone radical restructuring and concentration".

The fact that domestic consumption has slowed and strong pressure from international competition are the causes of a very modest growth in the sector. "The production value of the Italian cosmetics and toiletries industry in 2004 was 7.4 billion Euro (+3.9%). Exports totalled 2 billion (+9.4%) and imports 1.3 billion (+3.3%). The domestic market is much less dynamic".

While cosmetic consumption in 2004 showed a dynamic positive growth of around 5%, in particular, purchase for toiletry products in 2004 recorded an increase of less than 2%.
