The client- A renowned personal care products retailer, Revenue– $2.1 billion in revenue, Area of engagement- Inventory optimization
Over the years, the personal care products segment has contributed to a major share of the retail industry’s revenues, owing to the rising emphasis on beautification and personal hygiene. With the growing concern for reducing the usage of chemical substances in the products, leading personal care products manufacturers are planning to invest highly in innovations to develop eco-friendly designs. The personal care products space, at large, will witness a stipulated growth with the growing spending power of the consumers, the influence of international brands, and burgeoning growth of the retail industry. Moreover, the growth in the population and rising demand for luxury products will influence the growth of the personal care products space.
Here are some of the factors that may curtail the growth of the industry over the years.
- Rising preference for organic care products: In the last couple of the years, the preferences of the consumers have started changing, and they have moved towards the use of organic personal care products. The rising concern regarding the negative health impacts of using synthetic care products is compelling businesses to leverage the use of technological capabilities to streamline their product offerings.
- Government intervention: The health issues associated with using synthetic care products are compelling retailers to come up with more natural ingredients for human usage. In the US, the FDA is continuously focusing on creating guidelines to determine the safety of the products for the consumers use. The 21CFR laws pertaining to cosmetics also ensure strict regulations on cosmetics production.
To counter such challenges and devise effective ways to maintain consistency in the product offerings, organizations are leveraging inventory management solutions. An inventory management solution helps businesses accurately keep track of the products to better serve the customers. Through an effective inventory management solution, businesses can minimize inventory write-offs and overstocks and increase the overall supply chain efficiency.
