Bourjois lacks expansion in emerging markets, says Euromonitor’s expert after the Coty-Chanel deal

Coty announced last week their intention to purchase the Bourjois cosmetics brand from Chanel.

According to Ildiko Szalai, Senior Analyst - Beauty and Personal Care Research at Euromonitor, the purchase of Bourjois falls in line with Coty’s core strategy of high-speed expansion through acquisitions. “The integration of the brand adds a percentage point market value share to Coty’s Colour Cosmetics portfolio,” he says. Bourjois also registers global level sales in mass deodorants and fragrances in 2013.

Although a growing proportion of the brand’s sales is generated in the Middle East and Africa, the most attractive region for colour cosmetics up to 2018.

However, “Coty could build good operational synergies for Bourjois with its Rimmel and Astor brands to aid further geographic expansion and benefit from larger scale of economies in mass colour cosmetics.
