Moats Should Help Beauty Firms Capture Accelerating Market Growth and Manage ESG Challenges

Analyst Note

| Rebecca Scheuneman, CFA |

The global beauty market has realized 4%-5% annual growth over the past decade (excluding the pandemic), and we expect a modest acceleration to 5% in the next 10 years as China becomes a bigger portion of the mix (from 19% of the global market in 2021 to 29% in 2031 by our estimate) and as makeup continues to recover post-pandemic. China should continue to be a driving force of growth for years to come, as consumers in this region are just beginning to expand into makeup, fragrance, and haircare, although the skincare market is more developed. Further, as other emerging markets (Brazil, India, Mexico) experience rising incomes, this should boost their per capita consumption of beauty, providing additional growth potential beyond China.

Company Profile COTY

Business Description

Coty is a global beauty company that sells fragrances (58% of fiscal 2021 revenue), color cosmetics (29%), and skin/body care (13%). The firm licenses brands such as Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Gucci, Burberry, and Davidoff for its prestige portfolio. Coty’s most popular color cosmetic brands are CoverGirl, Max Factor, Rimmel, Sally Hansen, and Kylie. Coty also holds a minority stake in a salon and retail haircare business, including brands Wella, Clairol, OPI, and GHD. Francois Coty founded the firm in 1904 and it remained private until its 2013 IPO. It had focused on prestige fragrances and nail salon brands until the 2016 acquisition of Procter & Gamble's beauty business. This nearly doubled the firm's revenue base, and launched it into mass-channel cosmetics and professional hair care.
