Industry/Market Economic Trends Competitive Trends Competitive Trends
Economics Industry/Market Trends The United States is recovering from one of the worst recessions in recent history At the end of 2010 the United States returned to the same GDP level that existed before the recession. Thus we expect to enter expansion. Estimating a 3.3% growth in U.S. GDP for 2011 Six straight quarters of growth. United States Economy National median household income levels have been slipping since 2006. With the economy recovering, and now expanding we predict this trend to reverse. Prime Interest Rate Current prime intertest rate in United States is 3.25% Predictions:
Prime interest rate to rise to 4.25% by end of 2011.
Reach 5.25% by end of 2012. Sharp decline from 2006-2008. Since then rate has remained stable. Thus incentives for businesses to expand will be expected to decrease over the next few years. Consumer Confidence Median Household Income
The Consumer Confidence Index currently stands at 60.6%. This is an increase from a December dip to 53.3%. These levels have been the norm over the past two years. However, the economy is currently in an upward trend creating a short term outlook that is relatively positive. Consumers have shown signs of slowly gaining trust in the U.S economy, but still remain far from the confidence levels experienced throughout 2006. Brand Competitors The Body Shop

Shoes Sudden increase in demand for organic cosmetics since 2004. Companies focusing on natural ingredients Relatively new industry, yet already valued at over a billion dollars. Sales stemming primarly from North America and Europe, followed by Japan. Organic industry has sales approaching $10 billion worldwide. Original market was created from small companies, now major market leaders taking an active role. Major companies acquiring small organic cosmetic organizations Todays consumers are focusing on products that are healthy for the environment Political Trends Cosmetic industry must adhere to the United States Food and Drug Administration However, must only stay within limits of administration, approval for products not needed. Thus industry operates under style of self regulation. CFTA, a national trade association, attempts to maitain the bridge between the cosmetics industry and the government. Successful lobbying to keep certain raxes and tariffs out of the cosmetic industry. Recent trend suggests CTFA is losing group and self regulating is coming to an end due to concern over certain chemicals being linked to cancer. Product Competitors
