Coty Beauty What is Coty Beauty? Coty is the leading fragrance manufacturer in the fragrance industry. Coty licenses, manufacturers and distributes Prestige Designer fragrances, Mass Celebrity fragrances and Mass and Value Cosmetic brands. Cotys primary business is fragrance.

In recent years Coty has made strategic acquisitions intended to increase company presence in the industry by way of a broader portfolio of Prestige and Mass brands and to leverage these acquired brands to receive added distribution through various retail channels.
State of the Fragrance Industry Current Market Status: Saturation. The market is saturated with numerous fragrance companies that manufacturer and distribute Prestige Designer and Celebrity brands.

Cosmetics: LOreal, Revlon, Maybelline, Wet & Wild Cotys Challenge: Stay competitive in a saturated market with a portfolio of brands largely dependent on popularity and line extensions.
Fragrance Industry Challenges: Consumer spending is down. Sales are down. A global economy teetering on recovery. Retailers are limiting space and inventory. Retailers are restructuring the in-store experience (CVS 360, Duane Reade Look Boutique, Sephora and Department Stores revamp). Changing consumer demographics. Changing consumer tastes. Growing consumer awareness of harmful beauty ingredients. Growing consumer awareness of green and sustainable efforts. Niche brands have entered the competitive market Clothing Retailers have entered the market (Gap, Banana Republic) Cotys Objective: Develop a new, innovative, and unique fragrance concept considering Cotys position in the industry and current market challenges.
