The UK health & beauty market is forecast to grow by 21.1% over the next four years, outperforming all other sectors. With a whopping estimated market value of £26.7 billion by 2022, £3.1 billion of these earnings will be made online. A higher share than ever before, these predictions show how consumer spend is increasingly shifting towards eCommerce channels.
With this in mind, at fulfilmentcrowd we’re staying ahead of the trend with the completion of a new high-density picking system at our Matrix Park site earlier this month. Creating over 3,000 picking locations for smaller items like aerosols, perfumes and other cosmetics, the new investment is perfect for supporting the ongoing growth of online retailers operating in the health and beauty market sectors. Our Sales & Marketing Director, Lee Thompson expands, “Applied management science and intelligent technology set us apart from competitors; our enhanced capability to handle compact, fragile and delicate items will drive further business growth”.
As well as all things cosmetics, the new picking system also establishes our Matrix Park site into a centre of excellence for online fashion fulfilment. Delivering ‘white glove’ facilities, the new racking will provide clean, separate storage for the handling of clothing and accessories such as intricate jewellery. By increasing our capacity to fulfil orders in the eCommerce fashion sector, we’re all set to serve the forecasted growth of 55.3% within the online clothing market by 2022- more than doubling its existing value over the next four years.
If you’re a multi-channel retailer operating in fashion, beauty and/or health sectors, we have you covered; every fulfilment process carried out in our modern centres is controlled by our automated handling and quality control procedures. We’re proud to provide bespoke solutions to our client base, so don't hesitate to get a quick estimate via our fulfilment calculator.
