In FMGC products, even though the margin of revenue profit in comparison to others is small, the collective profit is always better because commonly they sold in a huge quantity. Over the past quarter-century, the expansion of the internet and the growth of the brand community happening have contributed to a great extent of the demand for FMCG products. The product's success of FMCG mainly relies on brand equity, marketing, distribution network and a thorough understanding of customer behavior and their demand.
