Cosmetics Industry Overview

by Pamojan Admin

The Global Cosmetics Manufacturing industry ; develops, designs, produces and markets not only personal care goods for everyday use, such as deodorant, shaving cream and dental floss, but also more specialty cosmetic products, such as tooth whitening strips, eyeliner and perfume. Since all of the industry's products are manufactured along a wide spectrum of quality and price options, the variability of these markets and products acts to somewhat cushion the industry from drastic changes in revenue. Further, demand for luxury discretionary cosmetics and beauty products that can be sold at higher price points has increased, thereby boosting profitability for many operators. 

Total global sales in 2020 was ; a whopping $483 billion. With an annual growth rate of 4.75%, total revenue is expected to top $716 billion by 2025.- Skincare was the leading category, for about 42 percent of the global   market. - Hair care products made up a further 22 percent, - Make-up accounted for 16 percent in 2020. - Skin care is one of the most profitable product category, as  its revenue is projected to generate roughly 177 billion U.S. dollars in 2025.- As of 2020, Asia Pacific was the industry leader, accounting for approximately 43 percent of the global market.
