U.S. Cosmetovigilance market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Cosmetovigilance is the ongoing gathering, assessment, and monitoring of information about the safety of cosmetics as they relate to human health. Before cosmetic products hit the market, manufacturers must ensure that both the products' ingredients and finished products are safe. They must compile information on any negative side effects. Key drivers ascertaining the cosmetics penetration include rising average daily usage of social media, introduction of new products, and rising demand in developing economies. The global market is also anticipated to increase as a result of growing regulatory convergence.

Furthermore, developing nations such as India & China are seeing increased disposable incomes, changing lifestyles that encourage the enhancement of external beauty, and rising market awareness. India used to have very detailed rules that divided cosmetics into many categories for identification and monitoring. However, the rules have recently become more flexible in line with the cosmetics industry's expectations, and this portends significant growth in future.

In addition, it is expected that the advancement of cosmetovigilance software solutions, the introduction of novel products, the establishment of an efficient surveillance system, and the streamlining of the cosmetovigilance procedure will open new opportunities for market growth. Moreover, the authorities' imposition of tight rules surrounding reporting the effects of cosmetics is anticipated to have a favorable impact on the market's expansion. Also, the availability of bigger platforms and channels for reporting incidents related to the use of cosmetic products, coupled with an increase in incidents involving the use of hazardous materials in the manufacture of cosmetics, is estimated to have a positive impact on the market's growth on a global scale.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market growth stage is high, and the pace of the market growth is accelerating. These growth rates demonstrate a robust and accelerating expansion of the market, driven by factors such as the growing innovations in the aesthetic field and the rising usage of cosmetics globally.

Cosmetovigilance Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a significant level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity among leading players. This trend is driven by the desire to gain market share, the need to consolidate in a rapidly growing market, and the increasing strategic importance of cosmetovigilance services. The increasing demand for pre-marketing and post-marketing services, along with the introduction of innovative software solutions, is also contributing to the market's strategic significance and driving M&A initiatives among key industry players.

The market is subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny. This is due to global harmonization, standardizing reporting criteria, adapting to industry changes, and allocating clear responsibilities among stakeholders.The regulations surrounding cosmetovigilance are becoming increasingly stringent, particularly in the EU, where cosmetovigilance is a public health policy aimed at detecting and preventing adverse effects of cosmetic products. For instance, the EU has imposed restrictions on the use of certain preservatives, such as Methylisothiazolinone, in rinse-off products due to safety concerns.

Cosmetovigilance does not have a direct product substitute. It is the continuous monitoring of cosmetic products' safety, involving the detection and prevention of adverse effects. This surveillance is essential for ensuring the safety of cosmetic products and is a legal obligation under various regulations.

The market sees a high degree of geographical expansion strategies, with key players such as HUED and VisualDx employing this approach to broaden their service reach. This strategy enhances service availability across diverse geographic areas, ensuring a more extensive market presence. For instance, in April 2022, See My Skin, in collaboration with partners HUED and VisualDx, improved the outcomes of skin healthcare for people of color. Furthermore, the market is fragmented with presence of numerous companies in developed and developing economies.

Service Type Insights

Based on service type, the post-marketing service segment held the market with the largest revenue share of 23.7% in 2023 and grew at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period, owing to the increased need for cosmetovigilance services, to curb unfavorable effects (UEs) and substantial unfavorable effects (SUEs) associated with the use of cosmetics. Moreover, the process of analyzing and reporting the adverse reactions related to cosmetic products is mostly driven by the cosmetics industry. Furthermore, along with the adverse reaction reporting, post-marketing services also include case intake, case triage, and data entry and acquisition, also driving segment growth.

The pre-marketing segment is expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the need to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the cosmetic product. These services will gain traction due to strong cosmetic product pipelines. Furthermore, market expansion will also be aided by the rising need for several pre-marketing services, such as the product information file, cosmetic product safety report, security assessment, and others.

Phase Type Insights

Based on phase type, the Phase IV segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 75.76% in 2023. These phases serve as an extra layer of safety for the cosmetics undergoing clinical trials. Phase IV of clinical trials is crucial because it allows for the identification of potential adverse medication reactions. Due to extensive drug testing on a large patient base, the data gathered and evaluated during this stage is therefore expected to be of the utmost relevance following the commercialization of the product.

The Phase III segment is expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR during the forecast period. Product efficacy is determined and established during phase III trials. Before the products commercialization, these trials also offer more details about potential interactions, safety, and efficacy. Thus, rising importance of Phase III and high number of drugs in Phase III clinical trials is projected to fuel segment growth.

Category Insights

Based on category, the skincare segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 32.95% in 2023, owing to rising demand for face creams, sunscreens, and body lotions. Furthermore, face creams and moisturizers are getting more and more popular all over the world as people become more conscious of their physical appearance and more worried about skin conditions and skin related diseases. All these aforementioned factors are driving segment growth.

The perfume & deodorants segment is expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR during the forecast period. The expansion of this market segment can be attributed to the growing number of side effects associated with perfume & deodorants products. The demand for safe and clinically proven perfume products will rise due to common side effects of these products such as hair migraine headaches, dizziness, skin rash, and others, which is expected to propel the market growth.

Service Provider Insights

Based on service provider, the contract outsourcing segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 59.54% in 2023. Associated advantages of outsourcing, such as risk reduction, resource flexibility, a decrease in initial outlays, and a decrease in fixed expenses. Solutions like process design Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), PV audits, and other specialized services are offered by contract outsourcing businesses. Contract outsourcing also facilitates the efficient use of internal resources, speeds up trial approval, and reduces the complexity of clinical studies.

Global Cosmetovigilance market share and size, 2023

As a result of substantial R&D for the creation of new pharmaceuticals by large pharmaceutical and biotechnology businesses, the in-house segment is predicted to experience moderate expansion in the forecast period. In upcoming years, this is anticipated to provide this industry with significant development potential.

Regional Insights
