Industry Insights

The global halal cosmetics market size was estimated at USD 23.03 billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 12.3% over the forecast years. Considerable Islamic population base across the globe that is willing to pay premium prices for Halal-certified beauty products is anticipated to drive the product demand over the forecast period. Growing awareness regarding the use of cosmetic products is also likely to be one of the key factors driving the market. Since Muslims constitute a considerable part of the global population, thus the mainstream cosmetic industry is now focusing on the development of halal-certified products. As a result, manufacturers have started introducing Sharia-compliant products.

India has a high Islamic population and ranks third in the world. Rapid urbanization and growing standards of living have boosted the cosmetics market in India. Apart from the domestic market, India is also considered to be the hub of exports for halal products from the UAE, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia. Information regarding the ingredients used in cosmetics is not easily available at times and brands often lack transparency with their customers.

India halal cosmetics market

Health-related diseases, such as genital abnormalities and breast cancer, caused by cosmetics have given rise to various concerns regarding the ingredients. In many countries, manufacturers use lard or pork as a cheaper substitute for oil. The use of lard is a serious offense for Abrahamic religions such as Islam and Judaism. Hence, several detection techniques have been introduced for detecting the presence of fats, oils, and gelatin in cosmetics. Some technologies include Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GCMS).

Growing demand for Halal-certified and Sharia-compliant product is also boosting the market growth. Although the production costs of halal cosmetics are usually higher than regular products, consumers are willing to pay extra due to their strong religious beliefs. Majority of the Major Muslim populated countries, such as Pakistan and Arab countries, are developing, price-sensitive economies. Regional manufacturers have therefore developed small packaging products at lower costs to avoid a one-time investment.

Product Insights

Rising awareness regarding the benefits of using skincare products is anticipated to drive the skincare segment growth. Most cosmetics contain ingredients that cause skin irritation and may have a long-term effect on health. As a result, halal cosmetics have proven to be an alternative and effective solution for consumers. Increasing disposable income coupled with the adoption of modern lifestyle is presumed to be the major factor behind the segment’s development.

There are some vegan varieties that extend the market opportunity for the non-Muslim population as well. For example, Eco trail, an Indian company and U.K.-based PHB Ethical Beauty offer products that are not only Halal certified but also cruelty-free and free from harmful substances. This trend is being followed by leading global brands, such as The Body Shop and Forest Essentials, which, in turn, is supporting the market expansion.

Regional Insights

Southeast Asian region is projected to witness the most lucrative growth over the forecast period. Factors, such as a rise in spending on personal care products, awareness regarding the hazards of transdermal cosmetics, and demand for eco-friendly cosmetics have fueled the product growth in this regional market. Cosmetic companies present in this region are trying to consolidate their position by offering a wide range of products. Companies are leveraging the reach of social media for spreading awareness among the customers and to connect with their target audiences (young adults and female customers).

Global halal cosmetics market

The primary factor driving demand in the Europe market is the unique packaging style developed by Dutch entrepreneurs, who started the idea of halal cosmetics in this region. The market has witnessed significant growth in western countries, such as U.S. and European Union countries, owing to the increasing Muslim population and their need for safe and naturally manufactured beauty products.
