Industry Insights

The global skin care products market size was valued at 134.8 billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2019 to 2025 on account of the rapidly expanding global cosmetics industry. Escalating demand for face creams, sunscreens, and body lotions across the globe is expected to have a positive impact on the market over the forecast period. Moreover, the growing e-commerce sector is anticipated to boost the market growth further. Technological and product innovations have led to an increased demand for skincare products.

There is a wide variety of products available on the market including sunscreens, anti-aging creams, body lotions, and skin brightening creams. Rising awareness regarding the various benefits of using personal care products has resulted in a rise in their demand over the last few years. This has also boosted the demand for natural and organic skincare products, making it a major sector in the cosmetics and wellness industry. Organic products are derived from natural resources and are free from harmful chemicals. Growing awareness regarding the adverse effects of synthetic counterparts has contributed to an increase in the demand for these products.

This has prompted major manufacturers to focus more on research and development activities and formulate new products, resulting in the growth of green chemistry and the green sector. Shifting consumer preference toward natural and organic goods coupled with growing usage of environmentally safe products is also expected to fuel the market development. Organic product manufacturers are spending more time, money, and resources on research and development of organic products, which has resulted in the growth of green chemistry and the green sector. Increased usage of sunblock, anti-tan, and anti-aging creams is another key factor augmenting industry growth.

Also, demand for moisturizing lotions, facial wipes, hair styling gels, and creams is expected to spur the cosmetics sector, thereby driving the global market growth. Skincare product demand, specifically in the organic segment, is expected to maintain medium market penetration due to a surge in innovation. An increasing need for natural quick-fix solutions for various problems that arise from pollution and other factors is projected to have a positive impact on the market over the forecast period. Surfactants, conditioning agents, colorants, neem, xanthan gum, and fish oil are the key raw materials used in the manufacturing of high-quality face creams, body lotions, and other beauty products.
