Nail polish is available in a wide variety of types and colors to suit the requirements of a varied set of consumers. The demand for nail polish with natural ingredients is increasing rapidly owing to their various benefits to the nails, such as protecting nails because of the exclusion of harmful chemicals from it, further propelling their demand in the market. The regular nail polish segment accounted for the highest market share in the global revenue in 2021. Growing nail art trends, mainly among millennial groups, have risen the demand for nail polish in the market.

The e-commerce segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from the year 2023 to 2030. E-commerce retail sales are expected to witness substantial gains in the coming years on account of rising consumer spending, growing population, and wide availability of products. In addition, the introduction of mobile shopping apps for nail polish such as Amazon, Nykaa, and others along with the availability of safe and convenient payment gateways are contributing to the growth of the online retail industry.

In the year 2022, Asia-Pacific is accounted for the lion market share in the nail polish market and is also expected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. This is attributable to the rising number of nail art salons as well as celebrity influence in the countries like India, South Korea, Japan, and others. Moreover, some Asian countries like Indonesia and Vietnam are experiencing an increasing middle to elite income class in recent years.

Asian countries, particularly South Korea and Japan, are known for their innovative and high-quality cosmetic products, which have gained popularity not just in their own domestic markets, but also around the world. According to World’s Top Exports, in 2021 South Korea, Singapore, and Japan were among the top five biggest exporters of skincare goods and beauty cosmetics. The combination of culture, technological advancements, government support, and the popularity of K-Beauty and J-Beauty has contributed to the success of Asian countries in exporting cosmetics.
