The country’s cosmetics and cosmeceutical market is expected to register annual growth of 25 per cent touching US $20 billion by 2025, according to industry experts here.
“The Indian cosmeceutical and cosmetics industry has an overall market standing of US $6.5 billion from a global market of US $274 billion. It is expected to grow to US $20 billion by 2015 at a compounded rate of 25 per cent,” Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India was quoted by PTI as saying.
According to a PTI report: The rising awareness of beauty products, increasing premium on personal grooming, changes in consumption patterns and lifestyles and improved purchasing power among women are expected to boost the industry.
The market will maintain healthy growth due to rising preference for specialised cosmetic products such as organic, herbal and ayurvedic products. Principal areas that are expected to grow include colour cosmetics, fragrances, specialised skin care and make-up cosmetics, he said.
The Indian industry is growing rapidly at a rate of 13-18 per cent, more than that of US or European markets.
