The premium beauty and personal care products market soared to a value of US$ 496.63 Billion in 2022. Projections suggest an even more impressive growth, with an anticipated 4.6% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) propelling it to US$ 780.16 Billion by 2032, according to a recent report by Fact.MR. This surge is fueled by a heightened emphasis on health and self-care, spurred by the increasing focus on preventive healthcare due to a rise in various ailments. Moreover, the surge in demand for luxury items directly correlates with the influence of social media and a growing fascination among people for such products, often inspired by their favorite social influencers.

The burgeoning consciousness among consumers regarding their appearance contributes significantly to the expansion of the premium beauty and personal care products market. Millennials, in particular, are incorporating skincare, makeup, and hair care into their daily grooming rituals. The surge in cosmetics featuring natural, non-toxic, and organic elements further fuels this market growth. The escalating preference for organic ingredients worldwide propels the demand for organic personal care products, anticipated to steer market growth in the foreseeable future. Moreover, increasing awareness of the detrimental effects associated with chemicals and synthetic products acts as a catalyst for the premium beauty and personal care products market’s acceleration. The inclination of most consumers towards products bearing natural or organic labels serves as a pivotal driver in propelling market expansion.
Furthermore, the rising inclination toward night skin repair creams, sun care products, invigorating fragrances, hair dyes, and related items is anticipated to fuel the demand for premium beauty and personal care products. For example, findings from the ‘Sun Safe Behavior Survey 2018’ by the Canadian Dermatology Association revealed a notable increase in year-round sunscreen users in Canada, rising from 17% in 2015 to 26% in 2018.
Health concerns on the upswing serve as a pivotal driver for market growth, complemented by the global expansion of e-commerce, granting consumers international access to a diverse array of options. This, among other factors, propels the luxury cosmetics market forward. Additionally, the surge in demand for halal cosmetics, particularly from the Middle East, is poised to contribute significantly to the market’s expansion in the forecast period.
The heightened consciousness among consumers regarding personal appearance stands as another catalyst for market growth. Millennials, in particular, increasingly incorporate skincare, makeup, and hair care products into their daily grooming rituals. The advent of cosmetics formulated with natural, non-toxic, and organic ingredients has further augmented the market’s reach and appeal.
