Skincare Becomes A Health Care Issue For Consumers

October 11, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Skincare accounts for one-third of consumer spending on beauty care products worldwide, making it the largest and best-performing category in the world beauty market. Market analysts, however, predict consumer spending on skincare products will include solutions that were adopted from and developed outside the legacy beauty sector, including medicine, wellness, and technology. Aside from driving growth in skincare sales, these solutions have transformed skincare from a cosmetic issue into a “care and maintenance” concern.

Despite Economic Slowdown, China Remains World's Largest Market For Professional Skincare Products

October 8, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
China, Europe, and the United States are three of the largest markets for professional skincare products in the world, according to marketing research firm Kline. Data from the report “Professional Skin Care Global Series: Market Analysis and Opportunities” revealed ethnic and cultural influences are driving growth in China’s skincare market, with sales at spas, salons, beauty institutes, and physicians’ offices accounting for a bigger part of total market revenue. Chinese consumers prefer local brands, such as Amitabha, Chlitina, and Jourdeness; however, international brands, including SkinCeuticals, Decleor, and NeoStrata, are growing at rates higher than 8 percent and account for more than 8 percent of the total market. Worldwide, the professional skincare market is forecast to expand at a compound annual growth rate of almost 5 percent by 2019.
