    What are Premium Cosmetics?

    Premium cosmetics refer to high-quality, luxury beauty products that are typically priced higher than conventional cosmetics. These products are often associated with well-established brands renowned for their exceptional formulations, advanced technologies, and superior ingredients. Premium cosmetics emphasize product performance, and efficacy, and often boast innovative features, setting them apart from regular beauty offerings. Customers are willing to invest more in these products due to their perceived higher value, exclusivity, and the promise of enhanced results. Premium cosmetics encompass a wide range of products, including skincare, makeup, haircare, and fragrance items. Their target audience is typically discerning consumers who seek luxurious experiences, specialized solutions, and premium packaging that reflects the brand's status and commitment to excellence.

    Market Dynamics

    Increasing awareness regarding premium ingredients and their positive effect on the skin is creating a consumer shift from conventional or mass-produced cosmetics to premium cosmetics.

    Also, the growing preference for premium cosmetics for problems such as acne, age spots, and pigmentation is likely to boost the market expansion. Furthermore, the demand for imported and branded cosmetics is mainly driven by brand name, price, and product safety, which offers ample opportunities to the industry participants. However, the growing number of counterfeit products sold is a restraining factor to the premium cosmetics market growth.

    COVID-19 Impact

    The COVID-19 pandemic has substantially affected the cosmetic industry across the globe with the temporary or permanent shutdown of production units. L’Oréal witnessed sharp declines in Western Europe with sales down at 7.7%, 3.7% in the Asia Pacific, and 4.8% in North America. Moreover, due to the limited movement of people and work-from-home lifestyle, women and men are confined in their homes with their work, which results in the demand for makeup and related premium cosmetics, affecting the market expansion.

    Segments Analysis

    Product Trends

    Based on product, the global premium cosmetic market has been categorized into skincare, haircare, makeup, fragrance, and others.

    • Among these, the makeup segment is likely to register the highest CAGR during the review period.
    • This is mainly attributed to the growing demand for natural and organic color cosmetics to avoid skin irritation and infection.
    • Also, the availability of sweatproof and waterproof products particularly for humid and hot weather conditions is accelerating the demand for lipsticks, foundations, nail paints, powders, and bronzers, thus augmenting the segment growth.

    Regional Analysis

    By region, the Asia Pacific market held the highest market share and is estimated to register the fastest CAGR during the assessment period.

    • The regional growth is mainly ascribed due to the increasing number of women working for the population and the increasing purchasing power of the middle-class population.
    • Also, increasing financial independence among both men and women coupled with rising beauty consciousness propels regional market growth.
    • China is the leading contributor due to the presence of a large number of foreign players.
