Breakdown of the cosmetic market worldwide from 2011 to 2017, by geographic zone

Exclusive Premium Statistic

Breakdown of the cosmetic market worldwide 2011-2017, by geographic zone This statistic depicts the breakdown of the cosmetic market worldwide from 2011 to 2017, by geographic zone. In 2016, North America made up 24 percent of the global cosmetic market. In 2015, the total global cosmetic market was worth approximately 203 billion euros.
Global Cosmetic Market

Societies throughout history have employed various forms of cosmetics and toiletries to improve appearance, scent and health. Ancient civilizations used cosmetics for various purposes such as religious rituals and class demarcation. Though used for different purposes, cosmetics have remained a historical constant from the Ancient Egyptians to modern-day society.

Non-western beauty cultures are becoming more influential as new countries dominate rankings; consumers beyond North America and Europe are remaking the beauty market in their own image and likeness. As a result of this shift to new regions, beauty cultures which are quite different from the mature European and North American markets will play a much more influential role. Ethnic and cultural diversity shape consumers beauty rituals and product priorities. Likewise, diversity and variety have become the norm within the global cosmetics market.

With the cosmetics industry earning record revenues, with niche sectors, such as men’s grooming and natural/organic cosmetics rapidly gaining market share, and with social media, eco-consciousness and cause-based consumerism greatly impacting product purchasing decisions, the cosmetics industry is an ever-changing behemoth that’s become integral to the global economy.
