Supplementary notes

The Indian fairness cream market was worth about 450 million U.S. dollars. Aspiring to have fairer skin is common in the country while demand for fair-complexioned brides and grooms act as a catalyst to the phenomenon. It is called the "Snow White Syndrome", because the sales of whitening creams outsell those of Coco-Cola and tea.

Figures may not not add up to 100 due to rounding off.
