F4E and the Beauty and Cosmetics Industry

In 2017, the European cosmetics market achieved an annual growth of 1.3% to 77.6 billion euros, which makes Europe remain the largest market for cosmetic and personal care products in the world.

Germany, France and the UK were the top three markets in Europe, standing at 13.6 billion euros; 11.3 billion euros and 11.1 billion euros respectively.

Worth some 20.7 billion euros, personal care led the European market, followed by hygiene products, which account for 19.64 billion euros. The two major categories were followed by hair products, worth 14.84 billion euros, and fragrance, which accounted for 11.93 billion euros. Lastly, makeup saw out the European market ranks at 11.17 billion euros.

Alongside acquisitions, water reduction and sustainability, customisation will be a key trend in 2019 for the beauty and cosmetics sector. Personalised beauty involves refining products to meet the specific requirements of the customer – even down to the individual unique end-user. Personalisation is no stranger to F4E who are ideally placed to meet this new demand throughout Europe.
