NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Indian Personal care Opportunities - 2017


The Indian economy, Asia's third-largest, has been growing briskly at above 8 percent for last couple of years with occasional hiccups. In the context of the global scenario, despite the worldwide economic slump, the personal care product market in India is one of the fastest-growing beauty markets, valued at USD 24.4 billion in 2010.

The personal care industry is directly aligned with the population base. With the median age at 25
years, India is among the world's youngest nations, as compared to 43 years in Japan and 36 years in the US. In addition, the country's population base of 1.2 billion people is estimated to rise to 1.5 billion people by the end of 2030. Urbanization will also increase by 45 percent in the next 30 years.
India's 1.2 billion people can be roughly divided into 250 million households. Of late, the Indian
consumers are looking for newer shopping experiences and products. Consumer concentration has
shifted from traditional offerings to new generational ones, for instance demand for soap cakes to
liquid soaps, shaving creams to foams and gels.

It is quite evident that the cosmetics and toiletries industry in the developed markets is close to
saturation and growth has slowed down. Meanwhile, countries such as India, with its growing
economy, offer a lucrative market for large multinationals. As per a recent study by the
Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), the Indian color cosmetics and skin care markets have been increasing for the last two years and have recorded a growth rate of 20 percent in 2010. So this market already experiences the entry of several brands, including MAC Cosmetics, Channel,
Givenchy, Versace, Red Earth, The Body Shop, Christian Breton, ArtDeco and MAX Factor during this period. Several of the foreign players are expanding; for instance, Baccarose is expanding its Parcos brand cosmetics stores, as are the MKP and Cosmos brands.

The objective of the report is to state that it is just the right time for global cosmetics and skin care
companies to participate in the growth story. Some researchers anticipate 25 percent growth rate in the Indian personal care industry in the next few years. According to the Emerging Market Forum, the per capita income of India is expected to increase by about 18 times by 2039, while disposable income for households is estimated to grow three times by 2025. Globalization, rise in incomes, greater awareness about self needs and a change in consumption patterns of households are the accelerating factors behind this rapid growth. However, even with double-digit growth rates,
penetration of cosmetics and toiletries products is very low. Current per capita expenditure on
cosmetics is about USD 1, compared to USD 36.65 in other Asian countries. This low market
penetration for cosmetics and personal care products offers an opportunity to service 1.2 billion
people of the country. There is a huge scope for international and national Spa chain as Southern
India has the most of the spas of the country.

The second big opportunity is that some major European cosmetic retailers are looking for
distributors and third-party manufacturers to set up joint ventures in the country. In fact after China,
India is being seen as a strong manufacturing hub and a good source for natural ingredients. The
country's personal care sector is characterized by high volumes and low prices of cosmetic products.
The ultimate winners would be those that ensure better value offerings to meet the needs of the
Indian consumer.
