Saudi Arabia Cosmetics and Personal Care Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers 

The Increasing Penetration of Social Media is Driving the Market Forward

Social media plays a very crucial role in forming the opinion of people and driving their attention and awareness towards any brand. Therefore, companies are constantly using social media for creating brand awareness. Saudi Arabia is one of the countries with the largest social media user base. They also have one of the highest real-time users of different social media platforms. Several cosmetics and personal care companies have been leveraging social media influencers to attract the local target demographic towards their cosmetics and beauty products. As these influencers share their beauty and skincare regime, it may affect the potential customer’s decision and opinion towards their products.

The demand for Dermo-cosmetic Products is Gaining Traction

Dermo-cosmetic products are gaining popularity in the market because they provide both beautification and proper skincare. Furthermore, the skin is continuously exposed to damage as a result of toxic UV rays and rising emissions, resulting in a dull and exhausted appearance. As a result, there is a growing demand for dermatologically tested products that provide radiance to the skin while still making it look good and healthy. Cosmetics that are used for longer periods can harm the skin. That’s why, the popularity of dermo-cosmetic products is rising among the consumer base, propelling the market growth during the forecast period.

Restraints

Inclination towards Home Remedies for Skin

Even though the use of beauty products is high and even growing, the general public nevertheless believes that using them daily permanently harms the skin. Due to this reason, many consumers are gradually shifting towards natural and home remedies to keep their skin healthy. Therefore, companies must do better and increase their efforts in marketing their cosmetic products and enhancing the image that surrounds beauty products in light of this aspect.

Impact of Covid-19 on Saudi Arabia Cosmetics and Personal Care Market

The outbreak of COVID-19 had prompted Saudi Arabia to declare a state of emergency ahead of the Eid holiday, which is one of the biggest festivals in the country. This heavily impacted the cosmetics and personal care business in the country. The cosmetics market revenue abruptly declined as people were compelled to stay at homes. Their purchasing power declined, due to which prioritizing essential items became a necessity.

Moreover, the pandemic halted not only the demand, but also the manufacturing and distribution of cosmetics and personal care products. It specifically affected the regional companies whose primary target market was locals. The demand for skincare and other personal care items increased as people stayed at home and had more time on their hands. As a result, the industry witnessed the rise of the "self-care" trend and customer preference for natural and herbal products.

Based on product type, the Saudi Arabia cosmetics and personal care market is segmented into skincare, haircare, oral care, bath & shower products, men’s grooming products, and fragrances & perfumes.

Furthermore, due to the prevalence of certain beauty standards, facial and skincare products are always high in demand and further gaining traction in the forecast period.

However, with ease of access and more product option availability, the online segment is also growing at an impressive rate and is expected to witness substantial growth in the forecast period.
