top cosmetics companies


Unilever Plc, L’Oréal S.A., Avon Products Inc, Kao Corporation, Revlon, Inc., The Estée Lauder Companies Inc., and Chanel, Inc, are the major players in the global market for cosmetics.


As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the global cosmetics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% in the forecast period of 2022-2027, owing to the growth in the e-commerce sector.


There has been a significant surge in cosmetic sales through online channels as a result of customers' decision to buy cosmetics online. These online channels reach a vast population that are a sizable audience for these products. The growing inclination of consumers towards plant-based skin products is expected to aid the market growth as they have no side effects.


The cosmetics market is further driven by the rising focus on self-grooming and personal appearance. An increase in per capita income, new marketing strategies, and attractive packaging are also responsible for the growth of the market.


The introduction of a wide range of products and rapid technological advancement give Europe a large market share. The increased usage of anti-ageing cosmetics and the rising demand for high-end, clean-label products in the region have both also contributed to the rise of the cosmetics sector in Europe.


It was announced in June 2021 that Unilever had acquired a leading skin care brand, Paula’s Choice, an industry leader in innovation, accessible jargon-free science, and cruelty-free products. A comprehensive ‘Ingredient Dictionary’ that deconstructs the research behind nearly 4,000 substances and ‘Expert Advice’, a curated online centre of skin care and ingredient knowledge, are two of Paula's Choice's potent resources for demystifying the science behind skin care.
