The Cosmetics, Perfume and Toiletries Manufacturing industry includes companies involved in the manufacture of cosmetic and toilet preparation products, including cosmetics, perfumes, deodorants, lotions, creams and hair-care products. The industry is relatively small, and accounted for just 2.7% of Australia's Basic Chemical and Chemical Product Manufacturing subdivision (on the basis of revenue) in 2012-13. One of its defining characteristics is its high degree of globalisation reflecting the dominant position that global beauty brands command in the downstream retail beauty sector. A large number of cosmetics and perfumes are imported as fully formulated and packaged products.
Companies in this industry manufacture cosmetic and toilet preparation products. Key products include cosmetics, perfumes (natural and synthetic), deodorants, lotions, creams and hair-care products. Raw materials are sourced from other chemical industry segments. The finished products are then sold at various retail outlets, including supermarkets, department stores, specialty cosmetics stores and pharmacies.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
