Global Lipstick Market to Reach US$ 11.5 Billion by 2027, Driven by Demand for Natural Products

Published on Sep 06, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Lipstick Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global lipstick market reached a value of US$ 8.1 Billion in 2021. Lipsticks are one of the essential cosmetic products which help in enhancing the beauty and protecting the lips from harmful elements like sun, wind and dry air. They are generally made by combining castor oil, paraffin, beeswax, beetroot juice, Shikaki fruit powder, lemon oil, and orange and vanilla essence. Nowadays, manufacturers are introducing a wide range of herbal and organic lipsticks in different colors and customized cosmetic boxes. These lipsticks have the consistency of a gloss and long staying power with moisturizing properties, which help to prevent lip chapping.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Lipstick Market Trends:

One of the major factors driving the lipstick market growth is the rising beauty consciousness among the younger generation. Along with this, there has been an increase in inclination toward e-commerce platforms, which are adopting different marketing strategies to promote their products, such as celebrity endorsements and advertisements on social media. Furthermore, rising awareness about the usage of harmful ingredients in cosmetics has increased the demand for natural and safer products. Owing to this, market players are studying the usage of natural ingredients in their offerings. For instance, they are experimenting on the use of anthocyanins (pigments naturally found in many foods) as colorants in lipstick. Anthocyanins are not only harmless but also provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Besides this, market players are offering halal-certified lipsticks. These products are also attracting non-Muslim consumers, which in turn is boosting the sales of lipsticks across the globe. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 11.5 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.97% during 2022-2027.
