Saudi Arabia Cosmetics Market Trends:

Rising Premium Brands

The inflating disposable income levels of individuals across the country are escalating the demand for luxury, which, in turn, is propelling the market. According to the report published by IMARC, the Saudi Arabia luxury market size reached US$ 9.2 Billion in 2023. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 22.5 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1% during 2024-2032. Moreover, the report titled “Decoding the Beauty Consumer in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council),” released in July 2023 by the Chalhoub Group, one of the Dubai headquartered luxury goods retailers and distributors, stated that individuals across Saudi Arabia are the highest spenders on luxury cosmetic products in the Middle East. Consequently, the rising number of renowned luxury brands is propelling the market. For example, in October 2023, one of the luxury beauty brands, Charlotte Tilbury, opened its very first store at the Red Sea Mall, Saudi Arabia. Additionally, in September 2023, Saudi Arabia’s iconic television host, presenter, and media personality Sara Murad announced the launch of her luxurious fragrance line. Furthermore, aligned with Saudi Vision 2030, Istituto Marangoni and the Saudi Fashion Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in April 2024 to enable both international and local brands to develop new creative and managerial skills in cosmetics, fashion and luxury, visual merchandising that can enhance the luxury system in Saudi Arabia. This will continue to drive the Saudi Arabia cosmetics market demand in the coming years.

Introduction of Customizable Solutions

Consumers across the country are widely looking for innovative cosmetic products with advanced formulations, as well as customizable beauty solutions tailored to individual needs. For example, in June 2022, Urban Company, Asia’s tech-enabled home services marketplace, entered into a partnership with Baheya, one of the beauty services providers in Saudi Arabia, to enhance its product offerings. Moreover, the emerging online fashion marketplace that connects brands, customers, and fashion stylists with each other is also acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. For instance, in May 2022, KSA-Based Taffi raised approximately US$ 2 Million in a series A seed round led by Bahrain-based retail firm Al-Rashed Group (ARG) and Saudi Arabia-based venture capital firm Impact46 to provide personalized styling solutions to individuals in the MENA region.  Additionally, customizable cosmetic solutions can be adopted in daily beauty routines that serve both aesthetic and practical purposes, thereby contributing to personal skincare, grooming, and self-expression. This, in turn, is positively influencing the Saudi Arabia cosmetics market outlook. For example, in January 2023, MBC Media Solutions (MMS) collaborated with Sephora to customize a backstage beauty hub where Saudi Idol contestants created iconic looks every week with the Sephora Pro Team.

Emerging Beauty Trends

The rising popularity of adopting sustainable, halal, cruelty-free, and inclusive cosmetic products is strengthening the market. For example, MZN Bodycare, one of the brands in Saudi Arabia, is committed to make natural and vegan cosmetic products more accessible to consumers across the country. Besides this, the emerging trend of using modern skincare essentials is also stimulating the market. For instance, in April 2024, Luxury Ayurveda skincare and wellness brand Forest Essentials announced its plan to expand its presence in GCC countries, including Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the data from Google searches and YouTube queries revealed a surge in skincare-related searches in Saudi Arabia. With over 300 million skincare-related searches in 2022, the skincare category searched grew by approximately 71% from 2019 to 2022. It also showcased the inclination among consumers across the country to discover new brands. This is one of the Saudi Arabia cosmetics market's recent opportunities. Additionally, in June 2023, experts from L'Oreal and Google organized a panel discussion that revolved around the changing trends and key factors to keep in mind while addressing the beauty industry market in Saudi Arabia. Apart from this, the elevating consumer awareness towards cosmetics procedures is expected to bolster the market across the country in the coming years. For example, the study published by Cureus in April 2024 to assess the knowledge and practices with regard to cosmetic procedures among the general population in the western region of Saudi Arabia revealed a total of 190 individuals had prior knowledge of cosmetic procedures. Of the non-surgical cosmetic treatments that people are most familiar with, 37.9% mentioned filler injections. Besides this, the most popular surgical cosmetic surgery was rhinoplasty (73.6%) and liposuction (22%).
