Saudi Arabia Perfume Market Stimulated by Demand for Unisex Fragrances

The Saudi Arabia perfume market has experienced a positive growth over the past several years. This can be accredited to the rising disposable incomes along with the shift towards personal grooming and adoption of western blends of fragrances.



IMARC Group’s latest report, entitled “Saudi Arabia Perfume Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, finds that the Saudi Arabia perfume market reached a value of US$ 1.6 Billion in 2017. Perfumes form an integral part of the Saudi Arabia’s tradition and cultural heritage due to which the consumers are very selective in choosing perfumes and spend a significant amount of their incomes on these products. Over the years, Saudi Arabia has emerged as a major hub for creating innovative perfumes with a particular focus on exotic ouds and fine variants. Moreover, as perfumes and fragrances aid in improving mood and reducing stress, the emergence of aromachology and use of fragrances in therapeutic applications are providing a positive thrust to the market growth. The market has also gained traction as the manufacturers are launching exotic and unisex fragrances in order to diversify their product portfolio and target the affluent consumers.

In Saudi Arabia, the consumers prefer to purchase halal cosmetics as they contain ingredients that are permitted under the Islamic law. Further, the increasing employment opportunities coupled with rising purchasing power of the consumers in Saudi Arabia is expected to accelerate the personal grooming trend and, in turn, the growth of the perfume market.

Other factors such as the emergence of commercial television and internet as major advertising platforms, innovative marketing strategies, urbanization, and proliferation of shopping centers have led to a shift in the consumer preferences for luxury goods in the region.
