The global functional cosmetics market reached US$ XX million in 2020 and is expected to reach US$ XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2021-2028.
Functional cosmetics include skincare, anti-aging and hair care products, among others, incorporating functional ingredients with properties that impact the final cosmetic product's form, texture, consistency, aroma and delivery mechanism. The functional ingredient is inactive substances that help over-the-counter medications work by giving primary skin benefits and assisting the active ingredient's performance. Surfactants, conditioning and moisturizing agents, colorants, fragrance compounds, and other products are commonly found in functional cosmetics. In a skincare formulation, functional cosmetic components are frequently thought of as carriers for transferring active or performance elements.
The rapid growth of the healthcare sector and the demand for functional cosmetics in the respective market act as a major market booster that drives the global functional cosmetics market. However, the difficulty in manufacturing high-performance functional cosmetics is expected to restrain the respective market.
Functional cosmetics are specialty chemicals added to cosmetic skincare products to improve their functionality. Ingredients including anti-aging agents, exfoliators, conditioning agents and UV agents are a few examples of multi-functional products utilized in functional cosmetics.
Natural functional cosmetics are getting more popular among consumers and manufacturers. The rise of environmental and health awareness may be seen in the behavior of both manufacturers and consumers. The data obtained in Hungary using an online questionnaire in 2018 revealed that health and environmental awareness is expected to become a significant trend for producer and consumer behavior in the functional cosmetics market.
The demand for better functionality and various benefits from a single product is the primary reason behind the growing utilization of natural multi-functional ingredients in functional cosmetics. For instance, creams and post-shave moisturizers that offer UVA and UVB radiation protection currently utilize natural multi-functional ingredients such as sandalwood, sesame seed oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, saffron, jojoba oil, shea butter and vitamin E oil that offer skincare benefits with sun protection features.
Natural functional cosmetics are expected to have a much broader palette in the future due to the growing demand for green cosmetics components that don't harm the body in the long run and ecologically friendly production processes.
Functional cosmetic products are currently under strict scrutiny in terms of the ingredient utilized in them due to the serval negative impact of these ingredients on the body. For instance, mercury utilized as a functional cosmetic ingredient to reduce black spots and improve skin tone is found to have a seriously destructive impact on the brain, kidney and liver. As a result, governments and regulatory bodies globally, such as the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, U.S., have imposed stringent regulations regarding the ingredient utilized in functional cosmetics. As a result, a paradigm shift toward utilizing natural alternatives to address the concerns connected with synthetic cosmetics that are harsh on the skin is gaining global momentum.
Even though the plans to escape stringent government regulations and address the global change in consumer preference, by employing natural ingredients appear as an easy solution, the high cost of natural ingredients could increase the final price of the cosmetic products, which could lower the demand for functional cosmetic products, thereby hampers the growth of the global functional cosmetic market. Therefore, stringent government regulations associated with functional cosmetic ingredients and a high price range for organic ingredients is a major restraint that could lower the overall market prospects of the global functional cosmetics market.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic caused disruptions in the functional cosmetics market's production, supply chain of raw materials and finished products and caused an overall all demand decrease in demand, due to the growing health and beauty awareness, market boom of e-commerce and influx of social media, the functional cosmetics market stayed afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the functional cosmetics industry will continue to be appealing to customers in the long run. Since the COVID-19 problem accelerated the trends such as the expansion in the use of functional cosmetics among the middle class and the use of e-commerce, the global functional cosmetics market is expected to return to its former glory once the restrictions associated with the pandemic subsides. Further, as consumers globally demonstrate the simple joys of a "self-care Sunday" or a lipstick brush before a Zoom conference to bring them comfort, the functional cosmetics market would expect a rise in demand.
Furthermore, as the concept of "beauty" was expanding, becoming increasingly global and interwoven with people's sense of well-being, the respective tendencies are unlikely to change due to the COVID-19 and the functional cosmetic market would make a major come back in the post-pandemic scenario.
The global functional cosmetics market is segmented on type, ingredient, form, application, end-user and region.
Based on application, the global functional cosmetics market is segmented into skincare, hair care and others.
The skincare sector is expected to dominate the application segment of the global functional cosmetics market. The use of functional cosmetics in skincare applications primarily addresses issues such as UV protection, wrinkles, blemishes, acne, aging and frown lines, among others. Because humans have a universal need to appear well, skincare products are highly demanded globally. The importance of having a healthy, beautiful complexion is a primary driving force behind the rising demand for beauty and skincare products. An increase in male-specific cosmetic products and a growing population are likely to drive up demand for the skincare cosmetics segment in the global functional cosmetics market.
Due to a rising emphasis on personal aesthetics combined with a rapidly aging population striving to remain youthful, Europe is predicted to account for considerable revenue shares and dominate the regional segment of the global functional cosmetic market. Over the projected period, the functional cosmetic market is expected to rise due to an increase in the desire of younger people to prevent the earliest signs of aging and the higher price for functional cosmetics in Europe. Moreover, the region's inclination toward natural & organic personal care and easily biodegradable products could also be considered a factor for the region's dominance over others in the respective market.
The global functional cosmetics industry is extremely saturated in terms of the number of global and local players. As there are many significant competitors, the market may be considered fragmented.
