Share Article

The Cosmetic and Personal Care Product Manufacturing industry in China has shown strong growth over the past decade, says IBISWorld. However, Chinese cosmetic and personal care product manufacturers mostly compete in lower-end markets, while the high-end market is dominated by global groups. In the face of new regulations and increasing competition, domestic companies are currently upgrading their equipment and improving product quality.

China has become one of the largest cosmetics markets in the world and ranking second in Asia after Japan.

The Cosmetic and Personal Care Product Manufacturing industry in China has shown strong growth over the past decade, says IBISWorld. China has become one of the largest cosmetics markets in the world and ranks second in Asia after Japan. Industry revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 9.1% in the five years through 2012 to an estimated $12.1 billion.

Chinese cosmetic and personal care product manufacturers mostly compete in lower-end markets, while the high-end market is dominated by global groups such as P&G, Unilever, and L'Oreal. Foreign enterprises have acquired many domestic brands in recent years. In 2011, Coty Inc. became the largest shareholder of TJoy. In 2008, German manufacturer Beiersdorf acquired 85.0% of shares in C-bons Daily Chemical Co. Ltd. and Johnson & Johnson acquired Beijing Dabao. Foreign-funded companies are estimated to generate over half of total industry revenue, according to IBISWorld research. Nevertheless, no firm, domestic or foreign, has a dominant market share.

Only a few Chinese brands, such as Herborist, are able to compete in the high-end market. In 2011, the State Food and Drug Administration launched strict regulations regarding the safe usage of ingredients and additives and 85 manufacturers in the Cosmetic and Personal Care Product Manufacturing industry in China were forced to stop production. In the face of these new regulations and increasing competition, domestic companies are currently upgrading their equipment and improving product quality, says IBISWorld. In addition, manufacturers are constantly developing new products to expand market share. Organic, natural and hypoallergenic products have become very popular in the Chinese market.
