Analyst Review

After sun care products are largely consumed among population living near coastlines. The frequency of purchase for natural/organic after sun care products has increased significantly due to varied benefits over chemical based products. Consumers are now more aware about the effects of harmful UV rays and skin cancer, which has resulted into strong demand for sun care products. There is a strong demand for multifunctional sun care products by consumers in the premium segment. Multifunctional product offerings by leading brands is anticipated to provide a competitive edge over private label brands in the future. The effective supply chain management and control over counterfeiting activities is certainly expected to benefit the global players.

The rise in the popularity of e-commerce shopping in the personal care industry is estimated to provide growth opportunities for the market. Private label brands and SMEs sell their products across the world through online distribution channel, which benefits them in many ways.
