Firm foundation: Export growth has supported revenue despite falling consumer confidence

Operators in the Perfume and Cosmetics Manufacturing industry produce a range of health and beauty products, including perfumes, make-up, haircare, skincare and oral hygiene products. Many of the products manufactured are considered a necessity, though the price and quality of the product purchased tends to be discretionary. Despite challenging operating conditions, the industry has recorded modest growth over the past five-year period. Product innovation and changing consumer tastes have been key drivers behind this expansion, as environmental and health concerns have driven strong growth in organic and eco-friendly product segments.Industry revenue is expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 1.6% over the five years through 2019-20, reaching £5.1 more.
