Market Overview

The Qatar cosmetic products market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2020 - 2027).

The beauty and personal market, including functional cosmetics and skincare ingredients in regions, witnessed a notable decline in sales, owing to the disruption caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. First-quarter sales of 2020 for cosmetics products manufactures were weak, and there were widespread store closures. For instance, According to Loreal, with brands such as SkinCeutical, the consumption of beauty products (including cosmetics and skin care) over the period was strongly impacted by the closure of millions of points of sale (specialty stores, perfumeries, department stores, airport stores, etc.), which caused a real crisis of supply rather than demand, with consumers temporarily unable to purchase products and services.

The market is majorly driven by the young working population of the country, among whom the consciousness of physical appearance is more and who is willing to investing in grooming.

Moreover, consumer demand for enhanced functionality and eco-friendliness in cosmetic design is resulting in exciting innovations in the packaging and design of cosmetics products. However, factors such as limited production and price fluctuation of stevia leaf in the country are restraining the market growth of the region.
