The Global Skincare Products Market was valued at USD 140.92 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.69% during the forecast period 2021 - 2026.

The COVID-19 pandemic influenced consumers' spending habits and purchase decisions leading to a slight decline in the market growth by 1.12% in 2020 owing to various governments imposing multiple measures intended to slowdown spread of the COVID-19.

Skincare has rocketed ahead of the global cosmetics market in recent years, encompassing categories like face and body care, cleansers, and sun protection. More skincare brands and retailers like Sephora, Kiehl's, Vichy, and Bobbi Brown are deploying solutions like virtual advisors to speak directly to consumers in real-time, reveal their needs and concerns, recommend products and guide them through the sales process.

The market is experiencing an accelerating demand for anti-aging products, like anti-wrinkle cream, face cream, serum, eye cream, and others.

In the United Kingdom, nearly 80% of consumers are aware of the impact of lifestyle stresses on the skin. Thus, consumers are inclined toward spending on skincare treatments at a younger age. They spend significant time and money on products that reduce the signs of aging. Hence, the increasing interest in anti-aging skincare products for youthful skin and skincare products enriched with vitamin-c, vitamin-E, collagen, and others to delay the aging, has resulted in an increasing number of manufacturers trying to penetrate this highly lucrative market through various strategies such as product innovation, mergers & acquisitions, and others. For instance, In 2019, San Francisco-based Gryphon Investors, announced the acquisition of anti-aging skincare brand RoC from Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. RoC has a 60+ year history in anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skincare, with more than 75 products sold in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
