Global Personal Care Emollients Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A personal care emollient is a substance that is applied to the skin to keep it hydrated and help protect it from environmental factors. Emollients are important for keeping the skin healthy and preventing dryness, cracking, and other damage.

Synthetic Emollient:

Synthetic emollient is a type of skin care product that is used to reduce the water content in the skin. They are also known as occlusive agents or lipophilic solvents. Synthetic emollients are usually made from petrochemicals and have high molecular weight which helps them to penetrate more easily into the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, thus increasing their effectiveness over natural oils.

Natural Emollient:

Natural emollients are those ingredients that are used as a base for cosmetics or personal care products to provide the desired texture and skin feel. They have minimal side effects, which makes them safe for use in cosmetic formulations. The demand for natural emollients is increasing due to their excellent moisturizing properties, which is one of the major factors driving market growth globally.

Application Insights:

The body care segment accounted for the largest share in 2015 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increasing use of emollients in skincare products, such as creams, lotions, and bath oils is expected to drive demand over the forecast period. In addition, growing consumer awareness regarding healthy skin coupled with rising spending capacity of consumers in emerging economies including China and India is expected to propel product demand over the next eight years.

Cosmetic application was estimated as high revenue-generating segment owing to increasing utilization of emollients for formulation purposes by manufacturers across all regions especially Latin America and Asia Pacific. Increasing consumer inclination towards anti aging properties coupled with a surge in disposable income levels has resulted into increased utilization of cosmetic products containing natural ingredients which are further anticipated to fuel market growth during future periods.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global personal care emollients market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. Increasing demand for cosmetic products and growing awareness regarding skincare are some of the key factors driving growth in this region.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth during the same period owing to increasing awareness about natural ingredients used in cosmetics among consumers, especially millennials, which has resulted into increased demand for natural based products over synthetic ones.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of emollients among consumers
  • Rising demand for natural and organic emollients products
  • Growing popularity of personal care products that are free from parabens, sulfates, and other harsh chemicals
  • Proliferation of online retail channels that offer a wide range of emollient-based personal care products at competitive prices
  • Innovation in product formulation and packaging by manufacturers to cater to the needs of different consumer segments
