Premium Cosmetics Market Share

Previously, luxury products had been specifically targeted at a class comprised of affluent and elite consumers; however, this has changed recently. The rise in disposable income among emerging economies' urban populations and an increase in health concerns have led to an increase in demand for luxury products made using organic and high-quality ingredients. This trend of consumer behavior has essentially propelled the growth of the global market for luxury cosmetics.

In addition, internet penetration that has led to the expansion of e-commerce has also embraced the expansion of the luxury cosmetics market, as it provides convenience, international reach and allows consumers to choose from a wide range of options at the same time.
