The health and beauty industry is a highly competitive yet profitable market. Which is why it’s no surprise that personal care products and beauty retailers were worth $493.34 billion in 2018 and are projected to grow to a whopping $756.63 billion by 2026, according to a report from Fior Markets.

“The global beauty and personal care products market is expected to grow from USD 493.34 billion in 2018 to USD 756.63 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.81% during the forecast period from 2019-2026. The growth is mainly driven by the young and aspirational population who want to invest in grooming, looking beautiful and maintaining their health in the process.”

Due to adverse effects of the coronavirus pandemic along with the recent economic slowdown, the past year was challenging for all industries. The cosmetic industry, however, shows resilience. L’Oréal, a leading global beauty company, estimates that the skincare industry is expected to grow 10% in 2022 and will account for 34% of the global beauty market by 2024.

Like all industries, many cosmetics manufacturing and beauty companies have separate and dedicated systems for each department that have distinct processes. Unsurprisingly, projects that involve multiple departments are tricky due to lack of integration and too many resources to maintain. Businesses utilizing point systems like separate accounting, inventory, supply chain, and CRM software find themselves trying to piece everything together with APIs and clunky integrations. This results in duplication of efforts, manual data entry, data silos, poor reporting & forecasting capabilities, and lost revenue.
