Beauty, Cosmetics & Fragrance Stores in the US

Over the five years to 2018, expansive product selections and skilled staff have driven revenue for the Beauty, Cosmetics and Fragrance Stores industry. An increase in youth-targeted cosmetics, the expansion of male-specific products and the reformulation of antiaging staples have given specialty beauty stores a new array of items to offer customers, and have helped revenue to grow. Over the next five years, per capita disposable income will continue to rise and industry revenue will similarly trend upward, as industry operators concurrently develop new, more ecofriendly products. However, competition from online retailers is anticipated to curb growth opportunities; thus, revenue is expected to rise at a slowe rate than over the past five years.

This industry comprises stores that primarily retail cosmetics, perfumes, toiletries and personal grooming products. Establishments include beauty supply stores, specialty cosmetics stores and fragrance stores.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
