Impact of COVID-19 on Functional Cosmetics Market

The global pandemic has affected almost every sector in the world. The functional cosmetics market has shown negative growth as it was affected due to disruptions in the global supply chain and fall in the oil prices. This situation arise due to fall in demand from the cosmetics industry. Europe is the largest region in terms of value for the functional cosmetics market.

In Asia Pacific, a reduction in cosmetics was seen from South Asia constituting countries, such as India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Central Asian countries. This lowered the demand for functional cosmetics in the region. China holds a major market share in the functional cosmetics market in the Asia Pacific region but was severely affected by the pandemic initially. Millions of people were quarantined, thus putting a pause on all supply chains dependent on China. The travel bans and lockdown imposed in most of the major cities in China had reduced the production of oil in the country. It has also affected the workforce community without which, many ports, such as Shenzhen and Shanghai, are closed for operations. However, the country has shown signs of recovery after the lockdown of three months. Most of the businesses have reopened, which is expected to generate the demand for functional cosmetics.
