Top 10 cosmetic companies in India

The Indian cosmetic industry has seen a tremendous growth in the last few years and has emerged as one of the sectors with huge potential for further expansion. The increasing fashion consciousness among people coupled with more purchasing power has fueled the growth of the sector.

The sector was growing at a rate of five per cent annually till 1993. It is now growing at a rate of 25 per cent per annum. The skin care market today is estimated at over Rs 850 crore and the hair care market is estimated at around Rs 1000 crore.

The advent of the entertainment industry and the electronic media has enhanced the demand for beauty care products among all strata of society. Economic liberalization accompanied with a decrease in excise and custom duties have also played a major role in the increase in the production of the products.

The cosmetic industry of India is not only playing a crucial role in our economic development, but it has also earned the distinction of being the second largest exporter of herbal beauty products in the world after China.
