Rising Consciousness about Aesthetic to Drive Market Demand
The essential driver of the market is the rise in number of aged people. And with consumers becoming more conscious about their beauty than before, the interest for anti-ageing creams and diverse skincare moisturizers has surged majorly. Other than this, the developing awareness about the accessibility of these items is another key driver of the cosmetic skin care items market in MENA. Additionally, the increase in the spending capacity of the purchasers in the region has empowered the market too.
Lack of Awareness about Skin Care to Hamper Market Growth
On the flipside, the cosmetic skin care market is still suffering from lack of awareness about skin care in specific countries in MENA. Also, stringent government directions with respect to approval and marketing of these products at times leaves a negative effect.
