Latin American industry growth forecast to slow
The Latin American beauty industry is set for further growth, with the outlook for the region’s beauty remaining strong, although the rate of growth will slow compared to the last five years.
The latest figures from market research provider Euromonitor International show that the biggest opportunities are likely to be found in the men’s grooming and fragrance categories, while the counties with the strongest overall growth are likely to be found in the region's two largest markets, Mexico and Brazil.
Cosmetics Design looked at Euromonitor forecasts for the region’s five biggest economies – Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico – where we found that the outlook is largely positive, although the Colombian market does represent some specific challenges that translate into a lower growth rate.
Cosmoprof eyes Latin America
Cosmoprof already has a major global presence with its events in Europe, Asia and North America. Now it is looking to increase its footprint in Latin America through its partnership with the Belleza Y Salud event.
This year's Belleza Y Salud was held in Bogota at the end of September and the partnership between organizer Coferias and Cosmoprof event organizer Bologna Fiere resulted in an event with a more international flavor.
The partnership rmeant the addition of a seventh hall space filled with international beauty companies, mainly from Italy. Indeed, this development could spell the future direction of the event, which, if Bologna Fiere plays its cards right, is likely to end up replicating many aspects of the other international Cosmoprof events.
