The fastest-growing segment within skincare is sun care, anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% over the 2012-17 period, which can be attributed to increasing awareness of the long-term harm caused by sun to the skin. Furthermore, continuing enthusiasm in the East for remaining fair-skinned has also helped to drive sales within this category.
Anti-aging is a key aspect within the skincare category, as consumers seek more elaborate yet non-invasive treatments to combat the signs of aging.
