The specific needs of the cosmetic market in India will comprise the key themes of the 2019 edition of Cosmoprof India, the event organized by the international Cosmoprof network, scheduled from 12 to 14 June in Mumbai, at the Bombay Exhibition Center (BEC).
The latest trends, the best communication and marketing solutions, the best performing distribution policies in India are some of the subjects to be discussed at the Mumbai event.
The exhibition will host over 200 companies from 19 countries, representing all the sectors of the industry: from raw materials to machinery and automation, contract manufacturing to private label, and primary and secondary packaging to finished product - Perfumery and Cosmetics, Beauty Salon and Spa, Hair, Nail and Natural & Organic.
At Cosmoprof India, both local and international operators representing Europe, North America and the Far East are expected. While wholesalers, distributors and sales agents can discover futuristic innovations in their reference market, manufacturers, packaging and machinery specialists and suppliers can find the most interesting industrial solutions for their companies. Salon owners and retailers will also discover how to enrich the offer of their sales points.
Cosmoprof India is the optimal platform for the development of Made in India beauty: it will be the catalyst for networking and partnerships between local companies and international key players, which will inspire growth innovations, technologies and solutions of the sector, thereby raising the quality output.
To date, India is a market with an enormous potential: in the period between 2018 and 2023, for instance, a growth of up to 9.7% is expected, particularly in the perfumery sector, with a 19.6% growth, and a +13.1% in the make-up segment.
