Growth in the beauty and personal care industry reached a decade high last year and is set to continue unabated, according to Euromonitor. In fact, the value of the global cosmetic products market is expected to reach USD 805.61 billion by 2023, propelled by major trends including conscious consumerism, advancements in beauty technology and the rise of ‘skintellectuals’ – a new breed of consumer who is more knowledgeable than ever before.
And it is against this backdrop that in-cosmetics Global announces its return to Barcelona in 2020, celebrating 30 years of industry innovation.
The event will be hosted in the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region for the sixth time in the show’s three-decade history, having previously taken place in other major cities across Europe, including London, Paris, Milan and Amsterdam, since its launch in 1990. The event – which welcomed over 12,000 visitors in 2019 offers R&D professionals an unrivalled opportunity to source the latest ingredients, network with key suppliers, and learn about the trends shaping the beauty and personal care industry.
A truly global line-up
At the core of the event is the exceptional line-up of exhibitors, many of which return to showcase their latest innovative ingredients and services at the show year-on-year. For its debut, in-cosmetics (as it was originally called) hosted just 60 exhibitors – a number which has grown more than fourteen-fold, with 843 companies taking part in the 2019 edition. Continuing this momentum, next year the exhibitor line-up is expected to include 95% of the industry’s biggest names who have showcased their products at in-cosmetics Global for decades, including the likes of Croda, Ashland and Clariant. In addition, the 2020 show is set to welcome a host of first-time exhibitors, ensuring that visitors have the opportunity to meet suppliers of all shapes and sizes including some of the freshest faces in the industry.
