Market Dynamics

Key Driver

Rising Grooming Habits Among Egyptian Men to Support the Market Growth

The personal hygiene routines of Egyptians have promoted the sales of beauty and personal care products, especially soaps, deodorants, and perfumes. The evolution of the grooming habits of men has driven the Egypt Beauty and Personal Care Market over the years. Egyptian men are very particular about trimming, shortening, and shaping their beards and as a result, the use of beard oils, shaving creams, and after-shave lotions were considerably high.

Furthermore, with the proliferation of social media in the country, men in Egypt are inclining themselves to look better owing to which the men are increasingly using products like shaving creams, colognes, concealers, serums, shampoos, moisturizers, deodorants, etc. This awareness among men has led to a trend where more and more men in the country are frequently visiting beauty salons to spot that trendy look and splurge on beauty treatments. This has further led to the expansion of men’s beauty parlors in the country and these salons are now actively purchasing various haircare and skincare products to provide beauty services to their customers.

Moreover, Egyptian men are also focusing on anti-aging products like skincare, wrinkle care, eye care, etc., to look young and healthy due to which the demand for beauty and personal care products among men would rise in the forecast years. 

Possible Restraint

Wealth Imbalance Among Egyptians to Hamper the Growth of Beauty and Personal Care Products in Egypt

 There is huge income inequality in Egypt, as per World Inequality Database 2021 report, 10% of Egyptians obtained about 50% of the total national income, which means that 90% of the population received only 50% of the country’s national income. This income disparity is leading to an opportunity loss for beauty and personal care product manufacturers as the major population of the country does not have the desired level of disposable income. The low disposable income of individuals is considerably affecting their purchasing power and is hampering the sales of cosmetic products which fall under the category of non-essential items.

Growth Opportunity

Increasing Number of Newborns to Boost the Demand for Baby Care Products

The population of Egypt has risen to 104 million in 2022, and the number of newborn babies is increasing each year in the country. The increase in the number of newborns is increasing the demand for baby care products like mild shampoos, soaps, powders, etc. social media penetration, coupled with parents' urge to provide their babies with the utmost care, is driving the demand for baby care products, and with the increasing number of newborns, a huge opportunity has surfaced for the beauty & personal care product manufacturers in the country.

Key Trend

Growing Consumer Preference towards Herbal Personal Care Products

The growing awareness about the ill effects of chemical-based personal care products is shifting consumer preferences toward herbal products. The proliferation of the internet in the country due to government-subsidized mobile internet costs has led people to spend more time on their smartphones. The use of the internet has created a significant understanding of the ill effects of using chemical-based products and this has created a nominal shift in the consumer base towards herbal personal care products. The better effectiveness and soft nature of the natural ingredients in herbal products have further accelerated their adoption in the country. Skincare & hair care are the major product segments where consumers are increasingly adopting herbal options.
