The cosmetics market in the Middle East and Africa is rapidly developing due to economic and population growth and rising disposable incomes. Additionally, according to Euromonitor International, between 2005 and 2010 skin care value sales in Africa and the Middle East rose from an estimated US$1.4 bn to US$2.4 bn marking a 12% CAGR in comparison to the 7% enjoyed in the global skin care market.
Organised by German exhibition company Epoc Messe Frankfurt, the annual trade exhibition for beauty products, hair, fragrances and well being in the Middle East provides the ideal platform to embrace these growing trends and reach new markets. Beautyworld Middle East, taking place in 2013 from May 28 to 30, has gained in popularity with a marked increase in African business participation.
2013 will see the 17th edition of Beautyworld Middle East take place in Dubai from May 28 - 30. In 2012 the trade fair enjoyed a 10% increase in exhibitor numbers and a 22% increase in visitor numbers welcoming over 22,000 visitors – a long stride ahead of visitor numbers in 2011, a show that in itself was exceptionally attended.
Helping to drive this growth is the regional marketplace which is also registering significant growth and development. Recent estimates by Euromonitor International forecast the colour cosmetics industry alone to reach US$2.3 mn by 2014, with Algeria, Egypt and Morocco amongst the African countries leading the way. Similarly, the premium fragrances market is expected to reach US$2.3 bn by 2014.
According to Mr. Nazih Hamad, Managing Director of Nazih Group, exhibiting at Beautyworld Middle East is an essential part of his annual calendar. He stated after the most recent edition: “We are very happy with Beautyworld Middle East. The visitor quality has been very good – B2B visitors with genuine interest. We have met very good contacts from Africa and almost all Middle East countries. For the people who want to do business in the beauty industry – this is the door to the MENA markets.”
