Asia’s cosmetics and toiletries sector is thriving and set to account for 28 per cent of the global cosmetics and toiletries market in 2015 – equivalent in size to Western Europe, according to Euromonitor International. As such an increasingly influential and fast growing market, this year’s in-cosmetics Asia event will take on even more importance than ever before.
The growth and influence of the Asian market is boosted by the high levels of innovation within products ranging from body moisturising lotions to hair styling gels. Showcasing these latest innovations and trends in this vibrant and rapidly growing market, in-cosmetics Asia brings together global ingredients suppliers with buyers, manufacturers, formulators, scientists and marketing professionals from across Asia.
New for 2015, in-cosmetics Asia will be introducing an overall show focus: ‘Natural and Organic’, reflecting one of the biggest global trends affecting the personal care ingredient industry today. Run in conjunction with Organic Monitor, this focus will see a Super Product Trail designed to guide visitors to 20 innovative natural and organic ingredients at the show, making it easy for delegates to target their visit and come away with plenty of ideas and insights. Dedicated presentations on market trends and an exclusive roundtable debate with some of the industry’s leading players will also be included in the show’s educational programme, whilst two natural & organic workshop sessions organised by Organic Monitor will run alongside in-cosmetics Asia as a stand-alone event.
To complement this activity, an informative trend report on the global natural and organic market will also be made available to download free of charge for all in-cosmetics Asia registered visitors.
Also being introduced this year is a segmented Innovation Zone highlighting the latest launches in Active and Functional Ingredients. Product Trails will also guide visitors to a selection of innovative ingredients across the show floor in the categories of anti-ageing, skin whitening and UV filters.
Furthermore, there will be a Country Focus on China, which will include a dedicated zone, Product Trail and market presentations from leading experts, as well as a wide range of Chinese exhibitors.
Sarah Gibson, Exhibition Director, in-cosmetics Asia said: “As a recognised hub for innovation, Asia is at the forefront of global trends that drive consumer demand and in-cosmetics Asia has a history of cultivating the region’s innovative ideas. It is the perfect platform for businesses to showcase their innovation and expertise, and for beauty and personal care players to share their insight and learnings.”
There are over 245 exhibiting companies already signed up for the event in November 2015 and 400+ are scheduled to take part in the event. New exhibitors include Wha Costech (South Korea), Ungerer Fragrance & Flavour Co. Ltd (China) and KBH Polymers Pvt Ltd (India), meanwhile the event also welcomes back some of the industry’s leading companies such as Ashland, DSM, Evonik, Clariant and Lonza, and forward thinking and innovative SMEs like Ichimaru Pharcos (Japan), BST (South Korea) and H&A Pharmachem (South Korea).
As well as uncovering new and exciting product innovations, in-cosmetics Asia offers visitors an unrivalled and 100 per cent free Educational Programme. Visitors can take their pick from Marketing Trends Presentations, Innovation Seminars, Regulatory Presentations and the highly popular Formulation Lab, introduced last year exclusively for R&D professionals and formulators attending the show.
Each show element offers access to the industry’s leading experts and research companies, helping delegates identify future opportunities and better understand the cosmetics industry’s key markets. This year sessions will range from multi-functional ingredients to 3D printing for cosmetics and regulations through to specific market insights for Korea and China.
The show, like the market, is growing both in size and influence. 2014 saw record numbers come through the door with 6,595 unique visitors – an increase of 10 per cent on the previous year. Exhibitor numbers and visitor interest all point to another hugely successful and record breaking year in 2015.
