COVID-19 Impact on the Global Color Cosmetic Market

COVID 19 is a global pandemic that has affected a large portion of the population. Consumer purchases and business activities came to a halt as a result of the worldwide spread of covid-19. As a result of the pandemic's lockdowns, which restricted people's exposure to the outside world, there was a decrease in the demand for cosmetics. The closure of specialized beauty stores, which allowed customers to try products on board, resulted in a further drop in sales. The cosmetics industry's supply chain has been severely harmed due to the lockdown, which is expected to have long-term implications. As a result, consumer reliance on cosmetics has decreased dramatically. The outbreak of COVID-19 has also had a negative impact on the market's growth. Although the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant effect on the global beauty industry, top color cosmetic companies could quickly recover by temporarily shifting their focus to the production of sanitizers and products for healthcare workers. On the other hand, the color cosmetics market is a long-standing industry that has amassed many loyal customers over time.
