The global halal cosmetics market size was USD 21.20 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 33.3 billion in 2021 to USD 77.34 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 12.75% during the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower growth of 19.4% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The increasing consumer preference for chemical-free, natural ingredient-based cosmetics & personal care products is favoring the market growth. Halal products are in high demand across countries with a large Muslim population. Key players continue to focus on R&D and innovation activities, which greatly enhance sales. The halal-certified cosmetics market size is likely to create considerable growth opportunities for prospective players in the coming years, given the growing demand for safe and clean-labeled products. While halal-certified products have historically been in high demand across Muslim countries, modern consumers are increasingly preferring these products owing to various factors such as ingredients used and safety even in Non-Muslim countries.


Severe Supply Chain Disruptions Caused by COVID-19 Pandemic to Hamper Market Expansion

COVID-19 has caused significant supply chain disruptions worldwide, most notably throughout 2020. Small-scale halal-certified cosmetics manufacturers in emerging countries such as India, Malaysia, and others are being challenged by price fluctuations and economic uncertainties caused by the novel pandemic. Key international players such as Kao Corporation and Ivy Beauty Corporation Sdn Bhd are also experiencing disruptions in their business operations. Kao Corporation’s consolidated revenue for 2020 declined almost 8% compared with 2019 due to the closure of its production sites, store-based distribution channels, and disruptions in supply chain operations. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operations, the company manages to sustain sales worldwide by utilizing online supply chain benefits.

Natural & Eco-friendly Cosmetics are Becoming Increasingly Popular

The demand for natural and plant-based products has been rising steadily over the past few decades worldwide. Recent years have witnessed a heightened product demand worldwide as consumers are becoming increasingly aware of sustainable living practices environmental issues associated with non-halal cosmetic products. A healthy lifestyle necessitates the use of natural cosmetics and personal care products. In this respect, halal certified cosmetics are gaining widespread adoption, as they are primarily manufactured using natural ingredients (without employing animal fat or harmful chemicals). Numerous brands offer cosmetic & personal care products that feature natural ingredients such as botanical extracts and minerals and obtain vegan or halal to compete in the cosmetics space.


Rising Consumer Demand for Product Quality and Safety is a Key Factor Favoring Market Growth

Halal cosmetics are manufactured or sourced from halal ingredients, including oils, organic solvents, proteins, vitamins, plant, and botanical extracts, and antioxidants. They are manufactured using a complex mixture of all these ingredients under halal standards. Manufacturers closely monitor the products to match the halal grade.

The Islamic law does not permit the employment of ingredients sourced from human body parts, pigs, blood, reptiles, and insects. The law also states that the production, processing, storage, and transportation of products are to be pure and under hygienic conditions. The safety and quality of halal certified cosmetic standards are higher compared with standard cosmetics products that are commercially available. This factor also contributes to the heightened popularity of halal-certification in cosmetics worldwide.

Rising Acceptance of Halal Certified Cosmetics Backed by Government Support

With the growing Muslim population, halal items are becoming more popular in many parts of the world. In Malaysia, more than 50% of the population are Muslims and they prefer halal-certified products including cosmetics. According to the Government of India (GoI), the Muslim population in the country was more than 10.9% in 2019, and their population is increasing year on year. Furthermore, non-Muslim consumers prefer to buy halal certified cosmetics products, given their increasing awareness of halal-certified products. Various countries, including the United States, India, China, and Malaysia permit the cross-border sale of products.


Price Factor of Halal Cosmetics Impeding Product Demand

The price for halal certified cosmetics is much higher than standard cosmetic products. While quality and safety are key factors that influence buyers’ purchase decisions, the price remains the most prominent factor in the market. Consumers across developing markets such as Brazil, India, China, and others are shifting halal type of cosmetic products to standard cosmetics products owing to the price factor. Therefore, higher price points are likely to restrain the halal cosmetics market growth over the forecast timeframe.
