Cosmoprof India Mumbai 2019 was an event that turned the spotlight on the future of the cosmetic industry in India, with 237 exhibitors and 7,429 meaning that the numbers were doubled compared to the number of attendees last September.
“These figures well represent the growth of Cosmoprof India, compared to the preview edition of September 2018, thanks also to the new location, the Bombay Exhibition Center, with a richer exhibition offer,” declares Enrico Zannini, General Manager of BolognaFiere Cosmoprof. “Cosmoprof India does not stop there: this year’s success bears witness to the enormous potential of this event, in a constantly growing market – in the period between 2018 and 2023 an overall growth of 9.7% is expected, with significant growth rates in particular for the perfumery sector (+ 19.6%) and for make-up (+ 13.1%). To facilitate networking and business between companies and international and local operators, for the next edition we will increase the display area available to exhibitors, focusing on manufacturing, a key sector of the cosmetics industry in India. We are sure that these are the first steps for the development of an event, which will soon become a reference appointment for the beauty sector in India.”
Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India added: “We are impressed with the immense success of the debut edition of the Cosmoprof India Show. It is indeed an amazing achievement to organise a show of this caliber in such a short while since the preview edition. Cosmoprof India proudly encourages a Made in India concept of beauty: We wish to do so by setting new standards for the sector through the immense amount of exposure and networking between local and global brands. This give and take will no doubt inspire new ideas, innovations, technology and solutions and will play its part in making the market set to reach the projected valuation of USD 35bn even before 2035.”
