SpendEdge’s Supplier Profiling Helps a Renowned Cosmetic Products Manufacturer Improve their Service Efficiency

Mar 30, 2018

Overview of the Cosmetic Products Industry

The cosmetic products manufacturing space is highly dynamic with the extensive use of innovation to meet the growing demand for luxury and prestige produce lines among the audiences. Companies in the consumer packaged goods industry are facing the need to reformulate their product offerings and introduce active ingredients to meet the needs of the health-conscious consumers. Increasing per capita income and growing awareness about beautification are the factors that are sustaining the growth of the cosmetic products manufacturing industry. In addition, the growth of the cosmetic products industry can also be attributed to the radical shift toward organic products.

Although the changing lifestyles and varying climate changes contribute to the growth of the cosmetic products manufacturing sector, some of the factors that may hinder the growth of the industry include.

  • Keeping up with the evolving beauty standards: The competition in the cosmetic products industry is relatively high with the influx of both multinational and regional players. Homegrown players need to design brand-building strategies to respond to the frequent changes in the outlook of the customers. As the consciousness among the consumers increases, brands should keep innovating to stay relevant and address the growing needs of the populace.
  • Innovations: With the drawbacks associated with the use of certain chemical compounds in the manufacturing of cosmetic products, prominent companies in the CPG industry are focusing on innovations to develop herbal and natural beauty products. The rising need for more organic products also involves high investments in research and development.
  • Regulatory challenges: At present, cosmetic products are subjected to stringent regulations from the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. The stringent government regulations are compelling major companies to eradicate issues pertaining to misbranding and adulteration.

In this challenging environment, companies in the CPG industry should ensure that they provide transparency and traceability in their supply chain process and mitigate any risk pertaining to supply chain efficiency. Organizations can leverage the use of effective supply management solution to profile the most suitable suppliers and reduce risks associated with production delays and ensure consistency in their product offerings.request free proposal
