2:00pm - 2:45pm






As per tradition, the Statistics Department presents a full year forecast for the cosmetic sector on the occasion of Cosmoprof. Facing a basically stable domestic market, the turnover of Italian companies has been supported largely by exportation for some time now. The Statistics Department will report the statistical measurements of these phenomena and introduce a focus on the ten-year forecast on the evolution of the cosmetic sector from two complementary points of view: the future of market players and the future of consumers and their expectations for new products. A second focus on teenagers will show how taking care of one's body can contribute to defining the personality of adolescents and serve as a tool for an untroubled rapport with a group of peers.
