Market Restraints

By Product Type

  • Eyeliner: The largest segment in this market. The popularity of eyeliner can be attributed to its widespread use to enhance the shape of the eyes. Eyeliner or kohl makeup products are used by consumers to give definition to the eyes. The demand for waterproof eyeliner is high it does not smudge in humidity and heat conditions. Eyeliner is also available in several colors which increases sales.

  • Eyeshadow: Eyeshadow is used to provide color to the eyes. There is a variety of eyeshadows available in liquid, powder, cream, glitter, and gel form. The wide availability of easy-to-use eyeshadow has influenced sales, thereby boosting the eye makeup market size.

  • Mascara: In 2018, the mascara segment accounted for the second-largest share of the global eye makeup market. Mascara is used to enhance the eyelashes by providing color, length, and volume. Mascara enhances the overall appearance of the eyes and makes the lashes look thick at minimum cost and very low risk as compared to eyelash lifting treatments, which are complex and relatively expensive.

  • Eyebrow Enhancers: Eyebrow products are used to shape the eyebrows and make them look full and defined. There are various types of eyebrow products available, such as pencils, markers, powders, gels, tinted gels, pomades, and waxes. These products are manufactured for easy application and help give a natural look to eyebrows.

  • Others: The segment includes products such as eye primer, glitter, and false eyelashes. Eye primer is used as a base before applying any eye makeup product.  Eye makeup glitter products are available in liquid and powder form and are applied over eyeshadow. Rising focus on appearance is driving the sales of false eyelashes as they offer enhanced volume and length as compared to natural lashes.
