IiMedia Research data show that from 2012 to 2018, the scale of China's cosmetics market showed a stable growth trend, with an annual compound growth rate of 8.0%. In particular, the rise of “Yan-value economy“ has further stimulated the enthusiasm of Chinese netizens for cosmetics consumption. Judging from the attention of netizens, netizens in Guangdong pay most attention to cosmetics-related information, followed by Zhejiang, Shandong, Hubei and other places. Generally speaking, Chinese consumers have large demand, high purchase frequency and great development potential for daily essential cosmetics. However, they are faced with such problems as the high-end market being dominated by international brands, intense homogenization competition, and difficulty in premium payment for enterprises. Cosmetic companies need to further understand the consumer market, seize the trend of Yan-value economy and other economies, open up channels for social e-commerce transformation, and conduct more refined product sales.
