The Indonesian skincare market is experiencing robust growth, driven by several key factors, including the increased adoption of social media and rising disposable income. Projections indicate that the industry will maintain this growth trajectory with a 4.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next four years.
Local brands like Wardah are very popular in this growing market, while imported brands like SK-II compete fiercely. China and South Korea are the leading importers of the market.
