The Success of Korean Beauty Products in the United States

South Korea is known for its smartphones, K-dramas, and K-pop. Now this Asian country is having success exporting its beauty products outside of Asia. BB creams originated in Korea and have exploded around the world. We are now seeing cushion compact foundations that blend color with skin care benefits as well as sleeping masks you wear overnight.

Thidathip TawichaiAnalyst Insight by Thidathip Tawichi - Consumer Appliances Analyst

Due to increases in internet access and the growth rate of smartphones and tablets sales volumes, internet user numbers have greatly increased around the globe. In personal care appliances, the internet has become a significant selling channel for manufacturers as well as a marketing channel where products have been widely advertised and promoted. Owners of global personal care appliance brands such as Panasonic, Braun and Philips increasingly advertise their products via social media such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to introduce new products, launch beauty tutorials or share promotional campaigns and marketing activities. Since smartphones and tablets are expected to post higher volumes over the next five years, social media will therefore be continuously utilised as an impactful marketing platform by personal care appliance manufacturers.

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

It is perhaps unsurprising that Asia Pacific – the generator of over half of skin care’s global revenues in 2014, and the expected source of over 75% of skin care absolute growth to 2019 – has become the key trend dictator. While Japan has long lost its skin care innovator image, over the past three years a rise in the popularity of K-pop culture and China’s extraordinary path from rags to riches has created a new era in skin care. International players now create products specifically for Asian consumers, test them in Asia and, if successful, then launch them in the West as well. This strategy is followed by Lancôme, Chanel and Christian Dior, among others. Estée Lauder has even taken it a step further by creating a brand specifically for China back in 2012, called Osaio. Thus, with all eyes on Asia, the region’s influence over skin care has developed in three distinct ways.

The Middle East and Turkey show many common trends in terms of consumer behaviour, preferences and habits in beauty and personal care.
