Overview:

With over 17 million in the capital alone, Egypt’s cosmetics and beauty products and services growth do not seem thwarted by the country’s economic troubles. According to a study in 2009, the industry has been estimated to increase expenditure in the sector, reaching up to 2.4 billion LE, and was estimated to increase annually by 11.4%.

Egypt’s local manufacturing expansion has also boosted the country’s cosmetic sector’s strength.  Although the industry does not seem to be failing, there are issues that needs to be addressed. Fixing Egypt’s pharmaceutical pricing policy would help in increasing growth for the next five years for cosmetics, making generic cosmetics a better alternative for Egyptians which will be able to sell at more reasonable prices compared to international brands.

As well as having more raw material manufacturing facilities and gaining Governmental support for direct foreign investments would help in boosting the cosmetic industry in Egypt.

Free Benefits for Qualified Attendees:

Buyers and trade visitor’s benefits whom will be participating in The International Buyer Program B2B.

  • Invitation letter to apply for the Egyptian visa.
