BANGKOK, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — UBM Asia has joined hands with the Thai Cosmetic Manufacturers Association, Health Food & Supplement Association, Herbal Product Association and the Beauty Culture Association of Thailand to launch ASEANbeauty 2015, the premier international beauty trade show for Southeast Asia. This beauty trade event will be held at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) from 8-10 April, 2015, and will solidify Thailand’s role as the centre of the region’s beauty industry.
Mr. M Gandhi, UBM Asia (Thailand) managing director and organiser of ASEANbeauty 2015, said, "Thai cosmetics and beauty products are widely accepted throughout the region given their high quality and advanced technologies in production."
According to Mrs. Ketmanee Lertkitcha, President of The Thai Cosmetic Manufacturers Association and also a supporting partner of ASEANbeauty, with an average annual growth of 10-20 percent over the past five years, Thailand is not only the biggest production hub for the cosmetics industry but also has the highest purchasing power for the sector among consumers in the ASEAN region. The total Thai cosmetic value was 2.07 billion Baht in 2013, comprised of 60 percent for local markets and 40 percent for exports, respectively. With the total health and beauty market value of 7 billion USD in 2013, Thailand is truly a beauty hub for those who would like to expand their business in the ASEAN region.
ASEANbeauty 2015 will bring together more than 200 world class beauty-related brands from 15 countries with comprehensive beauty product showcases, ranging from cosmetics, skincare, hair care, spa products to ingredients and a variety of beauty equipment supply, and all will participate in the event creating a business-matching value of over 2 billion baht. The event will also feature pavilions from various countries and regions including Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, mainland China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, India and Singapore. Conferences on beauty business opportunities and global cosmetics trends, as well as demonstrations on hair, spa, nail and make up are also part of the event schedule. ASEANbeauty 2015 will create business-matching opportunities for Thai and foreign entrepreneurs so that they can achieve further business growth and boost the overall beauty industry.
The coming integration of the ASEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY (AEC) which will bring together the whole region as a single market of over 600 million people together with stronger trading ties between the region and China; in this regard, the beauty industry provides an ideal and potentially lucrative growth opportunity for business expansion. High quality production and abundant availability of raw materials support this growing demand and promise continued profitability into the future.
Mr. M Gandhi concludes that the beauty industry has got a solid opportunity for further growth, especially when it comes to the skincare sector in the ASEAN region which is now worth around 17.5 billion Baht and is set to grow to 20 billion Baht by 2017. Such bright projections have been attracting investors and beauty brands from around the world and the ASEANbeauty exhibition will thus become a major event in support of beauty manufacturers and distributors who wish to grow across the ASEAN region. Visitors to ASEANbeauty are also promised huge benefits from the fact that they will see beauty innovations and related state-of-the-art products firsthand from various local and foreign manufacturers.
