The Regional Economic Observatory of the CCI Paris Ile-de-France unveils the elements of its publication devoted to the perfume-cosmetics sector in the Ile-de-France region.
France is the leading producer of perfume and cosmetics in Europe with a turnover of nearly 25 billion euros in 2015, including 17.5 billion euros for Ile-de-France. With a total of 4,500 establishments in the perfume-cosmetics sector, Ile-de-France ranks as the leading region in France. The majority of French groups in this sector generate a significant portion of their turnover from exports.
Ile-de-France has a little more than 500 manufacturers and nearly 4,000 distributors , or 29% of the total number of French manufacturers in 2015 and 34% of the number of distributors. In terms of development, all the Ile-de-France departments experienced an increase in the number of establishments in the sector between 2011 and 2015.
The region also accounts for nearly 36% of the 1,542 creations (manufacturers and distributors) of the perfume-cosmetics sector registered throughout the country in 2015.
In total, across the country, nearly 91,300 salaried jobs were recorded in the perfume-cosmetics sector in 2015, including around 37,900 salaried jobs in Ile-de-France, or 41% of the total. Ile-de-France is thus the first region on a national scale.
Finally, the French perfume and cosmetics market shows favorable prospects in 2017, of around + 3% in value (source: Xerfi), at a slightly faster pace than in 2016.
