Lately, light-scented fragrances have become a recent trend in the fragrance market and are getting renowned attention from people. Noticing the trend, the key manufacturers of fragrances are showing much interest in developing and introducing such products to the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global fragrance market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a significant impact on the fragrance market. The sales of the fragrance products went down immediately with the impact of measures taken by the governments of several countries, such as lockdowns, bans on traveling and social gatherings. Due to these measures, people stopped coming out and visiting stores and purchase these products. Likewise, the sales of fragrance products have seen a massive drop and the same result has been seen in the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has also brought several changes in consumer preferences. People worldwide had kept their focus on essential products and did not consider purchasing luxury products such as fragrances. This factor also contributed to the declining sales of fragrance products and eventually caused a decline in the growth rate of the global market. The global supply chains were damaged significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has affected the relations between international suppliers and manufacturers of fragrances. The disruption in the global supply chains caused a delay in the production and distribution of fragrance products and hampered the demand levels of these products, which also had an unfavorable impact on the global market. On the other hand, the global fragrance market also experienced a light during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the increased usage of online platforms to purchase products, including fragrance products. The manufacturers of fragrance products have shifted and kept increased focus on making their fragrance products available to buy on online platforms and this has contributed to the global market growth slightly.

Now that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has diluted significantly and the global fragrance market has started recovering and is estimated to post healthy growth during the forecast period.
