The domestic cosmetic contract manufacturing market in FY2017 largely expanded to 110.2% of the size of the previous year to achieve 290,000 million yen, based on the sales at the businesses.  Deregulation caused by the revised Pharmaceutical Affairs Act has led to separation of sales and manufacturing at cosmetic brands, which invited new market entry by the new and existing businesses from diverse industries and encouraged outsourcing of manufacturing processes.

Expansion of inbound tourism demand in the domestic market and of outbound demand (local demand at exported countries) in China and ASEAN countries has contributed to increase production of Japanese cosmetics, invigorating the cosmetic contract manufacturing market.
