Poland is the 5th largest manufacturer of cosmetics in the European Union. The industry is developing very dynamically, and Polish companies are more and more boldly and dynamically looking for new markets. In the era of a pandemic and war in Ukraine, non-European markets, especially Asian ones, are becoming the leading direction for this sector. Entering them, however, requires the preparation of a long-term expansion strategy, including significant expenditures on brand promotion also in social media. Our task is to help companies in this. That is why we decided to organise a trade mission to Southeast Asia.
We invite you to our monthly dose of macroeconomic analysis prepared on the basis of data from the Polish Central Statistical Office. More »
