MUMBAI, India, May 8, 2013 /PRN=KYODO JBN/ --

     According to Indian Cosmetic Sector Analysis (2009-2012), the Indian

cosmetics industry is expected to witness fast growth rate in the coming years

on the back of an increase in the consumption of beauty products. Owing to

growing disposable income of the middle class households and changing

lifestyle, it is expected that the cosmetics industry will grow at a CAGR of

around 17% during 2010-2014.
