What Makes South Korea a Favourite Destination for UV Filter Suppliers?
“High Popularity of K-Beauty Trends and K-Beauty Products”
Korean skincare has witnessed a major boom in popularity in recent years owing to the high popularity of K-Pop and K-Dramas around the world. The government of South Korea is trying to capitalize on these opportunities by launching supportive initiatives for start-ups and encouraging local businesses to export their products on a global scale.
- In June 2023, the Ministry of SMEs and Start-ups of South Korea collaborated with French multinational personal care giant, L’Oreal to start a start-up incubation program for beauty technology start-ups in South Korea.
- Sales of ultraviolet filters in South Korea are set to increase at a CAGR of 4.4% and reach US$ 671.7 million by the end of the study period (2023 to 2033).
Why is China a Profitable Market for Producers of UV Filters?

More people than ever before are conscious about what are their products made from and this is one of the major factors driving sales of organic UV filters not just in the East Asian region but across the world.

UV Filters of Which SPF Range are Most Sought After?
“SPF 15 to 30 UV Filters Account for Leading Share of Product Sales”
Versatility and effectiveness of UV filters in the SPF 15 to 30 range are unmatched and are kind of perfect for East Asian consumers as they are not subjected to extreme UV rays that require higher SPF protection. Also, the difference in the amount of protection offered by SPF 30+ products is minimal and heavier on wallets, which is why consumers prefer to opt for products in the SPF range of 15 to 30.
- UV filters with an SPF range of 15 to 30 currently account for a sales volume of 40,571.6 tons in East Asia.
Cheap labor and the high availability of raw materials in China have made it a manufacturing hub for different products, which is attracting ultraviolet filter manufacturers to set up their production facilities in the country.
- In September 2023, BASF, a German chemical company and a renowned supplier of UV filters, announced that its new production line for UV filters has started production. The facility situated in Jinshan, China, is part of BASF’s efforts to satisfy the rising demand for personal care ingredients in the Asian region.
