Also, the rules governing cosmetic products in the European Union are not restricting the use of these ingredients.
- Levulinic acid is used in around 130 cosmetic formulations and sodium levulinate is used in around 400 cosmetic formulations, according to 2020 VCRP survey data. Levulinic acid has highest maximum concentration of around 4.5% in hair dyes while Sodium Levulinate is used at maximum concentration of 0.62% in mouthwashes and breath fresheners.

- Also, these ingredients are reportedly safe for use in products that come in contact with eyes. For instance, sodium levulinate is used up to 0.57% in the eye shadows and lotions.
- Hair textures vary from person to person, and so do the hair- and scalp-related issues. Some people might have damaged or dry hair, while others must deal with breakage and hair fall problems. This, in turn, increasing the hair care products primarily hair dyes.

- Continuous growth in online beauty spending, expanding use of social networks, increasing interest of consumer interest in new and premium products, accelerating urbanization, and the growth of the upper middle class population are the major factor driving the cosmetics market worldwide.

Asia Pacific to dominate the Market

- Asia-Pacific is the largest market for levulinic acid. It is also expected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The dominance is majorly attributed to the countries such as China, India, and Japan.
- Countries like China and India are the largest consumers of fertilizers, especially because of their ever-increasing population and limited agricultural land. Hence, the need for fertilizers is high in these countries.
- At present, the penetration of personal care products in India is low when compared to developed or even other developing economies. However, improving the economic environment and increasing purchasing power of the Indian population are expected to increase the adoption of personal care products in the country, thereby driving the demand for levulinic acid and their salts.

- According to a report published by the Ministry of Economy and Industry, the beauty and personal care (BPC) industry in the country is expected to reach more than USD 10 billion by 2021, at an estimated growth rate of 5%-6% annually.
- India is the third-largest pharmaceuticals in terms of volume and thirteenth most significant in terms of value as it has a large raw material base and availability of a skilled workforce.
