L’Oreal’s (OTCMKTS: LRLCY) total revenue has grown from $27.58 billion in 2016 to $30.95 billion in 2018, on the back of strong demand growth in emerging markets, and higher pricing of their products. This growth was largely driven by a $2 billion increase in skin care revenue, which is L’Oreal’s largest segment, bringing in $9.83 billion in 2018. We expect L’Oreal’s total revenue to grow to $34.86 billion by 2020, on the back of new product launches and consistent demand growth.
- L’Oreal’s skin care division, which offers daily care and anti-aging products, is expected to contribute $11.06 billion to total revenue in 2019, making up 34% of L’Oreal’s $32.76 billion revenue estimate.
- The make up and hair care divisions, which equal 27% and 26% of total revenue, respectively, are expected to bring in a combined $17.39 billion in 2019.
- However, the skin care segment alone is expected to add $4.6 billion between 2016 and 2020, which is 63% of the additional $7.28 billion that the company is expected to bring in over this period.
- This strong revenue growth has been key to L’Oreal’s 50% price appreciation since December 2016, further helped by growing margins.
