According to relevant data, the retail sales of cosmetics reached 261.9 billion yuan in 2018, up 9.6% year-on-year, 0.6 percentage points higher than the total retail sales of consumer goods in the same period. In addition, the retail sales of cosmetics in the year to April 2019 were 21 billion yuan, up 6.7 percent year-on-year.
There is no doubt that in recent years, the cosmetics industry has taken the train of high-speed development. First, China's cosmetics industry has experienced a growth process from nothing to something, and domestic brands have entered a recovery stage. Second, with the deepening of consumption upgrading, consumer groups began to expand, consumer awareness gradually wake up, the cosmetics industry step by step, volume and price rise continued to push up the prosperity of the cosmetics industry.
“intelligent manufacturing” is the general trend
Behind the prosperity of cosmetics industry, a group of huge consumer groups are pushing the industry forward, and the trend of the industry is also guided by the needs of consumers.
Nowadays, product power is becoming more and more important, and correspondingly, enterprises pay more and more attention to the supply chain. The traditional supply chain is defined as the whole process of procurement, production, sales and logistics.
With the development of The Times, Internet +, big data, new retail, social networking, artificial intelligence and other sectors have gradually penetrated into the supply chain. The supply chain has expanded from a chain to a three-dimensional, multi-dimensional, network link form, running through the whole process from research and development to consumption.
Obviously, the traditional supply chain business structure based on manufacturers, agents, customers and consumers can no longer meet the needs of enterprise development, so the future supply chain management process will be more intelligent.
Today, with the development of information and technology, "intelligent manufacturing" has gradually entered the supply chain and become the future development trend of the supply chain. This is the evolution of the supply chain and the evolution of the era.
The factory is a key link in the evolution of the supply chain
For factories upstream of the supply chain, "intelligent manufacturing" is particularly important.
In the field of cosmetics, people's demand will only increase with the increase of economic development. In 2013, China successfully overtook Japan to become the second largest consumer of cosmetics. The answer to how to meet such a huge market demand is "smart manufacturing".In the field of cosmetics, people's demand will only increase with the increase of economic development.

Relying only on traditional production equipment and manual operations, not only low production efficiency, and the quality of products can not have a good guarantee, will only be slowly abandoned by the market.
High investment will have high quality, high quality will have high return. In the short run, high-tech production equipment is expensive for factories, but in the long run, intelligent production equipment can reduce costs, improve production efficiency, whether product quality or output, there are excellent equipment guarantee.
And when the makeup development gradually tends to mature, the more to the later period, the factory competition between the more excellent technology level and sophisticated equipment, and this is also the core problem of domestic brands to shorten the gap with international brands. Cosmetics industry to complete the further transformation and upgrading of the supply chain, the factory to achieve "intelligent manufacturing" is a must. Cartoning machines are widely used for packaging bottled foodstuffs, confectionery, medicine, cosmetics, etc., and can vary based on the scale of business.
