The Economic Impact of the Fragrance Industry

To celebrate National Fragrance week (18-24 March), this report provides the first comprehensive assessment of the contribution of the fragrance industry to the UK economy. It finds the fragrance industry has a large positive economic footprint in the UK. The industry must therefore be recognised as a valuable asset for the UK economy.

In total, we estimate the fragrance industry generated a total gross value added contribution to GDP worth £7.1 billion in 2018. From this activity it supported the employment of 126,700 people and was responsible for raising £2.1 billion in tax receipts.

This impact is centred around the wholesale and retail of fragrance products. However, there is also a notable manufacturing footprint, with additional impacts in sectors across the economy driven by the supply chain spending and consumer activity that the industry’s payment of wages creates.
