Beta-ARBUTIN is a synthetic whitening material appearing as White needle crystal or powder. It is one of the safest and most efficient whitening materials and protects skin from damages caused by free radicals. Beta-Arbutin is a skin agent that eliminates melanin pigment by inhibiting Tyrosinase activity. It is ideal for use in whitening, bleaching, and skin lightening products.

In regions such as, North America and Europe, aging and wrinkles are common problems compared to hyperpigmentation.

North America is expected to hold market share in the global beta arbutin market. North America to Reach USD 104.86 Million by 2025 at a CAGR of 3.2% is attributed to consumers being more willing to buy anti-aging products such as Nutri-Cell Complex, Skin Odyssey, and Advanced Anti-Ageing Night Cream by Viviane Woodard, rather than modern skin-brightening and skin depigmentation products.

Moreover, the easy availability of substitute products, including 10% Niacinamide Booster by Paula's Choice and Vitamin B3 Brightening Serum by PCA Skin, are expected to hamper the beta arbutin market growth in North America.

A huge population base is willing to whiten and brighten skin tone, which does not naturally occur due to hyperpigmentation, including hormonal activity, exposure to intense sunlight, and intensified UV radiation due to pollution. 

In addition, the millennial population in the region is influenced by social media, which compels consumers to opt for products that can make their skin whiter and remove pigmentation to look more beautiful.
