Beauty retailer Sephora has entered the Vietnamese market with a dedicated ecommerce store after an initial trial period of five months.
Local customers can now buy directly from Sephora online, but there is no word yet on whether the global brand will open a physical store.
About 90% of Vietnam’s cosmetics market is filled with foreign brands, led by South Korean products and followed by European and Japanese names. Market revenue, on the other hand, is pegged at US$514 million.
Sephora enhanced its Asian presence in 2019 with debuts in South Korea, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. It now has 200 stores in 16 Asian countries.
