Mirrors have been used since ancient times. However, glass mirrors were rare till the Venetians mastered the art of casting sheet glass and silvering it. Mirrors, mostly cosmetic mirrors, have a great impact on day-to-day life. Cosmetic mirrors are the mirrors that are used at home or salons and parlors for makeup application.

One of the major requirements for proper application of makeup is a good mirror. Increased awareness about makeup and beauty, rise in disposable incomes, and changes in lifestyle are driving the global cosmetic mirrors market. Cosmetic mirrors are commonly used for applying makeup or shaving. They are also used to pluck eyebrows. Cosmetic mirrors are more compact and they often have certain degree of magnification, which gives a better view while shaving or plucking. These factors are fueling the cosmetic mirrors market.

Concave mirrors are mostly preferred for use in makeup application. They are curved and they magnify objects in focus. When the light hits different parts of a concave mirror, the image is focused at the center of the mirror. Moreover, images seen in concave mirrors are sharper and clearer than those seen in a flat, plane, or convex mirror.

However, mirrors with lights are gaining increased importance. Mirrors with LED lights can illuminate the room to the extent that it seems like daylight. This makes application of makeup easy and convenient.

The global cosmetic mirrors market can be segmented based on product, type, application, sales channel, and geography. In terms of product, the market can be classified into magnifying mirrors, lighted mirrors, stationary mirrors, accessory mirrors, handheld mirrors, and integrated mirrors. Magnifying mirrors are often used for detailed makeup that uses eye liners and lip liners. A handheld makeup mirror is useful to watch the application of cosmetics and is convenient to be used along with a stationary mirror. Based on type, the cosmetic mirrors market can be divided into plane mirrors, concave mirrors, and convex mirrors. Plane mirrors are flat mirrors that reflect images in their normal sizes and proportions. Plane mirrors are commonly used in bedrooms and bathrooms. Concave mirrors often create an illusion of largeness. On the other hand, convex mirrors create an illusion of small size. In terms of application, the market can be categorized into residential and commercial. Based on sales channel, the cosmetic mirrors market can be bifurcated into online channels and offline channels.
