All made up: Rising per capita disposable income will spur demand for industry products

Furthermore, a growing economy has increased consumer confidence and bolstered per capita disposable income, which consumers have increasingly used to purchase industry products. In addition, major international beauty chains such as Sephora and Bath & Body Works LLC have aggressively expanded into Canada, winning back industry revenue from external competition such as department stores and mass merchandisers. As per capita disposable income continues to rise over the coming years, industry revenue is forecast to similarly trend more.
