Nykaa, or FSN E-Commerce Ventures, is a consumer technology platform that provides consumers with a content-led, lifestyle retail experience through a diversified portfolio of beauty, personal care, and fashion products, including their own brand.
Nykaa is India’s leading specialty beauty and personal care platform in terms of product value sold in FY21, as well as one of the fastest-growing fashion platforms in terms of GMV growth.

Nykaa’s foray into the fashion industry looks promising. Despite lower margins in FY22 (due to lower ad expenditure in FY21), we forecast consistent profit expansion driven by scale economies. Over the course of FY19-21, the company has increased margins from 1.8 percent to 6.6 percent, making it one of the few E-commerce companies to break even. Nykaa can maintain a CAGR of 35% in revenue and 50% in EBITDA with double-digit margins over the next five years, according to Prabhudas Lilladher, a brokerage business.
