Key Indicator to Monitor (Inflation) and Importance and Impact to the Airline Industry
Macroeconomic factors are crucial in influencing businesses. In the beauty industry, the
macroeconomic factor that is of concern is inflation. Inflation tends to affect the price of
commodities (Hall, 2009). Inflation is important because it affects the prices of beauty products.
In the beauty industry, there are different products that affect the price that one is charged for a
service. For instance, in case a certain beauty product is costly, it implies that the price charged
in providing a beauty service involving the expensive product will be costly as well. Thus, when
there is high inflation, the prices associated with beauty services are likely to increase.
