Hair & Scalp Care Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2017-2027

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the hair & scalp care market, since there have been extensive retail and salon shop closures, resulting in lower global sales of numerous beauty and personal care products. Because of the pandemic, for example, Beiersdorf AG reported a 1.9 percent drop in sales across the board in the second quarter of 2020. Because of the aforementioned reason for salon closures, consumers in the worldwide marketplace have adopted one of the most noticeable trends: do-it-yourself (DIY) beauty care. Because of concerns about direct physical contact, many beauty salons have closed, and even in regions where they haven't, consumers have avoided these services. As a result, DIY hair coloring is gaining popularity. As a result, haircare sales in Superdrug stores in the United Kingdom climbed by 76 percent year to date (April-May 2020), including root touch-up goods such as hair color.

Market driving Factors:

Rising demand for Organic Hair Care Products and trends of hair coloring & long hair among men

The strong demand for natural ingredients has led to the majority of companies developing products with nature-inspired components, like plant-inspired and premium botanical ingredients. In addition, conditioners and shampoos, serums and oils, and styling are among the organic hair care product types that are highly popular among both genders around the world owing to their widespread use. Moreover, anti-dandruff organic hair oils are also predicted to increase strongly during the forecast period. Organic hair care products are projected to see a significant surge in demand in Western Europe. The growing popularity of colored hair among young people is likely to drive up demand for dyes and colors, particularly among women. For example, according to data given by Breast Cancer.

Rising number of Hair-Related problems and a higher emphasis on organic and natural product development

Hair concerns such as greying, dandruff, and hair loss are becoming more common among men, which is likely to increase the use of hair care products. For example, according to data published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research in October 2018, 60.3 percent of males aged 18-50 suffer from hair loss, while 17.1 percent suffer from dandruff. In addition, because the elderly is more susceptible to hair problems than the younger age, demand for such products would further increase in the upcoming years. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the global population of people aged 65 and up reached 703 million in 2019. As people become more aware of the negative impacts of chemicals on their health and the environment, their preferences are turning toward organic and herbal products.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Alternatives and counterfeit products are widely available on the market

Haircare products are in high demand all around the world. Moreover, businesses are committed to meeting the needs of their customers. However, this rising demand is contributing to an increase in the number of counterfeit products that contain dangerous substances. In addition, hair cleaners containing dangerous ingredients that claim to have desired benefits and are inexpensive have had a variety of harmful effects on the scalp and hair growth. Additionally, DIY (Do-It-Yourself) product kits and a greater understanding of home therapies for hair cleaning, such as the use of amla (Indian gooseberry), reetha (Indian soapberry), egg yolk, and curd, are viable alternatives to haircare products.
