COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The effect of COVID-19 has been witnessed in several nations across the globe. Due to this, World Health Organization (WHO) announced it as a public health emergency. The governments of various nations declared lockdown, travel band, flight cancellation, and restricted all indoor & outdoor events. This led to hampering the supply chains of products. Several industries faced a slowdown in their business including the pore strips market. As lockdown was imposed during COVID-19, the manufacturing plants were closed, which led to hindering the supply chain of the pore strips market.

Moreover, the population was forced to stay at their home due to the COVID-19 guidelines, they started inclining towards homemade remedies due to the fear of getting infected, which resulted in declining the demand for pore strips, thereby hindered the growth of the pore strips market during the pandemic. Further, all parlors and beauty stores across the world were also closed, which is again attributed to the declined demand for these strips. However, it is estimated that in the post-COVID-19 period, the demand for pore strips will expand, especially through an e-commerce platform that would open new growth avenues for the pore strips market in the coming years.

Market Growth Factors:

The emergence of new products in the market

The market players are rapidly launching new products with enhanced quality of the product to offer more benefits to customers. This is anticipated to drive the growth of the pore strips market. The manufactures are providing variations in the products according to the skin of the customers. The presence of an excessive range of designs and variety of flavored pore strips are adding advantages to the sales of these strips. In addition, the advancement in technology has facilitated the packaging and labeling of this product, which is propelling the growth of the pore strips market.

Growing urbanization in emerging nations

The demand for numerous cosmetics and skincare products is increasing due to rising urbanization in the emerging nations across the world, leading to boost in the growth of the pore strips market. Based on the statistics by United Nations, there is a significant rise in the urban population across the world in the last couple of years. In addition, several families are migrating from rural areas to urban areas, which has changed the living style of the people and are focusing on enhancing their physical appearance, thereby, increasing the demand for beauty products including pore strips.

Market Restraining Factor:

Pore strips are not suitable for people having sensitive and thin skin

Excessive use of pore strips may create black spots and damage the skin. For people who have thin or sensitive skin, pore strips may act as an abrasive product because it may cause skin irritation, leading to red rashes on the skin. Polyquaternium-37, a polymeric quaternary ammonium salt is used as an ingredient in making pore strips, could have negative impacts like irritation on thin or sensitive skin. In addition, many customers had bad experiences like broken tiny blood vessels and capillaries after using pore strips.
