COVID-19 Pandemic Fuels the Growth in Global Skincare Market
With increasing demand among different population sections, the future for the skincare market seemed optimistic and the market was given further impetus by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
With governments imposing strict social distancing regulations and lockdowns in a bid to contain the spread of the virus, most families were forced to stay indoors.
However, these families have shown a shift in patterns, with an increased focus on personal care and as a result, purchased different wellness and beauty products that would help maintain skin quality.
This helped in the growth of the market, even when the world was going through such a tumultuous phase. It is anticipated that during the post-pandemic phase, the demand for skincare products will continue to remain high, leading to steady growth in the global market.
While skincare products have proven beneficial to both men and women across population sections, there are drawbacks that could impact product demand, in future.
Increased Risk of Skin Diseases Owing to Product Overuse Could Dent the Growth in the Overall Skincare Market in Future
Certain skincare products, if used excessively, could damage the skin and lead to different diseases such as melanoma. This product aspect could be a key restraining factor to the growth of the global skincare market, in the coming years.
Skin nourishment products are usually recommended for those, who have specific skin characteristics and are not suggested for use to others. This could result in reduced product sales and negatively impact the growth in the skincare market, in future.
Growth strategies such as novel product launches which do not affect the human skin despite excessive use, could help prominent skincare market players gain a competitive edge over others.
Leading US-based consumer goods market player Gillette, in 2021, launched a new line of skincare and shaving products named ‘Planet KIND’. The packaging technology used in these products was found to be recyclable and developed from 85% recycled plastic and recyclable aluminum. Some of the products line-up for sales comprise face wash and moisturizers.
Research & development undertakings could be a key growth strategy for leading skincare market players in future.
