Historical & Future Projections

From 2016 to 2020, the market projected a low CAGR of around 2.7%, with salon professional hair dye and at home hair dye playing a crucial role in driving the overall market.

  • Short-run: Recovery growth is set to be observed over this term.
  • Medium-run: Demand and price normalization are set to be observed over this period.
  • Long-run: Economic cycles and inflation rates to affect demand and pricing of the product.

Assessing the market over the forecast period, it is anticipated to grow at a moderate rate in the short-run (2021-2024), while in the medium run, it is expected to record higher growth.

Category-wise Insights

Why is liquid hair dye expected to witness notable demand?

Traditional powder hair dye will have higher market share initially due to economic feasibility, especially in a majority of low- and medium-income countries.

But now, the role has been reversed, and manufacturers have started providing crème-based hair color at lower costs and in small sachets. With liquid hair dye gaining major focus from the demand side, it will give added impetus to overall market growth over the forecast period.

Why are online sales of hair dye surging?

Online sales have seen a boom during the ongoing pandemic. Majority of salons and professional stores were closed, because of which, it has been difficult for customers to continue their regular hair care regimes.

The only option left was online purchase of these product for hair coloring at home. Thus, such a necessity has boosted the online sales channel share, which will continue to grow post pandemic as well.

What are the key challenges faced by hair dye manufacturers?

Manufacturers have been facing various issues related to hair dye ingredients. For instance, coal tar-based hair dye is totally banned in the European Union due to a suspicion on coal tar possessing cancer causing properties.

Whereas, in North America, this hair color can be sold provided it has a cautionary statement on the product indicating the presence of coal tar and to conduct a skin allergy test 12 hours before hair dying. Thus, such variable regulations across different regions are forcing manufacturers to use different ingredients accordingly.
