The Global Haircare sector was valued at US$71 billion in 2017; of which Americas was the leading region with a value share of 38.2% in 2017, whilst Asia-Pacific is forecast to record the fastest value CAGR of 7.5% during 2017-2022.

Falling global unemployment rate and the subsequent rise in disposable income levels are major factors influencing consumer spending on personal care. The projected global economic improvements, led by strong growth in Asia’s developing economies, will drive growth in the hair care sector.

However, with consumers’ rising concerns about sustainability and increasing pressure from animal welfare organizations to ban animal testing of personal care products, manufacturers face the challenges of seeking alternative testing methods and replacing conventional packaging materials with sustainable ones.

Furthermore, it can be noted that the global haircare sector is highly fragmented, with the top four brands - Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Dove, and Clear - accounting for a combined value share of 16.7% in 2017. Procter & Gamble emerged as the leading business, owning two of the top four brands in 2017.
