Aromatherapy Diffusers Market Trends

The global aromatherapy diffusers market size was estimated at USD 1,794.4 million in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2024 to 2030. The market growth is anticipated to be driven by increasing consumer disposable income coupled with the need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Moreover, numerous health benefits of essential oils are projected to fuel the product demand. Rising awareness, particularly in developed economies, regarding the various benefits of aromatherapy for stress, depression, and anxiety relief is anticipated to boost the demand for various kinds of diffusers. Inhalation of essential oils through diffusers has no direct side effects unless consumed orally or applied directly to the skin. This factor acts as a major growth driver for the market.

U.S. Aromatherapy Diffusers Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The U.S. occupies the majority share of the North America regional market. Ultrasonic diffusers and nebulizers are widely used by therapists in this region owing to the capability of the products to preserve the therapeutic contents of the oils. In addition, favorable laws and regulations for the cultivation of essential oil crops are expected to boost the regional product demand in the coming years. The demand for relaxing and pleasantly aromatic ambiance at offices is likely to positively influence the number of products in the market. The expansion of end-use industries in emerging markets has also played a role in propelling market growth. However, the limited availability of raw materials, such as essential oils, and stringent laws in contradiction of harvesting and cultivation, are considered to be restraining factors for industry growth.

Ecosystem depletion on account of extensive extraction of essential oils coupled with growing environmental concerns regarding the disposal of plastic and glass used for manufacturing the diffusers is expected to hinder the growth. To overcome such challenges, the market has shifted its focus toward developing environmentally friendly products using bio-based BPA-free plastics. The capital cost for aromatherapy diffuser manufacturing is high; hence, companies have been outsourcing their production to countries, such as China and India, with inexpensive labor and raw materials. Moreover, the presence of a large, unregulated domestic market in Asia Pacific and Middle East has been posing a threat to major multinational corporations, in terms of the low-cost technology offered, creating a price gap in the global market.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market growth stage is high, and pace of its growth is accelerating. The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation owing to rapid technological advancements, such as diffusers with Bluetooth capabilities, enabling users to play soothing music or control the device through a mobile app. Furthermore, ultrasonic technology has become standard, providing a quiet and efficient diffusion process.

Aromatherapy Diffusers Market Concentration & Characteristics

Key strategies undertaken by major players include new product development, strategic partnerships, and expansions. In March 2022, The Gift of Scent launchedUSB diffusers. Consumers can choose between two scents, lavender or peppermint, for The Gift of Scent's Aromatherapy USB-powered essential oil diffusers.

Many consumers are looking for products that are environmentally friendly and have a low carbon footprint. As a result, manufacturers are increasingly using eco-friendly materials and incorporating energy-efficient features in their products. Which will further drive the product demand.

The industry is impacted by various regulations and standards aimed at promoting sustainability and eco-friendliness. For instance, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program offers certification for buildings that meet certain sustainability standards, including indoor air quality.

Product Insights

The ultrasonic product segment held a significant share of 66.9% in 2023. The segment growth can be attributed to high product demand on account of its characteristics to retain the therapeutic properties of essential oils and create a pleasing ambiance. Ultrasonic diffusers use electronic frequencies to cause vibrations in the water, that break essential oil into tiny micro particles, thus, dispersing the oil in a fine mist.

The nebulizer segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period as the product offers the best diffusion of essential oils in large rooms without losing the therapeutic value of oils. However, it is known to cause sound disturbances as it tends to vaporize and disperse oil at a faster rate compared to its counterparts.

Distribution Channel Insights

Aromatherapy diffusers are supplied through numerous channels including retailers, supermarkets and hypermarkets, e-commerce, and others. The retail segment is anticipated to witness substantial growth over the forecast period as consumers prefer retail stores over other options owing to the personalized services offered. Consumer-buying behavior has been reshaped over the past few years owing to factors, such as product availability, variety, selection of desired delivery period, and lucrative offers and discounts; prompting consumers to opt for retail shopping. However, factors, including budget constraints, make online shopping convenient as consumers tend to focus on products that fit their budget without compromising on the content, brand, and quality.

The e-commerce segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030. An increasing number of internet users in emerging and developed countries is likely to propel the demand for products that are available through online channels. In addition, the trend of online shopping is on the rise on account of the ease of accessibility. Supermarkets & hypermarkets will be the largest segment, in terms of revenue share. Manufacturers prefer selling their products to supermarkets and hypermarkets since it is easier to deal with one large retailer than to supply to several small independent retailers. In addition, supermarkets generate more sales compared to other channels as they have access to a larger consumer base. New entrants in the market opt to sell their products in supermarkets and hypermarkets, as it is an efficient way to increase brand awareness.

Application Insights

Aromatherapy diffusers are widely used in various applications, such as residential, commercial, and spas. The spa & relaxation application segment dominated the market in 2023. It is also anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR from 2024 to 2030 owing to the increasing consumer spending on spa vacations and treatments. Most spas procure diffusers and essential oils in the form of kits at low prices. The kits are sold in bundles of 10 to 20 and comprise different types of essential oils, including eucalyptus, lavender, and lemongrass, that help with various health problems, from anxiety to sinus issues.
