Report Overview

The global dry shampoo market size was valued at USD 3.46 billion in 2019 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% over the forecast period. The market is mainly driven due to some of the specific features such as absorption of excess oil and grease without the use of water, along with providing shiny and fresh look as compared to other normal wet shampoos. The growth of the market is also attributed to the growing consumer preference for waterless products due to the scarcity of water in major countries around the world.

The rise in the number of product innovations such as the addition of organic and natural content by market players has also contributed to the growth of the industry. For instance, in May 2018, KAIA NATURALS launched a dry shampoo, namely Takesumi Detox Overnight Dry Shampoo with natural content to eliminate odor and sweat and absorb oil and impurities from hair. An increasing number of hair related issues among the women population and changing hairstyle patterns are giving rise to innovations in products. Moreover, improving living standards among the working and high-class population is expected to contribute to the demand for these products, thereby driving the growth of the global market.

U.S. dry shampoo market

Demand in the younger population possesses a huge impact on the hair care products market growth. This is attributed to the increasing usage of these products among the working population due to time management issues in their schedule. However, a major section of the population also tends to spend a large amount on premium category hair care products.

The cost of these products is high than the normal and wet shampoo type, thereby increasing the sales revenue in the industry. Moreover, increasing penetration of the global companies such as L’Oreal SA; Johnson and Johnson; Avon Products Inc.; Procter and Gamble; Helen of Troy Limited; Unilever; and Estee Lauder Companies Inc. in the dry shampoo category provides lucrative growth opportunities for the market.

The impact of e-commerce channels, social media advertisements, and many beauty specialist retailers provide a lucrative opportunity for the growth of personal care products in the market. The market growth is also attributed to a rise in the purchasing power of the consumers and inclination towards premium-priced dry shampoo products in the market. Moreover, demand for the anti-aging products from generation X due to fresh and shiny look from products is likely to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Dry Shampoo Market Trends

The rising consumer awareness regarding wellness solutions has been leading to an uptick in product adoption across spas and salons worldwide. At a macro level, a steady rise in spa and salon establishments worldwide has been driving the growth of the dry shampoo market. According to a report published by the International SPA Association (ISPA), the U.S. spa industry surpassed the USD 18 billion mark in 2018, a USD 800 million increase from the previous year.

The increase in revenue growth was driven by a steady rise in the number of spa visits countrywide. According to ISPA, the average revenue per visit in the U.S. increased to USD 93.7 per customer in 2018, a USD 1.20 increase from 2017.

According to the Global Wellness Institute, a U.S.-based non-profit organization, the total number of spa locations worldwide increased from 121,595 in 2015 to more than 149,000 in 2017. As per the institute, spa facility revenues contribute approximately USD 93 billion to the global spa economy annually. Consumers typically prefer spa & salon services for the professional information and advice these establishments offer concerning skin and hair.

The rising global demand for dry shampoo is also attributable to the increasing instances of product innovation across regions. While the developed markets of Europe and North America have witnessed significant market penetration over the years, there is a growing interest in marketing dry shampoo in emerging markets. This is particularly true for African countries where regular shampooing practices are considerably lower owing to concerns regarding the frail nature of the hair of certain populations in Africa and the African diaspora.

While dry shampoos containing natural ingredients are gaining immense popularity worldwide, rising consumer concerns regarding the relevance of alcohol-containing aerosol dry shampoos continue to impede market growth. Recently, there have been growing consumer concerns about a possible link between ovarian cancer and asbestos-free talcum powder.

As a sizable number of commercially available dry shampoos contain talc, a mineral that can contain asbestos particles in its natural state, the demand for these products is likely to shrink considerably throughout the forecast period. Though there is no known case of cancer from dry shampoos containing talc, the American Cancer Society a U.S.-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer encourages consumers to avoid using such talc-based products until further research has been done. Despite its 'hair health halo,' many consumers complain about the damage caused to the hair or scalp by the overuse of dry shampoos. The overuse of dry shampoos without washing the hair can lead to particle buildup on the user’s scalp, leading to fungal or bacterial infection in the hair follicle.

Moreover, an increase in demand for waterless products, along with natural ingredients such as charcoal content, is likely to drive the segment over the forecast period. For instance, in December 2017, IGK launched a dry shampoo in spray form with black charcoal content to clean hair and absorb excess oil and grease.

The powder form is anticipated to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 8.3% from 2019 to 2025.

This form type finds its application among consumers that more concerned about the reaction of chemicals to hair. The powder mixes well with hair and scalp and provides even nourishment to every part of the head than other forms such as spray and foam. For instance, Captain Blankenship provides a mermaid dry shampoo in powdered form with organic arrowroot powder, kaolin clay, and organic essential oils.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline channel accounted for the largest share of 87.4% in the year 2018. Growth in offline sales is attributed to the increasing preference among consumers to access products physically and verify the quality before purchasing. Moreover, searching for different products through stores with access to real-time bargaining from shops is likely to boost the segment growth over the forecast period. Moreover, ease in price comparison for different categories and brands is driving the segment.
