Rapid development in production technologies, evolving fashion trends, and hairstyles, and the availability of various attractive accessories have driven consumers to purchase hair accessories. The introduction of products such as clips, barrettes, ties, and headbands in trendy designs, materials, and shapes that are functional, and fashionable has also been spurring the growth of the market.

Healthy, glossy, and well-groomed hairdos have become crucial in the routine among consumers in the U.S. to enhance their appearance. Thus, individuals take care of their hair, experiment with different haircuts, and do not shy away from trying trendy and innovative accessories as per their desire, which is fueling the demand among consumers.

A significant number of millennials are following internet celebrities and influencers to understand and enhance their skills in personal grooming, makeup, and fashion. Over the last few years, consumers have also been showing a preference for products that are easy to use.

Consumer demand has been increasing over the last few years, and this trend is likely to continue in the upcoming years.

Hair Accessories Market Trends

The rapid advancements in advanced manufacturing technologies followed by the prevalence of diverse fashion trends, haircuts, and the increased accessibility of appealing accessories projected to entice a broader customer base are some factors that have fueled the market expansion. Factors such as an increased inclination for fashionable goods that serve functional purposes and experimenting with trendy hairstyles are expected to drive the market growth. The introduction of new items such as clips, barrettes, ties, and headbands with innovative materials, shapes, and sizes that are both useful and fashionable is anticipated to augment the growth of hair accessories market in the coming years.

It is crucial to know the hair type prior selecting a hair item and accessories. People are spending more on garments, fashion, and accessories with the rise in their disposable income. In addition, the increase in population of working women is shaping the market growth as the market witnessed a rise in spending on trendy accessories. These factors have led the market toward growth opportunities.

Distribution Channel Insights

The general stores segment accounted for a revenue share of 47.8% in 2020. The segment is projected to retain its market dominance throughout the forecast period owing to the high consumer inclination toward purchasing hair accessories from general stores as these places enjoy high customer preferences. General stores include small-to-large neighborhood stores.

The online platform is expected to register a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2028. The shift in consumers’ shopping behavior is one of the major factors driving the sales through the online channel. Growing consumer preference for the online platform has prompted companies to offer products through this channel.

Benefits of online shopping, such as wide availability of products, the convenience of shopping anytime and anywhere, doorstep delivery, safe payment getaways, and discount offers, have been encouraging consumers to opt for the online distribution channel. This has influenced the key players in the market to offer products directly to consumers (D2C) or through third-party distributors such as Amazon.

Product Insights

The elastics and ties segment held the largest revenue share of 32.3% in 2020 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of the elastics and ties segment is attributed to the availability of a wide range of products in terms of design, shape, and material.

Earlier, these products were either available in leather or rubber; however, with improvements in production technologies, manufacturers have started developing products using different fabrics like silk, and mesh to create a trendier and more polished product that not only supports the hair but also accessorizes the outfit. 

Global Hair Accessories Market share, by distribution channel

The wigs and extensions segment is anticipated to be the second-fastest-growing product segment with a CAGR of 8.0% from 2021 to 2028. The wigs and extensions segment has been witnessing significant popularity owing to the introduction of human hair-based wigs and extensions, which are of superior quality compared to those made from synthetic materials. Wigs and extensions are extremely trending and are in high demand among consumers with curly and textured hair.

Asia Pacific dominated the market for hair accessories and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 38.3% in 2020. The increasing number of working women, especially in the corporate sector and fashion industry, has driven the demand in developing countries across the region, such as India, Indonesia, and China. According to BRINK News in March 2019, Asia had a working women population of 49.8% across the region, with a high percentage of the working women population in East Asia (63.3%).

Wigs act as easier alternatives to hair transplant procedures and their abundant production in the region is expected to boost product demand over the forecast period.
