Industry Insights

The global men’s grooming products market size was valued at USD 55.0 billion in 2018. Men’s grooming across the globe has witnessed a paradigm shift in recent years. The idea behind personal grooming is to maintain basic hygiene and cleanliness of the body parts. The major factor boosting the growth of this market is rising beauty consciousness among men. Increasing demand for male toiletries other than shaving products is also driving the market.

Men’s grooming covers various products ranging from hair care to skin care to shave care. Rapid innovations and development in various grooming solutions like hair spray, hair perfumes, and beard wax are offering tremendous growth potential to the market.

Global men’s grooming products market

High disposable income and the hunger to climb the corporate ladder have redefined the needs of male grooming, and in the process, created an attractive market for companies dealing in men’s products. The men’s grooming market is one of the fastest growing businesses in the consumer brands space. Rising awareness regarding the overall body care among men and growing influence of social trends are supporting the market growth.

Growing demand for the e-commerce segment is exponentially driving the market. A large percentage of the young crowd is the potential use of various online portals, which in general provide more knowledge about the variety of grooming solutions available in the market, thereby driving the demand for various products. Considering this, an online beauty retailer, Nykaa is looking to tap the billion dollar men’s grooming market in India with its exclusive portal for men called Nykaa Man. The men’s category is one of the fastest growing categories on Nykaa’s main platform and it expects this segment to contribute 10% to the company’s total revenue.

Despite an evident demand for such grooming solutions, private equity firms and venture capitalists have traditionally not invested much into this sector due to brand monopoly in various products, such as in the shaving product category, Gillet has around 50% of market share. Brand loyalty is also one of the major barriers to this market since customers highly rely on the products they have used and are not open to discovering other brands. However, stringent regulations pertaining to composition and increasing consumer preference for organic products and natural ingredients are likely to play a major role in the market growth in upcoming years.

Product Type Insights

Fragrances accounted for the largest market share of 38.3% in 2018. Fragrances consist of various kinds of deodorants and perfumes used by men. Different kinds of aromatic substances are used for the manufacturing of other beauty and personal products. Fragrances and aroma arouse the human senses and hence people prefer different kinds of fragrances in their beauty products to attract others.

The skin care segment is the fastest growing segment in the market, expanding at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. It includes products like moisturizers, face-wash, and soaps. Growing concerns among men to look good and make a positive impression on others are one of the reasons for the faster growth of the skin care segment.

Distribution Channel Insights

On the basis of distribution channel, the market has been segmented into supermarket/hypermarket, convenience stores, pharmacy, and e-commerce. The convenience stores segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. E-commerce is poised to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to growing internet penetration. Developing regions including Asia Pacific are likely to benefit extensively from booming e-commerce sector, which is attributed to rapid urbanization.

Global men’s grooming products market

Though e-commerce has gained significance in the retail business to a large extent, it accounts for a small percentage of the total retail sales across the world. This can be attributed to growing consumer need for trying the products before purchasing them, resulting in an increased demand for hypermarkets or retail chains. Store based retailers have designed specific store layouts to meet the shopping needs of men in the category. Countries such as India, China, and other Southeast Asian countries are exhibiting robust industrial development and rapid urbanization. Rise in penetration of internet and internet of things (IoT) is expected to assist the growth of the market.

Regional Insights

Europe emerged as the largest regional market in 2018 owing to growing demand for skin and hair care products among men. Increasing focus on the maintenance of a youthful and presentable appearance is a key factor driving the market in Europe. Young consumers are increasingly using items such as deodorants, powders, perfumes, and body lotions to enhance their appearance and attractiveness among their peer groups.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing regional market, expanding at a CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period on account of flourishing e-commerce industry and rising disposable income of the consumers. Men are regular users of body shaving products and skin enhancement cosmetics in the APAC region, thereby boosting the regional market growth.
