“The deodorant/antiperspirant market can expect to see growth in the coming years due to near universal consumer usage of these products along with a lack of competitive alternatives. However, the market faces some challenges: the women’s segment has experienced a decline for the first time in years, consumers continue to demand long lasting products regardless of the many options currently available, and demographic shifts have the potential to impact usage. Companies and brands will need to explore ways to reinvigorate the women’s segment, determine new methods to prove/communicate product efficacy, and address the needs of the segments that may impact overall usage.”

Some questions answered in this report include:
The U.S. deodorant and antiperspirant market remained largely unaffected by the recession and has seen steady growth in the past few years. Mintel expects that this market will continue to grow into 2017. This market benefits from high market penetration and near universal usage of these products, which consumers depend on to protect them from sweat and body odor. Many consumers look to these products as forming an essential part of their daily personal care routine, and use deodorants/antiperspirants to maintain daily hygiene.
A key driver for market growth in the past few years has been the integration of enhanced performance, functional, and cosmetic benefits, and this will continue to be important for driving sales and keeping consumers engaged in the category in the coming years. The men’s and unisex product segments are currently performing well, whereas the women’s product segment has struggled somewhat. New innovation or the inclusion of greater beauty/cosmetic benefits will be keys in reinvigorating this segment. Long lasting performance is the most desired product attribute across demographics and performance and functional attributes have become “foundational” product requirements to capture consumers’ attention and subsequent purchase.
