Description

The men’s personal care market is expected to reach $4.4 billion in 2016, representing growth of 15% when looking at the period from 2011-16. However, sales growth has slowed in recent years as the category stabilized and has been impacted by competition from a growing number of male-specific and unisex options. Future growth will rely on encouraging men to increase product usage and expand their product inventory by emphasizing male-specific benefits and highlighting packaging and format innovations.

This report examines the following issues:

  • Category growth decelerates
  • Men primarily using essentials
  • Men unfazed by ads

This Report covers the US market for personal care products that are designated specifically for men. The product categories include:

  • Men’s APDO (antiperspirants/deodorants).
