Description

This report provides comprehensive and current information and analysis of the US facial skincare market including US facial skincare market size, facial skin care market share, anticipated market forecast, relevant market segmentation, and industry trends for the facial skincare market in the US.

Current market landscape

In the US skincare market, 51% of consumers consider proven efficacy as a primary purchase factor for facial skincare, making it the top-cited attribute that consumers look for when shopping for facial skincare.

While price hikes due to inflation could lead some shoppers to trade down to less-expensive options, category players that are open and transparent with consumers about price increases could earn longterm loyalty.

Future market trends in US facial skincare

In addition to the rise of savvy shopping behaviors due to economic upheaval, private label brands are increasingly taking steps to improve quality and compete with more mid-tier brands, intensifying competition within the market.

Given the elevated level of importance being placed on skin health, category players that pivot their strategies to incorporate and promote more skin health benefits will see success in today’s wellness-focused environment.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the skin care market in the United States

This report, written by Olivia Guinaugh, a leading analyst in the Beauty and Personal Care sector, delivers in-depth commentary and analysis in this US facial skincare market report to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

The facial skincare market has seen steady growth since 2017, which can partially be attributed to the essential nature of the category and stable market penetration. Thanks to an increased focus on hygiene and an intensified need for self-care, the overall category did not suffer major loses in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, although market growth was slower than originally anticipated before COVID-19. Looking ahead, Mintel expects more consumers will embrace the “less is more” approach to skincare routines, fueling the demand for multi-benefit products that don’t compromise on efficacy. Whether it’s to reduce their environmental footprint, streamline their routine or better protect their skin barrier, some consumers are already abandoning multi-step routines in favor of more simplistic approaches, sometimes referred to ‘skinimalism’.
