What you need to know

Immediate future: next 2 years

Customisation is still in its infancy, with huge opportunities to meet demands. For NPD and trend inspiration, Brazil continues to be the go-to haircare market, given its size, diversity and engagement levels. Hair health will maintain importance and be inspired by other categories, as more consumers want to deal with damage.

Planning ahead: next 5 years

Scalp care will take a new direction with a focus on balancing the microbiome for optimal health. Significant investment is required for sustainability, and zero-waste concerns will boost motivation. The salon environment will become a more sensorial experience for men and women, with heightened expert guidance.

Market overview: key data

The haircare market is well established and shows slow growth. The US continues to lead sales in each sector, although China is going from strength-to-strength and has huge potential; Brazil remains a key market, despite economic instability; and India is poised for growth over the next five years.
