COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Almost every industry has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, either favorably or unfavourably. Sales of basic necessities like food, medicine and health equipment have surged. Supply and demand for lifestyle products have been hampered. Daily necessities as well as cleanliness and health items have seen growth due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus around the world. Since hair removal wax has become part of hygiene products, the market for these items has grown tremendously. However, the lockdown situation hampered the production of wax products as well as the supply chain, resulting in a shortage of goods in the market.

Market Growth Factors

Changing lifestyles are expected to increase demand for products

The demand for waxing products is mainly driven by the need to maintain a well-groomed physical appearance. The purchasing power of consumers is increasing due to changing lifestyles, rising standards of living and increasing disposable incomes. This impacts customer spending on hair removal services at salons or spas. Many professional spas and salons purchase hair removal products. In the near future, this is expected to have a continuous impact on the depilatory wax market.

Growing demand for ready-to-use wax strips

Ready-to-use hair removal strips are a hair removal method that already contains wax, eliminating the need to heat and apply wax during hair removal. In the long term, pre-made wax strips are more effective. For the majority of body parts including the bikini area, face, armpits and legs, pre-made wax strips are preferred as they are available in a range of sizes and shapes. These cold wax strips can quickly and easily remove hair from large areas when used at home.

Market restraining factors

Access to alternative products

Due to increasing customer choice, non-invasive and non-surgical hair removal methods are becoming increasingly popular. Alternatives to waxing include shaving, lotions, and laser hair removal techniques, as they are less painful and do not cause skin irritation or abrasion. In order to remove unwanted hair, men and women use shaving techniques such as razors and hair removal creams because they are cheaper and easier to use. This is considered to be a significant factor that can restrain the growth of the depilatory wax market.
