In 2021, the global laser hair removal market was valued at USD 464 million, which is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 22.64% from 2022 to 2027 and worth USD 569.05 million in 2022 and USD 1,578.74 million by 2027.
Laser hair removal is an effective method of removing unwanted hair from the leg, face, chin, arm, back, armpits, bikini line, and more. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive method for hair removal. The need for a fast and non-invasive hair removal method has led to various light sources for hair removal. Lasers can remove coarse black hair without damaging the surrounding skin. Lasers, in a fraction of a second, can process multiple hairs at the same time. The laser hair removal market is expected to grow in the forecast, owing to the growing demand for non-invasive hair removal procedures, the introduction of advanced technologies such as ultra-technology in laser hair removal, and the growing number of products approvals.
The global laser hair removal market is expected to be driven by the growth of technological innovations and advancements in the market, followed by an improved range of cosmetic laser-related products and services, increased demand for cosmetic laser devices, laser hair removal kits at home, increased levels of disposable income groups and growth of products in non-invasive hair removal services and procedures.
The increasing demand for hassle-free hair removal methods is expected to drive the laser hair removal market. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics, approximately 1,078,000 hair removal procedures were performed in 2019. Additionally, the growing preference for easy and at-home grooming kits is expected to drive the adoption of various hair removal techniques. Improving living standards and increasing the fashion sector is another growth factor expected to drive growth in this market. In addition, government support activities in emerging economies have compelled companies to develop advanced products, which has led to the efforts of various multinational companies, thus increasing the overall consumption of hair removal products in recent years. For example, a report on a statistical analysis of laser and pulsed light hair removal procedures performed in 2018 reveals that out of the total number of procedures, 2% were 18 years or younger, 41.6% between 19 and 34 years old, 42.5% were between 35 years old and 50 years old, 16.9% were between 51 and 64 years old and 2.5% were 65 years old or over. The growing concern for beauty and personal care has supported the growth of the laser hair removal market.
Factors such as the increasingly high cost of beauty devices, the high costs associated with treatment procedures, and the vulnerable nature of the supply of materials for laser hair removal may affect the market. In addition, the growing interest in other alternative hair removal devices/treatments such as razors, epilators, and wax strips is estimated to hamper the growth rate of the laser hair removal market throughout the forecast period.
The market is driven by the introduction of personalized treatment plans offered by the many clinics at affordable prices and the availability of laser devices that can be used at home without professional help. Moreover, the increasing consumer spending on grooming and self-care services is creating a positive outlook for the laser hair removal market.
The significant challenges in the laser hair removal market are the side effects due to the use of lasers. The limitations include specific side effects with usage that could be important for people with hypersensitive skin. Some of the normal side effects are redness, eye damage, skin conditions and discomfort, scabs, change in tone, etc. Moreover, the high cost of aftercare or post-laser treatment and the fluctuation of laser device maintenance are the factors that are holding back the growth of the laser hair removal market.
COVID-19 Impact on the global laser hair removal market:
Almost all sectors and businesses have been destroyed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the effect of Covid-19 in the laser hair removal market may not be as regrettable as the effect in other markets. Salons and esthetics centers have seen a significant decrease in revenues due to lockdown and slow market. Customers have chosen to avail of home kits for hair removal, mainly by the laser hair removal kits. The accessibility of these devices through e-commerce channels has led to offers of these items in all cases during the pandemic. Therefore, the effect of Covid-19 has been moderate in the laser hair removal market.
