The China haircare market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period 2020 - 2025.

Key Highlights

Also, the growing demand for organic/natural products and customized products for personal grooming has become one of the primary concerns for individuals. Among the organic hair care products, owing to its wide usage, shampoo and conditioner held a majority share in the global organic haircare market in 2019.
  • However, factors such as rising awareness regarding the potential side effects of hair care products are restraining market growth.
