Anti-Aging Skin Care
Along with feeling great comes looking great. The global anti-aging market is being driven primarily by the rise in the aging global population, especially the nations that hold the majority of the baby boomer population. The population is comprised of individuals that have, for long periods, been concerned with physical health and beauty. Individuals born between 1946 and 1964 are the biggest consumers of anti-aging services and products. More than 8,000 individuals are added per day to the count of people above 65 and this trend is expected to continue for the next 18 years.
By 2021, the global skin care market is expected to be valued at about 154 billion U.S. dollars. In 2014, facial anti-aging skin care products were the second highest grossing skin care category in the United States with sales of approximately 1.15 billion U.S. dollars. The United States is also the biggest market when it comes to skin care sales. The country generated sales of about 2.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2014.
The anti-aging market ranges from cosmetic products (anti-wrinkle products, anti-stretch mark products, hair color), services (anti-pigmentation, acne therapy, liposusction, eye-lid surgery, sclerotherapy) to devices (UV absorbers, laser aesthetics, microderm abrasion devices, anti-cellulite treatment devices etc). The market is extremely competitive and growth is influenced by lifestyle, healthy living as well as ethnic and environmental consciousness.
