Especially the markets of hair transplantation and hair-growth & hair-restoration products showed favorable sales, respectively.

Noteworthy Topics

In the hair market, increasing number of companies entered the business of fashion wigs for women, which led the prices to be on the fall. Also, hair growth services for young people have been popular. In the hair transplantation market, fiercer competition stemming from increase of hair transplantation clinics has brought about decrease in the unit price per customer. Recently, FUE hair transplantation that does not use a surgical knife has been popular. The market of hair-growth & hair-restoration products has been brisk, since the products for doctors have become highly competitive due to release of generic products and since the products for those other than doctors have increased as more companies entering the market. The hair care products market has been vitalized by each maker releasing the products with botanical appeal and by increasing demand of treatment agents that have the effect of repairing damaged hair without the need of rinsing out.

Future Outlook

The domestic hair care market is projected to attain 445,400 million yen, 100.5% of the size of the previous fiscal year. The domestic hair care market is likely to grow, though slightly, because of increase in the number of elderly and in the anti-aging demand by consumers.
