Key Highlights

  • The demand for different types of shampoos for various hair-related problems with multifunctionality is expected to drive the shampoo market owing to the increasing prevalence of hair disorders such as hair fall, oily hair, and many others, thus meeting the consumer's challenges. The players have started customizing and introducing shampoo according to consumer needs, further boosting the market revenue.
  • Additionally, companies are reaching out to consumers through various distribution channels, such as online and other distribution channels. For instance, according to an e-commerce database organization (2021), amazon is by far the biggest online store in Germany. Approximately 50% of all beauty brands in the country have their own online stores, and some also operate through Amazon stores.
  • One of the key elements that are leading to the growth of the Europes dry shampoo market has the unique selling point of removing oil from the scalp without the use of water is fueled by fast-paced lifestyles, long workdays, cold climate, particularly across Northern Europe and a preference for living in heavily polluted cities.
  • Moreover, consumers increasingly prefer items made with natural components. As a result of linking synthetic compounds such as sulfates and parabens to frizzy hair, flaky scalps, and split ends, they are being avoided by consumers. For instance, in January 2021, the Estée Lauder Companies Inc. (Aveda), the plant-powered hair care brand, announced that all of its hair care, hair color, body care, makeup, and aroma products are 100% vegan in response to the growing demand for cruelty-free hair care products.

Europe Shampoo Market Trends

Rising Popularity of Natural and Organic Shampoos

  • A high percentage of European consumers base their purchase decisions on the type of ingredients available in hair care formulations. Over the past few years, consumers worldwide have been increasing their awareness of the harmful effects of certain compounds, such as paraben and aluminum compounds, present in hair care products. These compounds tend to disturb the scalp's natural pH levels, resulting in hair damage, breakout, dry scalp, and improper growth, among other problems.
  • However, organic and natural shampoos do not interfere with the alkaline acid levels in the scalp, thus preventing damage to the hair. This factor has increased the demand for natural and organic hair care products and is expected to boost the market's growth in the coming years.
  • ​Furthermore, purchases are made based on a product's efficacy, duration of protection, and clinical properties. As a result, several hair care product manufacturers have been focused on incorporating nature-inspired ingredients, such as plant-inspired and premium botanical ingredients, coupled with multi-functional properties to increase the appeal of their formulations among consumers.
  • Organic and natural products are emerging as significant product segments in the European hair care market. With rising awareness regarding scalp-related issues and hair fall, consumers are increasingly inclined towards herbal and natural hair care solutions.
  • Data from the National Health Statistics from 2022 indicate that about 8 million women in the United Kingdom experience hair loss. Manufacturers continuously expand their product portfolio with evolving consumer needs for shampoo products comprising natural ingredients.
  • For example, in February 2021, Hain Celestial Group's brand Jason launched plant-based shampoo plus conditioner for men. Moreover, consumers are looking for shampoos infused with oils, including blended formulations and pure organics, thus, providing healthy fixes for dry and damaged hair.

Germany Holds a Significant Share in the Market

  • Consumers in the country face varied hair care-related problems, among which hair loss and oily scalp are the most common. Moreover, according to the National Health Science (2022), 96 to 93% of consumers in Germany, France, and Italy are concerned regarding environmental pollution in their country, which affects hair health, and 36% of European consumers identify pollution as a major source of aggression on skin and hair damage.
  • These problems are mainly due to weather conditions and pollution, which lead consumers to shampoo their hair daily, removing the natural oils in the hair or scalp. Thus, the sebum glands produce more oil, turning the scalp oily. This creates immense demand for damage control and thinning control hair care products, like shampoo, conditioner, hair oil, and diverse portfolio.
  • As a result, various international hair care brands, like Procter and Gamble and Unilever PLC, compete to capture a significant share in the segment studied by retailing a wide range of damage-control hair care products. Additionally, the market has witnessed a steady increase in consumer demand for zero-waste or recyclable products owing to growing awareness regarding climate change and an increased desire to improve sustainability. Younger consumers are driving interest in sustainability and eco-friendliness, while consumers across demographics and a large section of the ex-pat population are concerned about potential health risks from using chemicals in products. Furthermore, the manufacturers leverage online platforms optimally by selling their products through their own websites and listing the products on popular e-retailing websites to improve their brand visibility and reachability.​
