Hyaluronic Acid Market Trends

  • Increasing Application of Hyaluronic Acid in Cosmetic & Personal Care Products to Boost the Market Growth

Hyaluronic acid is well known for its skin benefits such as alleviating dry skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, redness, and dermatitis. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the cells of the skin, making it an excellent moisturizer. It helps improve skin hydration and production of collagen, fight free radicals, and maintain skin elasticity. It also acts as a humectant, a category of skincare ingredient that is hygroscopic, which draws moisture from the surroundings. With the growing demand for anti-aging products and multifunctional personal care products among consumers, personal care product manufacturers are adopting multi-functional and multiple ingredients in a single product trend. According to the report published by the United Nations, in 2020, the geriatric population (aged 65 years and above) was 727 million, and has projected that it will increase double fold to 1.5 billion people by 2050. The geriatric population in all regions is expected to increase from 9.3% In 2020 to 16% by 2050 The growth in the population across the globe is expected to increase the adoption of anti-aging creams and lotions, which consequently is expected to fuel the demand for hyaluronic acid across the globe. Another industry surrounded by the uncertainty of the impact of the COVID-19 is medical aesthetics. Social distancing requirements and sharp cuts in consumers' discretionary income during the COVID-19 crisis have hit the medical aesthetics business hard.

Moreover, the players in the personal care and cosmetics market are focusing on strategic growth such as product launches, expansion, and acquisitions to attract a large consumer base and establish their position. For instance, L’Oréal launched Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum in October 2018, which is now the No. 1 mass-market serum. According to Nielsen, it has already become so popular that one is sold every minute in the US.  Thus, the growth of the global cosmetics market is expected to increase the demand for hyaluronic acid and drive the growth of the global market during the review period.
