Perfume and Fragrances Market Trends



  • Companies announce innovative fragrances are driving the market growth


Market CAGR for perfume and fragrances is being driven as key players introduce innovative, touchless scent devices and Al-based solutions for regular scent users. These solutions include offering a scent profile for individual users and proposing a scent based on their aroma preferences. This will attract consumers toward such products, accelerating market growth. For instance, in April 2021, SEPHORA, LVMH owned multinational retailer, introduced 'MAISON 21G', an innovative and touchless scent bar and artificial intelligence (AI)-powered application for the company's Hong Kong beauty retailers. This will attract consumers to buy scented items in Hong Kong.


Additionally, the changing fashion trends also have a primary influence on the market, and key manufacturers are focusing on developing and launching unique fragrances that attract diverse consumer bases across the globe. In addition, light-scented fragrances are also gaining attraction among the millennial and Gen Z population, encouraging manufacturers to develop such products. Manufacturers' increasing focus on introducing natural fragrances in the premium category owing to the rising concerns regarding allergies caused by synthetic perfume ingredients is another significant factor driving the industry growth.


Moreover, consumers prefer waterless hygiene items that reduce unpleasant odors immediately. Besides, they prefer fragrances made up of sustainable materials such as vanilla beans, balsams, citrus oil, and others to avoid headaches and eye & ear disorders due to chemical-based ones. This will offer newer growth opportunities to key players. Additionally, key players' launch of aromatherapy-based scents is likely to ease their product sales. For instance, in August 2020, Vectair Systems launched 'Sensamist,' a range of aromatherapy-based scent diffusers in the American market.


Moreover, the growing expenditure by women on cosmetics and personal well-being has also contributed to expanding the perfume market size. The rising participation of women in the workforce is further anticipated to motivate them to use premium personal care products to encourage their overall presentability and leave a lasting image in significant meetings and gatherings. The rising number of female corporate workers drives the perfume and fragrances market revenue.
