Sun Protection Products Market Overview

COVID-19 Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a mildly negative impact on the sun protection products market, with the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities and weakened demand. Amidst the continuous efforts to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2, leading companies are striving to bolster their supply chains and accelerate their operations to control further losses. Additionally, with the gradual lifting up of the lockdown across countries and the novel coronavirus under control, the global market for sun protection products should be able to recover quickly in subsequent years.

Market Dynamics


Sales Fostered by Growing Cases of Skin Cancer and Other Issues

The sun protection products industry is significantly boosted by the growing awareness among people about the toxic effects of the UV rays and the rising need to address the same. UV rays are known to lead to severe skin damage that includes dark spots and wrinkles, which can ultimately boost skin cancer progress. Overexposure to these rays also cause inflammation of cornea as well as conjunctiva and could even foster cataract development. Sun protection products are therefore witnessing strong demand as these provide a protective shield by making a layer on the skin, thereby reflecting the rays from the surface.

Furthermore, product innovation and promotional campaigns across various countries also fuel the market growth for sun protection products. Manufacturers are progressively launching new products that can cater to the evolving tastes of the well-informed consumers in the global market. Manufacturers are constantly developing sun protection products that have a higher number of refined formulations, and extra skin care benefits along with better texture. These products are easy to apply and give additional coverage and protection against sun rays as well as pollution, which helps foster their demand among consumers.


Soaring Consumer Preference for Anti-Aging Products to be a Prime Opportunity

Accelerated consumer preference for sun protection products that have anti-aging benefits has emerged as a significant opportunity for the leading firms. Players are also using antioxidants in their products to prohibit DNA damage by preventing free radicals that result in wrinkles and aging.


Inclusion of Harmful Chemicals in Products to Weaken Sales

Presence of harmful ingredients like octinoxate, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide and homosalate in sun protection products can discourage the sales in the near future. The fat that these chemicals cause endocrine disruption, hormone disruption, contact allergies and organ system toxicity can prove to be quite challenging for the companies to sustain the consumer demand.
