The global deodorant market size was valued at USD 25.61 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 26.96 billion in 2024 to USD 42.18 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.76% during the forecast period. Europe dominated the deodorant market with a market share of 34.71% in 2023.

Deodorant has become one of the popular products as it has the capability to keep the underarm fresh and prevent the body from producing an unpleasant smell even in warm weather. The increasing growth of global warming helps to increase the consumption as it results in a large number of people experiencing the release of odor and sweat from their body. For instance, according to data published by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York, in 2018, the global temperature rose to 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit which is greater as compared to 1951-1980.

Additionally, the growing demand of the product by people who are involved in health and fitness activities such as jogging, yoga, bicycle riding, and others will further propel the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the global market owing to a lack of production, limited raw material, national & international trade barrier, and others. Furthermore, due to the lockdown in developing and developed countries, deodorant manufacturers have been forced to close their production facilities due to labor shortages. Additionally, many cosmetic stores were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the complete shutdown of borders and the implementation of lockdown practices across the world adversely affected the market growth.

Deodorant Market Trends

Growing Popularity of Stick and Organic Deodorants to Propel Market Growth

The rising awareness among the global population toward a healthy and fresh lifestyle is driving the product demand. Stick deodorant which is in solid form and non-sticky in nature is now popularly being used as it has the ability to hold odor for an extended period of time. For instance, as claimed by Nivea, its pearl & beauty antiperspirant deodorant stick offers 48 hours’ protection, leaving the underarms smooth, soft, and beautiful.

Furthermore, organic deodorant is expected to attract more customers toward the product in the coming years owing to its skin-friendliness, proven excellence in the elimination of odor, aluminum-free nature, and others. Additionally, organic deodorant doesn’t cause stain on clothes which is also an essential factor in boosting the product demand. For instance, considering the growing demand, Shahnaz Husain Group announced the launch of herbal and organic deodorant for the Indian market in 2018.

By Packaging Material Analysis

Plastic Segment to Hold Major Market Share Owing to Lower Cost

On the basis of packaging material, the market is divided into metal, plastic, and others. Plastic segment is projected to be the largest market shareholder. Plastic containers are considered to be durable, indicating that they have the ability to withstand a shock or a drop as compared to material such as glass or paper. This quality acts as a thriving factor for more demand for the product. Furthermore, due to its lower cost as compared to other raw materials, it is often chosen over other types of materials. Additionally, due to its lightweight nature, plastic deodorant is easy to carry around, which makes it very convenient to carry while traveling. According to ‘Facts and Figures about Materials, Waste and Recycling’ published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in 2017, about 14.5 million tons of plastic was being used in container and packaging produced in the U.S.Likewise, most manufacturers such as Unilever PLC, The Procter & Gamble Company, Spirit Nest, and others are utilizing large amount of plastic material for the production of deodorant stick, wipe, spray, roll-on, and others.

Due to large amount of waste generation and non-recyclable plastic deposition in the environment, more manufacturers are taking steps to prevent this issue. For instance, according to an article published by Unilever in November 2019, Dove is focusing on switching to new 100% recyclable plastic cans for its products, in Europe and North America. The company is committed to halving its usage of virgin plastics by 2025.

However, due to the durability and easier recycling process of metal as compared to plastic, it is projected to hold a significant share in the years to come.

Men Segment to Hold Dominant Market Share Driven by Greater Participation in Sports Activities

Based on end-user, the market is grouped into men and women. The men segment is projected to be the larger market shareholder owing to the larger number of men participating in sports activities such as basketball, football, cricket, and others. These sportsmen are increasingly inclined toward using deodorants in order to avoid the bad smell of sweating.  According to data published by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, in 2017-2018, in the U.S., the number of male NCAA student-athletes was about 278,614 nationwide, which is 56% of the student-athlete total population.
