The global false eyelashes market size was USD 1.14 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 1.26 billion in 2021 to USD 1.96 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 6.5% during the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with false eyelashes witnessing negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a stellar growth of 13.0% in 2020. The sudden fall in CAGR is due to the fake lashes market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Fashionistas commonly use fake eyelashes to make their natural lashes healthier and thicker. Such products are available in a variety of lengths and colors. Increasing consumer awareness regarding the availability of a variety of grooming products is mainly driving the market growth. Nowadays, cosmetic brands are collaborating with fashion celebrities to launch their premium-based eyelash products. For instance, in July 2021, Revlon Inc. introduced the ‘Revlon x Megan Thee Stallion Hot Girl Sunset collection,’ Megan Thee Stallion celebrity-inspired false eyelash collection for Houston (U.S.) consumers. 


Eye Makeup Trend Amid COVID-19 Pandemic to Boost Market

Nowadays, people are increasingly spending their time indoors to protect themselves from coronavirus infection. This has spiked the consumer demand for hygiene and grooming products. Furthermore, fashions seekers are increasingly using eye makeup products to maintain their face well-groomed while wearing face masks. Such a consumer trend has spiked the product demand amid the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, Alibaba.com, a Chinese e-commerce giant, reported 150% spike in its revenues from the eye makeup products category in the week ending 18th February 2020.

However, incidences of shutting down lash salons and hypermarkets due to government-imposed COVID-19 related lockdown restrictions in many countries have impacted the market growth. Additionally, limited human hair supplies and other supply chain issues amid the COVID-19 pandemic have hampered the product revenues. For instance, from December 2019 to August 2020, Local Foreign Trade Company under Alibaba cross-border platform reported a decline in the Chinese exports of the false eyelashes in the U.S. market from 60% to 40% of the total Chinese exports.

Customized Eyelash is a Prominent Trend

Rising consumer preference for customized fake eyelashes is offering newer market growth opportunities. Additionally, the rapidly growing popularity of the do-it-yourself (DIY) strip lashes among women worldwide accelerates product demand. Curved eyelashes significantly enhance the beauty of an individual. Therefore, rising consumer demand for curved lashes will drive the false eyelashes market growth.

Besides, evolving festival celebrations and fashion trends among the global population will support the product demand. Additionally, rising consumer preference for colored eyeshadows and false eyelashes offers key players newer business growth opportunities. For instance, in the third fiscal quarter of 2020, Shiseido Co. Ltd., a color cosmetics maker, reported a 194.8% jump in its revenues due to increased consumer demand for eye-color cosmetics worldwide.


Companies’ Recent Eyelashing Tools to Upsurge Product Demand

Nowadays, companies are introducing virtual eye lashing applications to enable people to enjoy their lash trials virtually. This will help the companies in their customer engagement activities, thereby driving their product revenues. For instance, in January 2018, Ardell Lashes & Beauty launched ‘YouCam Makeup,’ a virtual eye lashing application to enable people to virtually take eyelash trials.

Additionally, the companies' regular introduction of creative and innovative material-based fake lashes further supports future market development. For instance, in October 2019, Tori Belle Cosmetics LLC. introduced an innovative ‘Magnetude’ magnetic mascara and ‘Magnetude Illusion’ magnetic eyelashes in the global market.

Regular Companies’ Introduction of Eyelash-Related Marketing Campaigns to Support Market

Nowadays, key companies regularly introduce various marketing and promotional campaigns to increase their false eyelash products’ customer reach. Such companies' efforts will support the product demand worldwide. For instance, in February 2018, Parfums de Coeur, Ltd. owned Eylure brand collaborated with British TV presenter Emma Willis to launch its new collection of eyelashes.

Furthermore, the presence of a large number of beauty salons & spa-related establishments further supports the global product’s consumption rate. According to the surveyed data published by SBDC Net National Information ClearingHouse, as of May 2020, more than 80,000 beauty salons & barber shop-related establishments generated USD 20 billion in salon industry revenue in the U.S.


Incidences of Eye Infection to Limit the Product Demand

Incidences of eye infection and injuries due to formaldehyde compound-based eyelashes will limit the product demand. Additionally, incidences of natural eyelash damaging and swelling due to surgical eyelash-related procedures among people strongly affect market growth. Besides, huge competition from the local industry players and governmental import/export restrictions pose challenges to the market development worldwide.

Strip Eyelashes Segment to Hold a Significant Global Market Share

The market is segregated into strip lashes, individual flare, individual single, and others based on product type. Users can better avoid the incidences of eye injuries and swelling by the usage of strip lashes over other product types. Additionally, strip lashes are widely available in many different thickness lengths and curl styles compared to other product types. Such factors result in the strip lashes segment holding a significant global false eyelashes market share.

Nowadays, people increasingly face damaging eyelash issues due to the side effects of cancer-specific chemotherapy treatments. Cancer patients can better regain their lash hairs by the usage of such products permanently. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of cancer diseases and the growing awareness regarding the availability of such lashes among people are the factors that drive individual flare segmental growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, nearly 10 million people recorded died due to cancer disease worldwide. 

Besides, the growing popularity of customized eye lashing services among women fashionistas will drive the individual single segmental revenues. The others segment includes products such as magnetic lashes, middle eyelashes, and fantasy lashes. The others segment will grow faster as users can effectively make their lashes natural-looking and shiny by using magnetic and fantasy lashes. Additionally, higher prices of such products result in others segment generating considerable product revenues.

By Material Analysis

Human Hair Segment to Hold a Leading Market Position

The global market is segregated into human hair, synthetic hair, and others by material. The human hair segment holds a major global market share due to its cost-effectiveness and lightweight nature over other material types. Additionally, users can better avoid the incidences of lash irritation by the usage of human hair-based lashes over other material types. Such a factor makes the human hair segment generate considerable product revenues.

Easy consumers’ accessibility mainly drives the synthetic hair segment to the rubber, acrylic, and polymer material-based lashes of different colors, curls, and lengths. The others segment includes various materials such as mink, fur, and animal hairs. The others segment will grow at a considerable rate due to the wispy & fluffy nature of the mink and fur material-based lashes over other materials.

By Distribution Channel Analysis

Hypermarket & Supermarket Segment to Lead Market

The global fake eyelashes market is segregated into hypermarkets & supermarkets, specialty stores, online stores, and others by distribution channel. The hypermarkets & supermarkets segment will dominate the global market, owing to the wide availability of a variety of mass & premium category-based eye makeup products in these stores. Additionally, the regular provision of discounted cosmetic products by such stores further drives the consumers’ product demand.

Online stores will grow significantly due to the rising adoption of online shopping among the global population. For instance, from July 2019 to September 2020, Glenmatic, an online makeup products seller, sold more than 500,000 eyelashes online in North America. Additionally, the advent of digital payment technologies and mobile e-commerce is further boosting the online stores segmental growth.

Nowadays, salons regularly use privately labeled lash extensions to offer premium salon solutions to their clients. This will make specialty stores’ segment generate considerable product revenues. Besides, easy consumers’ accessibility to the premium-based makeup cosmetics at the beauty shops will further support the specialty stores’ segmental growth.
