The global hair dryer market was valued at USD 9.01 billion in 2023 and is projected to be worth USD 9.50 billion in 2024 and reach USD 15.27 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.11% during the forecast period.

Hair dryers have always been an essential equipment in the beauty industry for over a century. As technology continues to advance, new trends and innovations have emerged in this market. Manufacturers in the hair appliance industry have been focusing on launching more energy-efficient and technologically advanced models of hair blowers, which will drive the product demand. Moreover, the demand for professional hair blowers has also been rising owing to the increasing trend of unique hair styles, particularly among the young population, thereby augmenting the market share. Also, in recent times, consumers have been demanding portable and lightweight hair blower equipment as they are flexible and easy to carry while traveling. These factors are expected to drive market growth.

The pandemic disrupted the global supply chains, affecting the production and distribution of various products, including hair blowers. This led to severe raw material shortages and delays in the manufacturing of hair styling appliances, which also included hair dryers. Furthermore, economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic led some consumers to cut back on spending on non-essential products, which affected the sales of hair blowers. Also, inconsistency in raw material supply, closure of beauty retail stores, high transportation costs, and other factors also restricted the hair dryer market growth in 2020.

Hair Dryer Market Trends

Changing Trends in Hair Care and Styling to Speed Up Market Progress

In recent times, consumers have been greatly influenced by popular culture, including musicians, movie stars, athletes, and other social media influencers. They keep a close eye on what people wear in popular movies, television shows, online fashion & music videos, and magazines. Moreover, effortless and low-maintenance hairstyles have become the latest fashion trends. Therefore, consumers are opting for hairstyles that look polished without requiring too much time and effort to create. Therefore, the shift in consumer fashion trends is anticipated to drive the demand for hair blowers.

Smart hair dryers are gaining widespread popularity across countries, notably in North American and European markets. Smart hair blowers feature advanced features that can even monitor the user’s hair temperature. These products have attractive features, including touch screens.

Hair Dryer Market Growth Factors

Growing Establishment of Professional Hair Salons to Propel Market Growth

Rapid industrialization and urbanization have led to an increase in the construction of hair salons in developed and developing countries, such as China, India, Japan, Brazil, the U.K., and others. As people seek high-quality hair care and styling solutions, professional salons provide superior expertise, specialized services, and access to premium hair styling packages and products that might not be available at local salons. Therefore, the ever-evolving hair and beauty trends will drive the need for skilled professionals who can execute these styles effectively, thereby fostering the sales of these dryers. For instance, in July 2020, according to the data published by the Professional Beauty Association, the number of employment-based salon and spa establishments had grown by 17% over the past decade, with revenue up by 48%.

Rapid Inclination of Consumers toward Western Lifestyle to Bolster Market Development

Consumers’ inclination toward western lifestyle is growing in many parts of the world due to several factors, including globalization, media influence, and the perception of modernity. Globalization has led to the spread of western media, culture, and values, making them more accessible and appealing to people dwelling in different regions. Additionally, technological advancements have made it easier for people to connect with and adopt various elements of the western culture. This factor is projected to augment the demand for hair blowers. For instance, according to the Philips Global Beauty Index 2019, nearly 76% of women regularly used hair blowers. Therefore, such trends will increase consumers’ use of hair blowers.


Availability of Counterfeit Hair Styling Products to Decrease Market Revenue

Counterfeit beauty appliances, such as hair blowers from duplicate or fake brands are becoming more prevalent due to the increasing popularity of these products and potential for significant profits for local manufacturers. However, these counterfeit hair styling products often lack proper safety measures, quality control, and warranty support, which, as a result, lowers their demand at the global level. Moreover, fake products also create confusion for customers in selecting the right product, which will affect the demand for these dryers during the forecast period.

Corded Segment to Lead Due to Consistent & Powerful Airflow Offered by Corded Hair Blowers

Based on type, the market is segregated into corded and cordless.

They can be used for extended periods without the need for a recharge, making them suitable for various hair types and styles. Additionally, corded hair dryers have stronger motors, which allows for faster and more efficient drying, thereby fueling the segment’s growth.

The individual segment is expected to dominate the market as hair blowers are more commonly used by household individuals. Moreover, in households, people use styling tools regularly for personal grooming, according to their specific preferences for hairstyles. Moreover, consumers also use these blowers at their convenience as they allow them to dry and style their hair whenever they need to, and at any time. This factor is expected to foster the growth of the segment in the long run.
