The hair removal wax market can be segmented based on type, application, end-user, and distribution channel. Based on type, the market can be categorized into soft wax and hard wax. The soft wax segment accounted for a prominent market share in 2017, owing to the ability of soft wax to adhere to skin more than hard wax and exfoliating skin. Soft wax is able to hold fine hair perfectly and works better on large parts of the body. Soft wax is generally cheaper than hard wax and less painful for most people, and businesses are making more money using it. In terms of application, the commercial segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of over 9.0% to reach over US$ 14,000 Mn in the near future. The segment is expected to be followed by the individual segment. More and more consumers prefer to visit beauty salons or spas for waxing as they are less messy and provide specific procedures of waxing, such as bikini wax, Brazilian wax, and Hollywood wax. There are even waxing procedures available that cater specifically to men. In terms of end-user, the market is largely dominated by the women segment, which is expected to expand at a faster pace owing to the changing beauty trends among women and increasing consumer awareness about personal grooming. While more than 90% of today’s wax users are women, the number of men waxing their chests, backs, ears, nose, and other areas is also increasing steadily. Based on distribution channel, the market is currently dominated by the offline channel. However, in the near future, online sales are anticipated to rise at a fast pace owing to technological advancements and preference of brands for selling products online as it makes it easier for them to penetrate different markets.
