Growth in ageing population, improving economic conditions, increasing awareness regarding personal grooming, inclination towards automation, and growing online sales are factors that drive the market growth.

The hair care appliances segment accounted for over two-fifths of the global personal care electrical appliances market in 2015, owing to the influence of western lifestyle on the population of developing and untapped regions. The hair straightener sub-segment was the leading revenue contributor to the global hair care appliances market in 2014, accounting for more than 43% share, and is further expected to dominate the market throughout the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2016 to 2022. The hair stylers segment is the fastest growing market, registering a CAGR of 10.0% from 2016 to 2022.

Trimmer was the leading revenue contributor to the global hair removal appliances segment owing to its established market status and historical trend of trimmed beard. Epilators and shavers together contributed around 47% share in 2014 and would grow at a CAGR of 10.2% and 10.8% respectively during the forecast period. Epilators have a different mode of action as that of shavers. They do not remove the hair from surface, rather pluck off hair strands from their roots. This gives a permanent solution as compared to shaving. Therefore, men use shavers for facial hair, whereas women prefer epilators. The availability of substitute products, such as hair removal creams, and others act as replacements for epilators; thereby, limiting their growth. Consumers shift from creams and other hair removal methods to epilators is expected to be gradual in untapped markets of the Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions.
