Hair Dryers under Scrutiny for Spreading Coronavirus
There is a myth surrounding the use of hair dryers to kill coronavirus (COVID-19) pathogens. It is being highly argued whether hair dryers kill the COVID-19 virus. Popular news outlets reveal that hair dryers are not completely effective in killing the COVID-19 pathogens, and can result in thermal burns and dryness of the face due to the exposure to heat of hair dryers. On the other hand, hair dryers are under scrutiny for spreading the novel coronavirus in salon and clinical settings. Hence, companies in the hair dryer market should educate salon employees and patrons alike about various preventive measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The spread of COVID-19 is high, if a sick individual enters the salon or clinical premises and can be further aggravated with the use of hair dryers. Hair dryers have the potential to spread the virus but with preventive measures such as thermal scanning of individuals, employees can significantly contain the spread of the virus. This could affect the growth of the hair dryer market.

Professional-grade Hair Dryers Provide Fast Hair Drying without Extreme Heat
Breakthrough innovations in hair dryers are generating value-grab opportunities for manufacturers. Likewise, the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer has been a revelation in the hair industry, as British innovator James Dyson forayed into the beauty sector for the first time. However, companies in the hair dryer market find that many of their inventions do not fit the regular salon environments. Hence, companies are making minor tweaks in the technology of hair dryers to make them commercially viable in salon environments. They are investing in research spending to launch professional versions of hair dryers.
The hair dryer market is expected to reach US$ 12.4 Bn by 2030, as manufacturers are integrating robust filters and professional concentrate nozzles in hair dryers for better coverage and a more focused air flow. Fast hair drying without extreme heat has become an important focus point for manufacturers.
Lithium–Silicone Batteries Leverage Technology in Cordless Hair Dryers
Wireless and portable hair dryers are meeting convenience needs of on-the-go individuals. Cordless and rechargeable AER dryers are posing stiff competition to companies such as Philips in the wireless hair dryers segment. Thus, research spending is playing a key role in improving the sensor technology of wireless hair dryers. Companies in the hair dryer market are using lithium–silicone batteries to innovate in portable dryers. Wireless products have been an upgrade in the hair dryer domain since smart sensors analyze air quality and humidity around to automatically modify heat settings.
Moreover, companies in the hair dryer market are boosting their production activities to develop wireless products with detachable cords that come handy when batteries are out of power. As such, the bulky size of wireless hair dryers due to their batteries tend to outweigh the advantages of the same.
Affordability Influences Buyers’ Decision for Super Hair Dryer Products
The concept of super hair dryers is encouraging manufacturers to constantly innovate in products. Likewise, the Airshot from Cloud Nine has vitamins infused to its ceramic heating components that nourish the hair. The demand for quick hair drying is fueling innovations in smart hair dryers. Convenient heating options in hair dryers are being highly preferred by customers to quickly and effectively dry the hair. On the other hand, companies in the hair dryer market are innovating in compact designs for products.
Manufacturers in the hair dryer market are aiming to develop products that fall in the range of US$ 50 – US$ 100 to meet affordability of customers, whilst not compromising on the output of the product.
Companies in the hair dryer market should educate salons and clinicians about thermal scanning and rescheduling of appointments, if they find an individual is potentially sick with COVID-19 symptoms. Opting for cheap alternatives can be potentially risky but not for BaByliss 2100 Salon Light, which is a cheap and cheerful dryer that works efficiently at a pocket-friendly price. However, it is challenging for emerging market players to strike the right balance between heat temperatures and lithium batteries, while developing wireless hair dryers. Hence, companies should use lithium–silicone batteries that are placed far from the heating coil to keep temperatures under control. Compact hair dryers are highly preferred by customers.
