Self-tanning Products Market

Demand for Safe, Healthy, and Natural Self-tanning Products on Rise

The self-tanning products market has witnessed a steady growth in the past decade. Although the global sales of self-tanning products were sluggish in the initial phases due to uncertainty among consumers regarding ingredients, safety, and negative effects of using self-tanning products. The demand for self-tanning products has witnessed consistent growth in the past few years, owing to a range of factors. One of the major factors expected to drive the sales of self-tanning products is the growing evidence and mounting concerns pertaining to the harmful effects of sun tanning on the skin.

The wellness industry is gradually adapting to evolving consumer choices and increasingly turning to natural ingredients to develop self-tanning products. At present, market players are expected to focus on the production of products that offer a natural tan to increase their brand credibility and value. In addition, several leading players in the global self-tanning products market are likely to expand their product portfolio to increase their presence in the market. While regulatory bodies around the world have laid down a solid framework pertaining to the production and marketing of self-tanning products, brands are expected to work toward gaining approval for their products.

At the back of these factors, along with the evolving consumer and regulatory landscape, the global self-tanning products market is expected to cross US$ 2.3 Bn mark by the end of 2030.

Consumers Leaning Toward UV-free Tan Alternatives amid Reports of Skin Cancer

Over the past few years, consumer trends indicate a tectonic shift away from natural tanning, especially in regions wherein ozone depletion is a major concern. Consumer awareness pertaining to the harmful effects of the sun in certain regions and the growing number of skin cancer cases in regions with high ozone depletion, including Australia, are some of the key factors that have generated considerable interest in self-tanning products. Consumer trends in multiple regions suggest a growing demand for UV-free tan products– a factor that is expected to contribute to the growth of the self-tanning products market in the upcoming years. The growing desire to attain a fashionable and glowing tan, especially in young adults is a major trend that is anticipated to provide boost to the sales of self-tanning products during the assessment period.

The demand for self-tanning products is on the rise, particularly in developed regions, including North America and Europe. Some of the most common self-tanning products that are in demand include body tanner, skin tanner, and face tanner.

Demand for Self-tanning Products to Decline during COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a strong impact on the growth of the self-tanning products market especially in 2024. Self-tanning products are not classified as essential products by governments in several nations due to which, the production as well as its demand have taken a major hit. Services in the tanning salon industry are expected to witness a massive setback due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and declining demand. However, as governments are expected to increase spending and gradually allow businesses to reopen post a brief period of lockdown, the market is expected to show signs of improvement in the upcoming months. As spas, salons, and other players in the beauty industry are anticipated to gradually resume services, the demand for self-tanning products is expected to grow toward the last quarter of 2024.

Increasing Awareness about UV Radiation across the Globe: Key Driver of Global Market

  • Traditional methods of tanning include exposure of skin to UV radiation from the sun or from artificial sources such as tanning beds, lamps, etc. Ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun produce UV radiations. Ultraviolet rays are not visible through naked eyes due to their shorter wavelength; however, they cause various skin problems. UVB rays are the rays that burn the superficial layer of the skin. These usually cause darkening or redness of the skin. UVA are the rays that penetrate a bit deeper into the dermis, which is the thickest layer of skin and damages the skin that contains blood capillaries, nerve endings, sweat glands, and hair follicles. Suppression of the immune system, skin cancer, wrinkles, and aging are some of the conditions that happen due to skin exposure to direct sun.
  • Various promotional activities and awareness campaigns undertaken by governments and manufacturing companies have resulted in increasing awareness among consumers. Hence, people are concerned about their skin health and looking for alternative options for a tan without damaging the skin. This is expected to generate demand for various types of self-tanning products during the forecast period. As more consumers during the forecast period are expected to be well educated and informed about skin health, demand for self-tanning products is likely to rise.  Thus, the market for self-tanning products is expected to expand during the forecast period.
