Professional Beauty Services Market Size

Professional Beauty Services Market size was valued at USD 213.9 billion in 2022 and is projected to register a CAGR of over 5% between 2023 and 2032. The rising awareness of beauty, coupled with a growing desire for self-care & grooming, has been a significant factor driving the market growth.

Professional Beauty Services Market

Consumers are placing a premium on personal appearance and overall well-being, thereby fueling the demand for expert services such as spa treatments, skincare, haircare, and makeup application. This trend is fostering innovations & growth in the beauty industry as individuals seek professional expertise to enhance their physical & emotional well-being.

The growing consumer concern about aging and damaged skin is the key factor driving the market progress. As individuals seek effective solutions to address skin issues and maintain a youthful appearance, they increasingly turn to professionals for treatments such as facials, chemical peels, and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. This trend is bolstering the demand for expert skincare services and promoting innovations in the beauty industry as consumers prioritize skin health and rejuvenation.

Rising operating costs pose a significant pitfall for businesses in the European market. Operating costs, encompassing a wide range of expenditures including rent, utilities, product procurement, and wages, can exert substantial pressure on the financial sustainability of beauty service providers. The primary challenge associated with escalating operating costs is the potential reduction in profit margins. As these costs increase, businesses will find it challenging to maintain profitability, especially if they are unable to pass on the added expenses to customers through higher prices.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had profoundly negative impacts on the professional beauty services market. Lockdowns, social distancing measures, and safety concerns led to the temporary closure of salons & spas, resulting in significant revenue losses. The consumer reluctance to visit such establishments due to health & safety fears further hampered industry recovery. Supply chain disruptions also affected product availability. Despite the gradual reopening, the industry continues to grapple with reduced demand and operational challenges, thereby hindering its growth.

Professional Beauty Services Market Trends

The introduction of fully autonomous robots for manicure services is estimated to propel the market demand. For instance, in March 2023, XWELL, Inc., a leading provider of health & wellness solutions for individuals with active lifestyles, entered a collaborative initiative with Clockwork, a company specializing in beauty industry robotics, to launch the latter’s state-of-the-art, fully autonomous, and AI-driven express manicure service at the XpresSpa outlet situated within the John F. Kennedy International Hair Careport in New York City. As such innovations become more widespread, they will attract new clientele and rejuvenate the interest in professional beauty services, ultimately driving market growth.
