Beauty & Personal Care Segment

Beauty & Personal Care: Top 10 Picks for 2021

Despite having taken some hard hits during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Beauty & Personal Care segment continues to not only thrive but remains one of the fastest-growing consumer markets. Increases are being fueled not only by young consumers entering the market but by the aging population, with both ends of the spectrum equally as focused on taking care of themselves and looking their best. The gradual consumer shift toward premium and luxury cosmetics brands has also boosted the market.

Digital initiatives have been a driving force in the professional beauty industry, with professional skin care marketers leveraging influencers and pivoting to virtual consultations, and salon hair care brands with an existing digital presence adopting affiliate programs. Meanwhile, wellness became an industry standard in 2021 as consumers shifted to at-home beauty regimens and products with natural beauty claims, such as vegan or free-from.  

Finally, acquisitions of indie beauty brands took center stage; they included Glow Recipe, one brand we flagged as the next most-desirable acquisition candidate.  

Through the extensive range of reports and consulting projects we completed in 2021, we provided a steady stream of valuable insights and information from our experts. Here are some of our very best resources:
