Findings from our recently published U.S. volume for our Professional Skin Care Global Series reveal several reasons behind this solid growth, and some of the noteworthy developments are discussed below.
- Two key channels continue to dominate

Globally, medical care providers tend to be the channel of choice among consumers seeking help with their skin care problems, ranging from fine lines and wrinkles, to brown spots, acne, and sagging skin. The channel includes dermatologists and plastic surgeons that offer an array of both surgical and non-surgical procedures and skin care treatments that attracts consumers. In 2016, Americans spend $6.4 billion on non-surgical procedures, up 18.5% from $5.4 billion in 2015, according to the American Society for Plastic Surgery.
Medical care providers is the key channel driving growth in the skin care sector across several markets, including China, Europe, and the United States, according to Kline’s upcoming Professional Skin Care Global Series report. The channel records strong growth of 28% in China, 10% in Europe, and continues to record mid single-digit growth in South Korea and the United States.Continue reading
Consumers around the world still have a strong appetite for devices that will help perfect the health and appearance of their skin.

South Korea and China are hotbeds of opportunity, where the inception of many of these products occurs. Device sales growth in these markets range from 10-15% each, well above the global average of 5%.Continue reading
The professional skin care market in Europe enjoys another year of dynamic growth, according to Kline’s soon-to-be-published Professional Skin Care Global Series report. Key countries for the region, such as France, the United Kingdom, and Germany, account for over 50% of the total European sales in 2017. The region is dominated by local companies, such as Clarins, Babor, and Dermalogica, respectively.
Beauty institutes and spas continue to be the largest channel, accounting for the majority of the market share. However, growth through this channel is slowing down due to the growing popularity of the retail channel, especially the Internet, as more consumers are making replenishment purchases through the Internet to refill their product supply rather than visiting aestheticians. Some large brands, such as Dermalogica, have also increased their focus on the retail channel in 2016 and 2017. Continue reading
