Sun Care Around the World


 September 28, 2018

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the incidence of both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers has been increasing over the past decades. As risks increase, consumers’ interest in protecting their skin from the harmful effects of UV rays is also increasing. As such, sun care around the world has become a trending topic among brands and it doesn’t look like it will be fading any time soon.

Demands for Sun Care Around the World

Sun Care around the worldWHO states that a 10 percent decrease in ozone levels may result in an additional 300,000 non-melanoma and 4,500 melanoma skin cancer cases. Because of this, the global incidence of melanoma continues to increase: “Currently, between 2 and 3 million non-melanoma skin cancers and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur globally each year.”

These staggering statistics make it clear why brands must focus on consumer needs and demands in this category. The market for sun care around the world is booming, which is good news for both consumers and brands. In fact, the global sun care market is expected to be worth $24.91 billion USD by 2024 (it was $15.83 billion in 2015). According to a study by Transparency Market Research, North America will be at the forefront of the global arena but emerging economies in Latin America and Asia Pacific are anticipated to present profitable opportunities for brands in the sun care market as awareness levels continue to direct purchasing patterns.

While protection is vital, consumers are also looking for multifunctional sun care products, organic, sustainable ingredients and private label brands.

This includes sun care in the form of creams, gel, lotion, powder, liquid, wipes, spray and colored.
