Market Insights and Analyst View:

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure used to move hair and hair follicles from an individual’s body called a donor site to a bald location on the body. The removed hair from one part of the body is implanted into tiny holes in the scalp. This procedure is ideally performed with the help of a scalpel or a punch graft instrument. With hair transplant help, an individual can obtain the desired looks and confidence.  The target market for hair transplants includes men suffering from baldness, women suffering from thinning hair and hair fall, and victims of scalp or burn injuries.

The rise in surgical hair restoration procedures and the growing number of hair transplant procedures among men are bolstering the growth of the hair transplant market. Also, hair clinics across the globe are adopting several hair transplant marketing strategies, which is a key factor propelling the market's growth. In addition, the hair transplant market trends will likely positively impact the market's growth in the coming years.

Market Insights and Analyst View:

Growth Drivers and Challenges:

Hair loss is a sensitive issue among both young men and women worldwide. Factors such as rising work pressure, stress, improper eating habits, heredity, and exposure to chemicals cause hair fall and receding hairline. Growing media and celebrity influence, societal pressure, and growing urbanization are some factors encouraging individuals to opt for hair transplants to enhance their physical appearance.

Hair transplant procedures have been opted by men on a large scale in the past few years. Since men are more prone to baldness, they hold the maximum share as users of hair transplant procedures. According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, the percentage of people undergoing hair loss treatment increased by 13% from 2016 to 2019. Moreover, in 2019, 681,964 people underwent surgical hair treatment procedures (a 14% increase from 2016), and 1,401,589 patients underwent non-surgical hair loss treatment (a 13% increase from 2016). However, female patients have also increased considerably in recent years. Thus growing importance of physical appearance and awareness is expected to boost the hair transplant market in the coming years.

However, the increasing number of black market hair transplant clinics that perform dangerous and poor hair transplants will likely hinder market growth. Some of the complications caused by these hair transplant black market clinics are larger scars, poor hair growth, infections, etc.

During the pandemic, health services in the European region were highly prioritized to serve patients affected by COVID-19. The routine health care services have remained suspended. Therefore, it has affected the region's aesthetic services and dependable revenue generation. Various aesthetic companies closed their operations in the region. The pandemic has affected aesthetic service adversely; a Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance Survey conducted in March 2020 stated that ~99% of doctors' practice had been impacted during the pandemic.
