Growth Estimates and Latest Trends of Beauty and Wellness Sector in India

According to CSO, growth in consumption expenditure dropped to 4 percent in FY2013 from 8 percent in FY2012, but expenditure on wellness products and services remains steady, riding on increasing share of discretionary spending. Customers are willing to pay a premium for a beauty and wellness ?experience?. Spending on beauty and wellness is no longer considered a luxury. Customers are more aware of holistic approaches to wellbeing and setting aside quality time towards these activities. There is an increased preference for organic options.

Rising income, increasing awareness among consumers in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities and low rental/manpower costs are some drivers for expansion into hitherto untapped regions. For a number of organized beauty and wellness players, over 50 percent of their new store additions during FY 2013 have been beyond Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. As revenues in the sector continue to grow, the need for skilled manpower like Dresser, Stage and Studio would also continue to grow at an equal pace.
