Intelligent Smart Charge Technology Increases Uptake of Innovative Trimmers

The personal care appliances market is witnessing technological innovations in trimmers. Besides, trimmers product segment of the personal care appliances market is expected to reach the output of ~500 million units by the end of 2027. Hence, manufacturers are exploring opportunities in lithium-ion technology to increase efficacy in the smart charge technology. For instance, in March 2019, leading U.S. grooming company Wahl Clipper, announced the launch of two new trimmers integrated with the lithium-ion technology.

Companies in the market for personal care appliances are boosting their credibility credentials in the global market landscape, since the intelligent smart charge technology saves power.

Technologies similar to lithium-ion are gaining increased popularity in the personal care appliances market, owing to fast charging and prolonged battery life of trimmers. Moreover, companies are introducing electronic travel lock, which ensures the trimmer does not turn on by accident.

Companies Invest in R&D to Develop Less Intrusive Hair Dryers

The personal care appliances market is expected to be valued at ~US$ 111 Bn by 2027. However, the market is anticipated to grow at a considerable growth rate of ~3% during the forecast period.

There is a growing demand for high power and less intrusive hair dryers that cater to the convenience of customers. However, companies have to invest millions of dollars every week to increase their efficacy in R&D for the development of compact engines in hair dryers. This poses as a challenge for prominent and emerging players in the market for personal care appliances, since such companies are restricted with limited budgets. Hence, manufacturers are adopting various strategies and reinvesting part of their profits in R&D to increase production of technologically advanced hair dryers.

In terms of product, the hair dryers segment dominated the personal care appliances market. Hence, manufacturers are focusing on the development of super-fast motors to stay relevant in the highly competitive market landscape.

Leading companies, such as Havells, are roping in celebrities to boost their brand’s credibility credentials through innovative marketing strategies and TV commercials in India.
