The growth of the world selenium sulfide market has been predicted to ride on the swelling demand for specialized hair care offerings, particularly in emerging countries. As per a TMR analyst, anti-dandruff and hydrating shampoos have been gaining a massive demand from consumers in China, India, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Argentina, Mexico, and Brazil. Improving disposable income in these economies has been forecast to be a driving factor pushing the demand for a variety of personal care and grooming products.

The author of the report has stated that the world selenium sulfide market could gain from the expanding cosmetics and personal care industry as a result of the surge in income of consumers that is impacting their lifestyle.

Carcinogenic Properties Reduce Demand as Governments Enforce Limitations

Analysts envisage carcinogenic properties of selenium sulfide to be one of the significant growth deterrents of the global market. Several governmental bodies have imposed restrictions on the usage of selenium sulfide in cosmetics and personal care products. However, developing economies such as Asia Pacific could offer rewarding prospects on the back of the rising usage of veterinary medicines and magnifying awareness about veterinary care. Change in buying preferences of consumers owing to their improved lifestyle and income could be another factor bringing back the demand for selenium sulfide.

The information presented in this review is based on a TMR report, titled “Selenium Sulfide Market (Product - Selenium Sulfide 99.00% and Selenium Sulfide 99.99%; Application - Personal Care (Shampoos and Lotions) and Veterinary Medicine (Eczema and Dermatomycoses)) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016 - 2024.
