Business of Beauty in India

The Indian beauty salon and spa industry has been growing exponentially over the past few years and has emerged as a sector holding tremendous growth potential. Burgeoning at a compounded annual growth rate of 20-23%, the industry is growing twice as fast as the markets in the United States and Europe. Fueled by rising affluence and a growing emphasis on personal appearance and grooming, the beauty industry is estimated to be `41244 crores (2012-13), and expected to increase twofold by 2017-18 to ` 80370 crores. The sector is largely unorganized and is dominated by entrepreneur based businesses and low-end beauty service providers. With the franchising model of operation gaining momentum, the country now has over 5000 franchisees and the sector is fast becoming organized. Today almost 25% of the industry in India is organized and is expected to rise to 30% by 2015. The beauty and wellness phenomenon is not restricted to metros and Tier I cities, the demand in smaller cities is steadily on the rise and with less competition, Tier II and Tier III cities present the highest growth potential.  Leading international players have turned their attention to the Indian market and have set up operations in India seeking to cash in on the exploding demand.
