Rising Preference for Piroctone Olamine over Zinc Pyrithione and Ketoconazole to Fuel Growth of the Piroctone Olamine Market

Piroctone olamine is becoming more widely used due to its anti-fungal properties. When combined with other ingredients in shampoos, piroctone olamine significantly decreased dandruff while also nourishing the hair. Malassezia globosa is controlled by the anti-fungal effects of piroctone olamine. Piroctone olamine also aids in the smoothing, and silkening the hair, as well as the prevention of hair loss and the stimulation of hair growth. Dandruff prevalence declined with age: 21.6 % in the 15–24-year-old group, 19.7 % in the 25–34 year group, 17.4 % in the 35–49 year group, 14.3 % in the 50–64 year group, and 11.7 % in the 65+ year group. These attributes will drive the piroctone olamine market forward.

Piroctone olamine has been shown to be superior to ketoconazole and zinc pyrithione in multiple controlled clinical trials undertaken by various researchers hence, driving the global piroctone olamine market’s growth. For instance, a study conducted by National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) analysed these three chemicals and found that using piroctone olamine reduces hair loss by 16.5%, improves hair shaft diameter by 7.9%, and dramatically reduces sebum production in the scalp. Another SpecKare study examined two shampoo types: one with piroctone olamine (0.75 %) combined with salicylic acid (2 %), and the other with zinc pyrithione (1 %) as the active ingredient. While ZPT (Zinc Pyrithione) decreased dandruff by 68.6%, the active component piroctone olamine reduced dandruff by 81.7 %. Moreover, the important elements driving demand for piroctone olamine are increased production and demand for cosmetic items, primarily due to cultural change, increased female employment, growing youth population, and the influence of western society.

Demand for Piroctone Olamine Soars in Shampoo and Hair Care Products Category

The shampoo and hair care products sector are expected to dominate the global piroctone olamine market over the forecast period. With the largest market share, the shampoo and hair care products segment lead the piroctone olamine market. The fungus Malassezia globosa's cell membrane is penetrated by piroctone olamine, which disrupts their energy metabolism and oxygen intake. This eliminates the fungi and clears the infection, reducing dandruff, which causes hair loss and thinning in the first place. The molecule is frequently compared to ketoconazole, a common anti-dandruff shampoo ingredient. Piroctone olamine, on the other hand, is more effective against dandruff and fungal infections.

Rising Foreign Direct Investments in Asia Pacific to Drive Market Growth

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global piroctone olamine market over the forecast period. The APAC region offers numerous opportunities for piroctone olamine providers to expand. The manufacturing industry is rapidly adopting new technologies and processes. Manufacturing spending in the region has increased significantly in recent years and is expected to continue at a rapid pace. The significant growth in the manufacturing sector creates a demand for advanced solutions, which drives the piroctone olamine market. Rising foreign direct investments also contribute to regional economic growth.

Asia Pacific region's major markets for piroctone olamine include India, Japan, and China. Rising production and demand for cosmetic products, primarily due to cultural change, increased female employment, a growing youth population, and the influence of Western culture, are the primary factors driving demand for piroctone olamine in Asian countries. The growth of personal industries drives the demand for improved personal care products such as shampoos, moisturisers, soaps, and others. Furthermore, rising personal hygiene concerns, as well as the growing influence of social media and other promotional media, have increased consumer awareness of wellness and hygiene products. This has significantly fuelled growth in the personal care industry. For instance, the anti-dandruff loss shampoo market in China is expected to reach 1.54 billion yuan by 2020, up from 1.32 billion yuan the previous year. By 2021, the market is expected to reach 1.61 billion yuan.

The piroctone olamine market in Europe has been expanding due to the region's high demand for skin care, cosmetics, and hair care products. According to Cosmetics Europe, the European trade association for the cosmetics and personal care industry, France was a global leader in cosmetics exports. Similarly, according to European Commission estimates, the value of shampoo production in 2020 will be around 2.07 billion euros. The production value has fluctuated during the period under consideration.

Global Piroctone Olamine Market: Competitive Landscape

In January 2021, St Botanica introduced the "Go Range" in the hair care segment, which included shampoos and conditioners for all hair types, including GO Curls Shampoo, GO Purple Shampoo, and GO Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. The anti-dandruff shampoo in this line is said to be suitable for flaky scalps because it contains Ichthyol Pale, which helps to protect the upper layer of the scalp, keeping it clean and dandruff-free. On the other hand, in June 2019, Alliance Pharma PLC purchased Nizoral, an anti-dandruff shampoo brand from Janssen Pharmaceutica NV. By acquiring this product, the company gained marketing rights for Nizoral, which has increased product distribution and helped the company generate more earnings. This initiative also increased the company's dandruff treatment product portfolio.

A few of the players in the piroctone olamine market include Spec Chem Industry Inc, Starchem Enterprises Limited, Yantai Aurora Chemical Co., LTD., Zhonglan Industry Co.,Ltd, Clariant, KOLON LIFE SCIENCE, Shandong Chuangying Chemical Co., Ltd, Merck KGaA, JSN Chemicals LTD, and Junwee Chemical Co.,Ltd.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
