The global sun care cosmetics market size is expected to reach USD 16.11 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 8.3% over the forecast period.

The sales of sun care cosmetics are largely driven by brand awareness, shopping frequency, and expenditure capability of different buyers. The adoption of sustainable products made without any chemicals is rising. Also, cruelty-free sun care cosmetics are gaining traction in the market.

Over the past few years, sun care cosmetics have been gaining popularity among people of all ages, particularly the millennial population. Most consumers love sunbaths, however, tanning is a concern and a key factor contributing to the perennial demand for the product.

According to RealSelf Sun Safety Report, in 2019, only 10% of U.S. adults used sunscreen daily and almost half (47%) never wear sunscreen. Women are significantly more likely than men (15% vs. 4%) to wear sunscreen on a daily basis. However, men are significantly more likely than women to always or almost always reapply sunscreen when they wear it, i.e. 34% of men and only 25% of women reapply sunscreen.

The study also mentioned that among Americans who wear sunscreen at least one day a week, 93% apply it to their face. The second most popular product application area is the neck (74%), followed closely by the arms (73%). The top reported reasons for not wearing sunscreen are not being exposed to the sun enough (56%) and having skin that doesn't burn easily (25%).

The top motivations for using sunscreen are preventing skin cancer (74%), preventing sunburn (48%), and preventing the look of aging skin (46%). In addition, the report stated that men are significantly more likely than women to get an annual skin check at 36% and 27%, respectively.

The rising awareness regarding the detrimental effects of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients, such as formaldehyde and toluene, that disrupt the endocrine system has boosted the demand for organic products in the industry. To capitalize on this trend, manufacturers are focusing more on research & development and trying to come up with new products. For instance, the skincare brand Badger makes Organic Sunscreen with Zinc Oxide SPF 30.

The product is also eco-friendly to cater to ingredient-conscious customers. Consumers tend to stay loyal to particular brands owing to their experience and pricing. However, increasing marketing and brand communication activities influence consumers' product adoption. The internet has played a key role in making women more familiar with various grooming routines. A large number of millennials are following social media influencers, bloggers, and vloggers to understand and enhance their grooming, makeup, and fashion skills.
