Gender roles have undergone a paradigm shift since the past several decades. As generations progress, existing notions about personal care and hygiene are transforming simultaneously.

In the present era of environmental changes and elevated pollution levels, intimate hygiene is a top priority of all consumers, irrespective of one’s gender. Lack of proper hygiene is a major cause of several skin ailments and fungal or other pathogenic infections. To avoid this, spending on intimate hygiene has increased.

Anticipated Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has leveraged the usage of personal hygiene products. This is in the wake of maintaining a clean, safe and sterile environment in order to contain the spread of the deadly pathogens. Basic hygienic practices such as hand washing and sanitizing and frequent bathing to remove any pathogens attached to the body have become commonplace.

This new awareness has also uplifted the demand for specific personal care products. Demand for products such as intimate wash for skin care, creams and moisturizers have registered an uptick throughout the duration of the pandemic. However, supply chain disruptions have generated shortfalls in the demand-supply equations as manufacturing units have been operating at reduced capacities, resulting in restricted output.

However, with several countries easing lockdown restrictions, factories are reverting to their normal capacity, bridging the demand-supply gap. Moreover, digital marketing has taken precedence over traditional marketing, allowing vendors to reach a wider customer base. Online shopping platforms such as Amazon and eBay have provided a hot bed for the sales of men’s intimate care products.

Additionally, growing e-commerce platforms will provide a greater level of comfort while purchasing these products. Thus, while the short-run projections may stunt growth, the overall forecast for the men’s intimate care products market is slated to remain positive in the future.
