Hair & Nail Salons in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


New York, NY (PRWEB) February 16, 2015

The Hair and Nail Salons industry is projected to expand over the five years to 2015 thanks to rising consumer spending on discretionary personal care products and services. During the period, revenue is expected to increase slowly. This industry is composed of salons that offer haircuts, facials, hair modification treatments (e.g. perms and straightening procedures), massages, deluxe spa manicures and pedicures. Improved disposable income, declining unemployment and an increasing number of new products and services have favorably impacted industry revenue, which is expected to grow slightly over 2015.

In the past five years, companies have continued to enter the industry, attracted to its stable consumer base and low barriers to entry. Over the five years to 2015, the number of industry operators is anticipated to increase marginally. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Britanny Carter, Operator growth has been spurred by a rising amount of nonemployers and nail salons entering the industry. This industry is also highly fragmented, with the top four companies controlling less than 10.0% of the market share. In fact, based on census data, IBISWorld estimates the vast majority of industry operators do not have employees. In the aftermath of the recession, average industry profit margins have rebounded considerably, growing due to rising service prices and improved spending on high-margin merchandise and services.

The Hair and Nail Salons industry is highly fragmented; operators are spread across many locations to be close to key consumer markets in high-traffic locations. In addition, barriers to entry are extremely low for the industry, further contributing to a high level of fragmentation. This trend makes it difficult for one company to serve a large portion of the entire market. In fact, the industry is dominated by non-employers which make up the vast majority companies in the industry. This includes hair stylists and nail technicians that are sole proprietors and rent their booths from hair and nail salons. Nonemployers collectively generate just over half of the industry’s revenue. The market leader, Regis Corporation, controls a very small percentage of the market.

Industry growth is expected to accelerate over the five years to 2020 thanks to improving disposable income, with revenue rising slightly. Declining unemployment during the next five years is expected to drive per capita disposable income growth and boost demand for price-premium services offered by this industry, says Carter. Moreover, equipped with larger budgets, consumers will likely favor professional salon products and services over less costly alternatives sold at drugstores. Environmental concerns are expected to become more prevalent during the next five years, which will lead to salons offering a wider array of eco-friendly products that appeal to emerging consumer preferences. More specifically, toxic-free products will prove beneficial to industry revenue, as well as staff and patrons.

Boutique Hotels in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2015

Boutique hotels that focused on providing luxury accommodations with an emphasis on design, individualization and quality of service have performed strongly over the past five years. The Boutique Hotels industry has outperformed the broader Hotels and Motels industry during the period, growing at an average annual rate of 5.6% over the five years to 2015, thanks to consumers increasingly demanding accommodations with unique offerings. As consumers have increased their spending, domestic and international travel rates have increased, according to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Andrew Alvarez. Bolstered travel rates have facilitated impressive industry growth. The industry is expected to perform strongly in 2015, as more boutique hotels are slated to open in large cities, such as New York, San Francisco and Chicago. Industry revenue is projected to increase 4.6% in 2015, making the industry worth $ 6.3 billion.

Over the last couple of decades, travelers have grown increasingly wary of staying in cookie-cutter hotels geared toward a mass audience. Travelers have begun migrating toward new and more intimate types of hotels, especially in urban locations. These hotels, which typically have between 10 and 100 rooms, are geared toward a target market of well-to-do 20 to 55 year olds and offer unique design themes and architecture. Industry boutiques often center their hotel on a brand-name chef’s restaurant, as well as a trendy bar or lounge, which provides boutique hotels with both a sizeable revenue stream and instant brand recognition, says Alvarez. The large majority of boutique hotels are independent operators, but chains such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide and the Wyndham Hotel Group are playing an increasingly large role in the industry because of the sizeable profit margins that boutique hotels offer.

Over the next five years, IBISWorld forecasts that the industry will expand rapidly as demand for the boutique concept increases substantially. Over the five years to 2020, revenue is projected to increase. Merger and acquisition activity is set to continue, as large chains continue to increase their market share by purchasing small boutique chains or develop their own boutique brands.
