Blue Light Protection Ingredients Market

Demand for blue light protection ingredients remained subdued for a long time, owing to low awareness and scant research. However, in the last five years, growing body of evidence has linked excessive smartphone usage to a number of health issues. According to a new research report published by Harvard University in July, 2020, blue light suppresses melatonin twice as long as the green light along causing skin damage. As the proliferation of electronics with screens and energy-efficient lighting is increasing the exposure to blue wavelengths, consumers are looking at appropriate solutions.

Key Takeaways

  • Global blue light protection ingredient sales to grow at 8.3% CAGR through 2030
  • Solid/semi-solid ingredient demand higher than liquid ingredients
  • Demand for organic variant increased to 36% of total consumption in 2020
  • Germany, UK, France, Italy, and US among epicenters of global demand

 “The increase in usage of electronic gadgets starting from smart phones to laptops is resulting in higher exposure of our skin to the blue lights emitted from these devices. For instance, according to the National Statistics of the United States, ~88% of people in the U.S use PC/laptop, while ~75% people use smartphones and this rate is expected to rise further through 2030. This increasing adoption of electronic gadgets is anticipated to further expand the global blue-light protection ingredients market in the near future,” says an FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in decline in growth of the key end-use industries of the market such as cosmetics, skincare, and others. The outbreak of the pandemic has shifted the focus of the consumers towards more emergency services including health, wellness, and others.

Furthermore, the manufacturing units have come across various hurdles such as scarcity of raw materials, unavailability of enough manpower, and others. As most of the manufacturing hubs were closed for long during the lock down, the growth of the market has declined substantially earlier this year.

However, with the commencement of vaccination and adoption of the ‘new-normal’, the market is expected to get back on track and expand further in the coming years.
