Footcare - US - May 2018

"Footcare industry sales are projected to dip. The industry is slowly stabilizing after a sharp sales increase in 2015 was followed immediately by steep declines, a result of a foot smoothing device fad. Foot pain and aesthetic issues are fairly common, driving footcare product usage. Consumers prioritize functionality over brand within the category, and most often discover footcare products by browsing in-store. The majority of adults consider foot appearance and health to be important, but perceptions of footcare specific products as unnecessary are common.

- Jana Vyleta, Health & Personal Care Analyst
