According to a KPMG report, the size of India’s beauty and wellness market is expected to be around Rs. 80,370 crores by 2017-2018. This includes the spa businesses, beauty products and salon industry. The salon industry already accounts for 31% share of the total beauty and wellness market. The beauty and wellness industry in India is growing at a CAGR of 18.6 % which is almost twice as that of US or European market.
Most of the training courses offered by unorganized small time players are not recognized by the industry and the candidates do not receive a premium for completion of these courses. Training offered by unorganized players who are not from the industry lack practical exposure and depth in curriculum and content. Scope for organized players in this segment is immense as there are very few professional academies currently operating in this space while most others do not even have a standardized curriculum or quality trainers.
According to report by KPMG & National Skill Development Corporation, the skill requirement in beauty & wellness sector is going to almost double in the next 4 years.

Given the current landscape in the beauty and wellness sector and relative dearth of established and organised training in this sector, there is immense potential for other players in the market.

Since the largest requirement for skilled labour is in the beauty & salon segment, the requirement for skilled labour is going to double in the next 4 years.
