The Global Alpha Hydroxy Acid Market is projected to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2021 to USD 2.2 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. as per the latest research report by Spherical Insights & Consulting.


Many cosmetic products contain the class of acids known as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are derived from both plants and animals. These include both common anti-aging products like lotions, toners, and serums as well as procedures like chemical peels. AHA-containing products are promoted for their ability to unclog pores, improve skin tone and texture, lessen the visibility of fine lines and surface wrinkles, and generally improve skin health. AHAs can be utilized in cosmetics to alter pH, for instance (the degree of acidity or alkalinity). The FDA has evaluated data indicating that topically applied cosmetics using alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) as components may make skin more sensitive to sunlight while being used. After the usage is stopped, it may increase skin sensitivity to the sun, thus increasing the probability of sunburn. Therefore, the growing awareness of the potential adverse effects, such as skin sensitivity, burning, irritation, and redness, may restrain market expansion. Although the demand for personal care products has increased due to new product developments and technological advancements like social commerce, digital diagnostics, and E-makeup, it is anticipated that the market share for alpha-hydroxy acids will rise throughout the forecast period. Demand for alpha hydroxy acid has increased due to the promising outlook for the cosmetics, fragrance, haircare, and skincare industries.
