Female is Expected to Hold Largest Share Over the forecast period

About one-third of women experience hair loss (alopecia) at some time in their lives. Among postmenopausal women, as many as two-thirds suffer hair thinning or bald spots. Hair loss in women often has a greater impact than hair loss does on men, because it's less socially acceptable for them. 

Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in women. Alopecia can severely affect a woman's emotional well-being and quality of life. Although Alopecia is more common in male than female, the female has the largest share in the market owing to the factors such as high awareness levels coupled with increased frequency of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) causing a hormonal imbalance that leads to androgenetic alopecia.
