A major emerging trend in the Global Sun Care Product market is the growing popularity of multifunctional benefits present in a single product. These days, consumers prefer products such as BB creams with SPF as well as added benefits that provide lighter textures, which is hampering the sales of sun care products. BB creams act as a moisturizer, serum, foundation, and sunblock to give consumers a youthful, bright, and even skin tone.

The demand for such multifunctional products is higher in North America and Western European countries. However, these products may also positively influence the market as the vendors are striving to launch sun care products with added skin care benefits. Such convergence between skin care and sun care products will continue during the forecast period making it necessary for vendors to carefully market their products.

According to the report, the Global Sun Care Product market is driven by several factors, of which increased global warming and exposure to harmful UV radiation is one of the major drivers.
