Hair Growth OEM in Japan: High Demand High Price

Awareness for hair and scalp care has been increasing continuously around the world and hair growth products were no exception to this.

In this article, we will explain the benefits of developing your own hair growth OEM product, along with details such as MOQ and cost.

Benefits of Hair Growth OEM

Although this section will mainly focus on the Japanese market, it could be useful in terms of giving you a general idea.

Hair growth products are currently standing out as high demand & high price products in the domestic market.

High Demand

As well as cosmetics products in general, the demand for hair growth products has been increasing in recent years.

According to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare’s Pharmaceutical Affairs Industry Production Dynamics Survey, the production value of “hair growth products” in 2019 was about 45.4 billion Japanese Yen (up 35% increase from the previous year).

Although there is demand from women as well, it can be said that the ratio of men is significantly higher due to the fact that many men are suffering from thinning hair.

High Price

If you happen to visit Japanese drug or cosmetics stores, it’s very noticeable that hair growth products are priced much higher than other hair care products such as shampoos.

This does not mean that there are no competitively priced products. However, a vast majority of products are priced anywhere between 3,000 Yen and 15,000 Yen. The price range with most products is 6,000-8,000 Yen.

Hair growth products have higher production costs than other hair care products as well. However, their ability to be marketed with high prices make up for this as they are one of the most profitable ranges of products in the whole cosmetics market.

MOQ of Hair Growth OEM in Japan

In this section, we will be explaining minimum order quantity (MOQ) for hair growth products in Japan.

Judging from our experience, most OEM factories in the country take orders from 100 kg total bulk amount. In case each unit is 200 g, the MOQ of the final outcome would be 500 products.

However, the MOQ for packaging materials, etc. are often 1,000, and those that are available from 500 pcs tend to be very expensive. For this reason, we recommend our clients to start with 1,000 pcs.
