The BPC (beauty and personal care) accessories market experienced gains in 2017 (est), driven by strong consumer interest and increased availability of make-up brushes and sponges. Going forward, brands can nurture interest in make-up brushes by positioning themselves as experts and providing women with the tools they need to confidently apply make-up. Concerns over germs can also present opportunity for germ-resistant materials or products that signal to consumers when it’s time to replace a germy BPC accessory. Finally, blender sponges are on-trend and may increase the repertoire of BPC accessories that women own.
