Most people spent the stimulus payments on purchasing goods of personal necessity.

Especially, a higher portion of African Americans (83%), compared to 65% of White Americans, spent the COVID-19 stimulus checks to purchase necessities rather than paying off debts or adding into savings.

Will the Beauty Supply Boom Continue in Coming Year?

Both favorable and unfavorable factors exist. Nonetheless, most of beauty supply insiders expect the 2012 beauty supply market would not perform poorly citing the favorable factors such as the quick rebound of global economy and strong economic stimulus packages.

<Favorable Factors>
COVID-19 Vaccines and Treatment Options
Tax return
The second stimulus check
V-shaped recovery of global economy

<Unfavorable Factors>
Reoccurrence COVID-19 Spread
High unemployment rate among African Americans
Global trade wars continue.
Business and household debt increase.


the above factors are of short-term impact only, and in a long run, they can induce a bubble in the equity market and deteriorating fiscal health, among other side-effects, according to many economy analysts.
While the beauty supply industry thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we should prepare ourselves to make necessary changes for a sustainable growth in a long run.
There is a saying, “You should prepare for the worst in a peaceful time.” In 2021, we will need the wisdom of preparing for an economic downturn at a flourishing time.
