the piercing market
United Kingdom


1.1 Definition and presentation

Piercing is the art of body transformation through jewellry. Common areas to pierce include the ear, nipples, and facial piercings.

The global market is growing at a modest and stable pace in parallel to higher disposable income; higher income enables individuals to purchase piercings. This is the key component for revenue growth since the supply portfolio has remained more or less the same since the art of piercing begun.

The UK market has been growing at a steady but positive pace. Higher disposable income and more certified clinics are key drivers for this. Moreover, the industry experiences low revenue volatility.

In the UK, the piercing industry is highly fragmented, and players often consists of small independent service providers. Nevertheless, companies include the likes of Killer Ink and Barber of Sheffield.

Market trends in the UK piercing industry include increased M&A activity which facilitates distribution and will help fuel growth. [PJ]
