The Vanity Trade 2024: All About Me!

According to Wikipedia,

“Self-help or self-improvement is a self-directed improvement of oneself—economically, physically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis.”

In the Outlook 2024, I quote Raymond Lo yet again,

“The Dragon is considered a ‘Star of Arts.’ The industries that will perform better in the Year of the Dragon will be related to the Metal and Wood elements. Metal industries are beauty and skin care; wood industries are media, fashion….”

This got me thinking about the consumer and the habits of 2023 and how they could continue or change in 2024.

With disposable income still quite high, consumers who spent the last half of 2023 in YOLO or revenge spending go into vanity mode in 2024.

Fashion, beauty, skincare, elective surgeries, self-help, diet drugs, and maybe dating stocks do well.

Think of it as a switch from all about my family and fun for them to all about me and feeling good about myself!
