The Asia-Pacific razor blade market is the most attractive region for the players operating in the market. It is home to around 60% of the global population. The growing youth population is a key factor propelling the Asia-Pacific razor blade market. According to United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the overall fertility rate of Asia-Pacific is 2.1 births per woman and some nations are witnessing youth bulge. This presents lucrative growth opportunities to the razor blade manufacturers. Moreover, the growing awareness among the population regarding personal hygiene and increasing emphasis on grooming ate further driving the razor blade market. Therefore, the growing population in the emerging markets will act as a catalyst to the razor blade market in the foreseeable future.

Moreover, there are various substitutes of safety razors that are gaining immense traction in the market. The most popular are disposable razors, trimmers, epilators, and electric razors. The giant market players, such as Gillette, BIC, and Edgewell, are involved in aggressive marketing of these substitute products. Disposable razors, trimmers, and electric razors are gaining significant popularity among the global population. The use of trimmers and electric razors eliminates the use of razor blades, and thus significantly hampers the growth of the razor blade market. Moreover, famous brands, such as Gillette and BIC, are innovating and coming up with specially designed razors for removing hair from different body parts for men and women. Furthermore, different brands are manufacturing products to cater to men and women. For example, Gillette serves the men segment while Venus serves only the women segment. These factors are increasing the demand for alternatives of safety razor and razor blades.
