On the other hand, growing a beard has become extremely fashionable, especially among young people. In order to maintain their beard, these people are increasingly employing high-quality razors and trimmers.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to factory closures imposed by lockdown guidelines established during the COVID-19 pandemic, the production of razors was majorly impacted. Additionally, the supply chain disruption caused a shortage of raw materials, which restrained market expansion. Additionally, customers were being more careless in their grooming practices, which reduced the demand for razors. Moreover, supply channels were hampered by lockdown limitations all over the world. Additionally, gaps in the global inventory supply chains for the disposable razor industry have been caused by interruptions in manufacturing services brought on by strict lockdown regulations and social distance standards.

Rising Demand For Safety Razors

In the modern era, along with a significant number of breakthroughs being witnessed across the market, safety razors are another emerging trend. People all over the world are increasingly adopting safety razors for their attribute of delivering clean and satisfactory results. Additionally, safety razors enable closer shaving. Cartridge-based blades wrap their blades in plastic buffers and can have two to seven blades. Multi-bladed cartridge razors can be used to shave neat and clean lines.

Market Restraining Factors

Itchiness And Irritation Caused By Razors

Regarding razor burn, the ongoing itchiness caused by shaving, safety razors excel most visibly in this area. This irritation can be made worse by a number of things, including shaving the same spot repeatedly, using a sharp blade, shaving too closely or with too much pressure, or using an unclean blade. It is simple to understand how a multi-bladed razor cartridge's design could exacerbate some of these issues. To begin with, having many blades implies that by default, each stroke drags a number of razors across the same surface. Re-shaving an area just makes the issue worse.
