Key Market Issues

Older Consumers, who are aged 55 years and over, and Pre-Mid-Lifers aged 36-44 in China are the most frequent users of Men's Disposable Razors and Blades. Rising disposable income and a desire to follow individual grooming trends in the work place is prompting them to use Men's Disposable Razors and Blades on a regular basis.

With shaving being a very precise exercise, customers place great importance on skin protection as well as a smooth shaving experience. Chinese consumers are looking for quality products that fit their needs, which is why it is important for the brand to be well-positioned in the consumer's mind.

Consumers desire better value for money from their purchases by either trading down to lower priced items, or by trading up to higher priced ones when they feel there is value in doing so. This means that value for money isn't limited to simply cost, but also involves offering consumers added value from their purchases at a reasonable price.

Due to rising disposable income and lifestyle changes, Chinese men are becoming more comfortable purchasing Pre-Shave Cosmetics and Aftershaves and Colognes that come with added skincare benefits.

Key Highlights

More lengthy grooming routines among men are driving growth in the Male Toiletries Market. Aftershave and Pre-Shave Cosmetics will continue to see products with extended benefits being targeted at consumers purchasing from the Facial Care category of the Men's Skincare segment.

Men's Disposable Razors and Blades in China is a mature market driven by the demand for high quality and value for money products. This category is increasing in local currency terms, but fluctuations in volatile exchange rates in US$ terms are affecting growth.

Despite increasing disposable income in recent years, many Chinese consumers still remain cost-conscious and tend to opt for private label products for better deals. Meanwhile, the lowest penetration was in Disposable Razors and Blades where private label held a value share of4.9%, mainly due to the low price difference between brands such as Flying Eagle and private label.

The Disposable Razors and Blades category accounted for over 88.2% of the total number of packs used in the Chinese Male Toiletries sector in 2012, driving significant demand for Rigid Plastics, Paper and Board, and Flexible Packaging Bags/Sachets.

The demand for dry shaving and increasing use of Post-Shave cosmetics will explore anti-aging formulations in the Male Toiletries sector, targeting older Chinese consumer. Therefore, marketers of Male Toiletries in China must adapt their strategies to make the most of current trends.
