From an estimated $17,405.4 million in 2021, the global razor market size will likely rise to $20,866.6 million by 2030, at a 2.0% CAGR between 2021 and 2030.

To leverage the growing consumer base, these enterprises have already started focusing strongly on product launches. For instance, a new skincare and shaving brand, Planet Kind, was launched by Gillette in February 2021. The products under the brand are made using 85% recycled plastic, paper, or aluminum. Exactly a year earlier, the company had launched the Gillette TREO razor, which has a safety comb built into it.
