South Korea Electric Shaver Market Outlook

The South Korea electric shaver industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2023 and 2028. Growing consumers' awareness and demand for grooming and hygiene-related products, along with the emergence of e-commerce platforms, are anticipated to drive the electric market growth in South Korea during the given forecast period.

 

Key Trends in the South Korea Electric Shaver Market

An electric shaver is a gadget that uses electricity to shave. In addition to using batteries, newer electric shavers may incorporate a plug or adaptor. There have been several varieties of powered shavers produced over the years. A DC motor, which runs on batteries or mains power, could be used to propel the blades. Many electric shavers now use rechargeable batteries to power them. A solenoid powered by AC (alternate current) could also be used to power an electro-mechanical oscillator. The device is used to get rid of unwanted facial and bodily hair quickly and painlessly.

 

Growing Demand for Personal Care and Grooming Products, Along with Social Media Marketing

Appearance plays an important role in getting a job or setting a good first impression at any social gathering. For men, keeping a clean shaved face signifies sophistication, intelligence, and being hygienic. There is societal pressure on all genders to follow some norms in order to fit into society. Moreover, the beauty standards are high in South Korea, so in order to keep the skin moisturized, healthy, and wrinkle-free, people shave their facial hair and use several skincare products. This factor drives the demand for grooming products, thereby bolstering the electric shaver market in South Korea. High smartphone ownership and internet penetration further increase the usage of e-commerce and propels electric shavers market growth. Social media marketing and collaboration with influencers and celebrities motivate customers to try the same products as their idols.

 

The Growing Prevalence of E-commerce Platforms and Semiconductor Supply is Again Catching Pace in South Korea

The purchase of electric shavers and other grooming products has considerably bolstered online channels owing to busy lifestyles and longer working hours. The COVID-19 pandemic created numerous opportunities for e-commerce platforms and manufacturers to expand their sales overseas, along with South Korea. During the lockdown, there was a temporary halt in market growth due to the limited supply of semiconductors in the industry. Semiconductors have diverse industrial applications, especially in the electronic and automotive industries, which are now following a positive trajectory, helping the electric shaver market overcome shortage-related uncertainties, thus augmenting its growth in the South Korean market.

The demand for electric shavers is further driven by the growing interest in grooming, along with ease of access and affordability.
Increasing Disposable Incomes and Demand for Premium Electric Shavers Drive Market Expansion
