Waxing is removing hair from the root by covering body hair with a sticky substance, such as wax, removing the covering, and then yanking the hair out of the follicle. Wax for hair removal is a type of depilatory that can be used to physically or chemically remove undesirable hair from different body regions. Typically, they are made by combining the right raw components in large tanks, then packaging the resulting mixture into individual packages. The wax used for hair removal also eliminates the source of the issue and dry, dead skin cells.

Market Dynamics

Asia Pacific Hair Removal Wax Market Drivers

Rising Disposable Income

Wealthier people buy high-quality hair removal products like waxing. The IMF predicts robust Asia-Pacific economic growth. GDP will grow 6.9% in 2021, outpacing world growth of 5.5%. China, India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia fuel this rise. These countries have increased disposable income due to economic growth. China's 2020 per-capita disposable income was RMB 32,189 (USD 4,800), up 4.7%. In 2020, India's per-capita disposable income climbed 6.8% to INR 1,38,508 (USD 1,866).

As disposable income rises, consumers spend more on personal care in these countries. Rising disposable income, urbanization, and consumer behavior would boost the Indian personal care business to USD 20 billion by 2025. Thus, rising disposable income will benefit hair removal wax.

Asia Pacific Hair Removal Wax Market Restraints

Cultural Norms

Some Asian-Pacific consumers prefer body hair over shaving. As a sign of femininity and beauty, many Indian women preserve their body hair. Hair removal is less common in certain countries, and some women may consider it a Western beauty ideal they don't wish to follow. According to the International Journal of Trichology, body hair removal is becoming more popular in India, especially among younger urban women. However, many Indian women still want body hair, which may limit the expansion of the hair removal wax business. Body hair removal is also uncommon in Southeast Asia. Hair removal is less common in Indonesia because some women see body hair as a sign of maturity. This can hamper the growth of the market.

The Increasing Popularity of At-Home Hair Removal

Many consumers are looking for at-home hair removal techniques that are practical and affordable. The development of e-commerce, the accessibility of cost-effective hair removal products, and the convenience of hair removal at home are some factors driving this trend. Many businesses in the Asia-Pacific region are utilizing this chance by providing products for at-home hair removal. For instance, the popular hair removal product manufacturer Veet sells a variety of at-home hair removal lotions and wax strips. Another business, IPL Laser Hair Removal, provides a laser hair removal system that may be used at home to eliminate hair from various body regions.
