Now, back to the question, With a billion+ people and a growing, affluent middle class, Deodorant market is certainly taking off. FMCG marketers in India dream of getting their Deodorant to be on ?Top 5 Best Selling Men?s Deodorant Brands in India?

A few reasons?some?Indians may not be wearing Deodorant

  • They are Swedesi and dont want to consume western brands.
    • These folks may be waiting for a?swadesi?brand; e.g Baba Ramdev?s pantanjali? deodorant
  • Can?t afford Deodorant
    • ? ? Can you really expect those living on minimum wage to spend ?s on a Deo?
  • Might think that their BO attracts the opposite sex.
