Market Sectors

Disposable Tissue Products

The disposable tissue products sector is comprised of the following
products: toilet tissue, facial tissue, kitchen towels and baby wipes.
These are all made using soft paper.

Toilet tissue makes up the bulk of the disposable tissue products sector
and major brands in the market include Andrex and Velvet. Demand for
facial tissue tends to rise in winter, when influenza and cold epidemics
typically become more prevalent, as well as during the summer as a
result of hay fever and other similar symptoms. Own labels are playing
an increasingly active role in the sector in all product categories.

Disposable Nappies and Trainer Products

The vast majority of parents prefer to use disposable nappies over
terry-towel variants. The Environment Agency estimates that the
penetration of disposable nappies is 96.4%. Although this figure was
collected in 2004, it is not likely to have varied significantly in more
recent years. Products in the sector differ based on the stage of a
child’s development, as well as their purpose for specific occasions,
such as night-time nappies and swimmer pants.

Sanitary Protection Products

This sector is comprised of products that are principally used by
females during menstruation, but also to absorb various vaginal
discharge. This includes both sanitary towels and panty liners. Tampons
are also included as they parallel the purpose and function of sanitary
towels and panty liners, though they are made with cotton rather than
paper. The sector also includes products that help to keep incontinence
and bladder weakness under control, such as adult diapers. Brand loyalty
is strongest in this sector.
