Although cotton wool/buds/pads are considered basic products for all households, the recession has taken its toll on sales. The impact of the recession hit value sales the hardest due to consumer migration to private label and economy brands, while volume growth has also been negative as financially struggling consumers have been left with no choice but to cut down on less essential products. As a consequence, sales declined by 2% in both volume and current value terms in 2013. These declines were both heavier than the respective review period averages.

Private label dominated cotton wool/buds/pads in 2013 with a 75% value share. In a mature environment with a low level of innovation and technology, consumers are happy with the quality and lower prices of retailers’ private label products.

Industry Prospects

Maturity and a lack of significant innovation, together with the economic crisis, indicate that cotton wool/buds/pads will not witness positive growth over the forecast period. Consumers will continue to sacrifice brand over price, and this will have a significant impact on share. To balance the losses, most manufacturers will turn their focus to the lucrative production of private label products and try to establish contracts with retailers for the production of such products.
