"Sanitary Protection in Kenya" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Apr 12 2015

Only around 30-40% of adult women in Kenya use sanitary protection, with most alternatives such as cotton wool, recycled clothing, sponges or toilet paper. These alternatives are considerably more affordable and also have an entrenched popularity and tradition in the country, with their use thus not being confined solely to low-income consumers. There is however a growing focus on enabling women to use sanitary protection, with a particular focus on schoolgirls due to the propensity for many to miss out on education during menstruation.

Competitive Landscape

Proctor & Gamble remained the dominant player in sanitary protection in 2014, with a value share of 64%. This was chiefly due to the company supporting its Always brand with aggressive marketing, particularly targeting teenage girls, including TV advertising. The company also benefits from its participation in the Always Keeping Girls in School campaign and from providing feminine hygiene education and free samples in schools. Proctor & Gamble also benefits from strong new product development in this area, for example launching Always Platinum targeting mid- to high-income urban women in 2013.

Industry Prospects

Sanitary protection is expected to move further into the mainstream in the forecast period. This will be partly thanks to strong government and company initiatives, particularly from Proctor & Gamble, with these being extensively covered in the country's media. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the hygiene and comfort benefits offered by sanitary protection, while urbanisation and rising disposable income levels are also expected to broaden the use of these products. By the end of the forecast period, the majority of women could well be using sanitary protection.
