Market Report, "Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in Chile", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Apr 20 2015

The low volume growth and moderate current value growth recorded in cotton wool/buds/pads during 2014 left manufacturers with little room to invest in innovation. Besides a handful of minor changes made to the packaging in terms of colour schemes and label design, there was no innovation in terms of the products themselves evident in cotton wool/buds/pads towards the end of the review period. Manufacturers attempted to justify ongoing unit price increases through packaging changes rather than through the launch of new value-added products.

Competitive Landscape

Lastrade Hnos y Cia remained the leading player within cotton wool/buds/pads in 2014 with a 14% value share through its Cotobel brand. However, the company registered a one percentage decline in its value share in the category over the course of the year, due mainly to the surging demand for Wal-Mart Chile’s Equate private label, which achieved a 13% value share in the category. This growth can be directly attributed to the expansion of Wal-Mart’s retail chain within Chile and the increasing popularity of the private label among middle-income and low-income consumers.
