Report Published: "Retail Tissue in Ecuador"

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu May 07 2015

In December 2013 the COMEX (External Commerce Committee, in Spanish), introduced Resolution 116, which created import barriers by requiring importers to obtain quality certificates for finished products and raw materials. In January 2014 the Communication Law’s regulation document was published. It mainly affects advertising by international firms (which previously accounted for over 90% of advertising in value terms) as the law prohibits all advertising produced outside of Ecuador. This left international firms with import barriers and a lack of marketing options.

Competitive Landscape

Kimberly-Clark Ecuador SA led sales in 2014, with a 47% value share. The firm has strong positioning with its brand Scott, the leader in retail tissue, as it is perceived as a high quality product. The firm also invests constantly in new products and marketing campaigns.
