New Market Report: Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in Ecuador

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon May 11 2015

The COMEX (External Commerce Committee, in Spanish) introduced import barriers in December 2013, supposedly to improve quality controls, which affected cotton wool/buds/pads in Ecuador as most products in the category are imported, and the restrictions also affected raw materials.

Competitive Landscape

Beiersdorf Ecuador SA led value sales in 2014 with a 55% value share. This is mainly due to the company’s renowned product quality and its large distribution network. Also, with its brand Hansaplast, the firm is present in all three categories (cotton wool, buds and pads). Beiersdorf is stronger within cotton buds. Hansaplast has strong brand positioning due to its presence in other categories such as wound care (with band-aids) and foot deodorants. Furthermore, the firm’s products tend to be more expensive, so its value sales are large considering its positioning and demand

Industry Prospects

Over the forecast period consumption patterns are expected to remain similar to those of the review period. This will be due mainly to consumers’ awareness of cotton wool/buds/pads’ use. Also, since it is a category which in general lacks advertising, no major changes are expected.
