New Study: Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in Ireland

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 04 2015

Consumers are increasing their purchases of time-saving, convenient products when it comes to skin care. The cleanse, tone and moisturise skin care routine became less known in 2014. Consumers, instead of purchasing cleansing lotion, toner, cotton wool balls/pads, etc, were opting for facial wipes in place of these. They simply want to be able to take their make-up off as quickly as possible at the end of a busy day or lively night. Wipes involve a quick swipe and can then be discarded. These are labour-saving, and as a result of consumers purchasing more such products, the manufacturers of cotton wool products are losing out.

Competitive Landscape

Irish Breeze continued to lead the way in cotton wool/buds/pads in 2014, with a 47% value share. Its share declined on the previous year, when it accounted for over 48% of total value sales. However, it continued to be the only significant brand. In second place was SCA Hygiene Products with a 14% share, showing negligible growth, and Boots Retail, which also saw negligible growth to remain at a 12% share in 2014.
