Competitive Landscape

Fabrication de Derives de Coton (Faderco) with its brand Cotex led retail tissue in 2015 with a value share of 20%, thanks to its wide product portfolio, which gives it a presence across all categories within retail tissue. Wafa Faile, the historical player in tissue and the former leader, was ranked second and accounted for a value share of 19% in 2015. This company offers economy and mid-priced products, with prices kept low. Wafa, the oldest brand in the market, enjoys widespread consumer awareness and trust, and also benefits from an extensive distribution reach.

Industry Prospects

The domestic production of high-quality retail tissue products is expected to increase in Algeria over the forecast period, with Faderco being particularly focused on gaining a strong share in this area. The company opened new production facilities at Setif in 2015, with an annual production capacity of 30,000 tonnes per annum and a focus on high-quality retail tissue produced from virgin fibre.
