Increase in demand for organic and biodegradable raw material-based feminine hygiene products
Conventional sanitary pads contain a combination of synthetic, carcinogenic materials such as dioxin rayon, allergy-provoking metal dyes, and highly processed wood pulp. Use of such extremely permeable contaminants in or near the vaginal area can lead to irritation, itching, discomfort, toxic shock syndrome and other complications. In order to avoid such negative impacts on the human health and environment due to the disposal of such sanitary waste, women are demanding biodegradable, compostable, and eco-friendly sanitary products. Tampons and panty liners to witness high adoption levels in developing countries The demand for high-end products such as internal cleansers and tampons is relatively lower in developing countries as compared to the developed countries, due to premium pricing of such products and lack of awareness. However, the adoption has increased at a notable pace since past few years, due to rising disposable income, modernization in retail format, increasing consumer awareness, and increasing availability of such higher-end feminine hygiene products. Most companies are increasingly focusing on product innovation and are keen on manufacturing and introducing tampons that are comfortable and have a higher absorption potential, for instance, the invention of digital tampons, a tampon without an applicator, is favored by women with a retroverted uterus as the process of correct insertion is comparatively easier than using one with an inflexible applicator. Furthermore, RepHresh, a brand of Church & Dwight, has introduced organic products including pH-balanced tampons, which will boost this market's growth. Therefore, increase in demand for tampons and panty liners in developing countries is a lucrative opportunity for global players to gain foothold in this market.
