Over the past five years, the Cotton Personal-Care Product Manufacturing industry's diversified markets between businesses and consumers have helped the industry avoid volatility in response to movements in corporate and consumer spending. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to grow at a slightly faster pace than the previous five-year period, as consumer spending increases and as the projected price of cotton reverses its previous downward trend. In addition, an expected increase in per capita disposable income over the period will encourage consumers to purchase specialized facial wipes and make-up removal pads that are priced at a premium for their enhanced design, or organic materials. However, external competition from personal-care product manufacturers of other industries and foreign producers will continue to pose problems for the industry. Nevertheless, thriving demand from consumers domestically and abroad will support rising sales over the next five years.
