Static product prices and key demographic variables have harmed the Diaper Manufacturing industry over the five years to 2017. Growth in the number of children has not been sufficient to compensate for stagnant prices. According to the latest available data from the Census, the number of children aged nine and younger is anticipated to remain relatively steady over the five-year period. Since the industry is dominated by two major players, Procter and Gamble and Kimberly-Clark, these two players' scales and distribution capabilities increasing the industry's barriers to success substantially. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is expected to benefit from increasing per capita disposable income and improvements in equity markets. Moreover, the mounting focus among the largest players on the high-end diaper market is anticipated to cause the industry's average profitability to rise further.
This industry designs and produces disposable or cloth diapers, which are garments that are worn to catch excrement.
