Sanitary Paper Product Manufacturing survived the recession better than most industries in the manufacturing sector because of the number of everyday necessities that the industry provides. As the economy recovers, consumers will be able to afford more expensive and high-quality industry products, boosting revenue. Changing demographics, such as a slower birth rate and aging baby boomers, have made for a shift in product ratios, with fewer diapers required and more incontinence products needed.
This industry converts sanitary paper stock or wadding into sanitary paper products. These products include table napkins and tablecloths, toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissues, disposable diapers, sanitary napkins and tampons. Some companies produce their own sanitary paper, while others purchase paper from paper mills. Final products are sold to either wholesalers for distribution or directly to buyers.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
