Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is growing visibility of disposable undergarments in mainstream market. Disposable undergarments such as bras and panties have become a trend in mainstream discussions. This coupled with awareness initiatives has resulted in people becoming less embarrassed to discuss urinary leakage issues in public. This has created a paradigm shift in the consumer expectations and acceptance of these products. Vendors are capitalizing on this opportunity by retailing these products openly. Disposable undergarment has now found separate store shelves at supermarkets, pharmacies, and supercenters.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is proliferation of strategic initiatives. Innovation and effectiveness of undergarment products such as disposable undergarment including bras and underwear the key to the growth of the market, and sustenance both retail outlets and online retail stores that engage in the sales of undergarments. Several vendors are entering into strategic alliances and investing in R&D for innovation of new products. Strategic alliances have resulted in better financial stability to develop latest products with enhanced efficiency in terms of safety and protection. These strategic decisions help companies to generate revenue, establish their presence, and acquire a significant share of the market by leveraging customer base, technology, financial capability, and R&D capabilities of their partners.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is negative environmental impact. Disposable undergarments are known to cause environmental pollution because they are made from non-biodegradable materials. Materials such as plastic, elastics, and superabsorbent polymers such as polypropylene take longer duration to break down or degrade chemically, remain stagnant in landfills, and pollute the soil present in and around the landfills. The market is likely to witness increased sales in the coming years; however, sourcing of adequate raw materials for continuous production of disposable undergarments is a critical issue. Several raw materials used in the production process may be in short supply, which will negatively impact the production process of manufacturers, thus creating a demand-supply gap in the market. Despite the shortage, vendors are sourcing raw materials at higher prices to meet with increasing demand for disposable undergarments. Subsequently, high costs and shortage of raw materials will curb the profit margin of vendors over a period in the market.
