Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in Algeria - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Aug 26 2014

Cotton wool/buds/pads benefited from rising disposable income levels during the review period, with these encouraging low-income consumers to switch to cotton wool/buds/pads from textile alternatives. This trend was also encouraged by a growing focus on hygiene and by ongoing urbanisation, offering consumers easier access to these products. This trend was also encouraged by widening distribution for affordable domestic brands Socothyd and Fabrication de Derives de Coton's Faderco.

Competitive Landscape

Domestic company Socothyd was the clear leader in cotton wool/buds/pads throughout the review period and accounted for 43% value share in 2013. The company benefits from offering low prices and wide distribution via grocery retailers and health and beauty specialist retailers. The company also saw the strongest share gain in 2013 over the previous year, gaining over two percentage points. This share gain was thanks to more low-income consumers beginning to buy cotton wool, with its products viewed as offering a good quality-to-price ratio. While the company only offers cotton wool, it also offers a variant positioned as suitable for facial care, with this being differentiated by its use of dyes and featuring cotton balls in attractive blue, pink and yellow colours.

Industry Prospects

Fabrication de Derives de Coton is expected to be a major force in driving sales growth for cotton wool/buds/pads in the forecast period. This player is expected to continue to focus on production quality improvements and also to invest in expanding production capacity. With its wide range of products and good quality, the company is thus likely to continue to gain share from imported brands and could also increasingly gain share from the leader Socothyd. However, Socothyd is expected to retain the leading position in the forecast period, benefiting from its low prices as more low-income consumers begin to buy these products.
