New Market Study Published: Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in India

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jul 07 2014

Although wipes continued to eat away at the share of cotton wool/buds/pads sold for personal use, the traditional use of cotton for removal of makeup and facial cleansing supported retail sales, particularly through health and beauty specialists. Some uses require a liquid product that is applied with cotton, which is difficult to replace when the liquid is the true desired product and the cotton is merely an applicator. For general wiping or makeup removal prior to cleansing, impregnated cosmetic wipes may not always suffice. Many users have a regimen and product family that they use, which underpins the staying power of cotton despite the competition from wipes. Declines in sales from 2010-2012 largely incorporate the share lost to wipes as the market is reaching a level of normalization as the two products begin to coexist.

Competitive Landscape

Unilever remained the leading manufacturer of branded products in 2013 with a 34% value share, though share for the company was down slightly from 2012. Unilever's presence in the market is largely based on Its flagship brand, Q-Tips, which is well established as a "must-have" product for bathroom cabinets and has long been a household name in Canada.
