Away-From-Home Tissue and Hygiene in Australia - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 16 2015

AFH incontinence experienced the largest value growth at 9% within AFH tissue and hygiene in 2014. The increasing number of people aged 65 and over became a major contributory factor in this growth. Due to specific demographics, most consumers use moderate/heavy incontinence products. The increasing demand for incontinence products led to slight price increases, despite the fact that aged care homes are price conscious. Increasing demand, financial support from the government and a lack of substitute products are three major reasons for the unit price increase in AFH incontinence.

Competitive Landscape

Kimberly-Clark Australia and Asaleo Care are major players in the AFH arena. Price is often a deciding factor in AFH and large companies have a competitive advantage as they can offer low prices due to economies of scale. Both companies are international and have local manufacturing plants, which allows them to be less dependent on fluctuations of the Australian dollar which hit its lowest level since 2010 at the end of 2014.

Industry Prospects

AFH tissue is expected to record a modest 1% value CAGR over the forecast period. The weak Australian dollar makes price competition very hard. Local manufacturers Kimberly-Clark Australia and Asaleo Care are enjoying the opportunity to produce at lower comparative unit costs. These leaders are expected to strengthen their presence in Australia, while importers are struggling with the negative value growth of the Australian dollar in the second half of 2014. This might have a negative impact on imports of AFH tissue in 2015-2016, making imports from Asian countries less attractive for small companies.
