"Incontinence in Peru" Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Apr 15 2015

Traditionally, incontinence was a condition Peruvians felt ashamed of, therefore there was little information, restricted advertising and no product innovation. Moreover, consumers who needed these products avoided purchasing them directly. However, the situation has drastically changed in the past 10 years, with leading players opting to run frequent educational campaigns that contributed to change Peruvian perceptions and assume incontinence as just one of the common conditions that usually affect elderly people. Therefore, the category is developing, and gradually engaging in further market segmentation, by gender and specific needs. In addition, leading players run periodical advertising campaigns where people who suffer from incontinence are shown leading their usual lifestyles. Nevertheless, the slowdown of the Peruvian economy determined that few new consumers gained access to these products, moreover some consumers traded down to more affordable brands or purchased this type of product less frequently. As a consequence, the category posted a 5% growth in current value terms in 2014, below the performance of the previous year (10%).
