Analyst Insight by Virgilijus Narusevicius - Senior Data Scientist
In this article, we have attempted to characterise category leaders across FMCG industries and the typical market shares they achieve. “Category leader” is generally a highly coveted status as it allows price-setting power and a better ability to influence category trends, enables economies of scale and implies a better bargaining power over retailers and suppliers. It also suggests that the company is doing many things right and it is thus rather common to benchmark against the category leaders and study their past strategies. However, category leader shares vary between industries and a successful company in one industry may differ from another.

En los últimos días fue sensación mediática la falta de tampones en el país. Este producto básico de higiene femenina no se produce localmente y tanto Johnson & Johnson como Kimberly-Clark, las dos principales empresas que dominan el mercado con casi el 90% de las ventas, los importan desde el vecino Brasil, e inclusive desde países más lejanos como la Republica Checa. Las barreras a la importación impuestas por el Gobierno sin duda tuvieron un rol importante en el desabastecimiento de tampones a lo largo del país.
Ahora bien, ¿Es realmente tan importante la falta de tampones? No cabe duda que para las argentinas que compran este producto es un serio inconveniente. Sin embargo, los números demuestran que las argentinas prefieren, y por amplio margen, otras opciones de higiene personal.

Analyst Insight by Franziska Brandenburger - Lead Analyst
Israeli nanotech start-up Cine’al recently announced something of a novel innovation in Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP), namely Hydromash a super absorber made from jellyfish. The company claims Hyrdromash to be both extremely absorbent and highly degradable, allowing it to break down within just 30 days in aerobic conditions. With the race on to produce the first mainstream fully degradable diaper, the advent of another degradable polymer is good news for the industry and may in itself have wider benefits than simply being ‘green’.
Hygiene Growth Blooms
Globally, volume sales of hygiene products continue to show significant growth potential, with diapers in particular likely to break the 200 million unit mark before 2020. Rapid growth has been driven by growing disposable incomes across developing markets, China alone will account for more than a quarter of this growth. While growth is good news for the industry, the disposal of such a large number of diapers will continue to be a strain, especially in markets where waste disposal services are far less developed than is the case in the West, for example.
