¿Cuál es la importancia real de la falta de tampones en Argentina?


Por Horacio Larghi – Contributing Analyst

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.

Going Premium in Russia is a Short-Term Tactic

Amin AlkhatibAnalyst Insight by Amin Alkhatib

The Russian beer market has taken a hit in the past five years as a consequence of the financial crisis in 2008, legislative changes in the beer market since 2011, and economic sanctions in response to the Russian government’s actions in the Ukraine. According to Euromonitor International, over 2008-2013, beer volume sales in Russia declined at a CAGR of 4%, with 2013 showing a 5% drop. The macroeconomic beating taken by the Russian market in recent years and legislative changes have pegged its volume sales performance below that of the rest of Europe. This has resulted in brewers changing emphasis from volume sales expansion to protecting margins.

How Does the Sharp Decline in Oil Prices Impact Oil Exporters?


Global oil prices have fallen sharply since mid-2014 and are expected to stay low during the course of 2015. For oil exporters, this leads to significant shortfalls in government revenues, rising unemployment, falling income and expenditure, potential economic recession as well as increased risk of social instability. However, it can also present an opportunity for oil exporters to enhance efforts to diversify their economies.

Three Key Drivers for Innovation in Beauty in 2015

Nicole_TyrimouAnalyst Insight by Nicole Tyrimou - Beauty and Personal Care Analyst

View Nicole Tyrimou's profile on LinkedIn

With the new year underway, it is time to reflect back on the most important innovation drivers which influenced the beauty market in 2014 and are expected to dominate new product development for the industry in the coming months; namely product customisation, internet-born brands and Asia’s impact on beauty innovation.

Customisation in beauty continues to drive innovation

Customisation has already been a prevailing trend for the industry during the last several years, driven by a greater demand for higher-efficacy alternatives and more personalised offerings; from completely bespoke skin care and foundation, to products that target specific consumer groups (men, children, over 60s) and those that promote specialised functions (for eyes or neck, for example) and concern-based solutions.

View Ina Dawer's profile on LinkedIn

Energy drinks shows a promising future, with manufacturers such as Red Bull and Monster now looking beyond pubs and restaurants for promotions and advertisements. Euromonitor International’s forthcoming research on non-alcoholic drinks in India reveals that energy drinks’ off-trade volumes are forecast to grow by11% year-on-year between 2014 and 2019. This is a notable acceleration on the 8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) predicted for 2013-2018 in our previous year’s research. The stronger expected growth comes after quantifying the impact of changes in “soft” demand drivers like increased marketing promotions and product launches.
