About This Report


The Sanitary Product Manufacturing industry converts paper stock into paper sanitary products such as toilet paper, facial tissue and tampons. The industry is in a period of long-term decline, as deteriorating profit margins and rising import competition demonstrate. Import competition is partly rising because many companies are moving their production overseas to take advantage of lower production costs. Recent poor economic conditions have also exacerbated problems. Industry revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 0.5% over the five years through 2015-16 to £2.4 billion, including a decline of 1.8% in the current year.

Industry operators convert sanitary paper stock, wadding, pulp or paper into sanitary products such as facial tissues, handkerchiefs, table napkins, kitchen towels, toilet paper, disposable nappies, sanitary towels and tampons. The final products are sold to wholesalers for distribution, straight to retailers or directly to large commercial customers.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
