However, it should be noted that this value sales growth wasgenerated mainly by price increases. The biggest increase in value and volume sales wasseen in toilet paper, the most essential and needed product.
Prices increasing at below the rate of inflationIn most tissue and hygiene categories prices increased, albeit not significantly. Asconsumers have limited resources to purchase disposable paper products, manufacturersare not able to raise prices by high rates, as they would like to maintain or grow volumesales too, and price increases overall were below the rate of inflation.Private label still gaining shareThe share of private label in tissue and hygiene is higher than in other retail tradeindustries, because private label products have the same quality as premium brands, buttheir prices are lower. In addition, many paper products are purchased in drugstores,discounters and hypermarkets/supermarkets, where many of the private label brands canbe found under retailers’ names. Consumers are not so loyal to brands and they tend tochoose the cheaper one if they can.Away-from-home products declineDue to the poor economic condition for institutions, especially offices, hotels andrestaurants, due to declining tourism levels and because medical establishments are in areally bad condition due to a lack of strong financing, consumption of AFH products hasbeen declining for years in volume terms and stagnated in value terms in 2010. The onlyreason value sales did not decline was because of price increases.Standard brands winning against premium brandsAs consumer loyalty is lower than in other retail trade industries, consumers choosebetween the cheaper products. Prices of premium brands are higher, but their qualities arenot significantly better than those of standard products, so consumers choose from thewide range of standard brands. As consumer spending power has not recovered yet,consumption of standard and cheaper brands is growing at the expense of expensivepremium brands.Table of ContentsTissue and Hygiene in Hungary - Industry OverviewEXECUTIVE SUMMARYGrowing value salesPrices increasing at below the rate of inflationPrivate label still gaining shareAway-from-home products declineStandard brands winning against premium brandsKEY TRENDS AND DEVELOPMENTSEffects of economic crisis still impacting tissue and hygieneStrong price competition in tissue and hygieneEnvironmental awareness is limited in HungaryPrivate label still popularAway-from-home products decliningMARKET INDICATORSTable 1 Birth Rates 2005-2010Table 2 Infant Population 2005-2010

In addition, because prices were increased, consumers couldnot purchase the same quantity as in 2009 and volume sales declined in the overallcategory.
COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPELeading companies are the same as in the retail trade as they also supply institutions,hotels and restaurants as well. The leading companies are Forest Papír Kft, SCA HygieneProducts Kft and Tento Hungary. International companies could supply the institutionalconsumers at a lower and better price level than end users, although small domesticcompanies are also supplying mainly medical establishments, as they could offer lowprices.PROSPECTSAlthough in the retail channel consumers will tend to be see better spending power in thefuture, key consumers of AFH products will experience a very slow and long recovery intheir economic situation. It is expected that offices will be able to spend more money onAFH products, while hotels, restaurants and medical establishments will not raise theirpurchases, because prices are predicted to grow further. As a result, volume sales willgrow slightly over the forecast period.CATEGORY DATATable 19 Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Category: Value 2005-2010Table 20 Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Category: % Value Growth2005-2010Table 21 Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Distribution Format: %Analysis 2005-2010Table 22 Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Category and DistributionFormat: % Analysis 2010Table 23 Forecast Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Category: Value2010-2015Table 24 Forecast Away-From-Home Sales of Tissue and Hygiene by Category: % ValueGrowth 2010-2015Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads in Hungary - Category AnalysisHEADLINESTRENDSCotton wool/buds/pads is one of the most limited categories in the whole tissue andhygiene products market, which means that it could not grow significantly in terms ofvolume. Growth was realised in value sales terms thanks to increasing prices. There aresome alternative products like wet wipes that can substitute cotton wool/buds/pads.COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPEIn 2010, Hartmann-Rico Hungária Kft led value sales with a 38% share. The turnover ofthe company in cotton wool/buds/pads was HUF261 million in 2010, thanks to its popular
Ricolan and Bel brands. The products of Hartmann-Rico are available mostly in allhypermarkets, supermarkets and drugstores, and prices are also affordable.PROSPECTSWhile the share of cotton buds and pads will grow further in this category because theycan be used for cosmetic purposes, demand for cotton wool is expected to decline as it canbe substituted by other products.CATEGORY DATATable 25 Retail Sales of Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads: Value 2005-2010Table 26 Retail Sales of Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads: % Value Growth 2005-2010Table 27 Retail Sales of Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads by Type: % Value Breakdown 2007-2010Table 28 Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads Retail Company Shares 2006-2010Table 29 Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads Retail Brand Shares 2007-2010Table 30 Forecast Retail Sales of Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads: Value 2010-2015Table 31 Forecast Retail Sales of Cotton Wool/Buds/Pads: % Value Growth 2010-2015Incontinence in Hungary - Category AnalysisHEADLINESTRENDSThanks to the wide communication of the importance of incontinence products consumersknow these products better and are willing to try more of them. However, as the spendingpower of consumers has not recovered totally yet, volume sales only grew slightly in 2010and value sales growth was boosted by unit price increases.COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPEIncontinence products is led by SCA Hygiene Products Kft, which accounted for 67% ofvalue sales of the category to reach HUF1.7 billion in 2010. SCA Hygiene’s brand is Tena,which has the longest tradition in Hungary, and this brand is the best advertised andpromoted brand in Hungary. In addition, the prices of SCA Hygiene are affordable, but thequality of its products is high.PROSPECTSVolume sales of incontinence products depend on the number of elderly people mainly andas this is growing continuously in Hungary and products are improved it is expected thatvolume and value sales of incontinence products will grow further over the forecast period,albeit slowly, as the spending power of consumers is also recovering only slowly.CATEGORY DATA

Premiumbrands and products have the same quality, as do private label brands, so usually the keytool for attracting consumers is price, which did not increase in 2010 as the spendingpower of consumers had not yet recovered. Due to this very strong competition,manufacturers find raising value and volume sales very hard.COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPEProcter & Gamble led sales in 2010 with a 33% share of value sales ofnappies/diapers/pants. The total turnover of the company in nappies/diapers/pants wasHUF4.9 billion in 2010, which comes from the Pampers brand. Pampers is present in allsubcategories of nappies/diapers/pants and it is the leading brand in tissue and hygieneoverall with a market share of 7%. The reason for the popularity of Procter & Gamble andits Pampers brand is the very strong marketing activity of the company and its having thewidest product range. While the prices of Pampers products are not the lowest, thecompany promises to offer the best quality.PROSPECTSAs the performance of nappies/diapers/pants depends on the number of new borns it ishard to predict future performance. However, as falling unit prices are expected, valuesales will likely stagnate or even slightly decline, with a constant value CAGR of almost -1% forecast, while volume sales are predicted to see a 2% CAGR over the forecast periodbecause of the strong competition between multinationals and private label brands.CATEGORY DATATable 38 Retail Sales of Nappies/Diapers/Pants by Category: Value 2005-2010Table 39 Retail Sales of Nappies/Diapers/Pants by Category: % Value Growth 2005-2010

TRENDSThe key trend of this channel is that consumers use different types of wipes for manypurposes. Consumers use mainly baby wipes, while general purpose wipes are used forcleaning toilets or furniture. The reason behind this trend is the price of the differentwipes. General purpose wipes and general baby wipes are cheaper than specialisedproducts. However, manufacturers try to persuade consumers to use specialised wipes fortheir specific purposes in order to boost sales, but some categories, especiallyimpregnated wet wipes, declined in 2010.COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPEValue sales of wipes are led by Johnson & Johnson with its Johnson’s Baby brand in babywipes. Johnson & Johnson’s share is 24% of value sales of wipes and 29% in baby wipes.The reason for the success of Johnson & Johnson is that it was one of the first companiesoffering baby wipes in Hungary, and its products are of a high quality, which is importantfor consumers. The prices of Johnson & Johnson are also affordable; consumers can findproducts in every price level from the cheapest to the most expensive goods. Next comeSCA Hygiene Products Hungary Kft with its Libero baby wipes and Sara Lee Hungary Kftwith its Gaby baby wipes, which have the longest tradition in Hungary. SCA Hygiene has a14% share and Sara Lee Hungary Kft 13%, with Beiersdorf and Procter & Gamble both on10%. The leading companies also have brands in intimate wipes, but the share of theseproducts is much lower than the share of baby wipes in value sales of wipes.PROSPECTSAs consumers’ spending power is expected to grow slowly, more expensive and specialisedproducts are predicted to perform well and the whole category will see stable growth invalue and volume sales.CATEGORY DATATable 57 Retail Sales of Wipes by Category: Value 2005-2010Table 58 Retail Sales of Wipes by Category: % Value Growth 2005-2010Table 59 Wipes Retail Company Shares 2006-2010Table 60 Wipes Retail Brand Shares 2007-2010Table 61 Forecast Retail Sales of Wipes by Category: Value 2010-2015Table 62 Forecast Retail Sales of Wipes by Category: % Value Growth 2010-2015About Us:ReportsnReports is an online library of over 100,000+ market research reports and in-depthmarket research studies & analysis of over 5000 micro markets.
