    Disposable Diaper Case Disposable Diaper Case Presentation Transcript

    • 1 Procter & Gamble Plaza Cincinnati, OH 45202 United States
    •  
    • ECONOMIC Early disposable diapers were expensive and so used primarily for travel Advancement in technology and growing penetration countered the lack of economic stimulus
    • SOCIAL Decline in births was offset by no. of women of child bearing age, resulting in increased penetration. Also, increase in no. of working mothers meant additional income which translated to discretionary expenses like disposable vs. cloth diapers (despite being expensive). Mothers were increasingly older and better educated. Families had become more affluent and mobile during this time.
    • TECHNOLOGY
      • Invention of polymers and plastics such as polyethylene and porous rayon
      • Process Reengineering = Sophisticated block-long, continuous-process machine = 400 diapers/min = 5.5c/diaper from 10c/diaper
      • Adoption of fluff pulp instead of paper = greater absorbency for weight
      • Study on hydrophobic materials ( breaking of Water molecules into atoms and better understanding of water’s unique molecular structure)‏
      • Built-in adhesives by K-C replaced safety pins
      • Advancement in Media technology like Radio, Spot and national TV and growing adoption of these created better marketing opportunities
      • Dramatic Increase in machine speeds was a function of engineering improvements and complexity of diapers
      • High-end diaper forming assembly cost $2-$4 million contributing to barriers for entry
      • Cost did not drive demand
        • Cheaper European-style FAILED
      • Most important factor: CONVENIENCE & QUALITY
      • Market break-through:
        • Quality improvement
        • Heavy advertising (targeted to working moms and mobile families)‏
        • Early exposure (Used for babies in hospitals)‏
      • By 1973: Largest product category in baby care. Almost equaling:
        • Paper napkins ($160 M)‏
        • Paper towels ($470 M)‏
        • Bathroom tissue ($533 M)‏
      • Highly Concentrated Market = Stiff Competition = Companies belly up:
        • Borden
        • Scott
        • International Paper
        • Chicopee’s Chux
      INDUSTRY ANALYSIS
    •  
    • Disposable Diaper Market = Huge Opportunity!
      • In 1973 alone…
        • 3.14 million births
        • Each baby needs 55 diapers per week average
          • 2,860 diapers per year
        • 42% penetration of diaperable babies
      = 3.77 billion diapers (compared to 104 million at 1% penetration in 1966)‏

    • Competitive Analysis Market Share of Leading Competitors (1973)‏ Market Share of Leading Competitors (1971-1973)‏ Year 1971 1972 1973 Procter & Gamble 85% 80% 69% Kimberly-Clark 3% 7% 17% Jonson & Johnson Brand - - 2% Other Brands 10% 4% 3% Private Label 3% 9% 9%
    • HERFINDAHL-HIRSCHMAN INDEX
        • An HHI index of 5,144 indicates that the industry is highly concentrated. This largely due to the fact that Procter & Gamble had a dominating market share in 1973.

    • Competitive Perceptual Map Test National Market Product Performance High Low Key Notes: 1) Parents expressing the highest overall preference for Pampers in the 1974 Consumer Reports was critical for P&G, as parents’ choice in the disposable diaper market was highly performance-sensitive, and a diaper that performed poorly soon lost market position. 2) Pampers, Kimbies (K-C), Johnson’s, and Curity (C-P) were all priced relatively similarly, with Kimbies lowest at $.056 per diaper and Pampers highest at $.06 per diaper in 1974.

    • Diaper Manufacturer Distributor Consumer Raw Material Supplier Diaper Industry Supply Chain
    • Disposable Diaper Manufacturing Process
    • Incumbency advantages accrue at every stage in the value chain R&D Manf Distribution Retailers Consumers
    • P&G Incumbency Advantages: R&D and Consumer Knowledge
      • In 1973, P&G spent much more money on R&D research than the industry standard of at least $10 million annually
        • We see that investment paying off in machine efficiencies as well as a better understanding what consumers want (design, feel, quality)‏
    •  
    • P&G Incumbency Advantages: Manufacturing & Distribution
      • Machine Efficiencies:
        • P&G was superior in maximizing machine efficiencies producing over 100/min. more than their closest competitor (350-400/diapers min., compared to K-C’s 250-275/min.)‏
        • Annual sales rate per machine was $1.5mil higher than their closest competitor
      • Distribution:
        • P&G reached national distribution rollout in (3 yrs), half the time it took K-C (6yrs)‏
      • Fluff Pulp - Integrated
        • Had more control over one of their highest production costs by bringing it in house, we also presumed it would be cheaper than purchasing from suppliers
      • Mass Shipping:
        • Capitalized on full-carload and trainload shipments
    • Distribution and Marketing
    • P&G Incumbency Advantages: Advertising
      • Advertising dollars spent
        • It costs P&G $.04 in advertising for every $1 in sales, almost 1/3 of K-C’s $.11 for every $1 in sales*
      Because P&G spent so much on advertising and consumers knew they wanted Pampers going into the store, P&G did not offer many retailer support allowances such as consumer advertising, sampling, and promotions. * Assuming advertising is directly correlated to sales, with other sales variables remaining constant
      • Brand Equity
      • P&G has spent 35.6M on marketing specifically oriented to their Pampers brand. This is about 4 times as much as its closest competitor.
