their high quality and super thin condoms.
With medium price range, Okamoto attracts
many buyers in Vietnam.

targets a higher price range with a wider

customer base is quite selective.
Compared with Durex’s competitors in Vietnam, OK lacks in the availability of condom types

range of choices (ultrathin, peak performance, performa and ribbed..). On the other hand,
OK condom has a price advantage (only 9,000VND/per box) thanks to government support.
