Summary

Sanitary Paper Product Manufacturing in the USSanitary paper products rode out the recession better than most industries in the manufacturing sector. Their status as everyday necessities kept the industry afloat even while profit was pinched as consumers bought lower-priced goods. As the economy recovers, consumers will be able to afford higher-quality and more expensive industry products, boosting revenue. Changing demographics - fewer babies, aging baby boomers - have made for a shift in product ratios, with fewer diapers required and more incontinence products needed. Industry operators will contend with growing import penetration, which will force many to slash prices and operating costs.Operators convert sanitary paper stock or wadding, as well as pulp and paper, into sanitary paper products such as facial tissues and handkerchiefs, table napkins, towels, toilet paper, disposable diapers and tampons. Some operators may manufacture their own sanitary paper while others purchase it from mills. Final industry products are sold to wholesalers for distribution, straight to retailers or directly to large companies.This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
