About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Wipes have steadily gained popularity in Costa Rica in recent years as increasingly busy lifestyles have strengthened consumer appreciation for the convenience of such products and rising disposable incomes have made them more affordable. In line with this trend, wipes has witnessed increasing segmentation, with manufacturers now offering a wide assortment of value-added products for specific usage occasions. Examples include ‘scented’ variants and products that have disinfectant properties, as well as wipes that are designed for optimum cleaning of different types of surfaces. This trend towards greater segmentation has been observed in both cleaning and personal wipes categories.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Kimberly-Clark remained the clear leader in wipes in 2014, claiming an overall retail value share of 47% with its widely distributed Huggies brand. The Huggies range enjoys a strong early mover advantage in baby wipes, the largest category, and has a longstanding reputation for offering good quality products at competitive prices. Reckitt Benckiser Centroamerica SA, which offers the Lysol brand, was the second leading wipes player overall with a value share of 14%, closely followed by Clorox de Centroamerica SA and its Clorox brand with a 13% share. These two players dominated the all-purpose cleaning wipes category. Other prominent competitors in wipes in 2014 included Johnson & Johnson, International Distributions IMA SA and Distribuidora Lucema SA.

PROSPECTS

  • Wipes will continue to perform well over the forecast period as disposable incomes in Costa Rica rise and the trend towards busier lifestyles further strengthens consumer appreciation for the convenience and versatility of these products. Marketing activities and improvements in retail distribution will also help to sustain the expansion of the entire category, as will further segmentation, particularly in underdeveloped areas such as intimate wipes.
