Instead, most of the incontinent Swiss consumers look for relevant adult incontinence products themselves without a doctor’s prescription.
Migros Genossenschaftsbund maintained its leading position in incontinence with a value share of 22% in 2016. The company led sales over the review period and its sales value has been increasing. However, due to the strong performance of branded products from other manufacturers, such as Always Discreet from Procter & Gamble Switzerland and Tena from SCA Hygiene Products, the value share of Migros’ private label Secure has seen a declining trend since 2013.

The increasingly ageing Swiss population is expected to be the significant contributor to growth in incontinence value sales.
