Hayat has seen growth soar in recent years, as it has entered several new markets in the high-growth MEA region. Most of Hayat’s fastest-growing markets have a significant amount of unmet potential due to large populations unable to afford many disposable tissue and hygiene products. If Hayat can continue to keep prices low, the company will see further significant growth in future.
A key component in Hayat’s ability to maintain lower prices than most competitors is its investment in local production, particularly in developing countries, where political and economic instability create issues with imports and currency exchange. Hayat continues to invest in local production sites where it sees fit, with additional investments only once the company has established its brands and become familiar with local consumers.
Hayat has been successful in establishing wide distribution networks,reaching both urban and rural areas. As much of the unmet potential exists in rural areas, this has had a major impact on fuelling growth, especially while competitors have struggled to keep products in stock.
Though Hayat usually enters a market with minimal expenditure on advertising and instead focuses on pricing strategies, the company does invest heavily in marketing once the brand has been established, particularly when competition heats up. As competitive pressures increase, Hayat may be forced to continue increasing its marketing expenditure in certain markets.
