Pantyliner sales account for 15% of global sanitary protection sales. While European markets lead in per capita consumption, usage in developing markets in LatAm, Asia Pacific, and MEA has room to grow.

Levels of usage in pantyliners differ across regions, as perceptions of the products also differ. While in some markets consumers are likely to use pantyliners on a daily basis, in other markets they are more often used in conjunction with tampons during the menstrual cycle.In addition to usage and perceptions of the products, product features also vary.
