In 2020, the pandemic in Hong Kong led to many job losses and a steep decline in disposable income. It also caused distribution to narrow for goods sold in brick-and-mortar stores, affecting product availability, while because of home seclusion and social distancing, consumers also visited stores less, which increased one-stop shopping and thus buying more items per visit.
Tena remained the biggest-selling retail adult incontinence brand in Hong Kong in 2020. It maintained its leadership through continuing to highlight the need for middle-aged and senior consumers to keep leading a life unhindered by incontinence.
Most products in 2020 were using special materials on the skin-touching layer to maintain a skin-friendly pH value of about 5.5.
While more and more attributes and qualities are emerging in adult incontinence, most consumers may indeed find distinguishing all these features a bit tough and confusing.
