PROSPECTS
Public debate resurfaces as to whether sanitary protection products should be free in Denmark

The debate about whether women in Denmark should get free (or subsidised) sanitary protection products peaked back in 2016. At that time, however, no changes to legislation were made.

Natural lifestyle trend makes its mark on sanitary protection

Currently, there are several trends shaping the buying habits of Danish consumers. One of the strongest is the natural lifestyle trend, whereby consumers are looking for products with as few chemicals as possible, more natural ingredients and greater transparency.

Changing perceptions of alternative products

Alternative products such as menstrual cups are growing in popularity in Denmark as a result of the natural lifestyle trend, being seen as better for the environment. Indeed, one Danish distributor has said that one cup is equal to the use of 3,000 tampons, pantyliners or towels, which also means that it is a cheaper alternative.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Global players continue to lead sales

Essity and Procter & Gamble Danmark maintained their leading positions in sanitary protection in 2018. Procter & Gamble and its Always brand benefit from strong consumer trust and a well-developed distribution network.

Natural lifestyle trend provides a platform for the future development of organic brands

New local players are benefiting from the rise of more natural lifestyles, building the image of their brands around this trend. GingerOrganic, for instance, markets its products by highlighting the fact that they are 100% organic and carry various certifications, such as Ecocert, Gots, Svanen and AllergyCertified.

Private label continues to gain share

Consumer perception of the quality of private label sanitary protection in Denmark has continued to increase, enabling it to further grow its share of sales. Some private label lines, but particularly Änglamark from Coop, have an organic/natural lifestyle positioning, while also carrying the Asthma Allergy Nordic label.
