Executive Summary

Mar 2019
PROSPECTS
Changing demographic trends set to support retail volume growth

The female population aged 12-54 was relatively stable in 2018, limiting the number of new users of sanitary protection and therefore organic retail volume growth, with companies therefore focusing on retaining existing loyal customers.

Changing role of women in society and work

Women’s role in society is changing in Kazakhstan, with an increasing number of females joining the working population. With improved standards of living, urbanisation and modernisation, more women are becoming financially independent of men.

Growing demand for convenience and comfort

Given the modern and active lifestyles of the majority of Kazakhstani women, there is a growing trend towards sanitary protection which is designed to provide convenience and comfort. For instance, the Secrets Lan brand manufactured by Zhongshan-Kang-Yi-Ran Sanitary Products Co introduced improved packaging with tamper protection in 2018.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Sanitary protection led by multinational brands

Well-known international brands such as Always Ultra, Naturella and Kotex continued to lead sanitary protection in 2018. These brands have had a long-standing presence in the country, are supported by strong marketing campaigns, and benefit from high levels of brand recognition and the conservative shopping behaviours of Kazakhstanis.

Ongoing product launches

The media have been active in increasing consumer awareness of health and product safety, while, for their part, manufacturers of sanitary protection offered new product launches and innovations for existing brands featuring eco, natural and environmentally friendly product positioning. The Bella brand for instance, introduced standard towels with wings with a green positioning and featuring a silk-like, breathable material in 2018.

Manufacturers could face competition from innovations in medicine

There are trends within the latest international and domestic innovations in medicine that may lead to women requiring lower quantities of sanitary protection products in the future. Alongside the improvement in healthcare in the country, there are a growing number of older people, including women in the menopause, who do not need sanitary protection.
