Executive Summary

Mar 2019
PROSPECTS
All purpose cleaning wipes continues to achieve growth

Convenience remained a strong driver for all purpose cleaning wipes, with strong retail value and volume growth in 2018. Consumers are increasingly looking for time-saving and convenient solutions for their cleaning tasks.

Environmental concerns to shape the future of personal wipes

Despite consumer demand for all purpose cleaning wipes and personal wipes, consumers became increasingly concerned about the impact of disposable wipes on the environment, with the Australian media continuing to report instances of sewage blockages due to flushable and non-flushable wipes. This remains a concern for environmentally conscious consumers.

Price competition in personal wipes to restrict retail value growth

As retailers in Australia continue to demand lower prices from their suppliers and increase their product offering through private label, retail value growth of personal wipes is expected to decelerate over the forecast period. Retailers such as Coles, Aldi Stores Supermarkets and Woolworths continue to implement aggressive discounting techniques which force brand manufacturers to lower their prices or rethink their price strategies.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Kimberly-Clark Australia continues to lead wipes

Kimberly-Clark Australia continued to lead wipes with its Huggies and Kleenex brands in 2018, benefiting from the popularity of general purpose personal wipes as well as its wide presence in retail channels in Australia. However, strong price competition in a number of wipes categories remained a challenge for the brand manufacturer.

Reckitt Benckiser (Australia) continues to lead home care wipes and floor cleaning systems

Brand manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser (Australia) maintained its lead in home care wipes and floor cleaning systems in 2018. Its Pine ‘O’ Cleen and Dettol brands continued to be found in multiple retailers across the country and were offered in various pack sizes with bundled options, enabling consumers to purchase larger quantities at lower prices.
