As consumers request further health ownership with confidence, products demonstrating stronger performance, security and mobility assurance, such as thin high-absorbency pads and pull-ups, will remain an important source of growth and remain an area of substantial innovation.

Therefore, businesses have responded with a sharpened focus on ingredients and designs that help deliver tangible health outcomes such as skin care, protection, flexibility, odour control and convenience.
As consumers demand more ownership of personal health and wellness and become more sophisticated digitally, businesses will further leverage digital applications and business models to better understand consumer needs, incentivise consumer engagement, and explore and experiment adjacent new growth horizons to solidify loyalty and spending.
