Trends in the Wipes Market and Among Consumers

Consumer Wipes: Look at the Post-COVID World

With surge in COVID-driven demand in 2020, retail sales of consumer wipes in surface and personal care generated estimated over USD16 billion, far ahead of the pre-COVID projections and expectations. However, as the industry is looking beyond 2020 and settles into long-term planning, it is important to assess what was a temporary shift, what is here to stay, and what will re-bound again with the new strengths once the impact of COVID-driven demand subsides.

Euromonitor presentation will reveal:

1)     Updated forecast for consumer wipes globally, contrasting pre-COVID and post-COVID expectations; the presentation will contrast expectations for developing and developed regions;

2)     Latest innovation trends across wipes categories, with focus on value-added premium products and new products positioned in natural segment;

3)     Retail channel dynamic, including shifts and risks of digital brand engagements.
