Lifestyle Shifts & the World of Wipes: Meeting the Changing Consumer Demand to Secure Growth

In 2021, retail sales of disposable wipes reached nearly USD17 billion, and the trajectory forward remains positive. However, there are a number of challenges facing the industry ahead. While sustainability often is in focus, it is also important to address a number of fundamental consumer lifestyle changes that go beyond sustainability that can shape the performance of wipes long-term.

1)     The overall state of the industry and forecast for the coming years

2)     Consumer lifestyle changes, especially those related to personal and beauty care routines, based on Euromonitor International annual Voice of the Consumer surveys

3)     Challenges and opportunities for wipes innovation and brand engagement that reflect the changing consumer attitudes and behavior, with particular focus on personal care wipes.
