Global Market for Baby Care Today and Tomorrow

In December 2018, Cotton Incorporated with help from The Martec Group will be fielding a market research project on baby care with a concentration in diapers and wipes. Analysis and conclusions will be ready for public consumption in time for World of Wipes 2019. To get a sense of world market similarities and regional differences, consumers from eight countries will be surveyed: US, Mexico, Brazil, China, India, Germany, France and UK. This work will also incorporate economic and demographic data which will enable us to take a look at these markets today and project shifts 15 years into the future.
