Latin America Feminine Hygiene Market: Drivers

The greatest factor that drives the Latin America feminine hygiene market today, and will drive for the coming years, is media outreach that creates an increase in awareness among all citizens regarding feminine hygiene products. The lifestyle of a growing number of women across the Latin America region is changing. It is becoming more and more demanding as women seek employment and jobs that were traditionally not undertaken by them. Familial lifestyles are changing, with dual-earning parents and children finding better education avenues. Because of this, more and more women are seeking feminine hygiene products that are not only comfortable and easy to use, but also adhere to the fashion trends of the region. As disposable income in Latin American families increases, customers are slowly shifting towards premium feminine hygiene products.

While their promotion efforts are largely for premium brands, the makers are also putting increased focus on products with low packaging costs to attract consumers from lower income brackets.
Chile is a country that shows a strong preference for sprays and internal cleansers, primarily out of growing hygiene concerns. Peru prefers sanitary pads the most, a scenario that is unlikely to change over the coming years.
