Nappies and other Disposable Textile and Paper Products in South Africa
Although the sale of nappies increased in 2020, growth was lower than in 2019 as the pandemic resulted in financial pressure on consumers. Declining birth rates and South Africa’s slowing population growth are also affecting the baby nappy segment, while an aging population and increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence has resulted in growing demand for adult nappies. The sanitary pads market registered relatively strong sales growth in 2020.
Disposable Protective Wear
The pandemic magnified South Africa’s dependence on imports for medical masks, gowns, aprons, and other textile-related outer protective clothing. More than 90% of these requirements were imported pre-pandemic, and the surge in global demand resulted in huge price increases. Since the start of the pandemic, local production has increased. There have been various incidents of corruption and questionable tenders and contracts awarded and the South African Bureau of Standards said it was aware that there were some products, including masks, that fraudulently used the SABS mark of approval.
Sales of wipes were bolstered by the outbreak of the virus, and industry experts believe that continued concerns over infection control will see the sector continue to grow. Baby wipes and facial cleaning wipes are traditionally the biggest categories, but demand for general purpose wipes grew due to new health and hygiene measures, particularly at major supermarkets.
