Tissue and hygiene paper consumption is highly linked to a country’s human development and health standards. 73% of the world population have access to improved sanitation facilities. The better the access to improved sanitation facilities and the better the drinking water supply, the higher the consumption of tissue and hygiene paper. Accordingly, high-income countries rank at the top of the list and countries with low income and low health standards have the lowest share. The worldwide increase in access to and improvement of sanitation facilities, human development, and healthcare directly affect tissue and hygiene paper sales and corresponding forecasts. Particularly strong growth is expected in middle-income countries as the infrastructure is being further expanded.
The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on consumer spending on tissue and hygiene paper products, which include toilet paper, paper tissues, household paper, feminine hygiene products, baby diapers, face masks, and incontinence products that are produced for private end consumers. Retail sales through both offline and online sales channels are included.
