Toilet Tissue

In 589 AD, the first documented account of the use of toilet paper was recorded in early medieval China. However, the product did not become commercialized in the United States until the 19th century when a man named Joseph Gayetty introduced Gayetty's Medicated Paper; a patent for roll-based dispensers was introduced a couple years later by Seth Wheeler.

In the United States today, the toilet paper industry is dominated by three manufacturers: Georgia-Pacific, Procter & Gamble and Kimberly Clark, with the latter generating approximately 2.14 billion U.S. dollars worth of sales in 2016. These three manufacturers made up almost 80 percent of the U.S. toilet paper market.

Procter & Gamble is one of the biggest consumer goods companies in the world. In 2016, the company generated net sales worth about 65.3 billion U.S. dollars and is the leading manufacturer in a vast majority of consumer goods product categories.
