Even though Procter & Gamble retains the lead in the Germany nappies market in 2012, with a share of 59% in terms of retail value, it faces strong and growing competition. The German customer base of nappies/diapers/pants is polarised into those who prefer a big named brand with multinational experience and the necessary means for successful research and development and those, who are absolutely convinced in the quality and reputation of private label products, creating a strong loyalty to them.

Compared with the review period CAGR, the performance in 2012, with a growth of 1%, is above average in current value terms. Yearly growth rates within the review period were rather small, usually being between zero and 1%, with an exception



in 2007 where a growth rate of 1% was reached as well. The only negative growth, also between zero and 1% in current value terms, was experienced in 2010. These developments relate to Germany´s demographic development, with 2007 having an increased birth-rate and 2010 facing a significant decline.

Over the forecast period to 2017, retail value sales of nappies/diapers/pants in Germany are expected to face a negligible decline in constant value terms, to an expected value sales amount of €691 million in 2017; €3 million lower than in 2012. The effects of low birth rates paired with a decreasing population in Germany all together will be the main challenges for the market, especially since no improvements are expected.
