Description

“Children’s wipes (targeted at 3-9-year-olds) are worth only 5% of the total wipes market. Parents are finding more reasons to use wipes on older children, such as on-the-go clean-ups after playtime and eating, and frequency of use is growing the fastest amongst these groups. Manufacturers could introducing a range positioned as ‘school wipes’, which are ideal for cleaning hands before eating lunch or snacks or for general cleaning after playing or art lessons”.

– Ricky Lakhani, Personal Care Analyst
