Market Challenges

  • The wet tissue and wipe market is facing challenges due to growing environmental concerns. Non-biodegradable wipes and tissues, made with plastics and petrochemical-based polymers, are toxic if not treated properly and contribute to sewer pipeline blockages. Despite being labeled as flushable, these tissues can cause clogs and harm sewage systems.
  • Governments are responding with regulations, such as the European Disposables and Non-wovens Association’s guidelines for decomposition evaluation. Manufacturers who do not follow these guidelines must label their products as non-flushable. These factors are expected to restrict sales and negatively impact the market’s growth.
  • The Wet Tissue and Wipes market face several challenges. Compostables and biodegradables are becoming increasingly popular due to environmental concerns. However, ensuring the effectiveness and affordability of these alternatives is a challenge. Another challenge is the increasing demand for larger sizes and stronger wipes.
  • Additionally, the cost of raw materials and logistics can impact profitability. Furthermore, ensuring consumer safety and hygiene standards is crucial. Lastly, regulations and certifications add complexity to the supply chain. Balancing sustainability, affordability, and consumer demand requires strategic planning and innovation.
