Key Market Issues

Heavy frequency consumption accounts for approximately half of this consumption, indicating that suppliers targeting this market should aim to increase the consumption frequency of half their users.
- The Oral Hygiene market in Brazil is dominated by two categories, Toothbrushes & Replacement Heads and Toothpastes, which together constitute nearly 85% of the market by value.
- Dental floss consumption is relatively high in Brazil, with approximately half of users consuming at a Heavy frequency. However, consumption is higher among women than men, suggesting a strong potential for Dental Floss products targeted at women.
- Health and Better value for money are most important trends driving consumers choices of Oral Hygiene products in Brazil. This indicates that consumers see Oral Hygiene as an important category in which to control their spending, and one where value can be found without necessarily purchasing the most expensive products.
- The organized retail sector in Brazil is relatively fragmented, with the top three organized retailers distributing 62% of the Oral Hygiene market by volume. This share is expected to increase as the Brazilian organized retail market is expected to concentrate further.
- Private label penetration is low in the Oral Hygiene market in Brazil. One reason for this is the fragmented character of the Brazilian organized retail market, with private labels traditionally stronger in mature, concentrated organized retail markets.
