Global Toothpaste Market to Reach US$12.6 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Global Toothpaste Market to Reach US$ 12.6 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (Vocus) October 19, 2010

The global toothpaste market is on the threshold of a new phase with the advent of new biotechnologies that help curb problems of sensitivity and enable the re-growth of teeth. Oral care is undergoing significant changes with innovative and fresh products motivating people to alter their oral hygiene habits. This in turn is triggering major shift in dynamics, with a growing preference for toothpaste, evinced by its substantial share of over 55% in the oral care market. Purchase of toothpaste is mainly driven by individual habits, inclination towards particular flavor and familiarity with the product. The toothpaste market is generally not price sensitive and brand loyalty plays an important role in majority of the customers. Currently nearly 97% of the population in developed countries uses at least one variety of toothpaste. This gives marketers virtually no space to expand the market with new users. Consequently, adding or increasing value to the product is the preferred alternative. Technological progress made in recent years altered the toothpaste segment into one that offers additional benefits such as fresher breath, healthier gums and whiter teeth, besides just fighting cavities.

The global market for personal care products (including oral care) had its own share of negative impact from the global economic crisis that surfaced in the last quarter of 2008. The extent of the slowdown varied, based on product offerings of individual companies. Those skewed towards functional products including toothpastes, toothbrushes and other personal care products, weathered the recession much better than firms with specialty skin care products. The already mature market for oral care in the US experienced a slight decline in value sales while the category of toothpaste witnessed about 1%-2% decline in sales in 2008 & 2009. With finances becoming scarce in the times of economic downturn, households restricted their purchases and became more value conscious, leading to decrease in sales. Nevertheless, demand for certain value added products such as power/electric toothbrushes exhibited a rise in 2009 as consumers showed more interest in products that eased their oral hygiene schedule, despite high prices.

Europe, garnering the single largest global share, dominates the Toothpaste market, as stated by the new market research report. Asia-Pacific and US follow the lead as the next largest markets for toothpaste worldwide. Increase in toothpaste sales in Europe can be ascribed to the domestic industry’s success in segmenting the market to meet individual consumer requirements. In addition, government intervention and growth in Central and Eastern European countries such as Russia and Spain has also spearheaded Europe’s leadership ahead of other countries such as the US and Japan. In terms of growth, Asia-Pacific propelled by regions including Australia, China and India, is forecast to expand at the overall highest compounded rate for the period 2007-2015. The Whitening segment captures the largest share of the global toothpaste market, trailed by the Regular and Tartar Control segments. With respect to fastest growing product segment, the Multi-benefit market is slated to take the lead through 2015.

The global toothpaste market comprises of several large and medium international and domestic players competing fiercely in the highly crowded and fragmented marketplace. There is a large presence of both branded and private label companies. Major players seek to position their products on the basis of value addition, functionality, price premium and to a certain extent packaging. Leading market participants include Church & Dwight, Colgate-Palmolive Company, Colgate-Palmolive Gmbh, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Limited, Gaba Holding AG, GlaxoSmithKline, Henkel AG & Co. KgaA, Johnson and Johnson, Procter & Gamble Company, Unilever N.V., and Hindustan Unilever Limited.

The report titled “Toothpaste: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of industry outlook, dynamics, market trends, product classification, recent industry activity, and profiles of market players worldwide. Analysis and overview is presented for major geographic markets such as US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Latin America. Market analytics are provided in terms of terms of dollar (value) for product segments including Regular, Anti-Caries, Whitening, Children’s, Desensitizing, Gum Protection, Multi-benefit, Tartar Control and Others. The study also presents historic data for an insight into market evolution over the period 2001 through 2006.

Trends in B2C green energy marketing – Market Research Report On Aarkstore Enterprise

Get 50% discount on this report (15 November 2010 TO 15 January 2011)


National and EU governments are now showing the level of commitment to the green energy sector that would encourage the development and marketing of green retail energy tariffs. There is scope for suppliers to boost their green energy sales by filling a growing gap in the marketplace as green regulations increasingly take hold.


*Ten years of renewable power generation data for the USA, Europe, East / Southeast Asia, Oceania and South Asia.

*A detailed review of European consumer perceptions about climate change and the way in which these could be leveraged by utilities.

*A review of some of the significant efforts in green tariff marketing: in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Australia.

*A review of some of the world’s most pioneering green programs and how best practices can help offset current market structure limitations.


Legislation and green awareness have spurred the generation of renewable power, led by EU Member States. Governments play a crucial role in making green energy economically viable, by stimulating the supply side, yet the green B2C market remains very much a marginal part of the power industry and has achieved a fraction of its true potential.

Green tariffs will remain peripheral where suppliers only market them at a premium. Residential customers need reassurances that they are actually buying real green power. Excessively pushing the environmental angle may breed customer cynicism and be counterproductive. Pioneers of green programs have learned to stay clear of these pitfalls.

Green energy is subject to the economic needs of stakeholders and their wider regulatory constraints, yet the growing issue of climate change now provides suppliers with opportunities in selling green energy. For now, utilities can overcome market structure limitations by deploying best practices that centre on price, product and promotion.

Reasons to Purchase

*Determine how utilities can lobby governments and amend their own internal product management operations to sustainably boost green B2C sales.

*Determine what consumers are willing to do to fight climate change, what products and services they are likely to take up and at what additional cost.

*Understand how and why certain providers and countries are fairing much better than others in their efforts to market green energy.

Economic Technologies? GEPR Report Calls for a $125 Billion Bond Issue, for Core Infrastructure Development in LDCs and Other Developing Countries

Houston (PRWEB) December 27, 2005

Economic Technologies’ Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Jude E. Uba, today, broadly released the company’s highly anticipated report urging a $ 125 billion capital facility for infrastructure solutions in developing countries.

As a consequence of the success of the G8 Summit, at Gleneagles, Scotland, this past June, and at the request of many government leaders, Economic Technologies accepted the committed to develop a comprehensive and far-reaching report on building core economic growth infrastructures in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America (including Mexico) and Eastern Europe. A principal component of that commitment is to present what it will take to deliver real results, on a quicker pace.

The final Report, which was presented at a teleconference this past week, recommends the issuance of a $ 125 billion Global Infrastructure Bond. Proceeds will be managed by a team of the world’s best-of-breed investment and equity management institutions, with overall management oversight by a five-member board, consisting of major bond subscribers, brilliant industry leaders and a representative of Economic Technologies. The fund will have a strong mandate to invest in advanced healthcare delivery, clean energy technologies, powerful financial and telecommunication systems and core infrastructure solutions (such as water filtration and purification systems, trade growth infrastructure and transportation systems) in the above regions, with clear exit strategy.

Clearly evident, following the presentation, are inclinations of strong, unprecedented and genuine interest from such countries as Abu Dhabi (UAE), Japan, China, Kuwait, Singapore and Saudi Arabia, with rich foreign reserves and assets, in addition to developed countries, to invest in or guarantee portions of such a massive bond issue. “This merges global aspirations with actual actions and pushes critically needed intervention away from suffocating global discussions into real actions on the ground, driving assurances that billions of people will enjoy real and immediate benefits,” said Jude E. Uba, Economic Technologies’ Chairman & CEO. “This puts expectant results on a far-reaching perspective, with truly unique and extraordinary benefits lurking for the global economy, more than any one single undertaking in history.”

According to the Report, this fund must not take any characteristics other than as a pure market play, with multiple return on investment windows for bond investors or guarantors, in the form of interest return and pay-outs as investments are divested (public listing), sold or as valuations escalate, as heavily expected. The Report anticipates a combined, long-term, return on investment to bond holders, to be in the vicinity of $ 20%. The fund’s overseeing board shall, also, be responsible for recruiting and training brilliant managers for these groundbreaking and massive investments and shall assure that collateral environments for investment success are made available by recipient countries. “I can hardly contain my excitement,” said Uba. “This will deliver, at a rapid pace, the benefits of directional technological breakthroughs and efficient infrastructure solutions, on a massive scale, to billions of people who, currently, live and operate on the fringes of the global economy.”

It is Economic Technologies’ unbent commitment to be a central transforming force in global economics. We are actively supportive of any real attempts at extending high quality of living to billions of people, worldwide.

MaximsNewsNetwork: 06 November 2010 — UNDP: United Nations, New York — The 20th anniversary edition of United Nations (UN) Development Programme’s (UNDP) annual Human Development Report (HDR), launched on Thursday November 4th in New York, shows extraordinary and often overlooked progress in health and education in most developing countries over the past four decades, as measured by the Report’s Human Development Index (HDI); UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon launched the report along with UNDP Administrator Helen Clark and Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, who helped devise the HDI for the first HDR in 1990. Ban said that there was a direct link between the Report and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Though these advances have not been consistent or universal, children in most countries today can look forward to much longer, healthier and more productive lives than those enjoyed by their grandparents. “Putting people first means tackling poverty, hunger, and disease; that approach is embodied in the MDGs. The HDR was designed to measure results. The MDGs set specific targets for a better world,” Ban Ki-Moon said. UNDP Administrator Helen Clark said that some of greatest gains were in the poorest countries. “This report shows that the gap in health and education outcomes between developed and developing countries has narrowed significantly over the past four decades even though the income divide with a few notable exceptions has worsened,” Clark added.
