Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
Sanitary protection continued to suffer from a low uptake in Kenya at the end of the review period, with this not having serious repercussions for many Kenyan girls and women. In 2013, according to Proctor & Gamble, only 5.2 million women aged 10-45-years-old in Kenya used sanitary protection out of a total of 30 million. The company blames this on a lack of education about sanitary protection and a lack of awareness of affordable products, although widespread poverty inevitably contributes to this situation. Instead, many women and girls use toilet paper or clothing in lieu of sanitary protection. This typically results in schoolgirls staying at home during menstruation and thus missing out on a full education, while also hindering their future employment prospects.

Competitive Landscape

Proctor & Gamble continued to be the dominant player in sanitary protection at the end of the review period. The company benefits from strong consumer trust in its Always brand, which also offers a wide range of products and affordable prices, thus appealing to a wide range of income groups. The company also benefits from strong marketing support, particularly targeting schoolgirls and young adults as it seeks to build consumer loyalty from a young age. The company also benefited from its campaigns offering free sanitary protection to schoolgirls as part of its Always Keeping Girls in School programme, which continued in 2013.

Industry Prospects

The strong media coverage of free sanitary protection programmes for schoolgirls is expected to continue at the start of the forecast period, with leading players being keen to invest in such initiatives in order to achieve positive publicity and also to encourage brand loyalty from a young age. These campaigns and the resultant publicity are meanwhile likely to significantly broaden the usage of sanitary protection across Kenya. Women are likely to increasingly regard sanitary protection as an essential product, rather than viewing it as a higher-priced alternative to tissue or cloth.
