IMPACT OF COVID-19

The newly identified coronavirus causes COVID-19, an infectious disease. The spread of this virus is having an impact on global economic growth. The major effects of a pandemic are characterized as the pandemic's directly effects on human health. Secondary effects, on the other hand, are those caused by the pandemic indirectly, either as a result of the population's anxiety or as a result of the actions made to contain and control it. The pandemic of COVID-19 is predicted to have a secondary impact on the market for feminine hygiene products. The effect will be different depending on the country and the capacity to reach through social welfare and health system. Customers who will be most impacted are expected to be the lowest and most sensitive to social and economic shocks.

The availability of feminine hygiene products has been significantly hampered by the COVID-19 outbreak. According to the survey, societal distance norms and restrictions forced over 82 percent of feminine hygiene product firms to halt operations in India. The supply of these products, particularly disposable and reusable sanitary pads, in rural areas has become reduced as production has become constrained. Because of the absence of public transportation and portability limitations forced by the lockdown, purchasers who could already get to items at neighborhood markets couldn't do as such. According to the Feminine and Infant Hygiene Association of India, China supplies around 10-20% of India's sanitary napkin requirements, and with much of the country's manufacturing shut down, there was a significant scarcity of products, leading to black marketing and fake price increases.

MARKET ESTIMATION

By Nature:

The disposable segment dominated the market. The disposable market includes feminine hygiene items like tampons sanitary napkins, and pantyliners. Full-sized sanitary napkins, Internal tampons, or towels for use during menstruation, and panty shields for protecting underwear from light menstrual flow, spotting, or vaginal discharge while maintaining hygiene are among the products available. This category is being driven by increased knowledge and use of disposable feminine hygiene items like sanitary pads, tampons, and pantyliners versus reusable feminine hygiene products.

By Product:

In 2021, sanitary pads held the largest market share in the global feminine hygiene products market. Increased awareness of personal hygiene is a fundamental element driving the global expansion of sanitary pads. Additionally, expanding interest for clean cushions has been energized by rising discretionary cashflow, an enormous number of limited time exercises utilized by advertisers, instruction, and government drives. During the projection year, the tampons and menstrual cup segment is predicted to increase at the fastest rate.

By Distribution:

In 2021, the supermarket and hypermarket sector held the largest proportion of the worldwide feminine hygiene products market. This is owing to the large discounts and incentives offered by stores to customers, which serve to promote sales of feminine hygiene products through supermarket and hypermarket stores around the world, contributing significantly to market growth. Meanwhile, in terms of value sales, the online marketplace segment is predicted to increase the fastest during the forecast period.

14. Conclusion

 

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

 

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
