Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2014 -- The consumer base for sanitary protection continues to be negatively impacted by age demographic changes in Canada. In 2013, the number of Canadians aged 65 and above increased by 4% to reach 5.4 million, growing at a faster rate than an overall population growth of 1.2%. As a result, the target market for feminine hygiene products, the number of women aged 12-54 years, remained almost static. Subsequently, volume of sanitary protection sales saw only as modest increase of 1%. Value, on the other hand, saw a rise of a little over 1% in 2013, with pricing playing a role in supporting higher value growth compared to volume.
