Special offer: now 20% off original price of $3,100
Toothpaste, whiteners, sugarless gum, mouthwash, manual or electric toothbrushes, floss, and other oral care items retailed at $9.1 billion in 2008 — and $10.9 billion is possible by 2014.
Marketers have proven that this mature industry can still show growth. Americans already brush their teeth, and most gargle or pop breath mints, and yet pure innovation and outside-the-box positionings have sparked one profitable oral care fad after another. However, in 2009, sales of the once wildly popular $5 battery-operated toothbrush, of dissolvable breath strips, and of many dedicated whiteners, have long since faded.
What are the oral care market’s new dollar-drivers? What are the latest flashy strategies to lift brands out of the funk of market maturity? And will consumer oral care thrive or nosedive during these economic hard times? ...Packaged Facts’ new edition of The U.S. Market for Oral Care Products, 7th Edition is a manual for success — featured are detailed past and future sales estimates, IRI brand share data, extensive Simmons demographic profiles, and our usual insightful analysis. Also, the gameplans of Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, and others are examined in depth.
