Moreover, the adoption of soft material for cleansing sensitive skin of babies is expected to further fuel up the market growth for cotton pads. Thus, several players are expanding their manufacturing facilities for developing multi-purpose cotton pads. For instance, in 2019, Groupe Lemoine completed the construction of Lemoine Textisol Cotton Industry, a pads production unit in Cocentaina, Spain. Moreover, promotional activities undertaken by the key players for boosting the sale of their products have also contributed significantly to the rising popularity of cotton pads. For instance, in May 2018, Lohmann & Rauscher made its inaugural presentation of the ‘Hygiene in Practice’ movement at the annual conference of the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) held in Polland.
