Scope and Method


This report provides total US demand for wipes in units and in US dollars at the
manufacturers level. Demand in US dollars is segmented by product in terms of:

wet wipes
dry wipes.

Total demand in US dollars is also segmented by market in terms of:

consumer
industrial.

Total demand and the various segments are sized at five-year intervals for historical
years 2006 and 2011 with a forecast to 2016. Forecasts emanate from the identification
and analysis of pertinent statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as
well as their expected progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in
quantities between reported years of a given total or segment are typically provided in
terms of five-year compound annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity,
forecasts are generally stated in smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast
year, such as demand is projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2016. The result of
any particular year over that period, however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a
smoothed, long-term trend, as historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
