Africa Tissue Paper Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the growing awareness regarding personal care and sanitation across Africa. Rapid urbanization and the improving living standards of individuals are also fueling the market growth. Besides this, governmental and non-governmental agencies across Africa are taking initiatives to introduce sanitation programs for creating awareness regarding health and hygiene among people. This has led to a significant rise in the adoption of tissue papers across the country. Tissue papers are also increasingly recommended by healthcare and medical workers instead of clothes as they can be easily disposed of and are less prone to transmit infections. In addition, manufacturers are producing different colored tissue paper products that are eco-friendly, recyclable, and contain sustainably-sourced fibers, thus creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, advancements in tissue manufacturing technology and efficient use of raw materials that improve the design of tissue products are also positively escalating the demand for tissue papers in the region.
