Title: Todays Challenge: Raw Material Cost Increase and Margin Pressure in Detergents and Cleaners Formulations
Abstract: FRAMES is a Formulation Intelligence Platform that provides direct access to on-shelf detergent formulations and costs. A unique functionality is the platforms’ ability to integrate all available public information and assign levels & costs, based on long-term expertise in product development and supply chain. FRAMES’ smart-design database is uniquely positioned to support competitor analyses, innovations and optimize product cost-performance at any point in time. The impact of last year’s raw material cost increase is discussed on the basis of benchmarks and overview of raw material-formulation costs in different home care categories. Sensitivity analyses of formulation costs and impact on margins are presented, together with market examples on how companies cope with increased margin pressure.
