According to Tabnak quoting Tasnim, after a 40% increase in the price of some detergents and hygienic products due to the high price of the dollar and the doubling of the price of the NIMA exchange rate, this time baby diapers have become scarce in the market!
Jamshid Forouzeh, the secretary of the Detergent Industries Association, says, "The prices of various washing powders, dishwashing detergents and soaps have increased by 40% compared to the last 10 days, and the rest of the detergents have increased by up to 30%.
He emphasized that the price increase was due to the increase in the price of the dollar, the doubling of NIMA exchange rate and the subsequent increase in the price of raw materials and stated, "The members of the Association was asking for 65 to 70 percent increase, but they agreed with 40 percent increase in the price."
How serious is the shortage of diapers?
A member of the board of directors of the Cellulose Association says, "Baby diaper raw materials such as pulp are imported from the United States, Canada and Brazil, and now with the tightening of sanctions, baby diaper raw materials are not imported, which has made this product scarce in the market."
Nima Basiri said, "One of the raw materials for baby diapers is the layers that are used in masks. It is certain that in corona conditions, the production of masks is a priority over the production of diapers. Therefore, the production capacity of diapers has decreased."
*This reduction in production has now manifested itself in two ways in the market, one is the non-existence of this product and the other is its high price.
* Some pharmacies and online shopping sites do not have some models and sizes of baby diapers, and in some cases the price of some types of diapers has reached half a million tomans.
* That is, in some brands, the price of four packs of diapers (including four packs of size three) is about 530 thousand tomans.
* It is said that the price of baby diapers has reached 500 thousand tomans, this issue is related to some special brands, but there are diapers with good brands in the market that are offered to the market.
* He also cited brokerage as another factor in increasing the price of diapers and said, "In order to supply the raw materials for diapers, they are dealt several times until they finally reach the main manufacturers which is effective in raising their prices."
