SWOT Analysis

Strengths

P & G is a master at building brands (over 300 globally); with competitive advantages in distribution and economies of scale (efficiency) in reaching retailers, and understanding consumer needs. No one invests more in market research. Their diversified portfolio of disposable consumer products is unmatched, including 21 brands with 1 billion or more in annual sales. They are a global leader in innovation.

Weaknesses

Defending so many brands at one time is difficult. Fake products, generics, and competition from rivals means boosting brands and maintaining market share is expensive. P&G has to spend billions of dollars (approx. 9 billion annually) in advertising to build and maintain their brands.

Opportunities

Procter & Gamble makes products that can be used and disposed of anywhere in the world. World-wide increased penetration has almost no limits.

PG is making a concerted effort to renew growth and revitalize its profitability. This effort includes discarding over 100 brands that were unprofitable or dragging down profit margins.

Threats

Deflationary pressures brought about by intense competition and more recently a pandemic. There are always competitors who provide similar products, both branded and unbranded, that can eat into market share.
