Huggies vs Pampers

Huggies and Pampers both are some of the most famous brands in the market. Both of them sell baby diapers and the price point is also the same. So, it is normal to have some confusion between these two brands but they are not the same and have their differences.

πŸ”· Sizing and Beginning

The first difference is the availability in a different size. Pampers offers one more sizing option which is a bit larger. Unfortunately, Huggies does not offer that one extra size than Pampers. Huggies started their journey in 1978 on the other hand Pampers started that journey in 1961.

πŸ”· Parent Company

Are Pampers and Huggies from the same Companies? No, Huggies and Pampers have different parent companies. As we said before, the manufacturing and the distribution rights of Huggies are in the hands of Kimberly-Clark whereas Pampers is offered by the Procter & Gamble brand.

πŸ”· Product Lineup

Some of the notable Huggies product lineups are Little Snugglers Diapers, Little Movers, Snug & Dry Diapers, Overnites Diapers, Pure and Natural Diapers, and Pull-Ups. They also sell baby wipes.

On the other hand, Pampers offers products like Swaddlers, Baby Dry, Cruisers, Underjams, Easy Ups, Splashers. They also sell baby wipes and disposable bibs called Bibsters.

πŸ”· Market Share

Procter & Gamble started selling pampers in 1960 and had somewhat of a monopoly in the market until 1968. On the other hand, Huggies started their business in 1968. Initially, Huggies had the upper hand for a long time in the market.

Unfortunately, Huggies lost their superiority in the market in 2012, and pampers took over. Currently, Pampers share is about 33% and Kimbley-Clark with Huggies Share has around 22% in the market.   

πŸ”· Quality

Huggies goes for a more artificial look on the outside. You will find a more plastic-like feel on the outside. A sticky strip is used as a tightening mechanism. 

Pampers have a softer and fabric-type feel on the outside. They also use strips as a tightening feature. Some people may prefer Pampers over Huggies in this regard.
