Kimberly-Clark experienced volatile demand for certain products as customers adjust to the changing climate. Demand rose in the Consumer Tissue and Personal Care business areas across all key markets beginning in Q1 2020, notably in March, as consumers raised home inventory levels in response to COVID-19. Following the rise, there was a period of demand softening as consumers used up existing house inventories and demand reverted to more typical levels. While demand for their consumer tissue goods was high throughout 2020, it decreased in Q1 2021 due to the usage of home stockpiles. Volume decreases in the K-C Professional business occurred throughout 2020 and Q1 2021, suggesting a decrease in away from home demand.
