$KMB said in Russia, it saw strong category growth in diapers. The Huggies business was up double digits in volume and the company had higher selling prices. In Brazil, $KMB has seen category volume declines in low single digits over the last few quarters. In 3Q16 and 4Q16, in Argentina, $KMB saw double digit declines in category diaper volume.

$KMB {{ '2017-01-24T16:00:01+0000' | timeago}} • Webcast

$KMB stated that Latin America economic recovery would be a key driver for category growth. $KMB has big businesses in Brazil and Argentina and a recovery there could solve a lot of profit growth issues. In places like China and Russia, $KMB has strong category volume growth and it also sees penetration opportunities in many markets worldwide.

$KMB {{ '2017-01-24T15:50:13+0000' | timeago}} • Webcast

$KMB said growth rates in many categories have slowed and it is expecting category growth rates of roughly 2%. In the current competitive environment, it is tough to get price increases. In markets like Brazil, where categories are going backwards 3-4% in volume, by taking less price up, $KMB can generate short-term category value increases.

$KMB {{ '2017-01-24T15:36:07+0000' | timeago}} • Webcast

$KMB said it will have some carryover price drag in places like China but it might get some additional positive price increases in markets like Brazil and Argentina. In markets like the UK, $KMB will try to take some small positive price increases but it does not expect this to drive 2017. There is limited opportunity for price increases.
