Durex Says Profits Soaring Thanks To Booming Condom Demand From China

Condoms China

Booming sales of Durex condoms in China have seen its parent company SSL’s sales increase 4%, according to the Times of London.

Sales of Durex are growing 46% in China, and the growth is seen not as the result of increased use or need, but a desire for branding amongst Chinese consumers.

SSL has seen their profits rise 22% year-over-year, partially due to their Durex products having a 50% margin in China.
