Colgate-Palmolive which leads the oral care market, seems focused on market share expansion, even if it means lower prices and contracted margins. The company’s oral care market share grew from 25{845d44a2f09c0018d802e19e78941a85dc2180e4ed7410cee0b34e8cb134ecea} in 2010 to 26{845d44a2f09c0018d802e19e78941a85dc2180e4ed7410cee0b34e8cb134ecea} in 2011, as it toned down its plans of raising prices in a high cost environment.
