Soaps and Detergents: A Global Outlook
San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – The economic crisis severely dented the prospects of several major industries. However, the negative impact of the crisis on soaps and detergents industry appeared to be more or less mediocre. The global soaps and detergents industry witnessed a marginal drop in demand, which was predominantly witnessed in institutional and industrial sectors. Demand from domestic market that constitutes the key revenue generator for the industry, remained intact. Recovering from the economic crisis, the industry is all set to unleash new growth avenues, as manufacturers renew focus on producing eco-friendly and efficient products to meet consumer demand. In the near term, natural, biodegradable and new products suiting customer preferences are forecast to register robust growth patterns.
The United Sates comprises the leading market for soaps and detergents and is closely trailed by the UK. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market. With developed countries exhibiting saturated growth, soaps and laundry product manufacturers are shifting focus to developing countries, where rapid urbanization and increasing disposable incomes are creating new demand for laundry products. The most prominent among the developing countries include India and China. The embryonic state of the industry and absence of technologically advanced products such as liquid detergents and tablets in several developing regions translate into plenteous opportunities for market growth. Additionally, ‘Going Green' has become an overriding trend catching up in the market. The market is witnessing a rise in demand for nature-based products in recent times. Several soap and detergent companies are focusing on green products, the demand for which remained consistent even during global economic crisis.
