The global household cleaning products market size was USD 235.76 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 247.94 billion in 2022 to USD 334.16 billion in 2029 at a CAGR of 4.4% during the 2022-2029 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with household cleaning products witnessing a positive demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited an incline of 6.5% in 2021. The sudden incline in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Leading companies are joining the global household cleaning goods market with new product launches, recognizing the growing demand for homecare products fueled by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. For example, Godrej Consumer Products Limited launched its 'ProClean' line of surface cleansers and disinfectants in December 2020. To fulfil the increased demand for home hygiene products, the company introduced bathroom, toilet, and floor cleaners. To boost product visibility, these products are also made available to customers via community e-commerce websites.


Emergence of COVID-19 Pandemic to Boost Market Growth

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a huge impact on the household cleaning products market. The second wave of the pandemic, which is still ongoing, increased the demand for cleaning goods in 2021. COVID-19 had a positive impact on the market as people have become more concerned of hygienic living and housekeeping. Attributed to the unexpected surge in demand for household cleaning goods, there was a supply deficit, and many manufacturers raised their production facilities to fulfil consumer demand. In 2020, top manufacturers, such as Reckitt Benckiser, P&G, and Henkel, for example, saw a surge in demand for disinfection goods. To accommodate the considerable rise in demand, these companies increased their output and are now operating at full capacity. Many companies have come forward to show their support for communities all over the world. As the pandemic will continue to be a part of our lives at least until 2022, the market for household cleaning products is predicted to increase at a healthy rate.

Full Disclosure of Ingredients on the Labels to Influence Market Growth

There is a growing trend of providing information on the product's constituents. After the Consumer Product Ingredient Communication Initiative was formed in 2010, companies began to share information about the contents in products, including air care, floor cleaners, and household care products. Buyers want to know what chemicals are in cleaning products and how they can be trusted. They want to know about the transparency of end products and supply networks in general. Many consumers compare product ingredients and the risks associated with specific components. As word-of-mouth advertising is a significant component of household cleaning product marketing, companies are displaying product ingredients to boost consumer confidence.


Increasing Demand for Natural Products is Boosting Growth of the Market

Chemicals have become ingrained in our culture, and we are all influenced by them. As a result, many people are gravitating toward green and natural goods, which are both eco-friendly and soft on the skin and the environment. Natural and green products are in high demand all around the world these days, and the desire for green cleaning products has fueled the industry's growth. The growing demand for green and natural products is mostly due to rising environmental concerns. People are ready to spend extra for natural and organic products to save the environment, and this has shifted the market dramatically.

It is also expected that the use of harsh chemical products would decrease in the near future as people are willing to spend not only hours cleaning their houses but also pay more for the right product, which, in turn, will drive the market.


Lack of Customer Retention & Product Differentiation to Limit Market Growth

Product preferences differ from person to person and are influenced by psychographic, demographic, and behavioral factors. Consumer behavior is mostly impacted by lifestyle standards and awareness. Consumer loyalty and product distinctiveness are difficult to maintain in today's market for household cleaning products. Consumers are frequently drawn to innovative items, and as a result, they are unable to remain loyal to a single product or brand. Small & medium-sized manufacturers are finding it increasingly challenging to keep up with changing trends due to changing consumer preferences. As a result, these issues together limit market expansion.

High Demand to Promote Growth of the Laundry Detergent Segment

On the basis of product type, the household cleaning products market is segmented into surface cleaners, laundry detergents, toilet cleaners, dishwashing products, and others.

The laundry detergents segment has the highest market share in the world since clean clothes are regarded hygienic, and clothes must be washed frequently. Detergents help eliminate grime and stain marks that are difficult to remove with water. It lifts dirt and stains from the fabric, breaks them up, and washes them away. Laundry bars are also used to wash garments by hand in most regions of the world since they are efficient, affordable, and compact. In addition, product innovation is producing an optimistic prognosis for this segment's growth in the coming years.

For example, Unilever Group revealed that by the end of 2030, it will eliminate fossil fuel ingredients from cleaning products. Additionally, the firm, in collaboration with LanzaTech and India Glycol, launched the world's first laundry capsule created from industrial carbon emissions in April 2021.

During the forecast period, the surface cleansers segment is expected to increase at the fastest rate of 4.9%, followed by dishwashing products. These segments' expansion in the global household cleaning products market is being driven by a unique combination of durability and performance. The toilet cleansers segment is predicted to rise significantly over the forecast period due to the advent of improved toilet cleaners that provide many benefits such as cleanliness, germ killing, and odor elimination.

Attributed to the Asia Pacific region's massive population and rising disposable incomes, it has the largest share of the global household cleaning products market. In 2021, the Asia Pacific market was valued at USD 82.98 billion. As the region is highly inhabited, household cleaning goods are in high demand. China is the largest producer in Asia Pacific, followed by Japan and India. Consumers in the region are increasingly turning to natural cleaning products as a result of environmental concerns linked with the usage of toxic chemicals. As a result, local manufacturers are introducing bio-friendly products to capitalize on emerging market growth opportunities. Proklean Technologies, for instance, offered green floor cleaners and liquid detergents in the Indian market in September 2020.   

Due to the existence of major manufacturers of cleaning products in the region, North America owns a significant portion of the industry. In North America, rising environmental concerns have spurred the demand for efficient and safe homecare goods. The U.S. is the world's largest consumer due to its vast population. Household cleaning products have a well-established market in Europe, which is expected to grow at a slightly slower pace than in other regions. Many corporations, on the other hand, are investing in R&D to produce innovative and environment-friendly household cleaning products to lessen their environmental footprints. In addition, due to tight European legislation, manufacturers must maintain a high level of product quality. As a result, there is healthier rivalry, which fuels the household cleaning products market growth. 

In the coming years, the Middle East & Africa region is predicted to be a promising region. Due to the obvious rapid urbanization and population growth in this region, the demand for cleaning agents is expanding. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD) research on Africa's Urbanization Dynamics 2020, by 2050, the region is projected to have the fastest urban growth rate.
