Manufacture of Soap, Cleaning and Sanitising Products, Wax and Polishes


Soap and hygiene solutions are key to containing the spread of coronavirus, and producers of these products are playing an essential role in the pandemic response. Role players say that demand for cleaning products, sanitising agents and disinfectants soared prior to the start of lockdown in March, with bleach retail sales surging. While some suppliers of industrial cleaning and sanitising products have reported subdued sales, others say that a flurry of deep-cleaning, disinfection and maintenance work undertaken during industry downtime has buoyed demand.


Key Trends


Sales volumes of soap and hand sanitisers, surface cleaners, bleach and other disinfectants have increased sharply since the outbreak of the pandemic. Demand for buying in bulk has strengthened, and consumers are increasingly switching to multi-purpose products. Environmentally-friendly biological products and packaging have been developed, and there is greater use of natural ingredients. In laundry care, consumers are increasingly switching from products in powder and bar form to more concentrated products in liquid, liquid tablet or pod form.


Changing Environment


The shift from chemicals to sustainable biological products is largely being driven by concerns relating to the toxicity of various chemicals and the irresponsible sourcing of raw ingredients, notably palm oil. Although still small, the market for eco-friendly cleaning products is growing steadily. With the outbreak of the pandemic, demand for most categories of cleaning and sanitising products has increased substantially and manufacturers ramped up production of products such as bleach, soap and other personal and household hygiene products.
