All clean: High disposable income will push consumers toward high-cost, brand-name soaps
Soap & Cleaning Compound Manufacturing in the US
During the past five years, the Soap and Cleaning Compound Manufacturing industry contended with steep competition from foreign-based soap manufacturers. Foreign-based manufacturers have inundated the market with low-cost soap products, pressuring demand for domestically manufactured products. In the coming years, as per capita disposable income rises, many consumers will slowly shift to relatively high-cost, brand-name soaps and cleaning products. Additionally, downstream markets, such as restaurants, will require more cleaning products to comply with regulations and maintain cleanliness in line with the rise in consumer foot traffic.
This industry produces substances that loosen and remove soil from a surface for personal hygiene, sanitization or cleaning clothes, linens and furnishings. The industry does not include manufacturers of synthetic glycerin, industrial bleaches or shampoos.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
