Liquid Soap Market Trends

At present, the growing concerns about hygiene and cleanliness, along with the rising adoption of safety measures in homes, offices, and public places, represent one of the primary factors catalyzing the demand for liquid soap worldwide. Apart from this, with the introduction of touch-free hand hygiene dispensers, liquid soap is extensively used to maintain sanitation and sterility in hospitals and healthcare facilities. This can also be attributed to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and rising cases of infectious diseases like cold and chickenpox.

Furthermore, liquid soap is utilized for maintaining hygiene requirements in hotels, quick-service restaurants (QSRs), and food processing. Besides this, key players are offering multi-purpose liquid soap with an advanced cleaning formula that can be used for dish wash, kitchen utensils, vehicles, and furniture.

Moreover, they are focusing on developing organic variants that do not contain perfumes, gluten, dyes, allergens, animal by-products and harsh chemicals, such as phosphates, chlorine and petrochemicals. As these products are made from sustainable, plant-derived ingredients, which enhance their softening properties, reduce crumples, and prevent fading of color, rising environmental concerns among individuals are anticipated to provide a positive outlook for the market in the upcoming years.
