The market share:

The industry of household cleaners is characterized by the mere presence of a limited number of players and manufacturers, hindering consequentially the potential intervention of newcomers to the market and making it prone to low penetration rates. This excessive monopolization of the market in India threatens the principle of free competition and concurrence and promotes certain stagnation in the nature and quality of the products displayed. This limitedness of players in the household cleaners’ market makes it an oligopolistic oriented market, where the leading business establishments make their own market structure and control the fluctuating of the prices.
The Indian household cleaners market is controlled by these major players, that is to say:

Hindustan Unilever pvt. Ltd., Reckitt Benckiser India, Proctor & Gamble, Diversey India Pvt. Ltd., Schevaran Laboratories Pvt. Ltd., Satol Chemicals, Ecolab India, Buzil Rossari Pvt. Ltd., Haylide Chemicals Pvt. Ltd., Altret Industries Pvt. Ltd., S.C. Johnson Products Pvt. Ltd. Jyothy Laboratories Ltd., among others.

Market segmentation:
The study of the household cleaners’ market segmentation is carried out on multiple levels, aiming to examine thoroughly the structure and size of each subcategory of this market. We can distinguish between a segmentation based on the product type that comprises: surface cleaners, specialty cleaners, and bleaches. A second segmentation is based on the use and application and that discerns between bathroom cleaners, kitchen cleaners, floor cleaners, and fabric care. The last segmentation type is focused on the distribution channels among which are supermarkets/hypermarkets, convenience stores, and online stores. After examining each of these subcategories, it avails that the fastest-growing segment in terms of revenue is the dishwashing market with major brands like Vim, Exo, and Pril. As the floor cleaning market takes second place in India with brands such as Lizol, Domex, and Mr. Muscles.

On another note, the toilet cleaning market has known a rapid growth and has displayed considerable revenue after a shift in the customers’ preferences who replaced their Phenyl and acid-based cleaners with the commercialized household cleaning products available on the market. Liquid soaps comprising hand washes and body washes have also known a drastic rise in revenues as the customers grew more aware of the importance of personal hygiene, along with the heavy and highly attractive commercialization of these products specifically.

In terms of the distribution channels, the household cleaners are largely sold in the modern retail stores such as hypermarkets and supermarkets. However, the small local and traditional convenience stores still remain hesitant on whether to put these products on their shelves mainly because of their relatively higher price and the fear of remaining unsold. Recently, these worries seem to get less and less recurrent as customers’ demand on these products is increasing drastically, which makes them largely available in all selling points in India. The third channel that was unpopular and unimaginable a few years back is suddenly increasing in sales and importance, it is that of online stores, that seems to be the ongoing trend with the extreme and intense new wave of technology.

Market forecast: The prospectus.
The market of household cleaners in India is expected to thrive significantly in the coming years with a noticeable increase in the numbers of players on the market, which will accentuate the competition between the existing ones and the newcomers allowing for a new age of products to emerge into the market and with a wholly different vision and more specific niches to target.

The future of the household cleaning chemicals is subjected to various market trends and dynamics, namely the rising use of bio-friendly cleaners, the less water consuming approach undertaken by many cleaning chemicals, the new vision of multifunctional cleaners that incorporate several aspects (skincare and germicidal characteristics), along with the current fervent preoccupation with the manufacturing of household cleaners with disinfecting, antibacterial, and virucidal properties (dirt and insect repellent for fabric care products).

Moreover, due to its impressive growth prospects, the segment of household cleaning chemicals in India received funding from the Foreign Direct Investment (USD 8.8 billion) in the period 2010-2013 and remains to be a very promising sector worth investing in without the least doubt in its profitability in the long-term.
