India Soap Market Growth Factors
The market scenario of soaps in the Indian context has seen tremendous growth. Many factors that have accelerated the growth of India’s soap market are considered to continue to push the growth of the market over the upcoming years. Currently, 700 companies are active in the soap industry in India. The soap market capitalisation is estimated to be 17 billion US dollars. The main contributor to the product market is the increase in per capita income as well as a better standard of living in urban areas. Another key driver that is uplifting the product market in India is the rampant awareness about the importance of health and hygiene. Soaps are used to clean the dead skin cells and contaminants. But now in addition to cleansing new areas are being tapped by manufacturing soaps to augment better skincare as value addition to personal well being. As expendable income is rising, people are able to afford soap products, especially speciality soaps that provide different results.
Increase in the funding of research and development of higher quality and speciality soaps will uplift the product market further over the next years. In effect, soaps with cooling agents and herbal constituents are opening more avenues for greater demand. There has been a shift of people towards herbal soap due to their therapeutic value. Further expansion in soap and detergent industry consisting of laundry and toilet soaps, synthetic detergents in the form of liquid, powder, and bar lead to a great variety of selling points. Technologically, more availability of the internet and operation of e-commerce operators is also a driving force for market growth.
Due to the recent impact of COVID-19, a shift has been observed to instant sanitizers. But it also leads to even greater awareness about the importance of cleansing. Other possible threats include the presence of chemicals and toxic ingredients in soaps which discourages consumers from using the product. Yet, the soap market in India is expected to see steady growth over the course of the next few years because of greater penetration possibility into rural India.
