World-Class Plant for Hard Surface Cleaners

As increasing numbers of adult consumers make more of an effort to keep their homes clean and fresh, sales of antibacterial and multipurpose hard surface cleaning products have steadily grown. Manufacturers have responded to the trend by offering an expanding range of high quality, cost-effective and antiseptic solutions to meet the demand for all-purpose and room-specific products that deliver excellent cleaning results, even in heavy duty applications.

Consumer-Driven Market

With most household cleaning tasks being done at least weekly, combined with a greater awareness of the health hazards associated with bacterial, fungi and other micro-organisms, the availability of, and demand for, biocidal and antibacterial cleaning products has increased significantly. Strong growth has been seen in family homes with children, wherein the use of domestic cleaning products is particularly high. And, with family numbers expected to rise during the next few years, further market growth is expected.

Regarding customer loyalty, consumers tend to repeat purchase known brands (often opting for spray-based delivery systems), as opposed to own-label products, but value for money is still a key consideration: as such, multipurpose cleaners have gained in popularity compared with task- or room-specific ones.
