Market Analysis

The global bath soap market is being driven by the growing global population. The industry is especially being aided by the large millennial population who are a significant industry driver for the overall consumer sector. Millennials account for nearly 30% of the total population and form the largest demographic group, globally. India accounts for the largest millennial population who make up almost 34% of the country’s population and make a major part of the workforce. The expanding disposable incomes, especially in emerging countries like China and India, leading to changing lifestyles and higher standards of living, are aiding the bath soap industry.

With rising pollution levels, globally, the industry is finding further impetus for its growth as key players are launching new products aimed at protecting the skin from pollutants. The increasing hygiene consciousness among the consumers is further aiding the industry growth. Aggressive marketing campaigns by major manufacturers along with celebrity endorsements, are propelling the industry forward. However, the industry growth might be hampered by the rising availability of alternatives like shower gels and bath powders, among others.
