Global Soap Market Outlook

The global soap market would likely grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2023-2028. Washing hands with soap is recommended for good health and protection from various types of infections. Over the last few years, there has been greater emphasis on effective handwashing. Asia, North America and Europe are likely to be key markets.

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Need to Maintain Cleanliness and Hygiene

Soaps are vital to maintaining hygiene and cleanliness. Washing hands with water and soap offers effective protection against several infectious diseases; in fact, handwashing with water and soap is more effective than alcohol-based sanitisers. Such protection offered by soaps is expected to be the key driver of the global soap market. There are different types of soaps available on the market that are suited to different types of requirements and needs.

 

A Variety of Soaps is Available to Meet Different Needs

Glycerin is an element of fat or oil. Handmade soaps contain glycerin, which is the result of the chemical reaction that occurs in the soap-making process. Often, several soaps are marketed as glycerin soaps; at the same time, glycerin is deliberately removed by soap producers to sell the soap for cosmetic or moisturizing purposes.

 

Transparent soaps are made employing the hot process method. Alcohol is generally used to make the soap transparent. Sugar syrup (sugar in distilled water) may be used as an alternative to alcohol, but is not as effective. Several manufacturers use ready-made soap base to manufacture transparent soaps.

 

The process to manufacture liquid soap is slightly more intricate than that of producing soap bar. While the hot process method is used, soap assumes liquid form because of a distinct dye (potassium hydroxide) employed in the manufacturing process, and also due to addition of more water. Liquid hand soap is commonly used in houses, offices and public places for handwashing; it comes in economical as well as luxury quality.

 

Such variety of soap is expected to boost the global soap market.

 

Different Purposes Served by Soaps Likely to Boost Market Growth

 

Kitchen soap is used in the kitchen chiefly for dish-washing.

 

Laundry soap is used to clean grease, solid particles, and organic compound in clothes.

 

Novelty soaps are available in different colours and shapes, for example, cake, fish, etc. Novelty soaps, apart from cleaning, also offer fun or amusement value, for example, children generally enjoy using such soaps.

 

Guest soaps are usually smaller than standard soap bars, and may come in a variety of attractive shapes. Such soaps are intended to be used by guests.

 

Medicated soaps carry additional antiseptics and disinfectants to kill microbes.

 

Beauty soaps carry fragrance and elements suited to different skin types. These may contain special oil blends or glycerin.

 

Moisturizing soaps carry a moisturizing agent (for example, aloe, cocoa butter, and shea butter) to moisturize hands while washing. These soaps may be particularly useful for people who experience dry skin after handwashing.

 

Natural hand soaps employ natural elements such as essential oils and don’t carry chemicals like sulphate, parabens, artificial fragrances, phthalates, and synthetic dyes.

 

Chemical-free soaps employ plant-based elements, and are produced using lye and oil. Such soaps are preferred by people with very sensitive skin, or for whom it is a lifestyle choice.

 

These different purposes served by the different types of soap are likely to drive the global soap market.

 

Popular soap brands include CeraVe Hydrating Cleansing Bar, Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar, Glossier Body Hero Exfoliating Bar, SheaMoisture African Black Soap, Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar, Peach Moisturizing Hand & Body Bar, and Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Oval Soap, among others.
