APAC & Latin America are home to several developing industries and emerging economies. The growing demand for food products, vehicles, and hospital beds is expected to have a corresponding impact on the demand for industrial laundry detergents in these regions. Additionally, the increasing frequency of travel and tourism activities in these regions is contributing to the market's growth.
The high penetration of food and beverages, chemical, and automotive industries, and the significant increase in awareness of hygienic practices in the health industry are driving the use of industrial laundry detergents.
Manufacturing industries and hospitals are expected to witness the highest growth at a CAGR of over 9% and 7%, respectively.
The liquid laundry detergent and fabric care segments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% and 8%, respectively. Although the fabric care segment accounts for a meager share in the market, the rising awareness among end-use industries will create long-term demand for fabric care products.
One of the key growth restraints in the global industrial laundry detergent market is the volatility in the oil & gas industry. The uncertainty in the market is affecting raw material prices in many countries. Also, the COVID-19 outbreak and associated lockdown restrictions have adversely affected the unorganized industrial sectors in developing economies.
The advent of the online platform has created a tremendous opportunity for numerous vendors to step up and pitch their offerings worldwide without being restrained by physical boundaries.
Emerging economies such as Brazil, India, and China, are witnessing an increase in the demand for liquid laundry detergents due to rising awareness of cleanliness and hygiene and improving economic conditions.

Industrial Laundry Detergent Market – Dynamics
On a broader level, industrial laundry detergents can be categorized under powder laundry detergents and liquid laundry detergents. Although the powder laundry detergent segment dominates the market, the liquid laundry detergent segment has also gained a significant share in recent times. Liquid industrial laundry detergents can be manufactured using less energy-intensive processes. The growing preference for liquid industrial laundry detergent variants is attributable to their compact nature and sustainability savings. The gradual shift in consumer demand from powder laundry detergents to liquid laundry detergents is also due to the convenience associated with liquid formats and fewer instances of after-wash issues. The liquid laundry detergent segment has immense potential for future growth. Several developed regions such as Europe and North America are witnessing a higher penetration of liquid laundry detergents. However, the demand for liquid laundry detergents is expected to grow significantly in developing regions such as APAC and Latin America. Also, China's liquid laundry detergent market has tremendous potential for future growth as the penetration of the liquid laundry detergent segment in the country is expected to exceed 58% by 2024.
