According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled,"Liquid Detergent Market, by Nature, Application, Sales Channel, and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025,"the global liquid detergent market was valued at $27,405 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $40,482 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2018 to 2025. In 2017, the U.S. liquid detergent market accounted for about one-fourth of the global liquid detergent market.

Liquid detergent market growth is driven by rise in per capita income, increase rapid urbanization, improvement in living standard, and changes in consumer lifestyle. Moreover, surge in need for comfort in household chores and increase in penetration of washing machines & dishwashers boost the market growth. In addition, inclination of consumers toward eco-friendly & natural liquid detergents augments the market expansion.

Majority of the developed region, including, but not limited to, the U.S., UK, Australia, and Germany have witnessed decline in sales of powder detergents, owing to the fact that young generation has shifted its preference toward liquid detergents over bar/powder detergent, as they perceive liquid detergent to be more anti-bacterial and hygienic. Over half of the U.S. consumers believed that bar detergents contain harbor germ after use. As a result, leading manufacturers of liquid detergent have scaled up their production capabilities to cater the growing demands.

Convenience for handling of liquid detergent remains one of the key concerns for leading manufacturers. As a result prominent players in the market introduced liquid detergent in variety of packaging formats, including but not limited to sachets, bottles, cans, and others. In parallel, brands, such as HEX, have introduced flexible, upright pouches with a tap for dispensing liquid detergent. Moreover, P&G introduced Tide Eco-Box, a sealed bag of ultra-compacted liquid detergent inside a cardboard box with a dosing cup and a new no-drip twist tap. Such packaging innovations have gained huge popularity among consumers, which have augmented the demand for liquid detergents, thereby propelling the growth of the market.

Liquid detergents might contain chemicals with negative health effects ranging from skin and throat irritation to carcinogenicity. Presence of phosphates, nonylphenol ethoxylate, 1,4-dioxane, and other toxic chemicals may pose potential threat to human health as well as affect the surrounding environment. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, surfactants in detergents are toxic to aquatic life and might break down into additional toxic byproducts.

Furthermore, liquid detergents are packed in rigid packaging made up of non-recyclable plastics, which pose additional burden on the environment. As a result manufacturers are now transitioning toward sustainable products.

Liquid detergents are expensive as compared to its counter parts powder detergents. High prices of liquid detergent limit the target audience for the manufacturers. Removing existing price difference between liquid and powder detergent remains a key challenge for manufacturers, however, high prices of liquid detergent limit the consumer base.
