According to Fact.MR, detergent polymers are likely to be used in industrial and institutional cleaning applications because they offer the advantages of inhibiting scale encrustation and dye transfer. In addition, these are able to reduce energy and water consumption when used in dishwashers or washing machines.

“The demand for liquid detergents due to the high purchasing power of people in developing countries is expected to accelerate the market during the forecast period. In addition, the focus of the major players on expanding their production capacities should also promote growth, ”said an analyst from Fact.MR.

Key points to remember:

  • On the basis of applications, the washing powders segment is expected to account for more than half of the global market share in the near future.
  • By source, the natural and bio-based segment is expected to show growth at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period.
  • In terms of chemicals, the polycarboxylates segment is expected to remain in the foreground due to their increasing use as binders in detergents.
  • In terms of countries, China is likely to hold more than 1/3e of the world market due to the strong demand for liquid detergents.
  • Depending on the region, East Asia is expected to grow at a growth rate of 6%, with China growth leader in the region.

Growth drivers:

  • The growing preference for natural detergents and the strict standards surrounding the use of phosphate-based detergent formulations are expected to drive the market.
  • The increasing use of detergent pods as they require less water for cleaning is likely to propel the growth of this market.


  • Constantly changing standards associated with the management of ingredients used in the production of detergents may limit the growth of this market.
