Some of the top laundry care market players are introducing liquid detergents with plant-based ingredients in response to the surging demand for organic homecare products. On account of this, sales of laundry care products are expected to increase at 4% CAGR in terms of volume between 2021 and 2031.

Increasing adoption of advanced and automatic laundry machines which are compatible with detergent pods and liquid detergent also will improve the sales of liquid laundry detergents. Demand for sustainable and plant-based liquid detergents is rising, especially across India, China, and South Korea, which is expected to positively impact the growth in the market.
