The U.S. household cleaning products industry has struggled since 2000. Mass-market sales, which stood at $4155.1 million in 2000, tapered to $3971.4 million in 2004. Much of the blame for this can be placed squarely on changing consumers cleaning habits, erring on the side of messy and inconsistent. New cleaning products on the market fit faster-paced lifestyles and are changing household demographics.
Packaged Facts' report, The U.S. Market for Household Cleaning Products, explores why activities such as window cleaning have taken a backseat to easier or more necessary cleaning activities, causing mixed results in the market and how this will affect the marketplace in the future. This report looks at the cleaning product categories (treated wipes, floor cleaners, air fresheners and toilet bowl cleaners) that fared well in 2004, and those (dishwashing products, furniture cleaners, and glass cleaners) that have faltered, fueling an overall negative market result.
While the household cleaning products industry is in desperate need of an infusion, cleaning products marketers and manufacturers should not despair. New cleaning products on the market attest to the fact that while consumers in the cleaning products market are unlikely to revert back to old cleaning behaviors, they are willing to try new product innovations, especially those that are adapted to meet their new cleaning needs.
