The global laundry care product industry revenue is forecast to reach estimated revenue of $85 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 5.1% over the next five years (2012-2017).

The laundry care product industry is a capital intensive and consolidated industry. Top players are competing with each other to uphold their place in the market. The industry has high profitability; however, raw material cost has been increasing, such as for chemicals that are used in the manufacturing of products. The industry recovered from the recessionary period and now is in a growing phase with rising population and consumer spending power. The competitive landscape changed little during 2006-2011. Church and Dwight Co., Inc. moved up from ninth to eighth position in 2011, replacing Lion Corporation.
Rising population, consumer income, and changing lifestyles drive laundry care product demand. Maintaining a balance between price and quality is the biggest challenge for the industry.
