Top Trends in Household Cleaning and Laundry 2017: The latest trends in the air freshener, dishwashing product, general purpose household cleaner, laundry care, household paper towels and pest control categories

Summary

Comfort & Uncertainty has strong influence over household cleaning and laundry purchases, with consumers seeking the familiar brands they trust. In addition to familiarity, consumers seek affordable products. Brands that can offer added value or differentiation at a lower price point will therefore prevail.

While the influence of health is very important in household cleaning and laundry products, consumers will continue to seek familiar brands at an affordable price before those that align with their health. The challenge for brands is to align with health needs whilst maintaining consumer trust and affordable price points.

Four key trends impacting innovation in household cleaning and laundry care are –
– Scent-Sory Appeal: Scent is increasingly becoming a point of differentiation in this industry, with fragranced product variants being used to convey cleanliness and luxury.
– Convenient Cleaning: Products that require minimal time and labor commitments and that deliver maximum efficacy appeal to time-scarce consumers.
– Green Cleaning: Products that preserve and protect both environmental and human health are in high demand, highlighting the consumer preference for more holistic, natural cleaning products.
– Targeting Male Consumers: Brands are moving away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach, recognizing the influence that social change is having on male participation in household chores.

While lower temperatures will be used for washing, cleaning products which do not need to be used with water at all will also grow in popularity. Examples include LG’s Styler- a clothes maintenance system that uses hot air to remove stains and creases from clothes.1 The use of DIY cleaning products which eliminate water and make use of ingredients such as lemon juice will also prevail, as concentrated and potentially more effective cleaning solutions.

Advances in technology are making the concept of an internet connected home increasingly realistic. Products that operate via the touch of a button on your smartphone or even via voice command will grow in popularity. Developments in cloud computing and artificial intelligence will allow consumers increased control over the management of their household devices, i.e. turning off devices when not at home, or commanding a task to be completed.
