Key Market Trends
South Africa’s Uber for Home Hygiene

South Africa’s growing number of households and disposable income resulted in an increased consumer purchasing power for home care and home hygiene products, which is eventually driving the sales of household cleaning products across the residential sector of the country. The adoption of cleaning equipment, such as steam cleaners and vacuum cleaners, followed by the adoption of eco-friendly chemicals in residential settings, is primarily driven by the need to achieve a hygienic and chemical-free cleaning of floors, walls, and kitchens. Cleaning equipment are gaining traction, as deep cleaning and sanitization of carpets at homes are growing. Kitchen and carpets form the largest application end user in the residential segment, primarily for cleaning equipment. Additionally, the growing demand for cleaning products, such as powders and gels, and high economies scale enabled the market to witness the proliferation of private label brands at retail shelves through various promotional offers and discounts. For instance, Pick n Pay, one of largest supermarket chain stores in South Africa, offers a range of cleaning products under its private label, PnP brand, that are certified as vegan, cruelty free, and not tested on animals.?

This eventually resulted in a rapid expansion in the hospitality industry of the country. Thus, with strong growth in the South African commercial real estate market, which includes office buildings, hotels, malls, multifamily housing buildings, farm land, warehouses, and garages, the demand for cleaning products also increased, thereby driving the market studied.
