Global Household Services Industry

The global household services industry (one level down from theglobal consumer services market) refers to the provision of assistance and personal services to households to carry out daily domestic tasks.Household incomes continue to increase as employment rates rise following the world economic recession.People with less and less time to spend on domestic tasks and the means to pay for domestic aid through the household services industry are in a position to do so.Consumer spending on household services such as laundry,home cleaning and gardening services continues to rise following as consumers and the economy recover from the downturn.

Key Market Segments

Theworld laundry servicesmarketwas less affected by the economic recession than other sectors due to the necessity forgood quality laundry services.According to research from Euromonitor International,consumers in established markets,like the US and the EU,favor concentrated laundry products for environmental reasons,while those in developing nations are driving demand for semi-automatic washing machines and value-added products.Laundry services demand in emerging markets is also being fuelled by rising incomes.

Laundry detergent salesaccount for almost 60% of overall laundry care products in Japan and more than 55% in Saudi Arabia,reports Datamonitor.Laundry detergent sales have risen to as much as 85% of overall laundry care product sales in India and Russia.Conditioners represent less than 5% of Sweden's overall market value and around a third of Saudi Arabia's overall market.Companies operating in India's laundry market could concentrate marketing efforts to appeal to consumer demand for natural ingredients due to the high level of clothes being washed by hand.
