Commercial offices, hospitality, retail, food service, and healthcare industries know the importance of sanitary conditions for improving client interactions. For any client-facing business, customer satisfaction depends on the facility’s ability to maintain a clean work environment. The growth of the global cleaning chemicals market is directly related to the growth of these key industries.
Even industries that don’t directly face consumers—such as automotive manufacturing and food processing—require certain hygiene standards and industrial cleaning chemicals to produce better products and protect people’s health.
Understanding the industrial cleaning chemicals market requires taking into account market trends in several other domestic and international industries. We’ve analyzed extensive market research in the industrial cleaning market and distilled the market trends into the following key takeaways.
Industrial Cleaning Chemicals Market Trends
More Demand for General-Purpose Cleaning Products
Increasing global demand for industrial cleaning chemicals is driven in large part by the growth of medical institutions. Hospitals and healthcare facilities put the highest emphasis on cleanliness, and the recent increase in new hospitals and healthcare facilities across the globe is playing an essential role in the growth of the industrial cleaning chemicals market.
India, for example, is experiencing a major expansion of healthcare facilities. As of 2021, medical facilities in India comprise:
- 157,819 functional sub-centers (SCs)
- 30,579 primary health centers (PHCs)
- 5,951 community health centers (CHCs)
Many of India’s PHCs have been upgraded to CHCs, including those located in rural areas.
Hospital expansion in China is also increasing rapidly. China’s National Bureau of Statistics shows hospital construction grew from 35,394 in 2020 to 36,570 in 2021. These examples of healthcare institutions growing around the world help explain the increasing demand for general-purpose cleaning products.
North America Will Dominate the Market
The North American market still dominates the industrial cleaning chemicals market worldwide, amid increasing hospital construction and growing public awareness of the importance of hygiene. According to StatCan, Canada reached a record number of hospitals—13,000—in 2021. Mexico and the United States are also breaking records in medical facility construction.
Laundry care is another important segment in the industrial cleaning chemicals market, reaching $14.55 billion in 2021 and expected to grow steadily. Car washes also contribute greatly to the industrial cleaning market, and demand for car wash products is significantly increasing. This includes car washing products used by OEMs on new vehicles as well as aftermarket and professional car wash facilities.
Food and beverage processing plants further contribute to heightened industrial cleaning product figures. In particular, the market in Mexico is expected to grow due to a combination of factors:
- A rising trend of packaged food consumption
- Elevated standards of living
- Increased buying power
Other Key Drivers of the Global Industrial Cleaning Chemicals Market
Generally, increased interest in hygiene, health, and safety in industrial environments is expected to propel the industrial cleaning chemicals market. The market’s growth will also be driven by increasing industrialization and new manufacturing facilities in developing regions.
Awareness has also risen about the negative health effects of volatile organic compound (VOC) content in cleaning chemicals, leading to greater investment in research and development aimed at reducing the VOC content of industrial cleaning chemicals. In manufacturing, automotive, and water treatment industries, demand is elevated for several industrial cleaning chemicals in particular, including:
- Surface cleaners
- Rust cleaning agents
