The Global Soaps Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period. The North American region dominates the global soap markets due to its increasing demand for organic and natural products. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region with China being one of the major driving forces in this growth because of rising disposable incomes and an increase in awareness about personal hygiene.


On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into Organic Soap and Natural Soap. The Organic type segment holds a major share in the global market due to its increasing demand from the consumers who are increasingly becoming aware of the use of organic products which is safe for their skin as well as the environment.


Organic Soap:

Organic Soaps are made from natural elements such as plants, herbs, and oils. They do not contain petroleum-based products that can be tough on the skin. Organic soaps often use palm oil or coconut oil to create a lather; these two ingredients also act as moisturizers for the skin after leaving it clean.


Natural Soap:

Natural soap usually comes from the saponification of various oils that are derived from plant sources. These natural soaps, unlike synthetic detergents, do not include any chemicals or other artificial ingredients hence they provide optimum benefits for skin and hair.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Household and Industrial. The household segment held a larger share of the market in 2018 as compared to the industrial application due to increased penetration rates of soap bars, liquid soaps, and other personal care products such as body wash and shampoo among consumers across regions.



Soaps are used for cleaning purposes, and can also be used as an antiseptic or disinfectant. Some soaps contain components that act as surfactants (detergents), emulsifiers, foam boosters, softeners, humectants (moisturizers), thickeners/viscosity-controlling agents, preserving agents to increase product shelf life, or fragrances.



Soaps are used in industrial applications for cleaning purposes. Soap is also used as a lubricant to reduce the friction between two moving parts because of its low cost and availability, but it can be corrosive since soap contains small amounts of acids or bases. The major uses of soaps in industry include-

  • Metal cleaning (rust removal)
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning leather products like shoes, belts, bags, etc.
  • Automotive care (washing cars/ motorbikes)


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is expected to dominate the global soap markets due to its increasing demand for organic and natural products. Asia Pacific market will experience tremendous growth due to rapid industrialization which results in increased usage of soaps especially in developing countries such as India, China & Singapore, etc.


Growth Factors For The Global Soaps Market:

The global soaps market is experiencing a high rate of growth. The main reason for the same is the increasing awareness about personal hygiene, concerns regarding skin diseases and infections, growing disposable income in emerging countries, etc.

However, factors such as lack of understanding among consumers about different types of soap products may hamper its progress to some extent. For instance- liquid hand wash contains harsh chemicals which can damage your sensitive skin whereas on the other hand natural soaps do not contain these harmful chemicals but they might be expensive than their alternatives.
