Dishwashing Detergents - France - April 2009

Manufacturers continue to seek to meet consumer demands for ever more effective, more natural, more environmentally-friendly products at ever-lower prices. Dishwashing detergents have grown as dishwasher ownership has expanded – added value has been easier to achieve in this more premium sector, with its affluent consumer base. Manufacturers have shown ingenuity in meeting these difficult demands, but the anticipated recession will put intense pressure on consumer spending and make the next few years particularly difficult.

The countries examined within the Consumer Goods Intelligence series of reports are France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
