The dishwashing products category has turned in a solid performance over the last several years as consumers have reprioritized the kitchen and home meal preparation during the recession and after. Consumers have also shown interest in and a willingness to pay a little more for products that improve performance, simplify, or enhance the task of dishwashing. Looking ahead, the opportunity for continued growth lies in keeping consumers engaged in product benefits rather than price comparisons.
