The UK’s £432 million combined hand and automatic dishwashing detergents market achieved growth of 18% between 2004 and 2009, driven by the upturn of the machine wash sector.

The machine wash market continues to be extremely competitive as market leaders Reckitt Benckiser and Procter & Gamble vie for technical supremacy.
