“The big issue remains how to best encourage higher penetration of dishwashers in the UK, and as a result drive increased sales of dishwasher detergents. Dispelling some of the myths about machine dishwashing, promoting the benefits and emphasising the affordability of buying and running a dishwasher, including smaller models for smaller homes, is needed to help return this segment of the market to growth.”
– Richard Caines, Senior Household Care Analyst
Some questions answered in this report include:
The dishwashing products market has seen mixed fortunes over the last year, with sales of washing-up liquids showing solid growth but those of dishwasher products almost flat. The machine dishwashing sector continues to suffer from an absence of growth in the number of UK homes owning dishwashers, as well as price discounting on branded products now being considered the norm.
Innovation during 2012 was characterised mainly by range extensions and new packaging, inspired by the London Olympics and Diamond Jubilee, rather than major new product launches. However, sales of some products benefited from NPD activity in the previous year such as Fairy Platinum and the return of the Persil brand in washing-up liquids.
Nevertheless, some of the problems people experience when machine dishwashing and an economic climate that favours looking after what you already have suggests an opportunity for stronger promotion of dishwasher products with added benefits and more easily accessible guidance on getting the most out of one’s dishwasher.
Encouraging wider dishwasher ownership, including through dispelling some of the misconceptions about dishwashers, is the biggest challenge for the dishwashing market, particularly with the trend towards smaller homes not favouring usage. This report looks at dishwashing patterns, buying behaviour and the attitudes most likely to influence the future shape of the dishwashing market.
