“Although household care is largely protected from reduced engagement due to rising costs by its needs-based status, brands can still prepare themselves for shifts in consumer habits and behaviours around dishwashing. Value will become even more critical, which will encourage many people to shift their spend to discounters, or to seek out more promotional deals. However, it’s also important that brands continue to define the value they offer, for example through high performance. Fairy and Finish are great examples of brands that have performed strongly even in testing financial times because of their reputation for efficacy and efficiency.”

– Richard Hopping, Director of Household Care Insights, EMEA, May 2022
