About This Report


Representing roughly 8.0% of Australia's overall chemical production industry (by revenue), the Australian Soap and Detergent Manufacturing industry has a long and varied history. It also forms part of Australia's formulated hygiene, cosmetic and specialty products industry which according to industry body Accord Australasia Ltd has an economic footprint worth $10 billion in annual retail sales.

Moreover, while industry products are designed and formulated using simple chemistry, the industry remains a dynamic one, characterised by strong product innovation as manufacturers compete to retain consumer interest.

This industry covers companies involved in the manufacture of various surfactant products including soap products and other detergents, as well as products such as disinfectants, toothpaste, denture cleaners, glycerine and candles. Raw materials such as petrochemicals and oleo chemicals are sourced from other components of Australian chemical industries. The products are then sold to downstream industrial users, as well as the household and commercial user market segments.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
