Positive current retail value sales growth continued in dishwashing in 2018, driven by the strong growth observed within automatic dishwashing tablets, helped by high price points and high dishwashing machine ownership rates. Additionally, eco trends helped drive value sales growth, owing to the higher price points occupied by eco brands and their increasing levels of penetration.

Local player Quantum Pacific was one of the more innovative companies in 2018, with a focus on delivering high-performing products.
