KEY DATA FINDINGS

2020 IMPACT

More home time and greater concern for hygiene brought on by COVID-19 leads to double-digit growth for several surface care categories in 2020
Sprays and wet wipes continue to generate high interest, with COVID-19 creating greater need for disposable wet wipes with disinfectant properties in 2020

Bleach in Belgium

KEY DATA FINDINGS

2020 IMPACT

Demand pattern for bleach is completely reversed in 2020 as a result of COVID-19
Private label bleach is still the most demanded, but Colgate-Palmolive gains five times more value growth due to higher demand in 2020
As bleach is not driven by innovation, players rely on offering a variety of price sizes to widen interest in 2020

RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES

As fears of infection subside in 2021 and beyond, bleach is expected to resume the declining trend it was experiencing prior to COVID-19
Players’ lack of innovation and investment in bleach as consumers return to more effective and environmentally friendly products will further hinder category prospects
Further development of other home care solutions focussing on hygiene and disinfection is expected to keep bleach trapped in a spiral of decline
