In 2021 home care sales slowed after experiencing above average growth in 2020 due to the onset of COVID-19. Despite the popularity of traditional alternatives and high poverty levels in the country, population growth, retailing development and urbanisation are boosting home care.
Demand for home care products benefited from growing awareness of hygiene and cleanliness among consumers in 2020 and to a lesser extent in 2021 as the pandemic began to recede. The improving economy also helped to stimulate demand for home care products, which is also having a direct impact on packaging solutions.
