Saudi Arabia Laundry Chemicals Market Driver:

Expansion of Tourism & Hotel Chains Amplifying the Demand for the Laundry Chemicals – In recent years, there has been a surge in inbound tourism across the country due to the rising live events & prevalence of the cultural heritage sites, like the Nabatean city of Hegra (Mada'in Salih), Al-Hijr (Madain Salih), etc. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, in 2023, the country welcomed around 27.42 million inbound tourists, an increase of about 64.78% compared to 2022. The surging number of inbound tourists necessitates the usage of laundry chemicals to clean linens, towels, and clothing during their stays, driving the Saudi Arabia Laundry Chemicals Market. In addition, the increasing inbound tourism is also resulting in the requirement for proper hotel accommodation. As a result, several hotel chains are expanding in Saudi Arabia. For instance,

  • In 2024, Hilton, a leading Hotel Group, announced its plan to open around 60 new hotels in Saudi Arabia to cater to the accommodation demand of growing inbound tourists.

These hotels and resorts have high laundry requirements to ensure that guest rooms, linens, towels, and uniforms are clean, fresh, and hygienic. Therefore, there is a consistent need for laundry chemicals in the hospitality sector in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia Laundry Chemicals Market Challenge:

Cultural & Religious Sensitivities to Downturn the Demand for Laundry Chemicals – Laundry Chemicals typically contain ingredients derived from animals, such as enzymes or surfactants sourced from animal products. In addition, certain laundry chemicals, such as fabric softeners or stain removers, also contain alcohol as a solvent or preservative. Along with it, these laundry chemicals also have fragrances and essential oils to impart scents. Hence, these ingredients conflict with Islamic dietary laws or cultural preferences is hampering market growth.

Further, the government of Saudi Arabia is also imposing restrictions on the usage of certain ingredients in laundry chemicals to ensure compliance with cultural & religious sensitivities. As a result, the leading market players are now specifying labeling and packaging requirements for laundry chemicals, including clear identification of ingredients, safety warnings, and compliance with religious guidelines.

Saudi Arabia Laundry Chemicals Market Trend:

Increased Focus on Sustainability to Boost the Demand for Green Laundry Chemicals – In recent years, there has been heightened awareness of environmental issues, such as climate change, pollution, and resource depletion in Saudi Arabia. As a result, consumers and business associations are shifting towards sustainability while purchasing products. According to the survey conducted by the World Resources Institute, in 2023, around 73% of Gen Z shoppers are willing to spend more on sustainable brands. Consumers are increasingly laundry chemicals made from eco-friendly options since they reduce carbon footprint & environmental benefits, driving Saudi Arabia's Laundry Chemicals Market.

In addition, the rising environmental educational programs are also making consumers more environment-conscious. As a result, consumer preferences are shifting towards products that align with their values of sustainability, ethical sourcing, and environmental stewardship. Moreover, the government of Saudi Arabia is also laying sustainability standards, which is compelling the market players to adopt green practices while manufacturing laundry chemicals.
