The household laundry equipment market size has grown strongly in recent years. It will grow from $101.96 billion in 2023 to $108.11 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0%. The growth observed in the historical period can be attributed to several factors, including the electrification of households, evolving consumer lifestyles, the trend of urbanization and the prevalence of smaller living spaces, the rise in the number of nuclear families globally, and the growing awareness of energy conservation.
The household laundry equipment market size is expected to see steady growth in the next few years. It will grow to $131.11 billion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9%. Anticipated growth in the forecast period can be attributed to various factors, including the adoption of smart and connected appliances, a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability, the influence of health and hygiene trends, urbanization with limited living space, and the increasing automation of laundry processes. Additionally, key trends expected in the forecast period encompass the popularity of front-load washing machines, the emergence of washer-dryer combos, the use of smart laundry apps, the development of faster and more efficient laundry cycles, and the incorporation of laundry sanitization features in household laundry equipment.
The rapid global urbanization trend is poised to be a significant contributor to the growth of the household laundry equipment market during the forecast period. As of April 2022, the World Economic Forum, an independent international organization headquartered in Switzerland, reported that over 4.3 billion people, equivalent to 55% of the world's population, resided in urban areas, with a projected increase to 80% by 2050. The surge in urban population, coupled with rising disposable incomes and affordability in cities, is anticipated to fuel the demand for household laundry equipment.
The household laundry equipment market is expected to experience substantial growth due to the expansion of the hospitality industry. This sector encompasses services such as lodging, dining, and entertainment offered through businesses like hotels, restaurants, and various entertainment venues. Laundry equipment holds a pivotal role in the hospitality industry, ensuring that hotels, resorts, and similar establishments maintain high standards of cleanliness and guest satisfaction. For instance, in January 2023, the American Hotel and Lodging Association, a US-based trade association representing the hospitality industry, reported a 9% increase in hotel occupancy rates in the United States in April 2022 compared to the previous year, reaching a rate of 62.7%. The average hotel occupancy rate is projected to reach 63.8% by 2023, underscoring the role of the expanding hospitality industry in driving the growth of household laundry equipment.
The market for household laundry equipment is expected to face constraints due to the rising demand for online on-demand laundry services in the forecast period. These services are anticipated to benefit from stable economic growth forecasts in both developed and developing countries. For example, in June 2023, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, a France-based international economic organization, projected modest UK gross domestic product growth of 0.3% in 2023, with an expected improvement to 1.0% in 2024. Furthermore, emerging markets are anticipated to exhibit slightly faster growth rates compared to developed markets in the forecast period. Factors such as stable economic growth, increased internet penetration, rising disposable incomes, and the busy lifestyles of individuals are likely to drive the demand for on-demand laundry services, potentially limiting the growth of the household washing machine market.
Household laundry equipment manufacturers are increasingly focused on producing energy-efficient products to diminish carbon footprints and facilitate energy savings for consumers. The surge in energy-efficient appliances is a result of strict government regulations governing electric home appliances and the continuous advancements in technology. These appliances are engineered to consume the least amount of energy required to fulfill their intended tasks. Currently, more than 80 countries have implemented standards and labeling for energy-efficient appliances. In the USA, for example, washing machines certified by Energy Star use 25% less energy and 33% less water compared to standard washing machines.
Key companies within the household laundry equipment market are launching innovative products like Ecobubble as a strategy to gain a competitive edge. Ecobubble represents a line of fully automatic washing machines designed to elevate cleaning efficiency and fabric care through unique bubble and pulsator features. For instance, in September 2022, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a South Korea-based electronics manufacturer specializing in consumer electronics and home appliances, introduced the Ecobubble range of fully automatic top-load washing machines. Engineered to meet contemporary laundry demands, these machines utilize digital inverter technology to achieve up to 20% improved fabric care while reducing energy consumption in every washing cycle. The Ecobubble series integrates Samsung's innovative BubbleStorm and DualStorm technologies, optimizing washing performance. BubbleStorm effectively combines air and water with the detergent to create abundant bubbles, facilitating 2.5 times faster detergent penetration, while the DualStorm pulsator generates a robust water flow inside the drum for efficient cleaning.
