The study finds that soap dispenser market players have quickly reacted to the situation arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The production of touchless soap dispensers has witnessed an increase in the recent past.

Touchless operations have been the need of the hour, especially to avert cross-contamination. Technology-based soap dispensers dispense a calculated quantity of liquid soap. As such, soap doesn’t get used excessively.

The study finds that consumers are also changing the manner in which they use soap dispensers. They have shifted from soaps to wall-mounted automated soap dispensers due to growing awareness on the part of hygiene. Commercial spaces, corporate offices, and educational institutions are seen mounting these soap dispensers these days.

The above-mentioned trend has prompted the market players to emphasize on product launches for adding to the revenue. This trend is expected to create a holistic demand for automated soap dispensers in the forecast period (2020-2030).

Moreover, outbreak of Covid-19 has escalated the demand for touchless soap dispensers. This trend will never cease to exist, as precautions will be imperative.

Built-in Soap Dispensers

The modular kitchens these days come with built-in soap dispensers. If it’s a double-bowl, four-hole stainless steel sink, the kitchen faucet makes use of three holes and the 4th hole could be used to install deck spray head.

Or else, old faucet could be removed and replaced with stylish pullout-spray model making use of the same 3 sink faucet holes. The new faucet could leave that additional deck hole open for installing soap dispenser.

Stainless Steel Built-in soap dispenser works well for the kitchen sink. The basic advantage is that it has a refillable and reusable dispenser pump that holds hand soap, essential oils, or lotion in a fashionable container to occupy very little room in the sink, at countertop, or in vanity.

This multi-purpose dispenser, as the name suggests, could be used for adding equipment soap hand sanitizer, shower gel, shampoo as well. These advantages are bound to increase the demand for soap dispensers on the whole, and built-in soap dispensers in particular.

“Touch-less soap dispensers are witnessing an ever-increasing demand in the wake of Covid-19 crisis. This trend will continue to propel the soap dispenser market in the forecast period as well”says the FMI analyst.
