Report Overview

The global soap dispenser market size was valued at USD 1.40 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% from 2023 to 2030. The rapid growth of the bathroom fittings industry is offering lucrative opportunities for soap dispenser manufacturers. In addition, the rising demand for multi-functional soap dispensers that are aesthetically appealing and complement other plumbing fixtures are boosting the market. However, the current outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe has significantly stepped-up awareness among people regarding self-hygiene and maintaining a clean environment. The highly contagious virus is easily transmitted through touch, from one infected object or person to another. And as a result, frequently washing hands with soap has been identified as a critical preventive measure by healthcare organizations around the world. This has had a positive impact on the growth of the soap dispensers market and the trend is likely to continue in the months to come.

Moreover, expanding the product portfolio of manufacturers in the industry is also likely to have a positive impact on the market.

This drives the demand for designer bathroom fittings.

Furthermore, with the advent of smart and connected technology, companies are also offering smart soap dispensers and this trend has been gaining much traction among consumers. For instance, Kohler Co. offers an automatic 16-ounce soap dispenser. This refillable dispenser can be installed in predrilled sink holes and can work in tandem with contemporary-style faucets. The product is available in various finishes such as Polished Chrome, Vibrant Polished Nickel, Brushed Chrome, and Vibrant Stainless.
