EMEA: largest sponge and scouring pads market
Countries such as the UK, Germany, and Saudi Arabia are the major contributors to the sponge and scouring pads market in EMEA. The growth can be attributed to the growing food service industry, leading to an increase in restaurants, hotels, and food joints consecutively, thereby increasing the adoption of sponges and scouring pads in EMEA. The market is further expected to grow during the forecast period due to the growing hotel food services market which has raised the need for cleaning tools and supplies.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on retail goods and services, “The growth rate of the sponge and scouring pads market in the EMEA is expected to decline by approximately 1% by 2022. This decline can be attributed to the increasing disposable income and changes in lifestyle among growing economies in APAC.”
