The country’s densely populated cities are considerably more polluted that its rural areas and as South Africa’s urban pollution increased over the course of the review period, increasing numbers of consumers turned to air care products to help them keep their personal environment clean and odour-free.

Industry Prospects

Air care is expected to continue recording positive value growth in South Africa over the forecast period, with rising sales in the category driven mainly by population growth and continued urbanisation as well as a corresponding increase in air pollution levels in South Africa’s largest cities. This is making it more important for consumers to freshen and sanitise their homes and this is likely to continue bolstering growth in air care products during the forecast period. Air care is expected to increase in value at a CAGR of 3% in constant 2014 terms over during the review period, rising to ZAR818 million in 2019. This is set to be a slower rate of growth than the 4% value CAGR recorded in the category in constant 2014 terms over the review period. According to data collected by Euromonitor International, consumer spending in South Africa has been in gradual decline since 2011. Consumer spending is expected to remain subdued during the forecast period. However, consumer spending is expected to begin increasing once again from 2015 onwards, albeit at a slow pace and 2011 sales levels and are not expected to be achieved before the end of 2016.
