Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the cloth drying products market growth was primarily driven by the rising demand for affordable and durable laundry dryers. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for cloth drying products was also driven by their flexibility, modern designs, and easy installation. However, the cloth drying products market faced negative impacts of the pandemic during the first quarter of 2020 due to business shutdown and raw material and labor shortages. The COVID-19 pandemic also led to economic recession in the initial months of 2020, which created financial difficulties for low-income and mid-income consumers. Consumers only preferred essential goods, such as groceries and medical products, due to the financial crisis. Thus, with depressed incomes, the demand for nonessential goods decreased, which reduced the profits of many small-scale and large-scale laundry dryer manufacturers.
Moreover, the retailers of nonessential goods were mandated to keep their stores shut during the first few months of the outbreak, negatively impacting the sales of cloth drying products. However, as consumers were stuck inside their homes, they spent time on housework, such as cleaning, cooking, washing clothes and sheets, and gardening. Some consumers also found washing and drying laundry in open air pleasurable as they could spend some time in the garden and open spaces, which positively impacted the sales of laundry drying products.
Line drying of clothes is quite beneficial, especially when compared to machine drying or tumble drying. Tumble dryers use excessive heat to dry out the laundry, which reduces their shine and causes wear and tear to fabrics. Some delicate fabrics get damaged due to excessive heat used by tumble dryers, and the damage caused is sometimes irreversible.
Line drying is gentle on clothes, increasing their life and providing natural shine to the fabrics. It is also helpful in preventing wrinkles and creases on clothes, eventually eliminating the need for ironing. Line dryers or drying racks are much more affordable than machine dryers. Moreover, they require less cost of maintenance than machine dryers.
The use of bleaches and harsh fabric cleaners can be avoided by line drying clothes in sunlight as the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays act as a natural bleaching agent and kill bacteria and pathogens in the fabrics. Thus, cloth drying products are increasingly being utilized due to factors mentioned above.
Based on product type, the global cloth drying products market is segmented into rotary dryer , wall-mounted dryer, and drying rack. In 2021, the drying rack segment accounted for the largest revenue share, while the wall-mounted dryer segment is expected to account for the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Drying racks are portable, compact, and suitable for small settings. They are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. Some manufacturers provide wheels to the drying racks to move them easily from one place to another. Drying racks may have one single drying clothesline with foldable legs or foldable wings and legs that provide additional drying space. Drying racks require very small space for storage, making them ideal for small apartments.
Moreover, drying racks are made of durable and sturdy materials that can hold the entire laundry load of a family. Manufacturers of drying racks offer products with contemporary designs that are suitable for modern apartments. The rising urban population and demand for compact and durable laundry drying products are the key factors driving the segment’s growth.
