Global Fabric Softener Market sales value is about 8.0 billion USD in 2017

Fabric softener is a product used while laundering to make clothes soft and eliminate static cling. The first fabric softeners were developed by the textile industry during the early twentieth century. In the late 1970s manufacturers found a way to deliver fabric softening benefits in a dryer sheet format. So, there are two types of fabric softener, such as fabric softener sheets and liquid fabric softener. Liquid fabric softener, which has longer history, is used more wildly than fabric softener sheets. In 2016, global consumption of liquid fabric softener is about 3714 K MT.
