Soap is an essential product of our daily lives, In France where a population of 66,9 millions people , every year consume more than 100.000 tons of soaps in bread or average of one billion breads or an average of one billion breads or about 15 loaves per inhabitant.
For liquid soap, shampoo and shower gel more than 520,000a day are sold or nearly 185 million a year.
In the US , according to the statistic, 274.58 million Americans used bar soap.
One bar of soap per week, 3 bars of soaps per week for 4 people x 300 million = 225 million per week or 11.7 billion per year, adding bars used in hotels, restaurant etc..assuming that every person spends 5 nights per year in hotels room, there are 2 people per room per night, that would be 750 million hotel nights per year and assuming that each morning the cleaning people change the soap, that would increase our total to 12.45 billion per year.
Add an additional 550 million per year for restaurants, gas station, work places etc..still using bar soap instead of liquid and we get a round estimate of 13 billion bars of soaps sold in the US per year...now that a lot of soaps and enough for local little business to see a future in the soap making ....The market is big, the world is a big place, everyone uses soaps.
