Home Care

Examining changing home care and product trends across key consumer groups.

At The Harris Poll, we monitor home care and product trends that can help brands predict where the industry is headed. We will update this page with emerging insights that allow companies to prepare for consumers’ ever-evolving purchasing patterns.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have been spending more time in and on their homes than ever-before. How has this increased time at home influenced home appliance preferences? Have cleaning habits changed since the pandemic? How have pet owners’ personal values impacted pet food purchases? 


Current Trends in Home Care & Products

Over the past few years, we have experienced a hectic housing market. With the swell in home prices, we have also seen a new crop of homeowners emerge (Millennials). As these young buyers move into their first homes, they have brought with them an enthusiasm for home projects and a desire to feather their nests.

Here, we provide a data-driven snapshot into the world of home care and products to help brands prepare for future consumer expectations. We measure consumer sentiment towards key trends including environmentally conscious living and home improvement projects.
