Hand Sanitizer Market Growing Faster Than Expected | The Procter and Gamble company, Gojo industry Inc., Reckitt benckiser group Plc., Best sanitizers Inc.

Hand sanitizer helps in prevention from transmission of infection that is mainly caused through hand transmission, which in turn leads to various diseases such as the nosocomial food-borne disease and others. Increasing consumer inclination towards wellness and health is resulting in product innovations, thereby boosting the growth of hand sanitizer market. Improving living standards, rising health expenditure, growing awareness regarding hand hygiene and favorable support from organizations such as FDA and WHO towards need for sanitation has been augmenting demand for the hand sanitizer.

Gel hand sanitizer is likely to continue generating maximum revenue growth in hand sanitizer market as it is easily available across the aisles of various stores, ranging from general stores to supermarkets. In addition, gel hand sanitizer requires comparatively lesser time for effectively eradicating germs. However, foam hand sanitizer is likely to gain traction in the hand sanitizer market over the forecast period. Foam hand sanitizer immediately clings to the hand while applying and is relatively smaller compared to spray, liquid, gel and other types of hand sanitizer. All these factors makes foam hand sanitizer a preferable choice for the customers. Time consuming and easily accessible aspects will continue to drive the growth of hand sanitizer market at an impressive pace.

Hand sanitizers are nowadays used as an alternative to washing hands using soap and water. Hand sanitizers are highly recommended because of their effectiveness in killing germs and microorganisms. The active component in the hand sanitizers is alcohol. The alcohol based sanitizers account to the largest market share in the global hand sanitizers market. But because of the high alcohol content these hand rubs are placed in the flammable liquid categories which in turn questions the safety and effectiveness. The hand sanitizers find extensive use in the hospitals and food service providers where the hand hygiene is of high importance. The hand sanitizer market is expected to witness double digit growth in the forecast period.
