Global Hand Sanitizer Market

Global Hand Sanitizer Market- Overview

Hand sanitizers, available in the form of foam, gels, or liquids, have antibacterial properties and are capable of killing infection-causing microorganisms. These are generally used as an alternative when water and soap are unavailable or frequent hand-washing is irritating the user’s skin. A majority of hand sanitizers available in the market are alcohol-based and contain up to 95% alcohol and are, therefore, flammable. The flammability of hand sanitizers makes them quite dangerous when exposed to flame.

Global Hand Sanitizer Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Government Initiatives Regarding Hygiene and Sanitation

The governments in different parts of the world are taking various initiatives to boost the use of hand sanitizers among the public to prevent the spread of communicable diseases, including the COVID-19 virus. As a result of growing public-private partnerships, financial and material resources are being provided to support these government initiatives. For instance, 15,000 educational institutions in Indonesia are receiving COVID-19 Safe School Kits under Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing with Soap (PPP-HWWS) to safely reopen schools. Such initiatives are anticipated to boost the demand for hand sanitizers in the market.

Increasing Investment In Hand Sanitizer Production

Due to the increasing demand for hand sanitizers worldwide, manufacturers are focusing on expanding their production capacity to cope with the rising demand. For instance, Global Impact Innovation and Big River Resources announced that GII will use a portion of later ethanol plant in Galva, Illinois to produce 100,000 gallons of hand sanitizer each month. Increasing production of hand sanitizers will close the huge gap between global demand and supply, which will drive growth of the market.

Restraints

Increasing Penetration of Counterfeit and Fake Products

The emergence of fake and counterfeit products due to growing demand is emerging as a major challenge for the global hand sanitizer market. Counterfeit hand sanitizers are not subject to quality checks by regulatory bodies; therefore, they do not protect against the COVID-19 virus. Despite this, their market presence is steadily improving due to their low prices compared to branded products, especially in middle- and low-income countries. Consequently, genuine manufacturers are hindered from growing their markets, which negatively impacts their revenue.


Impact of COVID-19 on Global Hand Sanitizer Market

The global hand sanitizer market witnessed tremendous growth after the COVID-19 outbreak. Government and non-government organizations recommended frequent hand-washes to prevent the virus from spreading. Since, soap and water proved to be quite harsh on natural skin, hand sanitizers with a minimum of 60% alcohol, emerged as an effective alternative for getting rid of germs that cause COVID-19. Furthermore, the use of hand sanitizers witnessed a sharp surge in the hospitals and other healthcare facilities to prevent COVID-19 transmission, due to which the market registered significant growth.

Global Hand Sanitizer Market - By Product Form

Based on product form, the global hand sanitizer market is segmented into foam, gel, and liquid. As gel hand sanitizers are easier to apply on hands and fingers, they hold the highest market share and are considered to be more effective for protection from germs. Moreover, a majority of handy bottled hand sanitizers available in the market are in gel form, which spurs the market's growth. However, the foam and the liquid-based hand sanitizer segment is anticipated to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period as such sanitizers can easily spread over the hands.

Global Hand Sanitizer Market - By Distribution Channel

Based on distribution channels, the global hand sanitizer market is segmented into pharmacy stores, supermarkets/hypermarkets, online retail channels, and others. The supermarkets/hypermarkets segment accounts for the largest market share due to the availability of a wide range of products by various brands under one roof. Additionally, the inclusion of hand sanitizer as a daily-use item in the supermarkets/hypermarkets segment has encouraged the growth of the sector.

Global Hand Sanitizer Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global hand sanitizer market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. North America accounts for the largest market share because of the presence of leading hand sanitizer brands which improves product accessibility. Furthermore, growing awareness regarding personal hygiene and the rising use of hand sanitizers in institutions and public spaces such as schools, hospitals, offices, restaurants, etc., are also driving the growth of the global hand sanitizer market.
