Follow us on LinkedIn – Hand sanitizers are disinfectants that offer effective protection against harmful pathogens. The focus on preventing transmission of diseases through hand-to-mouth or hand-to-hand contact underscores the need for better hand hygiene practices. Hand sanitizers are easy-to-use and do not require rinsing of hands, and therefore are expected to promote compliance with hygiene practices. Hand sanitizers are growing in popularity as a result of rising consumer awareness, increasing focus on hand hygiene and threat of diseases like H1N1 flu in several parts of the world. Product innovations such as alcohol free, easy-to-use antibacterial sanitizers in travel packs, and launch of products in convenient form factors such as disinfectant wipes, antibacterial lotions, soaps, and gels are also helping stimulate growth in the market.

Sales in the country which witnessed a strong surge during the 2009 H1N1 crisis, is now slowing down. Demand, nevertheless, continues to be supported by strong marketing and promotional campaigns, well entrenched hygiene practices among the population, introduction of new products, and growing preference for non-alcohol-based hand sanitizers, In developing economies, increase in the number of disease epidemics, changing lifestyles, Westernization of habits, growing awareness over the importance of personal hygiene, and increasing per capita spends on personal care and hygiene products are driving growth.
