Rapid Spread of the Coronavirus Pandemic to Accelerate Market Growth

The hand sanitizer market growth has received a major booster shot by the unprecedented rate of spread of COVID-19 worldwide, which has shifted the global focus towards basic hygiene and sanitation practices.

Hand sanitizers are believed to play a central role in bolstering such practices because the COVID-19 infection is lethal and is known to primarily spreading through human-to-human contact. Since hands are generally the first point of contact between two or more people, hand hygiene has become a vital tool in fighting this infection.

The importance of these sanitizers in the current scenario is further augmented by the absence of effective treatment options and vaccine against the coronavirus. As a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been vociferously promoting the use of alcohol-based hand cleansers, especially for frontline healthcare workers. While frequent washing of hands using soap and water for 20 seconds has been found to be effective, they may not always be available and in such cases, these sanitizers can function as an efficient alternative.
