Customers are becoming increasingly aware of the significance of personal hygiene, which is expected to further boost the hand sanitizer market growth.

COVID-19 Pandemic Augmented Demand for Hand Sanitizing Solutions to Avoid Getting Infected

The COVID-19 pandemic created a period of boom for the hand sanitizer industry as the outbreak was instrumental in boosting the awareness regarding the importance of maintaining a proper hygiene routine. Since more people became aware of the infection-fighting capabilities of hand sanitizing solutions, their demand skyrocketed during this period. Hand sanitizers can effectively protect users against viruses and bacteria including COVID-19. Moreover, as lockdowns and other movement restrictions were eased, offices and educational institutions were reopened, which further fueled the demand for hand sanitizing solutions.
