Focus on Hand Hygiene Stimulates Growth in the Global Hand Sanitizers Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 05, 2014

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.

As stated by the new market research report on Hand Sanitizers, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. 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. Asia-Pacific is poised to grow at the fastest compounded annual rate of 13.6% over the analysis period.

Major players profiled in the report include 3M Company, Best Sanitizers Inc., Chattem Inc., Dial Corporation, GOJO Industries Inc., Lion Corporation, Medline Industries Inc., Nice-Pak Products Inc., Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser Plc, Skinvisible Inc., Unilever PLC, and Vi-Jon Laboratories Inc., among others.
