Competitive landscape

Key players in launching products targeted for COVID-19

Demand for hand sanitizers has seen an astronomical rise in recent months as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. This has encouraged fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies to develop hygiene products tailored to combat the spread of the pandemic and also in line with WHO guidelines.

A key market opportunity

Rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic to accelerate market growth

The growth of the hand sanitizer market has been greatly stimulated by the unprecedented spread of COVID-19 around the world, which has shifted the global focus to basic hygiene and sanitation practices. Hand sanitizers are thought to play a central role in strengthening such practices because COVID-19 infection is deadly and is known to spread primarily through human contact. Since hands are generally the first point of contact for two or more people, hand hygiene has become a vital tool in the fight against this infection.

The importance of these disinfectants in the current scenario is further increased by the lack of effective treatment options and coronavirus vaccines. As a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) is loudly promoting the use of alcohol-based hand cleansers, especially for first-line health workers. Although frequent washing of hands with soap and water for 20 seconds is effective, they may not always be available, and in such cases these disinfectants can function as an effective alternative.
