The transmission of infectious illnesses, including respiratory infections and other communicable diseases, is significantly reduced by the use of hand sanitizers. Increased incidences of TB, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and pneumonia, among other diseases, are anticipated to create massive growth potential. The surging focus on following hygiene practices, such as hand washing and no-touch hand sanitizing on account of increasing health awareness, is expected to support industry development through 2032.

Ineffectiveness of alcohol-free hand sanitizer to restrict product adoption

To cater to the mounting product demand, some firms are boosting hand sanitizer manufacturing capacity, including alcohol-free hand sanitizer. However, certain governments and healthcare organizations do not recommend using alcohol-free sanitizers, which has hindered hand sanitizer market expansion. For instance, the Australian government discourages its residents from using alcohol-free disinfectants since they are less efficient as compared to alcohol-based disinfectants at preventing the spread of infections. Nevertheless, growing awareness about the benefits of alcohol-based sanitizers may help overcome this restraint in the future.
