Hand hygiene market is booming: report

The global professional hand hygiene market was valued at US$6.18 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$8.18 billion by 2028, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 4.77 per cent.

The expansion of the hospitality and healthcare industries has led to the increased consumption of hand hygiene products, claims market research company Arizton.

And healthcare development is expanding worldwide with countries such as India and China now actively promoting hand hygiene.

The Covid-19 pandemic was claimed to be a major catalyst for growth with a notable surge in demand for sanitisers and disinfectants during the pandemic. But according to the authors, demand for products such as soaps, sanitisers, and disinfectant wipes still remain higher than in the pre-pandemic period.

A preference for foam-based hand hygiene products has emerged over recent years due to their convenience and ease of use. There has also been a growing preference for environmentally-friendly and skin-sensitive products, the authors note.

And the introduction of automated hand hygiene solutions is said to be another significant trend, particularly in professional settings such as healthcare facilities, food service establishments and corporate offices.

The need for more effective and efficient hand hygiene practices - particularly in healthcare - is said to be driving the market as healthcare-associated infections remain a significant concern.

The study also claims that emerging nations are making great strides in healthcare development, with several countries in the Asia-Pacific region beginning to actively promote hand hygiene through the increased installation of handwashing facilities and the provision of an improved water supply.
