A hand sanitizer refers to an antiseptic solution applied on the hands to remove disease-causing pathogens from the skin. It is commonly available in foam, gel, spray, or liquid-based variants and consists of alcohol, water, colorants, polyacrylate, fragrances, etc. The alcohol used in hand sanitizers primarily includes ethanol and isopropanol, which instantly destroy lipid-based coatings of certain viruses and bacteria. Emollients and other ingredients are also added in very small amounts to protect the skin from dryness caused by the alcohol and neutralize the acidic effects of polyacrylate. The water acts as a carrier for the ingredients and bonds well with the hydrogel. Alcohol-free variants are also available that are manufactured using glycerin, thickening agents, and disinfectants, such as benzalkonium chloride (BAC) and other antimicrobial agents.
Australia Hand Sanitizer Market Trends:
The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the rising consumer concerns towards hand hygiene, which is primarily driving the demand for hand sanitizers in Australia. In line with this, the growing number of awareness programs by the Australian government aimed at promoting the regular usage of hand sanitizers to combat the spread of coronavirus infection is also propelling the market growth. Moreover, the increasing consumer consciousness towards maintaining personal hygiene and sanitation is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the escalating adoption of hand sanitizers across healthcare facilities to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections is further augmenting the regional market. Apart from this, the growing concerns towards the adverse health impact of chemical-based sanitizers are catalyzing the adoption of organic product variants with natural extracts. Several product manufacturers are launching innovative perfumed-based hand sanitizers infused with fruit and floral fragrances, such as rose, green apple, peach, orange, etc., to cater to diverse consumer preferences. Besides this, the introduction of easy-to-use and portable hand sanitizers in sachets and mini-plastic bottles will continue to drive the market growth in Australia over the coming years.
