Top Manufacturers in the Hand Sanitizer Industry

The global hand sanitizer market reached US$ 4.20 Billion in 2020. With the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Wuhan city, hand sanitizers witness surging demand in China and then the rest of the world. As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top hand sanitizer manufacturers are introducing hand sanitizers infused with floral and fruity fragrances, such as strawberry, green apple, litchi and orange, along with novel hands-free automatic sensor-based and foot-operated dispensers. Besides this, the rising consumer concerns about the negative health impact of chemical-based sanitizers have led to the growing popularity of organic products. Moreover, several product manufacturers are developing easy-to-use and portable foam and gel-based sanitizers in sachets and mini-bottles, driving the market for hand sanitizers worldwide.
