India Hand Sanitizer Market to Reach US$ 105.3 Million by 2032, Propelled by Rising Health Consciousness Among the Masses

September 18, 2023 | Retail

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Hand Sanitizer Market Report by Type (Alcohol-Based, Non-Alcoholic), Ingredient (Natural, Organic, Synthetic), Product Form (Gel, Liquid, Foam, Spray, and Others), Pack Size (Small, Medium, Large), Distribution Channel (Pharmacies, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Departmental Stores, Online, and Others), End-Use (Hospitals, Households, Restaurants and Hotels, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the India hand sanitizer market size reached US$ 142.1 Million in 2023. Hand sanitizer is a liquid or gel formulation containing alcohol, typically ethyl or isopropyl alcohol, along with other ingredients such as water, glycerin, and fragrance. It is designed to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms on the hands when soap and water are not readily available. Hand sanitizers are highly convenient and portable, making them an effective option for maintaining hand hygiene on the go. They are commonly used to reduce the risk of spreading germs, including bacteria and viruses, particularly in situations where handwashing is impractical or not possible. Regular use of hand sanitizer can help minimize the transmission of infectious diseases and promote good hand hygiene practices, especially in settings such as healthcare facilities, public spaces, and during outbreaks or pandemics.

India Hand Sanitizer Market Trends:

In India, the increasing consumer awareness and emphasis on personal hygiene and sanitation, particularly in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Consumers are now more conscious of the importance of maintaining hand hygiene and are incorporating hand sanitizers into their daily routines. Moreover, several favorable initiatives and regulations by the Government of India promoting hand hygiene are propelling the market growth. Along with this, numerous government campaigns, guidelines, and public health awareness programs emphasizing the importance of hand sanitization have accelerated the product adoption rate. Additionally, the rising awareness about the convenience and portability of hand sanitizers is augmenting the market growth. Besides this, hand sanitizers offer an on-the-go solution for hand hygiene when soap and water are not readily available. In line with this, the escalating demand for hand sanitizers by individuals in various settings, including households, healthcare facilities, offices, and public spaces, as they offer ease of use and accessibility represents another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the expanding presence of a wide range of hand sanitizer brands and product variants, such as alcohol-based, herbal, and organic options, is contributing to the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 105.3 Million by 2032.
