India Hand Sanitizer Market to Reach US$ 96.8 Million by 2027, Augmented by COVID-19 Outbreak

June 08, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Hand Sanitizer Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the India hand sanitizer market reached a value of US$ 166.5 Million in 2021. A hand sanitizer is a disinfecting solution that is applied to the hands to remove infectious agents or pathogens. It comprises alcohol, water, polyacrylates, emollients, artificial and natural colors, and fragrances. It assists in reducing irritation on the skin and sanitizing the hands in less time as compared to conventional methods like hand washing. As a result, it finds application in healthcare facilities, educational institutes, public places, and households across India.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

India Hand Sanitizer Market Trends:

The outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and subsequent lockdowns imposed by the Government of India have resulted in the increasing need for self-preservation methods to prevent the spread of the infection. As a result, there is a considerable surge in the use of hand sanitizers in the country. Apart from this, hand sanitizers are utilized in hospitals and healthcare facilities to prevent the transmission of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). This, along with the introduction of perfumed hand-sanitizers infused with fruits and floral fragrances, such as green apple, rose, orange, peach and sandal, is positively influencing the product sales in India. The leading players are also focusing on introducing sanitizers with natural and organic ingredients to expand their consumer base. Furthermore, the rapid expansion of online retail channels and social media platforms is anticipated to fuel the market growth in the country. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 96.8 Million by 2027.
