The North America hand sanitizer market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Hand sanitizer is an effective alternative to soap and water in killing infectious agents or pathogens that can be transmitted via hands. Additionally, hand sanitizers offer high portability and provide convenient usage at remote places where soap and water are inaccessible. Based on such benefits, it is widely used across educational institutes, healthcare facilities, eateries, public places, and households across North America.
Since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, has exponentially augmented the usage of hand sanitizers for curbing the risks of infection. As of mid-April 2020, The United States represented the epicenter of the global coronavirus outbreak with nearly 650,000 infections and over 32,000 deaths. Canada during the same period had over 28,000 cases and over 1000 deaths. This has resulted in a sharp increase in the demand of hand sanitizers across the region. Furthermore, the increasing consumer awareness towards maintaining good personal hygiene has also led to growing product utilization among the region’s population. Additionally, easy availability of hand sanitizers coupled with rising online sales through e-commerce channels, such as Amazon, eBay, etc., are also driving the market for hand sanitizers in North America. Moreover, due to the changing consumer preferences, several manufacturers are introducing innovative product variants in the form of sprays, wipes, foam, etc., with pleasant fragrances, thereby attracting a wider customer base. In line with this, the rising influx of organic products has also led to the launch of newer products in the market. For instance, a Los Angeles-based personal care company, Vegamore, has recently launched organic hand sanitizer spray that is 100% vegan with natural ingredients, such as marula oil and aloe-vera. Moreover, growing number of promotional campaigns, such as the “Clean Hands” campaign by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with several initiatives by North American authorities, FDA and WHO, for creating awareness related to hand hygiene has further augmented the demand for hand sanitizers in the region.
