How is Rising Prevalence of Infectious Diseases Driving Hand Sanitizer Industry?

Washing hands before eating or after coming from back home from outside is considered to be traits of a well-mannered person. The practice is, of course, related to maintaining good hygiene, since it is through one’s hands that a number of communicable diseases spread. Because of this, it is advisable for people to wash their hands frequently, to make sure that the germs from their hand don’t transfer to the body. Now with the surging pollution all across the globe, the need for keeping hands clean has risen significantly. However, it is quite impossible to carry a soap everywhere, which is why people are increasingly adopting hand sanitizers.

Such products effectively kill pathogenic microorganisms on the hands and palms, due to which the hand sanitizer market is witnessing rapid growth. Most of the infectious diseases spread through contaminated water, and if the hands are not cleaned after coming in its contact, pathogens can be transmitted inside the body, after the unclean hands come in contact with mouth and eyes. Some of the most common and often-deadly diseases that are caused by contaminated water include salmonella, typhoid, E. coli, gastroenteritis, dysentery, hepatitis A, giardia, and cholera.

In addition to this, a number of diseases are spread through nasal droplets, of which coronavirus is the latest example. More often than not, people use their hands to cover their nose and mouth while sneezing or coughing, after which the germs from the hands can be easily transmitted to any surface that the person touches. In this scenario, if another person comes in contact with the same surface, it is highly likely that he/she will be infected with the disease. COVID-19 has thus become a major factor for the rising demand for hand sanitizers.
