The coronavirus outbreak is a major driver for the growth of the sanitizers market during the period.Hygiene is an important part of safety against the protection of coronavirus and staying healthy.

Therefore the demand for sanitizers has grown tremendously post the COVID-19 outbreak globally, since the outbreak of the virus in China as sanitizers are effective against coronavirus.Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol, as the preferred form of hand hygiene in healthcare settings.

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, more than 1,500 additional manufacturers have registered with the agency to meet the increased demand for hand sanitizers. Hence, the COVID-19 outbreak coupled with growing concerns for hygiene is anticipated to escalate the demand for sanitizers during the year 2020 and in years to come ahead.

Health hazards associated with occupational exposure to chemicals used in sanitizers manufacturing are expected to limit the growth of the sanitizers market.According to Reuters’s health news on chemicals sanitizers and disinfectants linked to thyroid cancer, the workers who are exposed to chemicals or biocides used in the production of sanitizers, disinfectants, and deodorizers are likely to diagnose with a 65% higher risk of thyroid cancer.

Moreover, companies such as Radio Khaitan and Bacardi, manufacturers of alcoholic drinks have turned into Sanitizer producers amid the COVID-19 outbreak.This step was taken for companies’ contributions during the coronavirus pandemic to meet the increasing demand for hand Sanitizers for health and hygiene.
