Growing Popularity of Eco-friendly Products

Liquid hand washes have become increasingly popular in the past 15 years, both in the home and public places such as hospitals and toilets. Some people find them drying on the skin and experience skin irritation after using them. This is known as contact dermatitis and is particularly common in those wh- regularly use liquid hand washes as part of their job, perhaps in a hospital or kitchen, where cleanliness is vital. Many companies are now creating cleaning products that use more natural ingredients, avoiding harmful chemicals. Sustainable toiletries formulated with organic and natural ingredients that are kinder t- the skin are in high demand. The increasing popularity of organic sanitizers, which are eco-friendly, skin-safe, and sustainable, is als- likely t- influence professional hygiene market growth due t- safety concerns associated with the use of soaps and alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

IoT Revolutionizing Automatic Soap Dispensers

Vendors in the automatic soap dispenser segment connect IoT (Internet of Things) devices t- their products, providing a sanitary no-touch experience without water and soap solution spillage. This has enabled more benefits t- users, such as ensuring that people wash their hands properly for 20 seconds as per WH- recommendations. Automation in soap dispensers due t- IoT gives a premium feel and helps maintain top-notch hygiene. The latest IoT-automatic soap dispensers are designed with sensors that will dispense the hand wash liquid in the precise quantity as programmed in the device. This is considered a 100% safe method t- handle the device, and very minimal wastage of resources occurs.

Infectious Disease Outbreaks Across the World

Several infectious diseases are contagious and transmissible. The world of infectious diseases is constantly evolving, including infections at the global and national levels. The possibility of an unknown pathogen emerging and causing havoc is increasing. Disease outbreaks are mainly due t- an infection or transmitted via animal-to-person contact, from the environment, or person-to-person contact. The majority of these diseases can be prevented by maintaining hand hygiene. A growing number of outbreaks has made people aware of hygiene, thereby supporting the growth of the professional hygiene market. Since December 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread t- several countries, leading t- millions of cases. COVID-19 has spread t- several regions worldwide, impacting the demand for sensor-based professional hygiene products at an exponential rate.



The global professional hygiene market by product is segmented int- tissues & napkins, soaps & sanitizers, and wiping & cleaning. Tissues and napkins are leading the product segment, which can be attributable t- their increasing use in the hospitality sector and tourism industries. Rising hygiene concerns in public places are driving the tissue paper demand at a faster rate. Over the past three decades, the global tissue sector has undergone strong growth, capacity building, and consolidation.

Cleaning and sanitizing are basic steps in these sectors.

In contrast, one can boost sales in small retail shops or departmental stores through better relations (offers and product promotions) with such retailers.

• North America accounted for the largest revenue share of the global professional hygiene market in 2022, owing t- the increasing luxurious hotel industry, international tourism arrivals, and health hygiene awareness. The US and Canada lead in the highest international sports events, trade fairs, and exhibitions, contributing t- the region’s growing international tourism arrivals. In addition, the increasing prevalence of HAIs in the healthcare segment is one of the major reasons demanding the usage of soaps & sanitizers, wiping, and cleaning products.
• The US was the highest hit country with COVID-19, which fueled the overall professional hygiene industry growth. Also, the growing hand hygiene awareness by the government contributed t- the growth of the sanitizer segment in the United States. For instance, the U.S. CDC campaign ’Clean Hands Count’ encourages and empowers patients t- ask healthcare providers whether they washed their hands. With support from GOJ- Industries, the CDC Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion announced a hand hygiene campaign in 2016 called Clean Hands Count.
