INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The North America hospital hand hygiene market accounted for the largest share in 2019. Canada is likely to experience healthy growth during the forecast period. The growth in the region is mainly attributed to the increasing incidence of several acute and chronic diseases such as CVDs, cancer, diabetes, and pneumonia, the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure, and increasing concerns about safety and hygiene practices. Besides, before the COVID-19 pandemic, the US CDC reported the flu season in 2018 to be the worst in this decade and have asked people to take extra precautions with infectious diseases. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has badly hit healthcare settings in the US, which, in turn, has caused the death of close to 600 healthcare professionals in the US by July 2020.

INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
The global hospital hand hygiene market is currently highly fragmented, with many local players in the market. 3M and Reckitt Benckiser are the key leading vendors. Although the market is characterized by the presence of diversified global and regional vendors, regional vendors would be finding it increasingly difficult to compete with them. We believe that global players can grow inorganically by acquiring regional or local players in the future. Further, companies with better technical and financial resources can develop innovative products. Therefore, vendors are remaining abreast of upcoming technology to have a competitive advantage over their rivals. The global hospital hand hygiene market is dominated by the influx of domestic players, including small-scale proprietorship firms. Several domestic players are expected to expand their presence worldwide during the forecast period due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in APAC and Latin America, which are fast-developing economies in to gain market share.
