South America, Middle East And Africa Hand Sanitizer Market Outlook, 2027
According to the report titled, “South America, Middle East and Africa Hand Sanitizer Market Outlook, 2027”, published by Bonafide Research market of the South America & Middle East Africa is expected to grow in future due to the rising awareness and efforts, accounting to a market value of almost USD 0.70 Billion in the year of 2021. The trending products of the South America & Middle East Africa markets are the gel and liquid hand sanitizers. As people here are less aware of the brands and products, foam and spray hand sanitizers are having the least demand. Moreover, other products such as hand sanitizing wipes are growing in the market but at a slower pace. People have been using hygiene products for a longer time but they are less aware of the forms, types, and usage of such products. The market for hand sanitizers are growing in the region with the growing awareness that and hygiene is known to be effective in preventing community-acquired infections. The market growth is also attributed by the convenient packaging offering by the manufacturers and its quick effectiveness over normal soaps. The manufacturers in the region are also bringing various innovations in the products such as packaging innovations, natural ingredients etc. to get a grip over the market. Hand sanitizer comes in two types alcohol-based and alcohol-free. Many people prefer alcohol-based hand sanitizer, because of their prolonged efficacy. The alcohol-free hand sanitizer also protects your hands without drying them. However, alcohol-based hand sanitizer which contains 60-65% alcohol is always best when compared with other types. Furthermore, FDA also has shown that alcohol-based hand sanitizer reduces much flu like contagious diseases and infections. Alcohol-free hand sanitizers contain quaternary ammonium compounds (called benzalkonium chloride) instead of alcohol to reduce microbes. These agents are less effective than alcohol.
Alcohol-free hand sanitizers do not dry out hands and they create little foam after rubbing hands. These factors has led to the rise in popularity of alcohol based sanitizers in the region. Several schools and educational institutions in the country also observe the ‘global handwashing day,’ which is encouraging children to follow hand hygiene. The WHO has also laid certain guidelines regarding hand hygiene. These are to be stringently adhered to by people working in the healthcare sector. This has presented an enormous growth opportunity for vendors operating in the hand sanitizer market to pitch in with their wide range of products. Moreover, promoting their products with the help of health & hand hygiene campaigns would help them advance their base in this market.
The South American Region is facing an economic crisis for many years which makes its market grow at a slower or developing pace. On the other side, the Middle East & African markets are having limited products as people here are less aware of their hygiene. In the case of African countries, the disposable income of people is so low that most of them cannot buy hygiene products for a longer period. Hence, in a nutshell, these regions need to be developed in terms of campaigning and marketing to bring awareness among the people to switch over the products such as hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers are available in forms of gel, liquid, foam, spray, and other products such as hand sanitizing wipes. They are also available with infused essential oils such as lavender, rosemary, clove, cinnamon, mint, etc. which gives an aftereffect of fragrance post-application.
Initially, ethyl alcohol is recommended in hospital practice in Brazil for hygienic handwashing because of its effectiveness and low cost. The major disadvantage of alcohol for skin antisepsis is its drying effect. Hand sanitizers has emollients to minimize skin drying and this was the major reason for the adoption of hand sanitizer among Brazilian especially in hospitals. Moreover, the initiatives by the government to maintain a hygiene environment, for instance, in line with the guidelines of the World Health Organization, the global challenges for hygiene was studied and implemented in Brazil by the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA). The government implemented Patient Safety Protocols, which included recommendations for hand hygiene.
The market in the region following the global trend was affected by the pandemic in majorly positive manner. The product studied in the report became an essential item to curb the spread of the virus. This innate property of Sanitizers helped extremely in growing the market revenue and growth rate. On the other hand some consumers who didn’t want to use chemicals during this time along with the hinderance of supply chain and production process declined the market growth rate.
