Driving Factors

Increasing hygiene consciousness amongst people to drive growth during the forecast period. The global economy's expansion has resulted in a changing lifestyle and a higher standard of living, as well as the adoption of a health-conscious approach to life. This increases the use of personal care products for health protection. Moreover, the prevalence of hospitals and clinical facilities is expected to increase demand for sanitary products, as various hygiene and personal care products are primarily used in hospitals to maintain sanitation and a germ-free environment. Additionally, growing infrastructure facilities such as schools and colleges, hotels and restaurants, corporations, and residences are increasing demand for the products. In addition, increasing awareness of the necessity of sanitation through various promotional campaigns via websites, radio, television, social media sites, print media, and other are likely to increase the use of palm and finger-cleansing groceries.

 

Restraining Factors        

The increased cost of materials used in the production of washers, such as glycerin, fragrances, sodium lauryl, ether sulfate, and others, causes delays in the production procedure. Higher-cost raw materials are expected to result in higher product pricing, which is likely to reduce demand for the products. Furthermore, the availability of substitutes such as sanitizers, soaps, and hand wipes, among others, would hinder the market growth.
