Report Summary

Discover the latest global trends and patent insights across the hand sanitiser market. Our forward looking report identifies areas which are evolving, consumer attitudes, important advances and patent data across this market.

What consumers want and why

The COVID-19 outbreak increased awareness among global consumers about the importance of hand hygiene. As a result, there has been a great increase in demand for broad spectrum microbicidal hand sanitisers that meet recognised efficacy standards (ASTM or EN).

Product innovation trends

Innovation in this domain is driven by the growing popularity of hand sanitisers/handrubs to reduce the risk of spreading disease. Along with broad spectrum microbicidal activity, consumers seek sanitisers that are gentle on skin.

The patent landscape

Recent patents for hand sanitisers elaborate on compositions’ microbicidal efficacy based on common standards (ASTM or EN). Researchers are exploring natural ingredients to improve antimicrobial activity and reduce skin irritation due to prolonged use of hand sanitiser.
