The report gives a comprehensive analysis of the Hand hygiene market of India. Traditionally, the conventional methods include washing hands with soil, ash, and water but these methods were not proven as they only clean the hands but they didn't sanitize them. With swaying time, people started using the soaps for washing hands but they were also not hygienic due to the frequent touching. Moreover, the world was also facing the outbreaks of communicable diseases such as H1N1 Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Smallpox, Measles, Ebola virus, Marburg, Hantaviruses, and the recent one, COVID 19 coronavirus. It became very necessary to maintain health and hygiene to overcome these diseases. Hence, the necessity of hand hygiene products such as liquid hand wash and hand sanitizers emerged in the modern world.

The hand hygiene products are bifurcated into the categories of liquid hand wash and hand sanitizers. The liquid hand wash is soap-based and is largely used to clean hands with water. The liquid hand wash also removes the dirt and microorganisms from the hands performing the dual action of cleaning and sanitizing. They are available in herbal and non-herbal forms with varying colors and flavors and are majorly used by the institutional and residential segments. The hand sanitizers are alcohol-based and are largely preferred by the ones who cannot choose the frequent washing of hands. The hand sanitizers come in various forms such as liquid gel, spray, and foam. They are also available in non-alcohol based or herbal based for those who are conscious of the harmful chemicals. They are largely used by the institutional and residential segments.

Whilst the global trends will drive the market, the efforts from the Indian Government such as Swach Bharat Abhiyaan, Swastha Bharat, etc. will encourage the people to use hand hygiene products. The Indian Hand hygiene market is expected to reach INR 2159.5 crore by the year 2025 registering a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 9%. The Reckitt Benckiser with its brand name Dettol and the Hindustan Unilever Limited with its brand name Lifebuoy are the two leading players in the hand hygiene market of India. Other brands such as Savlon, Medimix, Palmolive, Protekt, Fem, etc are also having a consistent market share in the total hand hygiene market of India.
