COVID-19 Outbreak to drive the Europe Alcoholic Hand Sanitizer Market during the forecast period 2021-2026. Europe Alcoholic Hand Sanitizer Market size is $2.6 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026.

The latest epidemic of the coronavirus COVID-19 has fuelled a massive increase in demand for hand sanitizers and other related cleaning items all over the world. Coronavirus COVID-19 is mainly transmitted from person to person by direct contact with an infectious organism or indirect contact with polluted surfaces in the immediate area, since it is a respiratory infection. The use of hand sanitizer in particular has become the "new standard," and demand for it shows no signs of abating. According to WHO, there have been 167,252,150 confirmed cases of COVID-19 registered as of May 25, 2021, with 3,467,663 deaths. As of May 23, 2021, there were 54,147,649 covid-19 cases registered in Europe. Moreover, Norovirus is the most frequent cause of viral gastroenteritis in people of all ages. It is spread when people do not wash their hands and it can spread rapidly across large numbers of people living in close quarters. This is why, when one person becomes sick, it is common for whole families or workplaces to become ill as well. Respiratory infections are typically transmitted by droplets inhaled, sneezed, or coughed into the air by an infected person. Although sneezing and coughing contribute to the transmission of infection, inadequate hand washing procedures are also a major factor. Norovirus is the most prevalent cause of viral gastroenteritis (diarrhoea and vomiting) in England and Wales, according to Public Health England (PHE), and the same is undoubtedly true in most other European countries. There were 1 123 hospital outbreaks (688 confirmed) and 14 recorded prison outbreaks of Norovirus in England from week 27 in 2010 to week 24 in 2011. WHO has identified formulations for their local preparation to assist countries and health-care facilities in achieving framework reform and adopting alcohol-based hand sanitizers as the gold standard for hand hygiene in healthcare. Before recommending such formulations for use worldwide, WHO carefully considered logistical, economic, safety, cultural, and religious considerations. At the moment, alcohol-based hand sanitizers are the only known way to inactivate a wide range of potentially dangerous microorganisms on hands quickly and efficiently.

Alcohol-based sanitizers are disinfectants that are used to scrub household goods, materials, human hands, and other surfaces. They're built on poisonous chemicals like iodine, chlorine, phenol, and quaternary ammonium compounds and are highly effective against dangerous microorganisms like bacteria. Unsurprisingly, demand for sanitizers and grooming devices has skyrocketed since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. A hand sanitizer, also known as a hand wipe, is an antiseptic solution that is added to the hands to kill disease-causing pathogens. It's made up of alcohol, water, emollients, polyacrylates, artificial and natural paints, and fragrances, and comes in foam, gel, and liquid forms. Ethanol and isopropanol, which are used in hand sanitizers, immediately denature proteins and dissolve the lipid-based coatings of bacteria and viruses. The additives are carried by the water, which binds with the hydrogel. Emollients and other additives are added in limited amounts to shield the skin from alcohol-induced dryness, neutralize the acidic effects of polyacrylate, and improve the product's scent and appearance. Alcohol-free versions are currently affordable, and they're made of glycerin, thickening agents, and disinfectants like benzalkonium chloride (BAC) and other antimicrobials. Good hygiene and cleaning activities are important in preventing the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. As a result of the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic, global demand for sanitizers has risen as sanitizers (containing at least 60% alcohol) are incredibly effective. The need for hand sanitizers is expected to rise as a result of various other disease outbreaks and public health campaigns.

Europe Alcoholic Hand Sanitizer Market – Drivers

Growing Health Consciousness:

The rising prevalence of numerous gastrointestinal, respiratory, and skin infections among the general public supports the growing demand for hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers containing alcohol will reduce the spread of infectious bacteria and viruses on the skin and palms of the hands, lowering the risk of stomach infections, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Hand sanitizers, as opposed to conventional hand washes and soaps, provide additives that can help to reduce dryness and inflammation on the hands. Manufacturers are working on sanitizers that use pure and organic materials that are non-toxic and do not cause allergies. Moreover, the worldwide epidemic of multiple influenza viruses, the most recent and lethal of which was COVID-19, prompted consumers to take more protective steps in terms of personal hygiene.
