Growing Demand for Hand Sanitizer Creating $2.14 Billion Opportunity

With a pandemic still making its way around the world, there’s been substantial demand for hand sanitizer. In fact, according to Fior Markets, as noted by Beauty Packaging, demand increased by 1,400% between December 2019 and February 2020. However, that may only be the start of a bigger boom in demand. The global hand sanitizer market is expected to explode from $1.2 billion in 2019 to more than $2.14 billion by 2027.

Demand increased after the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. It’s also been reported that “In the absence of a vaccine or effective antiviral drugs, hand hygiene is a mainstay of efforts to prevent the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19,” reports Medical News Today. That news is opening a wide range of opportunity for companies like The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS)(OTC:BOSQF), Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Kimberly Clark Corp. (NYSE:KMB), Clorox Co. (NYSE:CLX), and Kroger Co. (NYSE:KR).
