The hand sanitizer market in North America was being driven by greater awareness of consumer hygiene and higher living standards in countries like the United States. Just after the COVID-19 pandemic became dominant over the region’s healthcare industry, online retail became the main contributor to hand sanitizer sales.
The consumer, amid the hoarding of values, approached online platforms that not only meet consumer demand, but also facilitated the idea of minimal social exposure. However, with rising demand for disinfectants amid the COVID-19 pandemic, retail prices soared, following a shortage of supply and most retailers sold out.
As a result, many online stores like E-Bay in some countries in the region banned the sale of health care products for hands claiming prices on some lists labeled as high as illegal. However, with government efforts to keep prices under control and meet growing demand for the product, the market experienced strong growth in 2020.
