The COVID-19 virus was novel and hence the government organizations across the globe published guidelines to maintain hygiene with the use of sanitizer and soaps more often which created a wide gap between supply and demand of hygiene products including hand sanitizer, toilet paper and so on.

The global hygiene product industry is segmented based on product type into sanitizer, soap, and tissues.

The increasing share of the sanitizer segment is mainly due to the portability offered by the sanitizers as it can be used anytime and anywhere.

In the US people have already taken to storing hand sanitizer, canned goods, and other emergency rations and as a result, there was a huge shortage of these materials in the country. Additionally, Europe was also facing the same shortage of hygiene products especially sanitizers. Therefore, several breweries and distilleries in Europe are switching to produce hand sanitizers.

Key companies getting affected in the market include 3M, Byotrol, Essity, Fujian Heng Group, Unilever, ITC, Johnson & Johnson, and Procter & Gamble. Hygiene product companies such as Procter & Gamble have experienced record sales of their hygiene product including sanitizers.
