The global hospital hand hygiene market is currently highly fragmented, with many local players in the market. 3M and Reckitt Benckiser are the key leading vendors. Although the market is characterized by the presence of diversified global and regional vendors, regional vendors would be finding it increasingly difficult to compete with them. We believe that global players can grow inorganically by acquiring regional or local players in the future. Further, companies with better technical and financial resources can develop innovative products. Therefore, vendors are remaining abreast of upcoming technology to have a competitive advantage over their rivals.

The global hospital hand hygiene market is dominated by the influx of domestic players, including small-scale proprietorship firms. Several domestic players are expected to expand their presence worldwide during the forecast period due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in APAC and Latin America, which are fast-developing economies in to gain market share.
