DUBLIN 2, Ireland - Sept. 18, 2020 - PRLog -- Globally, the coronavirus pandemic has generated a decline in the growth of the personal care industry. However, in the case of hand soap stocks, growing consumer preference for products with low risk of contamination, is helping to sustain demand. Further, panic buying behavior has substantially bolstered demand. Hand hygiene directives by regulatory bodies will keep up demand in the foreseeable future.

Growth in the sales of personal hygiene products and the development of specialized formulations for various skin types are anticipated to generate key opportunities according to a recent report by Fact.MR. The global hand soap market will witness strong growth in the coming years by marketing and branding efforts through the different media channels.

"Leading FMCG manufacturers have set up dedicated initiatives to handle the covid-19 outbreak, by minimizing the costs of their offerings. In addition, manufacturers are also creating hand soap donation programs for low income sections of society, who are susceptible to the epidemic," says the Fact.MR report.
