Rise in Number of Healthcare-associated Infections

According to the US CDC estimates, 1.7 million cases of Healthcare-associated Infections(HAI) occur in the US annually. These HAIs are a major challenge for both healthcare receivers/patients and healthcare providers. According to estimates, every 1 in 25 patients seeking medical treatment in a hospital is subjected to HAIs in the US. This potential economic impact of these HAIs goes up to $46 billion every year on the US healthcare system. The US CDC emphasizes hospitals to follow its hand hygiene recommendations to prevent HAIs. Japan is focusing its efforts to promote proper hand hygiene among healthcare workers, and this has been an important component of efforts to prevent healthcare-associated infections in the country. Hand sanitizers are one of the best available options for healthcare providers to avoid HAIs and reduce associated costs. All these factors are expected to drive the demand for hand sanitizers among healthcare facilities during the forecast period.
