Introduction to Automated Hand Sanitizer Vending Machines
Automated hand sanitizer vending machines are defined as an electronic device which is designed to dispense a controlled amount of sanitizing solution in the hand. Automated hand sanitizer vending machines functions similarly to that of a smart soap dispenser and are used with the aim to conserve the amount of sanitizing solution used as well as to limit the transmission of infectious diseases. The device senses the presence of the hand near the spout with the help of the sensors present in the device and then it automatically dispenses the sanitizing solution in the hand. Automated hand sanitizer vending machines are also termed as touch free hand sanitizer dispenser and sensor-based sanitizer dispenser.
Market Size and Forecast
The global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market is thriving on the back of growing demand for healthcare services around the globe, which is also raising the need for automated dispensing systems that help to raise the quality of healthcare services provided to patients around the world. Backed by the increasing population worldwide, the need for healthcare services is a basic routine for individuals. Increasing affordable healthcare plans that are available around the world, and are also offered by several governments of nations, help people to access to the healthcare services. Such factors are raising the need for the deployment of automated hand sanitizer vending machines. Moreover, increasing concern for the global pandemic, COVID-19, that has affected several human lives globally, has raised the necessity to deploy touch free automated dispensing machines, as the disease is known to be a communicable disease. Additionally, the increasing trade of sanitizers is also anticipated to promote towards the growth of the global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market. According to the statistics by the International Trade Center, exports of organic surface-active agents, such as sanitizers, increased from USD 24,190,461 thousand in the year 2010 to USD 31,150,804 thousand in the year 2019 globally.
The global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market is anticipated to grow with a robust CAGR throughout the forecast period, i.e. 2020-2028. The market is segmented by installation type into fixed and portable. The fixed segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share on the back of increasing deployment of fixed automated hand sanitizer vending machines in public places and commercial places, backed by the need to dispense a large quantity of sanitizing solution. The market is also segmented by dispenser type into liquid, gel and foam, out of which, the liquid segment is anticipated to hold the largest market share on the back of the increasing popularity of liquid sanitizers across end user applications.
Increasing Awareness for Automated Hand Sanitizer Vending Machines to Promote Market Growth
COVID-19 pandemic has no doubt affected businesses worldwide, but it has also given birth to several business opportunities worldwide. One of the most promising areas of growth is observed in the healthcare industry, which has raised the necessity for quality healthcare services. Moreover, the pandemic has also promoted the need for several healthcare accessories and equipment, one such being the automated hand sanitizer vending machines. COVID-19 disease is a communicable disease, and hence it requires extreme precaution to avoid its transmission through surface contact. Moreover, the World Health Organization (WHO) has directed guidelines that state the use of hand sanitizers wherever access to soap and water is unavailable. Owing to such factors, the utilization of hand sanitizers has increased massively in public places, especially in commercial places, such as hospitals, offices, industries and others, thereby raising the need for the deployment of automated hand sanitizer vending machines, that can dispense hand sanitizers automatically without touching the surface of the dispenser, which ultimately reduces the transmission of the diseases through surface contact.
COVID-19 Pandemic to Promote Growth of the Market
The sudden spread of the disease COVID-19 globally has raised the necessity for the deployment of automated hand sanitizer vending machines. The increase in demand for such a device has also resulted in the shortage of the device, leading to a huge gap between the demand and supply of automated hand sanitizer vending machines. This gap is anticipated to create significant opportunities for growth of the global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market. Many small and medium manufacturers from different end user industries has further taken this opportunity in the production of automatic hand sanitizer vending machines, especially those whose business aligns with the requirements for manufacturing such a device. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market.
Availability of Counterfeit Products
The science behind the manufacturing of automated hand sanitizer vending machines does not involve complex technological processes and hence, several local players have emerged in the market taking the advantage of the current pandemic situation, making the market highly fragmented and unorganized, which is anticipated to limit the growth of the global automated hand sanitizer vending machine market.
