Increased hygiene awareness has contributed to a high global demand for hygiene products. This, in turn, has contributed to the growth of the global hygiene adhesives market. Factors such as the increased sale of baby diapers, the rise in disposable income levels, the advent of online shopping, and comparable prices of product offerings have contributed to an increase in demand for hygiene adhesives. These factors have contributed to extensive research on hygiene maintenance and hygiene-related health issues.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for additives, adhesives, and sealants, “The increase in hygiene consciousness can be attributed to factors such as urbanization, increased influx and migration of populations, and the advent of the social media. This has positively impacted the market for hygiene adhesives.”
