Dublin, Oct. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "United States Healthcare Wipes Market 2022-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Demand for wipes used in healthcare settings is expected to increase 2.7% per year to $635 million in 2026. Growth will come mostly from increasing unit sales, which will accelerate as healthcare operations return to pre-pandemic levels. Other factors supporting market growth include:
an aging population and increasing need for senior care, which will boost demand for patient care wipes because they are often used to bathe seniors with mobility issues
an increase in surgeries, spurring demand for skin disinfectant wipes
ongoing concerns about cross-contamination and HAIs, promoting demand for hard surface disinfectant wipes
In addition, product innovations will encourage new adoptions of wipes in certain healthcare applications, such as skin-contact and disinfectant wipes.
Healthcare Wipe Demand Was Stronger in 2021 Following Mixed 2020 Performance
The market for healthcare wipes in both unit and value terms grew in 2021 following a depressed 2020 (attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic):
While demand for surface disinfectant wipes spiked in 2020 to combat the coronavirus, a decrease in surgical procedures caused demand for skin disinfectants to decline, weakening overall growth.
In 2021, the healthcare wipes market expanded robustly as facilities were able to operate in more normal capacities.
Going forward, it is expected that demand for products like surface disinfectant wipes will remain above pre-pandemic levels. Additionally, demand will be supported by increases in healthcare spending prompted by an aging population and an uptick in surgical procedures, as well as an anticipated rise in births.
Among Applications, Patient Care Wipes to Account for Largest Absolute Gains
Patient care wipes are projected to account for 67% of total market gains, driven primarily by the aging US population and the prevalent use of personal bathing wipes in senior-oriented healthcare. As this segment of the population continues to increase in size, the market for senior care will expand, in turn boosting healthy gains for personal bathing and other patient care wipes. Growth will also result from continued product innovation, such as the development of substrates and chemicals that are gentler or more eco-friendly.
Product Innovations Continue to Promote Sales
Product development efforts will continue to promote demand growth for healthcare wipes, with enhanced disinfection capabilities and increased gentleness (of both substrates and chemicals) among the key areas of focus. For example:
In late 2020, Ecolab launchedDisinfectant 1wipes, which are formulated to kill 44 pathogens in one minute.
In 2021, GOJO Industries introducedPURELLprofessional surface disinfecting wipes, which can eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 virus in 30 seconds.
Kimberly-Clark'sHuggies Natural Careextra sensitive wipes, which were designed in partnership with neonatal intensive care unit nurses, are intended to be extremely gentle on the delicate skin of premature infants.

As 2023 starts gearing up for the long haul, Wall Street is still taking a bearish view of the markets. We’re still dealing with the same headwinds, a combination of stubbornly high inflation, rapidly rising interest rates, gloomy economic indicators, the continuing war in Ukraine, uncertainty over China’s lockdown policies, a supply chain that is only slowly unsnarling itself… the list can go on.

For Citi customers with a sizable sum on hand, opening a new savings account can deliver just that — but, of course, not without significant hurdles. Like many bank accounts these days, the Citi® Savings Account comes with the promise of a hefty sign-up bonus — up to $3,500 — for simply opening a new account and “completing required activities.” Chanelle Bessette, banking specialist at NerdWallet, says offerings like these, albeit eye-catching at first glance, show just why it’s critical to read the fine print.
The big market headline last year has been the steady fall in stocks. The S&P 500 tumbled 19% for 2022, and the NASDAQ has fallen a disastrous 33%. And while recent data shows that there may be some hope on the inflation front, there may still be storm clouds massing for this year’s stock market. In times like these, it’s natural to turn to the high-yield dividend payers. These stocks offer the twin advantages of a steady income stream through regular, reliable dividend payments – and dividend y
