Wet Wipes Market is expected to reach US$ 8.0 Billion 2031 at a CAGR of 7.6% | FMI

Since wet wipes effectively serve the purpose of maintaining hygiene standards and removal of germs, dirt, and dust build-up on the skin and other physical surfaces, their applications are projected to continue gaining traction over the forecast period.

NEWARK, Del: ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI) has projected the global Wet Wipes Market to reach a valuation of US$ 3.7 Bn in 2021. Expanding at a robust 7.6% CAGR, the market is poised to surpass a valuation of US$ 8.0 Bn by the end of 2031.

Wet wipes are in great demand due to rising awareness of good hygiene habits and the establishment of healthcare programmes in numerous nations to promote healthy living.

Wet wipes and wet towels are among the most popular items for personal hygiene since they are simple to use and widely available. A wide range of goods, including baby wipes, makeup wipes, disinfectant wipes, and wound care wipes, are being introduced by producers as a result of the significant demand for wet wipes. In the upcoming years, these variables will produce attractive growth potential.

Market players are launching eco-friendly and biodegradable variants of wet wipes made from wood pulp and cotton as a replacement of synthetic fibers, which in turn is driving sales of wet wipes. Rising prevalence of health-related disorders in the geriatric population, such as incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is spurring demand for wet wipes, particularly in hospitals.

Since wet wipes effectively serve the purpose of maintaining hygiene standards and removal of germs, dirt, and dust build-up on the skin and other physical surfaces, their applications are projected to continue gaining traction over the forecast period. Besides this, the emergence of local and small players, innovative product development, smart marketing strategies adopted by leading manufacturers, and commercialization of wet wipes are improving growth prospects for the global wet wipes market.

The FMI study projects the U.S. to lead the North America wet wipes market. Rapid expansion of distribution channels, coupled with increasing per capita healthcare expenditure are anticipated to bode well for the wet wipes market in the U.S.

 “Expansion of the ecommerce sector is resulting in easy availability and increasing sales of wet wipes across the globe. In addition to this, government-backed healthcare reimbursement plans will continue driving sales of wet wipes over the forecast period,” says the FMI analyst.
