Hygiene standards among people in general have substantially increased in recent years, coupled with the demand for eco-friendly alternatives to popular appliances. The installation of hand dryers in hotels, office buildings, restaurants, educational institutions, hospitals, clinics, and public restrooms connotes that people, irrespective of their professional background, have become more aware about maintaining health and hygiene, thus fuelling demand from the global hand dryers market.

“Innovative features and designs of hand dryers have significantly fuelled the demand for these appliances in hotels, office buildings, hospitals, and public restrooms”, said a lead TMR analyst. “The power saving attribute of hand dryers makes them cheaper than using paper towels in restrooms, which is a crucial factor fuelling the demand for the appliance. Installing hand dryers in restrooms serves multiple purposes”, he added, “These devices not only keep restrooms cleaner but also reduce the indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources for producing paper towels. Using hand dryers therefore proves to be more economical as they also reduce the overall maintenance cost.”

The two types of hand dryers presently available in the market are jet air hand dryers and hot air hand dryers. Of these, the hot air hand dryers segment holds the largest share in the market, because these hand dryers are available in the market at an affordable price. However, with the launch of the latest technologies and design, the segment of jet air hand dryers will soon pace up to gain a substantial share in the market.

Regionally, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share in the global hand dryers market in terms of shipment. The rapidly developing infrastructure in the region’s leading economies has supported the successful penetration of enterprises manufacturing hand dryers in the Asia Pacific market. Based on in-depth research, the TMR report anticipates the demand for hand dryers to be considerably high in India, Japan, China, Australia, and Singapore. The hand dryers market also has lucrative prospects in Europe, which is its second largest regional market, due to the high degree of hygiene consciousness among the local population. However, in terms of revenue, Europe holds the largest share in the global hand dryer market, followed by North America.
