Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and increasing prevalence of healthcare associate infections are the major factors driving the demand for the connected hand hygiene products & services. Monitoring hand hygiene compliance is considered a critical aspect of an effective hand hygiene program. Electronic monitoring systems vary from simple systems that track only the number of times that soap, or hand sanitizer is dispensed, to more complex systems that association information on the timing of hand hygiene dispensing and the location of a healthcare worker to provide an estimate of compliance. Moreover, hospitals with automated hand hygiene monitoring systems have an advantage during this pandemic with the ability to quickly gather robust hand hygiene data with minimal investment of personnel time. Thus, healthcare workers operate in an environment that has a heavy workload, multitasking, and responsibilities. Implementation and deployment of the novel hand hygiene compliance monitoring systems take these factors into account and provide enhanced solutions for ensuring hand hygiene at all settings in any healthcare facility. However, high investment costs for the electronic hand hygiene monitoring systems these factors may hamper the market growth. In spite of that, increasing technological advancements may offer an opportunity for the further growth of the market in the coming future.

North America is expected to capture the significant share of the global dominating connected hand hygiene market within the forecast period. Increasing coronavirus cases and rapidly growing healthcare associated infections are the major factors driving the growth of the connected hand hygiene market in this region. In addition, increasing initiatives by hospitals, organizations & commercial setups to proactively offer hand hygiene solutions to their employees and growing demand for hand hygiene solutions due to shift in consumer behavior for personal hygiene are also supplementing the market growth in this region. The Asia Pacific is expected to witness as an emerging region in the global connected hand hygiene market due to the increasing infectious diseases and government initiatives to increase awareness regarding the benefits of connected health hygiene products in this region.
As there is a poor hand hygiene practice in public health institutions such as hospitals, clinics, schools, and nursing homes and which is the most likely cause of the spread of various bacterial diseases. Thus, proper hand hygiene is the single biggest defense against spread of diseases and therefore the caregivers' compliance with hand hygiene is one of the most effective devices for preventing Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) in such institutions. Connected hand-hygiene stations are the new technological innovation with the traditional hand hygiene system, as it uses a combination Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies for monitoring the hand hygiene compliance rate. These cloud-connected hand hygiene stations can cooperate to detect hand hygiene events in real-time and help measuring the hand hygiene compliance at large-scale health-care facilities where it is deployed. These developments are coming about due to the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) as a concept where ordinary items are upgraded to include Internet connectivity, and this gives them the ability to communicate information in real-time.
Wristbands: As proper hand hygiene is the single biggest defense against spreading disease, connected hand-hygiene stations monitor hand hygiene compliance in real time with any time a healthcare professional comes near a patient without washing their hands sensor beeps of the wristbands for reminding them of their duty to treat their patients with clean hands. These wristbands have a cloud-based network of smart wristbands and sensor-equipped faucet, soap, and sanitizer dispensers. It reminds the user to wash their hands. Like a gimlet-eyed schoolmarm, the bracelet also monitors the quality of user handwashing. Its real-time feedback helps user to improve their hand-washing compliance and these high-tech wristband monitors their hand-washing habits remotely. For example, WSH20 Wristbands are designed to be worn as a direct reminder for all ages to properly wash their hands for 20 seconds.
User-Worn Badge: It is a high-tech to solve a very low-tech problem such as the lack of routine handwashing by healthcare employees and other users. This solution is not only records data about hand hygiene and enables analysis at the individual, group or institutional level but also it offers real-time, proactive alerts to staff of potential, missed opportunities to cleanse their hands. This hand hygiene compliance solution is integrated into a badge that offers other aspects of real-time employee location for healthcare providers and it is a lightweight badge which can be worn by each member of the staff or any user. In addition, this system provides enterprise level reporting on hand hygiene including the number of visits to hand hygiene stations, missed hand-washing opportunities as well as rates of visits and missed opportunities. For example, BioVigil user-worn badge, it provides electronic hand hygiene monitoring solution to perform hand hygiene, if user forgets. The combination of these reminders, plus the awareness feature of a green, yellow, and red light have proven to significantly increase hand hygiene compliance.
Internet of Things (IoT) Devices: Internet of things (IoT) devices are trending as these devices for soap dispensers can ensure that people wash their hands properly for over 20 seconds as per the World Health Organization guidelines for COVID-19. This device will glow, beep, and play a musical tone for more than 20 seconds to help people disinfect their hands properly & it is splash-proof device which can be mounted on any liquid soap dispenser and operates using a battery. It can be connected via Wi-Fi network and paired and operated through a mobile app. The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices with the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. For example, 20Sec4Life device, this device has developed for soap dispensers by using IoT to ensure that people wash their hand properly. These are some of the major trends in the global connected hand hygiene market.
