The World Health Organization (WHO) stated that millions of patients are affected by healthcare-associated infections worldwide each year, leading to significant mortality and financial losses. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, approximately 30% of the patients in ICUs are affected by at least one episode of healthcare-associated infection. This huge population affected with healthcare-acquired infections is increasing the demand for CHG Wipes and contributing to boost the CHG wipes market. The global CHG wipes market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. Currently, the market is dominated by many market players. The growing competition among existing and new market players to develop better CHG products is expected to fuel market growth. Also, key companies are being involved in the launch of new products to brace their position in the market. For instance, in October 2018, 3M announced the launch of SoluPrep Film-Forming Sterile Surgical Solution, a 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol surgical skin prep that are used to help clinicians in the fight against surgical site infections.
