Hand Dryer Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2030

Hand dryers are viewed as an environmentally responsible alternative to paper towels. By reducing the need for paper production, transportation, and disposal, they help conserve natural resources and decrease the carbon footprint associated with paper products. These dryers significantly reduce paper waste in public restrooms and other facilities. This directly impacts minimizing the volume of paper towels ending up in landfills. In some cases, reducing water wastage is directly related to these dryers. When people use these dryers, they are less likely to use paper towels to wipe their hands, reducing the consumption of paper from water-intensive processes. Additionally, with growing disposable income, people are more inclined to dine out and stay at hotels for leisure and business purposes. This leads to a higher footfall in hotels and restaurants, increasing the need for restroom facilities. As people's living standards improve, so do their expectations for hygiene and comfort. Hotels and restaurants aim to provide a superior guest experience, including clean and well-maintained restrooms. High-speed dryers with touchless operation are considered a modern and hygienic choice in these facilities. These dryers are efficient and cost-effective solutions for high-traffic establishments. The proliferation of hotels and restaurants due to increasing disposable income and higher living standards can indirectly expand the market.

However, maintenance, including cleaning and filter replacement, can incur costs for businesses and institutions. These ongoing expenses need to be factored into the total cost of ownership when considering these dryer solutions. If these dryers are not well-maintained, they may not perform efficiently, leading to subpar user experience. Users may find that damp hands are not adequately dried, which can be frustrating and may result in a negative perception of these dryers. During maintenance, these dryers may be temporarily out of service. This can disrupt restroom facilities, leading to user inconvenience. Downtime can be a challenge for high-traffic locations. Facilities must either have in-house personnel trained in maintenance or rely on external service providers, which can be an added logistical challenge. The above factors will hamper market growth.

Type Outlook

On the basis of type, the market is segmented into hot hand dryer and jet hand dryer. In 2022, the jet hand dryer segment dominated the market with the maximum revenue share. Jet hand dryers use narrow, high-speed air jets to blow water droplets off the hands. The powerful and focused airflow provides rapid and effective drying in seconds. Some jet hand dryers come with additional hygiene features, such as HEPA filters or antimicrobial coatings, to ensure the air used for drying hands is clean and free from contaminants. These features are aimed at improving the overall hygiene of the drying process.

Mode of Operation Outlook

Based on mode of operation, the market is fragmented into push button and automatic. The push button segment garnered a significant revenue share in the market in 2022. Push button hand dryers are often more cost-effective in terms of their initial purchase price when compared to high-speed automatic or jet hand dryers. This can make them an attractive option for budget-conscious businesses and facilities. Push button hand dryers are straightforward to use. Users press a button or flip a switch to activate the drying process. This simplicity can benefit settings where users are accustomed to such devices and do not require complex technology. Push button hand dryers are typically known for their reliability. The absence of electronic sensors and components means fewer potential points of failure, making them less prone to technical malfunctions. Jet hand dryers are gaining attraction worldwide due to lower energy consumption and lesser drying time requirement.
