Nonwovens Industry: Industrial & Institutional Wipes Report
Wipes manufacturers are optimistic about future growth in the I&I category. Nonwovens Industry recently published an article entitled Industrial & Institutional Wipes Report, which discusses the increase in demand for disinfecting wipes during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the dust has started to settle as we approach the end of 2021, there has been an increase in the availability of supplies while demand has started to level off and stabilize.
Excerpt from the article:
PDI, a manufacturer of wipes that specializes in infection prevention, expects cleaning practices and behaviors that were so ingrained in everyone during the height of the pandemic, to remain of high importance as variants emerge and we move into this year’s flu season.
“Surface and hand disinfection are two of the easiest practices we can control to help reduce the spread of viral and bacterial pathogens,” says Ben Dolcimascolo, PDI director of marketing, Environment of Care. “Unsurprisingly, the frequency in which people disinfected both surfaces and hands during the pandemic drastically increased. Across all industries, surface and hand disinfection were at the core of the enhanced safety precautions put in place. Most public establishments including food stores, shopping malls, and restaurants tried to do their part in reducing the spread of Covid-19 by supplying customers with disinfectant and hand hygiene products at entrances. Hospitals also put new enhanced disinfection policies in place, increasing how often they disinfected surfaces and making sure the products they used were effective against SARS-CoV-2.”
