Ease of portability of the product and no requirement of liquid disinfectants is a major factor influencing consumers purchasing decisions. UV sanitizer travel wand is acting as a major substitute for the spraying rubbing alcohol, wipes, and sanitizing surfaces using cleaning formulas. Many chemical cleansers many not destroy molds and spores but UV light is effective in destroying them. Less time consumption and efforts in sanitizing the objects and area are acting as a major driver for using UV sanitizing travel wand.

Companies in the market are increasingly focusing on social media marketing and offering a discount on the e-commerce platform in order to gain market share.

Furthermore, the recent outbreak of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is expected to act as a major driver for the market for the period of 2020 to 2021. These travel wands are estimated to gain popularity over the forecast period owing to the introduction of new products with trendy designs and features. Growing awareness among consumers is acting as a major driver for the increase in product adoption.

However, high preference for the usage of surface disinfectant products, such as isopropyl alcohol wipes or general disinfecting wipes, to wipe down any hard and nonporous surfaces is acting as a major restraint for market growth.

The commercial category is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2027.
