CHG cloths are employed for children having a central line, ones who are in intensive care units, and those who are expected to undergo surgery or a procedure. Dry and cool skin is less likely to get rashes or irritated from CHG cloths. CHG offers better results when applied to patients twice a day at home before joint arthroplasty; once at night and once in the morning before surgery.

Key Drivers, Restrains, and Opportunities of Global Chlorhexidine Gluconate Cloths Market

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that patients should be showered at least the night before surgery with an antiseptic rinse or wipe in order to reduce infection during the procedure. Topical CHG is considered to be an effective and long-lasting antiseptic. Homemade rinse preparations have responded inadequately compared to no-rinse cloths.

Wipes can be filled or saturated with additives or lotions to provide maximum advantage. Wipe manufacturers have formulation experts who help develop wipe techniques, which includes gel, aqueous, wax, and lotion, only to create proper padding or coatings of the nonwoven wipes. Tailored wipes are for best performance, user experience, and texture. It is important to present wipes in various folding configurations, including inter-folded and z-folded, which is in stacked form or cross folded for differential uses.

Increase in awareness about chlorhexidine gluconate cloths for cleanliness and rise in surgical site infections are key factors that are projected to drive the global chlorhexidine gluconate cloths market during the forecast period. Side-effects of CHG products, such as rashes and allergies, are anticipated to restrain the market.
