Regionally, Europe has shown a prominent adoption of automatic hand dryers constituting around 34% share in 2014. UK dominates the market throughout the analysis period owing to the rise in environmental concerns and increase in health awareness among the residents.
Eco friendly technology and reduced Noise levels boosts the adoption in APAC
Hand dryers are considered to be environmental friendly as the adoption does not require deforestation, which reduces hazardous effects on the environment. Companies produce hand dryers that costs around 16-18 cents per 1,000 hands dried. Whereas paper towel manufacturing has adverse effect on the environment. Statistics show that more than 7,000 gallons of water gets polluted, nearly 17 grown trees are cut down, and 500 gallons of oil and gasoline are burned to produce 1 ton of paper towels. Hand dryers are responsible for 9g to 40g greenhouse gas emissions, whereas paper towels leave a carbon footprint of 56g greenhouse gas emissions. Hand dryers minimize the contamination of natural resources thereby emerging as an eco-friendly technology. In addition, hand dryer noise is one of the important factors taken into consideration while purchasing hand dryers. High speed modern hand dryers produce extreme noise levels as dry time reduces. Manufacturers tend to produce hand dryers with minimum noise level, which again leads to high prices of the models. Owing to the aforementioned factors, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region for the adoption of hand dryers.
