The outbreak of COVID-19 has affected the growth of the deodorant and antiperspirant market negatively. Deodorant is a personal care hygiene product which helps to stop bacterial growth on the skin and keep it fresh. During the pandemic, deodorant was not considered as a necessary product, and therefore, the demand for deodorants decreased during the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced countries to impose lockdown, which has disrupted the distribution and supply chain. There was restriction on the export and import of deodorants as it was not an important product. The production method for new batches of deodorant had become a major challenge for the companies due to the limited availability of labor, logistic issue, and disrupted raw material supply.

Deodorant and antiperspirant are commonly confused with each other. However, they are actually two separate products. The purpose of a deodorant is to cover up bad smells from the body's sweat or perspiration and prevent body odor from being detected by others. The second class of deodorant, also known as antiperspirants, prevents sweating by blocking sweat pores themselves, usually by physically blocking sweat glands.
Growing awareness regarding personal hygiene and increasing disposable income of consumers are driving the growth of the deodorant and antiperspirant market. Moreover, rapid urbanization and the increasing launch of innovative products by key players to cater to growing demand is also fostering growth of the market.
