Argentina: sales growth of hygiene and household products due to COVID-19

During the last week of February and the first week of March of 2020, Argentina saw major sales growth in antiseptics and household insecticides in comparison to the same period of the previous year. For instance, sales of antiseptics, which include alcohol-based sanitizers, registered an increase of 310 percent between February 24 and March 1, 2020. The following week, the sales growth rate in this product category reached 367 percent.

Sales of household insecticides registered an increase of 141 percent and 259 percent in those two weeks, respectively. Toilet soap reported lower sales growth rates, with 55 percent in the ninth week of the year and 82 percent in the tenth. The increased demand is associated with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes the COVID-19.
