The novel coronavirus has hit the world with some eye-opening facts and figures and people are becoming more and more anxious as the pandemic continues to run its course without any definitive end in sight. In fact, the global outbreak has stunted regular business operations and shifted the paradigm towards new and upcoming products that were once on the backburner. The business world has been forced to innovate and come up with products that facilitate a sudden shift in consumers’ minds, which correspond with safety, cleanliness, and hygiene. There is a newfound demand for masks, face shields, sanitizers, etc. which have opened up a completely new market that was completely unthought of a year ago.
One such product is hand sanitizer dispensers that are gaining tremendous popularity, given their importance in today’s times. These products have managed to penetrate into people’s minds as a precautionary measure and will continue to dominate the customer’s psyche for years to come. Even if a vaccine is available to end this pandemic, people will continue to seek out such products to incorporate into their everyday routines as a way to maintain personal hygiene and avoid the spread of any contagious infections in the future. Many hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturers read into the future demand for the same and hence plunged into this business.
Let’s look into this market and how different hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturers are able to cater to this booming industry.
Hand Sanitizer Dispenser Manufacturers in India: The Journey
There are many hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturers across the country, but most of them generally do not manufacture the entire unit in-house. The raw materials for them are mostly imported from countries like China and USA. In fact, many manufacturers go for a white-label solution, which hinders product quality.
When it comes to our nation, the ‘Make in India’ slogan could not have been more imperative than today. Our government has urged us to become ‘Atmanirbhar’ to give a boost to our local manufactures and hence our economy.
This quest for self-reliance is also applicable when people are looking to purchase contactless hand sanitizer dispensers in India. It’s important to look out for a sanitizer dispenser manufacturer that focuses on reliable, quality products. This is possible only if these brands have a manufacturing and distribution network of their own, within the country. This will help dealers and distributors not only churn out optimum profits for themselves but also provide the people with a home-grown product that is useful in the best possible way.
According to the report ‘Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast’, the market size of the hand sanitizer dispensers globally was valued at $74.62 million in 2020, and it is expected to climb to $181.97 million by 2027, with an estimated CAGR of 13.60% from 2020 to 2027! As mentioned earlier, coronavirus has contributed tremendously towards a regular and frequent usage of sanitizers in day to day life, which is solely responsible for this sudden hike in the demand for sanitizer dispensers.
The Rise of Hand Sanitizer Dispenser Manufacturing in India
Sensing this, many manufacturers jumped onto the bandwagon to produce different sanitizer dispensers. However, there were certainly a number of problems to deal with up-front. These included a lack of understanding of the market or the absence of know-how about the product or the sales cycle, etc. Some of these products, in fact, failed to live up to the test of time and were rendered useless, considering the huge number of times they are used on an everyday basis, especially in busy, public areas.
This is why hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturers have come up with a touchless variety to get rid of the wear and tear issue. From different product dispensing systems to unique holders that uplift the overall design, thanks to the various hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturers, people have at their disposal an array of sanitizer dispensers to choose from.
Based on the end-use such as offices, residential areas, airports, commercial complexes, etc. hand sanitizer dispensers are available in different shapes and sizes. For busy areas that witness a huge footfall, hand sanitizer dispensers come extremely handy. Here, regular ways of sanitizing will not be of much help as more sets of hands touching the sanitizer bottle defeats the basic purpose of sanitizing itself. A hand sanitizer dispenser, therefore, is the best bet to keep the spread of any infection at bay.
Oakter Becomes India’s First Touchless Hand Sanitizer Dispenser Manufacturer
Clearly, there was a need to focus attention towards a locally produced option, given the rising unrest on the dependency on China, USA, etc. In fact, local production and manufacturing are being given a tremendous boost and encouragement via different government schemes as asserted by our Prime Minister.
Keeping this in view, the Department of Research and Defence Organization of India (DRDO) has come up with its own very effective hand sanitizer dispenser called ‘OakMist’. That too, only within 30 days of the virus outbreak.
This is a DRDO developed touchless sanitizer dispenser. It was developed within first 20 days of outbreak. In next 30 days, these machines were installed all across my office building!

मुझे यह कहते हुए गर्व हो रहा है कि DRDO ने COVID-19 के खिलाफ लड़ाई में योगदान देने के लिए अपनी निरंतर प्रयास के माध्यम से पिछले 3-4 महीनों में 50 से अधिक उत्पाद, जैसे bio suit, sanitizer dispenser, PPE kits आदि विकसित किए हैं: रक्षा मंत्री

Developed by DRDO in association with Oakter, a subsidiary of the popular smart home appliances manufacturer brand Riot Labz, OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers are the country’s very own locally produced weapon to shield from coronavirus. As soon as the three founders received a design for a sanitizer amidst the lockdown on 15th of April from the Centre for Fire, Explosive and Environment Safety (CFEES) they got down to making the prototype immediately right from within their homes. From electronic sensors to pumps drawn out from an aquarium, they set their hands on every equipment available at home and submitted their first prototype which eventually was upgraded for robustness and quality.
On receiving the necessary approvals, the team worked tirelessly for three days to come up with the final version of the prototype and installed the same first at DRDO’s headquarters. Once the final product kicked in at the DRDO headquarters, the production was ramped up in their factory. They produced 100-150 units per day then which eventually touched the production capacity of 1000 units per day very soon.
OakMist Touchless Sanitizer Dispenser – Accepted Across India and Globally
OakMist has received a great response from people, with their units being installed in a number of establishments, both commercial and residential. From houses of some of the chief government officials to hospitals and dispensaries, from important metro stations to big showrooms, OakMist has received a warm welcome from everyone.
Major government offices such as the Ministry of Home Affairs, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Ministry of Finance, Army offices, Supreme Court, etc. already have OakMist installed. Many other establishments such as the premium hotel Hyatt Regency, luxury car showroom BMW, major hospitals, and a lot of other retail stores have also ramped up their spaces with OakMist and are alert in practising proper hygiene by sanitizing hands with the help of touchless hand sanitizer dispensers.

Key Features of OakMist Touchless Sanitizer Dispenser
What makes OakMist one of the best hand sanitizer dispensers? What are its features? Let’s look into it.
OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers are completely touchless, which paves the way for better hygiene and safety in comparison with the normal touch sanitizer dispensers like the foot-operated ones. They have an inbuilt ultrasonic sensor technology which sprays just the right amount of sanitizer when hands are placed under the sensor.
OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers allow spraying of 1 – 5ml of sanitizer ingredient per cycle (varies as per the model), which is just sufficient to provide a clean and hygienic set of hands. It uses a water-mist based aerator technology that ensures total cleaning of your hands. This leads to zero wastage of the ingredient as no extra sanitizer gushes out or drips on the floor.
Sanitizer liquids containing over 60% alcohol is prescribed by the WHO and ICMR to kill the coronavirus and other infectious germs. These dispensers are completely compatible with all types of alcohol-based hand sanitizers available in the market. We suggest an alcohol content of 60-80% for the best protection.
Large Storage Capacity
The OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers come in two variants of 10L and 1.2L capacities which means it requires refill after a long time.
Almost as many as 1000 – 10,000 sanitization cycles can be completed in a single refill (depending on the model), which means multiple sets of hands can enjoy clean sanitized hands, post which sanitizer needs to be refilled. This makes it especially useful in a public setting.
OakMist sanitizer dispensers are extremely design-friendly which are available in both table-top and wall-mounted formats. Depending upon the design of the room in which the dispenser needs to be installed, the customer can play with the placement of the same, keeping in mind the aesthetic value.
The hand sanitizer dispenser manufacturer has kept in mind the value component by incorporating sturdy body material which not only comes with a premium design but also with a very high-quality ABS plastic body. Both the hand sanitizer dispenser machine variants are tested for over 1,00,000 sanitization cycles, ensuring sturdy and reliable long-term usage.
Being completely contactless, OakMist sanitizer dispensers last long because there are less wear and tear issues. The product comes with a manufacturing warranty of one year for any manufacturing defect.
Top Benefits of OakMist that Make it a Safe Choice
While the key features of OakMist are listed above, here are a few direct benefits of installing the same at one’s home or office or any other institution:
The sanitizer market has seen a boom unlike before, a boom which is here to stay for years to come as people would not want to part ways with sanitization at any cost. The benefits associated are huge and therefore every establishment does need a sanitizer mechanism. But there definitely has to be a better way of sanitizing hands, rather than the traditional methods, given the fact that there requires hand or feet contact in even many dispensers, which completely annuls the whole sanitization procedure in the first place. OakMist offers a touchless technology, which simply involves putting out one’s hands under the dispenser. The ultrasonic sensors come alive and dispense the required amount of sanitizers, thus involving zero human contact and better chances of no bacterial infections.
The DRDO hand sanitizer dispenser comes with a very easy installation procedure. A layman can easily purchase and install the same within minutes. It simply needs to be plugged into a standard 220V AC supply and can be put to use. The device also comes with voltage fluctuation and surge protection, for establishments that may face unprecedented electricity cuts, and safeguard under such situations.
Premium and Robust Design
OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers are very user friendly. There are two display LEDs to indicate on/off status and dispensing in progress. The front panel indicates the remaining level of sanitizer in the machine that helps the user to refill the exact amount of sanitizer, ensuring minimum wastage. Besides, the device comes with a very sturdy body which is light-weight and easy to maintain.
The best thing about OakMist hand sanitizer dispenser is its usage in a wide variety of places. Hospitals, transit areas, offices and other public places are not the only places where these can be installed. In fact, they have an application just about any place, be it gyms, shopping malls, libraries, theatres, temples, metro stations, designer boutiques etc, the list is endless. They are designed in a manner that they can effortlessly be placed anywhere and become one with the space.

OakMist customers are the general public who are interested in keeping their family members happy and healthy. Indian households generally comprise three generations, which includes the elderly as well as young children. In the wake of coronavirus, it has been proved that the pandemic has specifically proven harmful for elders and children under the age of 10. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for home-owners to build a protective shield at the entrance itself.
Since the lockdown has been lifted, many outsiders do get an entry inside homes such as housemaids, delivery boys, drivers etc. Such outsiders come into contact with a lot of people via their jobs obviously and need to be sanitized before allowing home entry. OakMist offers a beautiful solution and can be installed right at the entrance for ensuring complete sanitization.

The coronavirus has led to an economic trajectory that affected each and every sector to a huge extent. People have started to step out to conduct the meagre amount of business that is being conducted. Public places such as hospitals, clinics, police stations, offices, transit points like airports, railway stations, etc. experience huge traffic every day, increasing chances of spread of the virus. A hand sanitizer dispenser installation at such places is a must, which would considerably reduce the number of people contracting the virus if they keep sanitizing their hands at frequent intervals.
Superior Support Service
People are often sceptical about after-sales service for most products. However, the DRDO approved OakMist hand sanitizer dispenser not only comes with one year’s manufacturing warranty but also provides a customer support team which is just a call away, in case a customer faces any difficulty while using the same. The device hardly requires any maintenance once mounted. The sanitizer also needs to be refilled after a good 1000 sanitization cycles are complete, giving the user a much-coveted peace of mind, especially with all the stress that one has to endure during the corona times.
Variants of OakMist: Suitable For Specific Needs
The OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers come in two variants as follows:
OakMist PLUS sanitizer dispenser is highly recommended for places that receive a huge footfall every day. It comes with an inbuilt capacity of 10 litres, ensuring 10,000 sanitization cycles before requiring a refill. Every dispensing cycle releases 1 ml of sanitizer, which is just enough to sanitize hands and avoid unwanted slippage or wastage. The pricing is competitive and in line with the market and can be purchased at Rs. 8,490, which is at a discounted price from the original Rs.12,990.
OakMist MINI sanitizer dispenser comes with all the features of OakMist PLUS and is just a smaller version of the above. Recommended for places that do not really experience heavy traffic such as homes, showrooms etc, the OakMist MINI dispensers sprays about 1ml of sanitizer at each cycle, ensuring 1000 cycles before requiring a refill. Originally priced at Rs.5990, the OakMist MINI is available at a discounted price of only Rs.5,490.
Considering the ‘Made in India’ trademark attached to the product, the OakMist hand sanitizer dispensers are a highly economical option as compared to the various imported options available in the market.
