(CNN) - Clorox, the world’s largest producer of disinfectant cleaning materials, said their cleaning wipes will remain difficult to buy well into 2021.
The company dominates the $1 billion disinfectant wipes market with a 45% market share.
Clorox said it aggressively ramped up production, but that still won’t be enough to keep up with demand.
The company’s incoming CEO said it will now take a year to reach the supply level necessary to meet customer needs due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming cold and flu season.
Demand for its product line boosted the company’s overall sales by 22%.
