Face Mask Market Segmentation The global face mask market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, nature, end-users, distribution, and geography. The global outbreak of coronavirus has become one of the major drivers for the exceptional growth of N95 respirator masks in 2020. N95 manufacturers have witnessed a rapid growth in the sale of respiratory protective products. Although healthcare regulatory authorities across the globe have recommended the use of N95 respirators should be limited to healthcare workers, many individuals purchase these products to mitigate the risk of acquiring COVID-19 infection. The outbreak of pandemic has led to the growth of N95, KN95, FFP2 & FFP3, P95 & R95 masks.
The demand for surgical aids and equipment has increased with the adoption of new surgical practices in the medical field. The presence of dedicated surgical centers in healthcare centers has also given an impetus to the growth. Also, surgical masks are witnessing significant growth demand majorly because of their affordability and availability in the market. The surgical segment is further categorized into 3-ply, 4-ply, and 5-ply, which are witnessing high adoption on account of the awareness in standard hygiene and safety measures and the growth of airborne infections.
The increasing awareness of personal protective equipment among people on account of the growing healthcare sector is expected to drive the disposable face mask market. The use of disposable ones helps to protect the wearer from viruses and pathogens that can cause infections. The function is to reduce or eliminate the chance of being affected by potential environmental contaminants. These are highly worn by the hospital staff and employees working in medical healthcare institutions. Moreover, the increasing product penetration in developing countries via e-commerce sale channels is positively influencing the disposable face mask market size.
The penetration of protective equipment in hospitals is estimated to witness growth considering the prevalence of hospital-acquired infections globally. Several health authorities are making compulsory to wear face masks in hospitals, especially after the outbreak of Coronavirus as healthcare facilities come under high risk zones. The emergence of improved and effective surgical masks and respirators with superior safety and efficacy serves as healthy market opportunities for hospitals as the demand for modern treatment procedures is increasing, especially in developed countries.
