Impact of COVID-19

Widening gap between supply and demand tests stakeholders

As the construction and mining sectors experience major disruption, demand for PPE has plummeted globally. The postponement of manufacturing plants or the temporary shutdown of operations did not bode well for the business outlook. Moreover, the ban on the export of respirators has sent shock waves around the world. According to the World Trade Organization (WTO), about 80 countries have banned the export of ventilators during the pandemic as a temporary measure to overcome severe shortages. Meanwhile, exponential healthcare demand in emerging and advanced economies has encouraged production.

Drivers and Constraints

Bullish demand for N-95 respirators has fueled innovations

The growth of the protective face masks market will be pronounced due to the high demand for N-95 respirators in both developed and developing economies. Healthcare respirators have become sought after to contain the spread of COVID-19. An N95 respirator can apparently remove 95% of very small particles, encouraging end users to seek out the product. General and medical professionals will continue to seek surgical N95 for protection against COVID-19 infection. Manufacturers will continue to emphasize the production of protective masks in healthcare facilities.

However, fluctuating face mask prices could challenge large companies as they prepare to bolster their portfolios.

Regional outlook

North America will witness investment aplenty with growing personal hygiene awareness

Industry participants expect North America to account for a sizable share of the global market, largely due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and expanding customer base. North America market size was valued at USD 9.24 billion in 2021 and will witness a similar trend due to increased awareness of personal hygiene. The healthcare and mining sectors could be the main beneficiaries of PPE in the United States and Canada.

The face mask market share in Asia-Pacific will be pronounced due to growing demand from the oil & gas, healthcare, and mining sectors. As Asia-Pacific is gaining prominence as one of the leading suppliers of face masks, stakeholders could increase their penetration in China, India, and Australia. Industry players expect N-95 respirators to gain traction in improving hygiene.

The European market forecast will be strong thanks to strong government policies to encourage personal hygiene. For example, the UK, Germany, France, Italy and other European countries had made it mandatory to wear face masks on public transport following the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic. . The prevailing trends suggest that big companies will inject funds into the landscape to strengthen their footprint.
