The increase in air pollution and the spread of infectious diseases are the major factors driving the market growth. Additionally, rising awareness of personal hygiene among people is also expected to fuel the growth of the market.

The growing emphasis on occupational health and safety in developed economies is reflected in the growing adoption of disposable masks by employers. This, in turn, gives a boost to the growth of the market. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in demand for disposable face masks as individuals strive to protect themselves from the disease. This has had a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Disposable face masks are devices designed to protect the wearer from inhaling harmful airborne particles, bacteria and viruses. N95 masks are a type of disposable mask specifically designed to filter out large particles such as dust, pollen, and viruses.

Major factors driving the growth of the market include rising incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAI), growing awareness of workplace safety, and increasing instances of respiratory diseases such as asthma and lung disease chronic obstructive tissue (COPD). Nosocomial infections are one of the main concerns worldwide, as they can lead to serious complications and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 in 31 hospitalized patients have at least one AIH.

Other key findings from the report suggest

  • Based on product type, the market is categorized into paper masks, cloth masks, and N95 respirators. Among these, the N95 respirator segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing awareness of the population about personal hygiene and the increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases such as asthma and tuberculosis.

  • Regarding the distribution channel, the pharmacy segment held more than 40.0% of the market in 2019 due to the increased demand for face masks in pharmacies during the outbreak of pandemic diseases such as SARS and Avian Flu. For example, according to the National Health Service (NHS), England, in May 2020, more than 130 million face masks were distributed to GPs, pharmacies and other primary care providers.

  • The growing awareness of the importance of personal hygiene and the availability of a wide range of masks in the market are the main growth factors for this segment. However, the online store segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing penetration of internet and online shopping platforms such as Amazon and Alibaba is expected to drive the growth of this segment.

  • In terms of application, Hospitals & Clinics segment held a major share of the market in 2019 due to rising prevalence of infectious diseases and growing demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) in hospitals. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of June 2020, there were over 10 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, with over 500,000 deaths worldwide. The increase in the number of confirmed cases is expected to boost the demand for face masks in hospitals and clinics.

  • The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to the outbreak of infectious diseases such as SARS, Avian Influenza, and COVID-19 in the region. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of June 2020, there were over 6 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Asia-Pacific, with over 300,000 deaths.
