Global Disposable Masks Market to Reach $26.6 Billion by 2026


Disposable masks provide a protective barrier between patients and surgical teams. They prevent germs transmission and reduce chances of being infected by contaminants present in the environment. Growth in the global market is being led by increasing pollution levels, growing awareness about protection of health among people, increasing industrialization and growing surgery numbers among others. Rise in pollution in countries worldwide is a major, long-term growth promoting factor for the market. Growing awareness among people with regard to individual health would also continuously promote market growth. Increasing industrialization and safety regulations for industries becoming more stringent across countries contributes to demand in the market. Another important growth promoting factor for the market is the rising cases of HAIs (hospital acquired infections). HAIs can be effectively prevented by using face masks. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic also created unprecedented demand for these masks globally.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Disposable Masks estimated at US$20 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$26.6 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% over the analysis period. Surgical Masks, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 4.9% CAGR and reach US$20.2 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Respirator Masks segment is readjusted to a revised 6.5% CAGR for the next 7-year period. Surgical face masks are mainly used in healthcare settings and worn by health professionals during healthcare procedures. They are designed to prevent infections in patients and health professionals by providing protection from inhaling airborne bacteria and germs in the surrounding environment. Respirator Masks are able to prevent liquid droplets thus leading to reduced risk of virus transmission. Protective masks including N95 are widely used by healthcare professionals during medical procedures known to expose them to respiratory secretions of patients.
