Since COVID-19 is spreading throughout 100 countries, there are more than 13 million confirmed cases, and more than 500,000 deaths and disposable medical masks are in shortage. Although many enterprises doubled their production capacities, there is still a big gap between supply and demand.
The imports of face masks rose by 692.16%, while the exports declined by 12.42% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to the same period of 2019 in China. Meanwhile, the price of N95 respirators and surgical masks have also surged dramatically.
According to the analyst, during the epidemic, the largest source of masks imported to China was South Korea, accounting for 22.08%. And the main destination of Chinese face mask exports is the United States, which accounts for 36.64%
According to the analyst, the major brand owners of face masks can be divided into three types: international brands of N95 respirators, other surgical masks brands, and OEM enterprises.
The analyst estimates that the global market scale of medical masks is approximately USD 3 billion, with the market for N95 masks to be at least USD 2 billion in the next five years. Moreover, due to a shortage of production capacity in other countries, China will be the main producer of medical face masks in the world by the end of 2020. However, with the expansion of production capacity in other countries, the global dependence on Chinese face masks will gradually decline in the coming years.
