Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Healthcare

According to Vision Research Reports, the global surgical face masks market size was valued at US$ 2.2 Bn in 2020 and expected to surpass around US$ 12.5 bn by 2028.

The surgical face masks market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 11% during the assessment period.

North America dominated the global surgical face masks market in 2020 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Growth of the market in the region can be attributed to significant rise in the number of people being affected with the novel coronavirus. Additionally, increase in focus of market players on enhancing their production facilities to meet the rising demand for surgical face masks boosts the growth of the global market.

Surgical face mask, also known as procedure mask, medical mask, or face mask, is primarily intended for healthcare professionals during surgeries or procedures. These masks are designed to protect the wearer from contacting infections. N95 masks or respirators provide better protection against particulate matter and airborne bacteria and viruses. The global surgical face masks market is driven by rise in prevalence of infectious diseases, increase in number of people suffering from respiratory diseases, surge in pandemic of coronavirus, and rise in the number of surgeries performed globally.

Growing COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 has been spreading rapidly across the globe. People infected with coronavirus experience symptoms of mild to moderate respiratory illnesses. The disease is known to spread through respiratory droplets of an infected person. The usage of surgical face masks was advocated for infected persons to curb the spread of the disease. As of April 23, 2020, the disease has spread to over 210 countries, globally, infecting over 2,660,763 people. Increase in fear of infection among people and asymptomatic spread of the disease have led to the usage of masks by all people and creating significant demand for surgical face masks. Moreover, ongoing efforts to flatten the curve of the infection globally have prompted wearing of masks, which is known to minimize the spread of the infection.

Researchers Develop Safe Substance-formulations to Render Viruses Harmless upon Contact with Masks

It has been found that not all surgical face masks are effective in containing the spread of diseases. Hence, researchers are making innovative improvements in surgical face masks that not just trap viruses but also render them harmless. For instance, Hyo-Jick Choi, a professor at the University of Alberta Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, developed a salt formulation that can be applied to the filters of the masks in order to deactivate the virus particles. Thus, companies in the surgical face masks market should collaborate with such researchers to make new improvements in masks.

Companies in the surgical face masks market are increasing their R&D activities to understand the dynamics of simple chemistry to innovate in masks. They are also increasing efforts to improve the efficacy of the fiber filter inside the masks. Experimental scientists are using safe substances such as table salt to develop formulations that render viruses harmless upon contact.

Reusable Surgical Masks Help Reduce Environmental Footprint and Promote Recyclability

The issue of plastic pollution is likely to hamper the growth of the surgical face masks market. As such, the revenue of polypropylene (PP) masks is anticipated to grow aggressively in the market for surgical face masks. However, PP masks break down into micro-plastics that are potentially killing the aquatic ecosystem and wildlife.

An overuse of PP masks has led to increased recycling activities. However, the adoption of recycling processes is still in its nascent stage. Hence, companies in the market for surgical face masks are increasing the awareness about reusable masks that help to significantly reduce environmental footprint.

N95 to Dominate Global Market

In terms of product, the equipment segment is projected to account for major share of the global surgical face masks market during the forecast period. Growth of the segment can be attributed to high demand for these masks, owing to their ability to filter majority of the particulate matter and prevent the entry of particulate matter in the respiratory tract.

Increase in Usage of Disposable Surgical Masks

Based on usage, the disposable segment is anticipated to account for major share of the global surgical face masks market during the forecast period. Growth of the segment can be attributed to the shift from reusable to disposable masks, owing to their advantages such as increased protection.

Prominent Regions

The global surgical face masks market has been segmented into four major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America dominated the global surgical face masks market in 2019. The U.S. was the major market for surgical face masks in the region in 2019. Growth of the market in the region can be attributed to rise in prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases, increase in number of surgeries performed, and surge in focus of market players on expansion of production capabilities of surgical face masks to cater to the rising demand. The surgical face masks market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a high CAGR from 2021 to 2028 driven by developing countries such as China and India. Growth of the market in the region can be attributed to increase in levels of air pollution, rise in number of surgeries performed, and surge in medical tourism in the region. Furthermore, a rise in the number of local players entering the market to expand their manufacturing facilities for surgical face masks is likely to augment the market during the forecast period.
