The market is primarily driven by the recent outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Masks, such as N99, R95, 3M, and N95, are widely used to prevent the contamination of the virus. In addition, the growing awareness regarding the benefits of particulate respirators that restrain microdroplet transmission into the respiratory tract represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, medical professionals adopt disposable masks and respirators to prevent cross-contamination between surgeons and patients and minimize the risk of hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). This, coupled with the rising incidences of workplace-based respiratory hazards, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the increasing amount of NOx emissions from the transportation, aviation, power generation, and marine sectors, the implementation of stringent regulations regarding occupational health and safety across several industrial verticals, and the increasing investments in clinical trials of novel products are some of the other factors creating a favorable market outlook across the globe.
