Global Disposable Masks and Respirators Market to Grow at 20.3% During 2024-2032, Propelled by Recent Outbreak of COVID-19 Pandemic

May 23, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Disposable Masks and Respirators Market Report by Product Type (Surgical Mask, Respirator Mask, Dust Mask), Distribution Channel (Pharmacy, Hospitals and Clinics, Online Channel), End Use (Healthcare, Industrial, Personal), and Region 2024-2032,”finds that the global disposable masks and respirators market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.3% during 2024-2032. Disposable masks and respirators are protective equipment that filters out pollutants and other harmful air-borne infections. They are made of non-woven materials, filter layers, mask straps, and nose clips and are meant for singleuse only. These masks are worn over the nose and mouth to prevent the wearer from inhaling dust, smoke, and other toxic substances. Owing to these properties, disposable masks and respirators are adopted as protective face coverings across healthcare, construction, mining, oil and gas, and chemical industries.

Global Disposable Masks and Respirators Market Trends:

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.
