Medical Face Mask Market Segmentation
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, end-user, and geography. The surgical medical face mask segment is likely to grow at a healthy rate with a growing number of surgical procedures across the globe. Surgical face masks can prevent infections in patients and HCPs by catching bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose. They are considered as the primary protection standard by medical professionals in almost low, medium, or high level medical and laboratory experimental procedures. The growing recommendation of specific surgical masks by healthcare professionals in the community and home settings for patients to avoid close contact and to maintain good hand hygiene is another factor driving the demand for the segment.
The surge in the COVID-19 pandemic across the world has increased the demand for respirator masks, particularly among HCPs that are working in health care facilities. There has been a surge due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with around 6.6 million reported infected cases globally as of June 4, 2020. Therefore, respirator masks offer more protection than surgical ones because they can filter out both large as well as small particles. Thus, the CDC recommends the use of respirator masks as protective equipment for frontline healthcare workers and strategizes for optimizing the supply of these for seamless manufacturing and supply of the products to combat the pandemic.
In terms of revenue, the hospital end-user segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. High adoption of latest generation treatment practices with standard hygiene and safety measures is driving the market. A majority of patients with a high risk of diseases prefer visiting hospitals for treatment due to advanced infrastructure care facilities available in major private and public hospitals. Surgeons prefer to use modern medical face masks made of non-allergic materials due to their high success rates and improved patient outcomes during complex medical surgeries. The medical face mask market in India is the third-largest in the Asia Pacific region. Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government of India has ramped up domestic manufacturing of PPE, including medical face masks, for healthcare workers to meet the excessive demand.
