According to BlueWeave Consulting, the global face mask market has reached USD 2.86 Million in 2019 and is further projected to reach USD 4.38 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. Wearing face masks is one of the new norms in almost all countries worldwide, considering the global pandemic crisis. It is being considered as an effective social norm to prevent the spread of the virus infection. Thus, the increasing demand for face masks is fueling the growth of the face mask market.
Degradation in the quality of air driving the demand for face masks
Pollution caused by coal-burning in industry, for home heating and power plants accounted for about 40% of PM2.5 exposures and lead to 4.2 Million deaths in 2019 due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases. Hence, raising public awareness of air quality and the burden of disease caused by air pollution is an essential step in reducing air pollution. This increased the demand for facemasks across polluted countries like China, India, the USA, and others. An N95 mask is a NIOSH-approved respirator that offers 95% protection from outdoor air pollutants. This is also approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as a surgical mask.

The occurrence of Communicable Diseases
The occurrence of communicable diseases such as anthrax and influenza has intensified the development of the global face mask market. Growing anxieties concerning the defense of healthcare workers such as doctors, nurses, etc. from these transmissible diseases served as one of the major promoters for the face mask market growth. Additionally, growing airborne infections such as chickenpox and measles have fortified both large-scale and small-scale healthcare facility providers to include surgical facemasks in their offices. Rapid growth in population and urbanization has led to frequent close interpersonal contacts with other people which favors the transmission of respiratory infections. During the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, facial masks, once dedicated to specific professions, are rapidly becoming common amongst other end users.
Prevention from Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs)
One of the most important functions of a face mask is to prevent patients from picking up Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) that can be life-threatening. With the recent advancements in medicare facilities, the awareness regarding hospital-acquired infections has also increased. As per data released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 30% of HAIs are surgical site infections that add a hefty amount to the hospital bill of the patient. Due to this huge amount of money that patients have to spend because of the surgical site infections, people have become more aware of the causes and prevention of HAIs. This increasing awareness regarding HAIs is fueling the growth of the global face mask in the hospital segment.
