Study #: 3862
Individual User License: US$ 2,900
Global demand for disposable masks and respirators is expected to increase nearly 170% in 2020 as countries around the globe work to protect their populations, especially healthcare workers, from contracting the COVID-19 virus:
Growth in healthcare markets will come primarily in the first half of 2020, although high levels of demand for masks later in the year will be supported by consumer and commercial use as countries reopen their economies and until a vaccine or other treatment is developed.
Demand for disposable masks worldwide has significantly surpassed levels seen during earlier SARS and H1N1 epidemics.
Longer term, demand is expected to return to more sustainable levels and is forecast to grow 5.7% per year to $3.5 billion in 2024.
Included within the scope of this study are:
medical examination or procedure masks
personal masks (also known as courtesy masks)
respirator masks certified to filter at least 94% of airborne particles, commonly known as N95, KN95, and FFP2 masks, among others (as well as oil-resistant versions of these)
