N95 Mask Market
The global N95 mask market is expected to rise to USD 1,627.5 million by 2025 from USD 810.0 million in
2019, recording a CAGR of 11.5 percent during the forecast period (2020-2025). The development of this
demand is due to the increasing need for respiratory protective equipment required to protect ordinary
people and medical staff for operations or to recognize patients infected by the virus during an
epidemic, such as covid-19.
During the forecast era, masks with exhalation valve classification are expected to experience faster
growth in the N95 mask market. This is because, with the aid of an efficient seal, exhalation valve masks
are useful in shielding wearers. Unlike a mask lacking an exhalation valve, the wearer can conveniently
minimize humidity and heat.
During 2020-2025, on the basis of use, the regular usage classification is expected to witness the rapid
growth of the N95 mask industry.
The key factor identified in the growth of the global N95 mask market is the proliferation of different
start-ups entering the personal protective equipment market in order to supply the required equipment
at the time of the pandemic. As a consequence of rising output of these products from multiple players
along with new players, demand for the global N95 mask market is therefore expected to accentuate.
The growth factors for the global demand for N95 masks are growing government policies and spreading
people's understanding of self-protection and reducing the incidence of respiratory infection in
individuals. In addition, a further factor driving the growth of global N95 masks for employees is the
growing use of chemicals in manufacturing industries.
Most of the masks manufactured are from China and the availability of masks is not able to satisfy
demand in the current scenario of a pandemic, leading to sluggish growth of the global N95 mask
industry. In addition, they have fallen short of their need for masks because of the pandemic and they
have about 1% inventory of the
