LONDON, 02 Feb. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global sales of N95 medical protective face masks are expected to regain momentum as the COVID-19 pandemic situation prevails. While N95 Medical Protective Masks Market has seen a continuous upward trend due to the growing risk of respiratory diseases, the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic has given it an exceptional boost overnight, turning all the equations for manufacturers, as well as for other stakeholders. The proven effectiveness of N95 masks in preventing the spread of infections remains the key factor driving sales globally. Exceeding revenues of over US$1.1 billion in 2020, the N95 medical protective mask market will witness a strong CAGR of 9.5% by the end of 2026, projects a new report from Fairfield Market Research. Cup-type masks will continue to contribute more than 69% of market revenue, while flat-fold disposable respirators are expected to see the fastest growing sales, according to the report.

Superior protective capabilities continue to drive preference for N95 grade masks

While N95-grade medical face masks can filter out 95% or more of all airborne particles, regardless of size, a lot of research has been done on the fabrics used in their manufacture. Given the superiority of N95 masks over other face coverings, research should continue and pave the way for newer and more effective fabrics for N95 protective masks. This will remain an important factor complementing the existing potential of the N95 medical protective mask market. Additionally, rising air pollution levels and stringent air quality regulations are likely to support global sales of N95-compliant face masks even after the pandemic subsides. Regulatory bodies like the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) further mean the use of personal protective equipment at work, including N95 respirators as well.

Revenue concentration in North America and Europe prevails

With an estimated growth of 8.9% by the end of 2026, North America will continue to dominate the revenue generation in the global N95 medical protective mask market. Europe, which is expected to show even higher growth potential, has largely benefited from the explosion in demand due to a severe shortage of quality N95 masks during the first months of the pandemic. The European Council says the UK, Germany and Italy collectively account for more than half of the production of N95 medical protective masks in Europe. Led by China, Asia-Pacific also remains an important market for mask manufacturers who have only focused on increasing the production of N95 protective masks to avoid an inadequate supply scenario.
