COVID-19 Impact

Widening Demand-Supply Gap Challenged Stakeholders

With construction and mining sectors witnessing major disruptions, the demand for PPE dipped globally. Postponement of manufacturing plants or temporary shutdown of operations did not augur well for the business outlook. Moreover, the ban on exports of respirators sent shockwaves globally. According to the World Trade Organization (WTO), around 80 countries banned the export of respirators during the pandemic as a temporary measure to overcome severe shortages. Meanwhile, exponential demand in the healthcare sector across emerging and advanced economies encouraged production.

Drivers and Restraints

Bullish Demand for N-95 Respirators Fueled Innovations

The protective face mask market growth will be pronounced due to strong demand for N-95 respirators across developed and developing economies.

General and medical professionals will continue to seek surgical N95 for COVID-19 infection protection. Manufacturers will continue to emphasize the production of protective face mask across healthcare facilities.

However, fluctuation in the prices of protective face masks could challenge leading companies gearing to boost their portfolios.
