Dublin, March 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "US Medical Face Shields Market - Focused Insights 2024-2029" report has been added to's offering.

The US medical face shields market was valued at USD 102.21 million and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.55% from 2023 to 2029, to reach USD 158.16 Million by 2029.

In 2023, the market was dominated by reusable face shields, accounting for a significant market share of more than 70%. However, the forecast period anticipates a shift as disposable face shields gain traction due to their affordability and convenience. Disposable face shields are increasingly preferred because they prevent direct contact with respiratory droplets, crucial in mitigating the spread of infectious diseases. The disposable segment is also witnessing rapid growth, driven by innovation and technological advancements to enhance protective capabilities and user comfort.

The global pandemic has catalyzed a rapid surge in online sales of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), reshaping the dynamics of the industry. Major manufacturers have strategically aligned with online retail giants, facilitating the seamless distribution of bulk orders. Furthermore, 3D printing technology has revolutionized face shield production, offering advantages such as rapid and cost-effective manufacturing of customized components. Many key players have leveraged 3D printing during the pandemic, underscoring its importance in meeting surging demand.

Public awareness campaigns on infectious diseases are pivotal in driving demand for face shields as a supplementary protective measure. While face masks remain essential, face shields complement their efficacy by providing additional protection against respiratory droplet transmission. This dual protective approach is crucial in curbing the spread of infectious diseases, thereby driving market growth.


Polycarbonate stands out as the dominant material in the market, offering comprehensive facial protection against infectious agents. Manufacturers focus on producing disposable polycarbonate face shields with adjustable headbands to cater to evolving consumer preferences. Polyethylene face shields are also prevalent in healthcare settings, providing additional protection when used with other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The market is witnessing a rising demand for full-face shields, particularly those equipped with anti-fog properties, owing to their superior visibility and infection-prevention capabilities.


Hospitals and clinics emerge as the primary end-user segment, commanding a significant market share. This dominance is attributed to the heightened focus on healthcare worker protection, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, diagnostic laboratories are poised to generate substantial revenue, driven by an aging population and the growing demand for preventive medicine initiatives. Face shields serve as an alternative to goggles, offering broader protection against airborne infectious diseases, thereby witnessing increased adoption across various end-user industries.


The US Medical Face Shields market exhibits fragmentation, characterized by numerous local vendors alongside crucial players such as 3M, Cardinal Health, and Medline Inc. Emerging med-tech companies pose a considerable threat to global players with their innovative products and technologies. To maintain a competitive edge, market leaders focus on diversifying their product offerings and implementing strategies such as new product launches, acquisitions, and strengthened distribution networks

Moreover, companies are introducing differentiated products tailored to the specific needs of medical professionals and frontline healthcare workers, further driving market growth.
