Major players have upped their focus on underpinning their product offerings in face shields, face masks, gloves, and gowns. To illustrate, N95 respirator output at 3M reportedly rose to 1.1 billion per year. The rising demand for hand protection, respiratory protection, and healthcare personal protective equipment will fare well for the industry forecast.

However, the possibility of skin injury and increasing cases of skin allergies could impede the industry growth.
