With an increasing incidence rate of infectious and contagious diseases, the demand for personal protection products, including face masks, is increasing rapidly. Additionally, there is an increase in the number of manufacturers and distributors worldwide, creating enormous growth opportunities for established players and new entrants.
Prominent factors that drive the market growth are the increasing number of patients suffering from coronavirus leading to huge demand from care providers and the general public. However, the rising cost of raw materials for production, coupled with the disruption of the supply chain in certain regions, is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
With countries across the globe affected by the pandemic, the US has emerged as a global hotspot. The US currently leads the world in confirmed cases and deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University. As of 7th July 2020, deaths due to COVID-19 in the US stand at 130,414, along with 2,947,801 confirmed cases.

Under this standard, there are several classes of respirators depending on the degree of oil resistance categorized as Class N, Class R, and Class P. The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that N95 masks should be used only by medical professionals, not by the general public.
