Healthcare Protective Masks Market Segmentation


By Product Type



  • Surgical Masks: This segment is the largest segment due to the rising prevalence of infectious diseases. A surgical mask is intended to be worn by health professionals during healthcare procedures. It is designed to prevent infections in patients and surgeons or doctors.



  • Anesthesia Masks: These masks have a cuff that allows for a complete seal to be achieved between the mask and the patient’s face. Anesthesia masks are used to deliver non-invasive ventilation.



  • Respirators: This segment is the fastest-growing segment due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Respirators are masks that are used to protect the wearer from particulates in the air. These are usually worn over the mouth to protect the respiratory system by filtering out dangerous substances from inhaled air.



  • Others: Other product types of protective masks include N95 respirators and barrier masks. N95 respirators are respirators that fit more tightly and prevent the wearer from inhaling smaller, airborne infectious particles.


By End-User



  • Hospitals & Clinics: This is the largest segment with increasing surgical procedures. The protective masks are one of the major personal protective equipment being used in hospitals and clinics. These masks are usually used for surgeries to prevent the spread of diseases or viruses among hospitals or clinics.



  • Ambulatory Surgical Centers: This segment is the fastest-growing segment with an increase of infectious diseases. These are modern healthcare facilities focusing to provide same-day surgical care, including diagnostics and preventive procedures.



  • Others: Other end users of protective masks are individuals, care centers, and research institutes.


By Region
