The market is driven by the frequent outbreak of epidemics. In addition, the rising number of surgical procedures is anticipated to boost the growth of the surgical mask market.
Factors such as poor sanitization, poor immunity among people, and delays in implementing control measures to contain the spread of flu and other diseases can lead to global epidemic. The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is one such recent example. It originated in China in December 2019 and has spread to almost every country across the world. To control the spread of the virus, healthcare professionals and governments across the world are recommending the use of surgical masks. Apart from public use, surgical masks are extensively used by physicians, nurses, social workers, housekeeping staff, and others who are at a high risk of exposure to such airborne diseases including, influenza, meningitis, and measles. These diseases spread through liquid droplets suspended in the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Therefore, the increasing frequency of epidemics is expected to boost the growth of the market over the forecast period.
