The global outbreak of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the global healthcare system, with the growing necessity for personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks. This is driving the demand for N95 respirators, the rapid sale of which has however, led to a shortage of these products in healthcare facilities. Therefore, governments across the world are extending support to manufacturers to ramp up the production of N95 respirators to overcome such shortages. For instance, the US government collaborated with N95 respirator manufacturers and introduced new legislation, whereby it eliminated the need for US FDA premarket approval for N95 respirators. Developments such as these can be expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.

The market is driven by the high demand during pandemic outbreaks. In addition, growing advances in N95 respirators are anticipated to boost the growth of the N95 respirators market.

Recent outbreaks of respiratory infection-based diseases such as COVID-19 and H1N1 have increased the demand for N95 respirators among frontline healthcare workers such as nurses, first responders, and medical practitioners who are at a greater risk of exposure to such diseases. Regulatory authorities such as the CDC have recommended the use of N95 respirators rather than common surgical masks. These respirators are thicker and fit tightly around the nose and mouth, which makes them quite effective in blocking out smaller particles (such as viruses up to a size of 0.3 microns). While healthcare regulatory authorities across the globe recommend limiting the use of N95 respirators to healthcare workers; the general masses are also purchasing these masks to mitigate the risk of contracting diseases such as COVID-19. These factors are significantly boosting the sale of N95 masks from retail medical outlets, thereby driving the growth of the market.
