Global Disposable Surgical Face Masks Market is valued approximately at USD XXX billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Disposable Surgical Face Masks are the coverings designed to be worn by health professional during healthcare procedures. A surgical mask is a loose-fitting, throwaway device that forms a physical barrier between the mouth and nose of the wearer and potential contaminants in the direct environment. If worn properly, a surgical mask can help block large-particle droplets, splashes, sprays, or splatter that may hold viruses and bacteria, keeping it from reaching the wearer’s mouth and nose. Hence the growing number of surgical procedures across the globe owing to rising diseases and infections drives the market for disposable surgical face masks. For Instance: As per EuroStat, the number of surgical procedures per 100 thousand inhabitants increased from 104.1 laparoscopic Appendectomy procedures in 2012 to 116.5 in 2017 in Ireland, followed by a similar increase in Austria from 49.9 procedures to 75.6 procedures. Also, the disposable feature of the masks adds on the safety of the wearer as these masks cannot be reused and prevents the wearer from contracting infection due to lack of thorough cleaning. Further, increasing incidence of hospital acquired infections (HAIs), and a rapidly increasing aging population globally are resulting in rising prevalence of age-related diseases and conditions, increasing number of surgical procedures and surgeries propelling the demand for disposable surgical face masks. As per the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) tha HAI account for 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths per year in America. Of these 22% are surgical site infections and 15% are lung infections. Moreover, the unprecedented spread of the COVID-19 across the globe has brought a surge in demand as people are using these masks as a precautionary measure. Also, the demand for these masks is likely to be driven by the rising popularity of online shopping platforms. As amid the crisis the online stores have gained preference and home deliveries are increasing which propels the companies to use these masks.
