The Face shield market size is estimated to grow from USD 3.0 billion in 2020 to USD 4.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.5%. As the number of COVID-19 cases is increasing, it is becoming very important for healthcare professionals and other public workers to be safe in order to save more lives. Face shields along with other PPEs were recommended for use by public healthcare bodies. Due to disruptions in the global supply of PPEs for health workers worldwide, the World Health Organization recommended industries and governments to increase manufacturing by 40% to meet the global need. The face shield increases the lifespan of the face mask. Simulation studies with the use of the face shield have shown a 96% decrease in contamination of a person when droplets come at them from a distance of 18 inches. The face shield also prevents the person from continuously touching his/her face, facilitates facial non-verbal communication between healthcare workers and increases the life of the mask.
