U.S. N95 Mask Market Growth & Trends

The U.S. N95 mask market size is anticipated to reach USD 1.13 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.3% from 2020 to 2028. The rising resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with the increasing occurrence of infectious biological diseases is anticipated to have a positive impact on the N95 masks market growth in the U.S.

Rising concerns regarding the respiratory illnesses associated with dust and particulate matter in various industries such as construction, manufacturing, and mining are expected to boost the adoption of N95 masks. Furthermore, with the recurrence of new strains of the COVID-19 virus, doctors and nurses are increasingly using N95 masks to protect themselves from infection.

The pandemic resulted in severe supply chain disruption, prompting companies such as 3M and Honeywell International Inc. to ramp up domestic production to cater to the increased demand for N95 masks in the U.S. Several new manufacturers such as PandMedic Solutions Inc. and Protective Health Gear entered the N95 masks market in 2020 to fulfill the increased demand.

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the process of shifting from the traditional distribution to a more engaging digital experience. The pandemic boosted the growth of the e-commerce industry, on account of remote working and stay-at-home orders initiated by the U.S. government. Many retail stores developed their own online e-commerce sites or listed their products on third-party sellers.
