Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety mask industry was growing decently. However, masks were used by professionals only, like doctors, nurses, construction workers, factory workers, and in rare cases, patients with contagious diseases. But after the spread of novel coronavirus, the demand for masks has skyrocketed. Apart from the pandemic, rising pollution is also one of the reasons for the increased demand for masks. In today's time, people have become more aware and alert about their health and immunity and hence, most of them have started buying and using safety masks and N95 respirators. Both of the categories of face masks have proven to be reliable against COVID 19, as they prevent the entry and exit of the coronavirus.
There are different kinds of safety masks available in the market such as simple cloth or fabric masks and surgical masks. Cloth masks are easy to customize and are highly affordable. These kinds of masks offer mild protection to the wearer from viruses and other harmful pathogens that are either airborne or in droplets caused by sneezing or coughing. Unlike cloth-based masks, surgical masks provide a higher level of protection from pathogens. Due to this, they are recommended by medical experts across the globe. A surgical mask, if worn properly, can block large-particle droplets, that may contain germs, viruses, and bacteria. It may also help reduce exposure of the wearer's saliva and respiratory secretions to others.
N95 respirators face masks are the most reliable masks as they are multilayered and can filter out and prevent the entry of large & small particles. These face masks are comparatively expensive than cloth masks and disposable surgical masks. Wearers can choose masks as per their preference, efficacy, and affordability.
Indian mask market was valued at around $ 66 million in the financial year 2020. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 11% until FY2025 owing to rising health awareness, increasing pollution, and growing carbon dioxide emissions. This sector has tremendous growth potential and now is the best time to invest here.
