COVID-19 has been going on for roughly two years now. In the face mask market,…
Recently, some countries have begun to relax restrictions on people wearing masks, and practitioners in the mask industry have begun to worry about mask sales. The mask industry has experienced explosive development from 2020 to 2021. The market is gradually saturated, and in 2022 Has the crisis come?
Let’s first look at the following facts:
1 At present, the worldwide epidemic of COVID-19 is still very serious, with more than 1 million new cases added every day. Compared with the second half of 2021, the data of new cases in early 2022 is climbing; it can be inferred that people are still worried about it. And wearing a mask is the easiest way to protect themselves.
2 Although the indoor mask order has been lifted in some areas, masks are still required in many places outdoors. For example, in Ottawa, Canada, Masks are still mandatory on Ottawa’s public transit, Public Health facilities, City of Ottawa facilities, and business venues, including OC Transpo buses / O-Train vehicles/O-Train and Transit Stations/ Para Transpo minibusses and Taxis /Vaccination clinics, Dental clinics/The National Arts Centre, most business buildings. In a word, Masks are required for all staff and visitors in lots of public places.
In the United States, Mask-wearing mandates are nearly been canceled, but Americans who enter airports, or take buses and trains and transit systems will be wearing masks for another month.
The Biden administration plans to announce an extension of the mask order, which will last until at least April 18. The mask order was due to expire on March 18.
3 In order to defend their own interests, most businesses require consumers to wear masks, so the consumption of masks is still very large. As we all know, once the epidemic is discovered in the store, it will have a fatal impact on the business owners.
4 Since the outbreak of the epidemic, it has become more and more common for people in the food industry to wear masks.
According to the 2021 San Diego Food Workers Food Safety Guidelines, food workers are the number one cause of the spread of germs to food.
Germs can be spread by food handlers from someone who coughs or sneezes on food, utensils, or food surfaces, as well as through droplets spit by people when they talk or droplets that fall from someone’s nose. The spread of COVID-19 is no exception. So people who work with food are required not only to take a food safety course and be certified but also to wear masks.
5 For many people, wearing a mask has gradually become a habit. Maybe they were resistant at first for various reasons, but as mask-wearing becomes a common practice around the world, they accept it. After all, health is the most important. In Los Angeles, mask-wearing mandates have been canceled, but some people say they still wear masks when they go out. Los Angeles media practitioners Wang San ping said that he will still wear a mask consciously whenever he goes out. As long as the epidemic is not completely over in one day, he will not take off the mask for a day.
The above points prove that people around the world still have a great demand for masks. So, what about the development prospect of the mask industry?
The global surgical mask market size is expected to reach USD 685.5 million by 2028, according to a new report from Grand View Research, Inc.
