 1 Income analysis of investment in the mask production line from scratch 

1.1 Revenue from a mask production line

Current price of a maskDaily production of a mask production lineDaily income of mask production line
About 3CNY in ChinaAbout 100,000 masksAbout 300,000CNY
About 5USD in abroadAbout 100,000 masksAbout 500,000USD

1.2 Cost of a mask production line

Note: According to 30g/m2 of the mask material (non-woven fabric), the size of the mask is about 18cm*18cm, the output of a mask making machine is about 100K masks one day, it can be calculated that consume 0.1ton melt-blown fabric and 0.2ton spunbond non-woven fabric per 24H.

 How many days is there a net profit? 

The epidemic is basically stable in China, production of three-day mask, income is about 130,000USD, recoverable cost, then net profit is about 30,000USD a day. In abroad, now in the outbreak period of epidemic, mask revenue is about 500,000USD a day, can directly generate net profit, after that the daily net profit of up to 480,000USD.

 2 How many masks do we need? 

global epidemicAs of March 25th, 2020, except China, there are 190 countries worldwide, with a cumulative number of confirmed cases reaching 349659, 86 countries of which have more than 100 people infected.

2.1 What is the daily demand for masks

2.2 What is the daily supply of medical masks

About 4.5 billion a year

Daily production 250 million per day
Masks production except for China20 million per dayNot much increase,

50 million per day

As the number of infected people increases, the masks shortage has become a growing concern, about 3.9 billion. WHO says the demand for personal protective articles, such as masks, is 100 times the normal level and the price is 20 times the normal level, and this situation will be further aggravated by the widespread and inappropriate use of masks.

Six-time periodsNumber of infected persons,

the spread of the epidemic

Measures to prevent and control
2019/12/8 ~ 2020/1/17No more than 100 cases in total.Infected people is low, not valued
2020/1/17 ~ 2020/1/23The number of infections rose rapidly from 62 to 830 a week.It was felt that the virus was transmitted, but no effective measures were taken, such as wearing masks.
2020/1/23 ~ 2020/1/28The cumulative number of infections increased from 830 to 5997.Wuhan sealed city, strict traffic control, greatly reduce the flow of people, the whole country to fight the epidemic.
2020/1/28 ~ 2020/2/21The number of infected people continues to increase, the cumulative number of about 80000, refresh the record.During this period, the movement of people has been minimized, the work was delayed and the school was suspended.
2020/2/21 ~ 2020/2/29During the peak period of epidemic situation consolidation, the daily increase is stable at around 500.Wear masks, measure body temperature, start work and go to school in an orderly manner.
2020/3/1 ~ nowadaysThe daily increase remained below 500 and gradually decreased, and the epidemic gradually stabilized.To prevent repeated outbreaks, we must wear masks, measure body temperature every day, and stick to the end of the epidemic.

2020/1/16 ~ 2020/2/1Less than 100 cumulative casesThe number of infections is low, nobody pays attention to.
2020/2/1 ~ 2020/2/19The number of the epidemic has gradually increased from 100 to 962Felt that the virus has a global spread tendency, but no national attention.
2020/2/19 ~ 2020/2/29The number of epidemic rose rapidly from 962 to 6349The epidemic began to full spread, but no country to achieve comprehensive traffic control, almost no one wearing masks.
2020/3/1 ~ 2020/3/25A total of 190 countries, with cumulative infections of 349659, have continued to increase, with no sign of weakening.The epidemic is spreading globally, with Italy, Spain, cities around the world are closed, and several countries implement traffic controls.

3.3 How will the global epidemic evolve in the coming months

epidemic China and abroadComparing the epidemic development and control measures of Chinese and abroad, it is not difficult to see that at present, the foreign epidemic situation is in the rising stage, which is far from stable, let alone reduced. Zhong Nanshan, a Chinese expert on prevention and control of the epidemic, predicts that if the whole countries around the world pay attention to it, the epidemic is expected to end in June, while some national experts predict that the epidemic will last through 2020.

 4 Can China provide masks to the world? 

Although China’s current epidemic is said to be gradually stable, to prevent repeated outbreaks, in daily work and life to wear masks. Because the latent incubation period of the virus is about 14 days, even there is an incubation period of about 30 days, so the Chinese will probably have to wear masks for another two months.

4.1 Current supply of masks in China

Daily supplyDaily demandDaily mask gapSafety end time
120 million850 millionAbout 700 millionJune even longer

4.2 Supply and demand over the next two months

In China, if workers return to full work and students go to school, the daily mask gap will reach about 700 million, and in the next two months, the mask gap will reach about 40 billion, at least two months, China is unable to provide the world with a large number of masks.

For humanitarian reasons, China will provide other countries with a certain amount of masks and protective clothing to help their medical difficulties, but this will not solve the fundamental problem of the shortage of masks, nor prevent the further spread of the epidemic.

 5 Shall we invest in the mask production line 

The global epidemic is heating up, the demand for masks is so huge, there is no doubt that if we want to control the spread of the epidemic effectively, the world needs to build a wide range of mask production lines. In China, the mask production line needs to expand, continue to increase the production of masks, abroad, to immediately build a mask production line, even two months later.

5.1 People all over the world need to build a mask line immediately

mask enterprises

China is the largest mask manufacturer in the world, whether it is melt-blown non-woven fabric or mask products, accounting for about 50% of global production. However, in the next three months, there will be a continuing shortage of masks in China and the world, and people all over the world should immediately look for all resources, set up more mask production lines, and jointly prevent and control the epidemic situation.

5.2 Is it too late to invest now?

mask making machineA fully automatic production line includes mask forming machines, mask crimping machines, mask trimming machines, nose bridge line fitting machines, and earband spot welding machines, the production process mainly includes 7 steps, here are detailed instructions can help you.

 7 What traps should be avoided when buying a mask making machine? 

As the global epidemic intensifies and spreads, the world is now building a large number of new mask production lines to solve the problem of mask shortage. The purchase of the mask making machine generally involves the following aspects: whether the mask quality produced meets the standard, whether the mask making machine can run continuously and stably, the output, delivery period, and price of the mask making machine, whether the sales manufacturer can provide perfect after-sales service and so on.
