U.S. Disposable Face Mask Market Growth & Trends
The U.S. disposable face mask market size is anticipated to reach USD 6.21 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 60.8% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growth is attributed to the rapidly surging number of Covid-19 (coronavirus) cases in the country.
The widespread impact of the novel coronavirus in U.S. has been driving the demand for disposable face masks. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the total number of cases in U.S has reached more than 1.48 million as of May 18, 2020. Many of the small and medium manufacture have also entered in the market to cater to the rapid surge in demand for the product.
Additionally, increasing government spending coupled with ease in the documentation pertaining to manufacturing face mask with immediate effect will immensely help the market growth. For instance, the U.S. government signed an USD 8.3 million emergency spending bill aimed to boost virus-prevention efforts in the country. Furthermore, the enforcement of the Defense Production Act, in order to increase domestic production and distribution of PPEs, is expected to further augment the industry growth over the coming months.
The protective masks segment emerged as the largest product segment and accounted for over 35.0% revenue share in 2019. Protective masks are specially designed to offer the wearer a physical barrier between their mouth and nose, restricting potential contaminants in the environment from entering the body. The mouth and nose are two of the most vulnerable entry points for foreign particles; thus, the demand for these masks has been high in the industrial and medical sectors.
Among applications, the industrial application segment dominated the market for disposable face masks in U.S., with a share of nearly 80% in 2019. The increasing demand for the product in industries such as automotive, construction, and beauty and personal care can be regarded as a major factor driving the product demand in the industrial application segment. The personal use segment, however, is expected to expand at nearly double the CAGR of 85.1% during the forecast period.
The industry is currently characterized by supply shortages, manufacturers ramping up production capacities, and suppliers raising the price of disposable face masks. The hike in prices can be attributed to the rapid surge in demand. For instance, Hatfield and Company, a Texas-based supplier of N95 disposable face masks, has increased the price of its face masks from USD 1 to USD 6. The company sold about 2 million masks to a major U.S. oil company in the early week of March 2020.
