A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on anti-pollution
mask market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the
global as well as regional anti-pollution mask market. The study also
highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the
global and regional anti-pollution mask market over the short term as well as
long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecasts, and
dollar values of the global anti-pollution mask market. According to the report,
the global anti-pollution mask market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5%
over the forecast period of 2020-2026.
The prospective for infection with pathogens in the air and for
contact with such airborne particulates poses a threat to global public health
that can be mitigated through the personal use of anti-pollution face masks.
The value of such masks for excluding pathogens and pollutants is a function
both of user fulfillment and comfort and the fundamental ability of the masks
to resist penetration by airborne particulates and infectious agents. For
instance, the use of protective face masks results in impairment of convection,
evaporation, and radiation processes, and that negatively impacts respiratory
and dermal mechanisms of human thermoregulation.
An increase in pollution levels across the world is the primary
growth factor for the global anti-pollution mask market. Research has shown
that exposure to air pollution has negative impacts on the internal body parts
such as lungs and hearts, and potentially the brain as well. According to WHO,
every year seven million people are killed owing to air pollution worldwide.
Furthermore, 9 out of 10 people breathe air with high levels of pollutants. Air
pollution poses a major threat to health and climate from smog hanging over
cities to smoke inside the home. An increased mortality from stroke, heart
disease, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and acute
respiratory infections is the combined effects of ambient and household air
pollution. The use of anti-pollution masks is an easily available and effective
option to fight pollution.
Additionally, the rising industrialization rate in developing
economies is boosting the demand for anti-pollution masks across the world. On
the other side, breathing difficulties faced by users due to the mask is
hindering the growth of the global anti-pollution mask market. Some of the anti-pollution
masks cause problems while breathing as people feel uncomfortable breathing
using a mask and most pollution face masks available in the market are made by
using multiple layer filters that cause a high obstacle to airflow. A mask may
block out some pollution but have other ill health effects and it may also
cause respiratory distress and become a hotbed for microbes to thrive.
Moreover, developing lighter and reusable anti-pollution masks is expected to
provide wide growth opportunities to the market players.
The suppliers of materials and components for manufacturing face
masks are witnessing high growth and production of masks is skyrocketing due to
the COVID-19 outbreak. This anti-pollution breathing mask helps to breathe
pollution-free air and gives basic protection from Coronavirus owing to its
multi-layer filters. Masks were mostly manufactured by small to medium-sized
companies; however, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 several disparate firms are
entering the market due to lucrative opportunities.
Among the regions, Asia Pacific is dominating the global anti-pollution
mask market. It is due to increasing pollution levels and deteriorated the air
quality in countries such as China and India. Half of the world’s population
lives in the Asia Pacific region as well as the most polluted countries also
belong to this region. Air pollution in the Asia Pacific region is a major
health risk and also has harmful impacts on the environment and agricultural
crop yields. The growing adoption of anti-pollution masks in the region is
expected to fuel the market in the forecast period. North America is the
second-largest market for the global anti-pollution mask market owing to the
increasing awareness regarding soaring pollution levels among the population.
