Factors like these are leading to a higher incidence of age-borne diseases and conditions, an increase in the number of surgical procedures performed, the extensive investment in healthcare facilities and sector, as well as the expansion and advancement of healthcare sector in the developing regions.

The world has been witnessing the recent outbreak of viruses such as anthrax, influenza, avian bird flu, swine, flu, Ebola, and the more recent corona virus in China. Such massive and frequent outbreaks have caused an exponential raise in the sales of medical masks globally.

The virus outbreaks have also determined an increasing adoption of masks as a precautionary among the general public. This is expected to bode well into the future and provide lucrative growth opportunities to the global disposable face masks market. A novel coronavirus appeared in China at the end of 2019.

Older people and those with chronic health problems are most at risk for serious illness.

Air pollution, vehicle engine, and manufacturing facility pollutants, contaminants, and related allergies and effects are also projected to continue to substantially boost market growth throughout the forecast period. Recent outbreaks of viruses and the threat of pandemics are expected to offer high potential possibilities for both existing and new entrants in the global market for disposable face masks. Factors that are likely to minimize the sales growth of existing players include local or domestic and small-scale manufacturers supplying low-quality face masks. This is anticipated to have an impact on the sales and profits of existing players in the global disposable face masks market.
