Disposable Face Masks Market – High Breathability and Skin-friendly Materials Boost Credibility of Manufacturers

The outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) has compromised several companies in the disposable face mask market of their supply chain demands. There is an unprecedented rise in the demand for disposable face masks, especially in healthcare facilities of the U.S. and Europe. A huge gap between demand and supply of face masks has resulted in the shortage of masks worldwide. Hence, companies in the disposable face mask market are placing their best foot forward to contain the spread of COVID-19. For instance, Under Armour-a supplier of innovative sportswear, is gaining efficacy in innovative no-sew masks that are made from a single piece of fabric.

Innovative no-sew face masks hold promising potentials to be mass-produced by manufacturers. However, one of the biggest challenges that manufacturers face is the time-consuming breakdown of micro-plastics, resulting in increased environmental footprint. Hence, manufacturers are increasing the awareness about reusable masks made from cotton and other biodegradable material to reduce the carbon footprint.

High Breathability and Skin-friendly Materials Boost Credibility of Manufacturers

High filtration efficiency and blockages against exhaled droplets are the key focus points that companies in the disposable face mask market are focusing on. For instance, iHealth Labs— a provider of connected health products, is offering its Livocare face mask, which is an easy-to-breathe and multi-layered face mask. As such, 3 layer disposable face masks dictate the highest revenue among all layer types in the market and the disposable face mask market is estimated to reach a production of ~556,700 units by the end of 2030. In order to capitalize on revenue opportunities, manufacturers are increasing their R&D activities in masks made with skin-friendly materials and convenient elastic ear loops to meet demands of individuals and other users.

There is a growing demand for 3 layer protection disposable face masks made from soft non-woven polypropylenes. As such, polypropylene materials dominate the second-highest revenue among all raw materials in the disposable face mask market.

3D Printed Mask Shields Extend Life of N95 Mask

Companies in the disposable face mask market are unlocking business potentials in 3D (Three Dimensional) mask shields. For instance, Calorine Shaw, manager at the GE Renewable Energy’s wind turbine factory, Florida, is increasing awareness about their innovative 3D printed shield masks that are created to extend the life of N95 disposable face masks. As such, N95 face masks dictate the highest revenue among all products in the disposable face mask market, where the market is expected to reach a value of ~US$ 3 Bn by the end of 2030.

Simple 3D printers are being increasingly used to develop plastic shields for N95 masks. Users are recommended to wear mask shields over N95 masks to limit the exposure of contaminants through the masks. They are also advised on the CGC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines to efficiently dispose the masks shields. As such, companies are increasing their research in additive manufacturing and mapping its advantages in multiplying production speeds.
