The global surgical masks market revenue growth includes an increasing need to prevent the spread of viral infections, an increasing need to prevent the transfer of droplets, splashes, and sprays in healthcare settings, and an increasing need to mitigate exposure to particulate air pollution.
A surgical mask is a kind of personal protective equipment (PPE) that acts as a mechanical barrier to direct airflow into and out of respiratory orifices (such as the mouth and nose). Natural fibers such as cotton, disposable linen, and synthetic materials such as polypropylene are used to make surgical masks. They comprise several layers, including an outer hydrophobic layer, a middle filtering layer, and an inner hydrophilic layer to absorb fluid and moisture. In recent years, manufacturers have made several efforts to improve the quality of surgical masks against harmful bacterial infections. Surgical masks are disposable devices that prevent the spread of infection in healthy populations. Surgical masks are meant to protect doctors and surgeons from harmful infections and pathogens that are set to get suspended in the surgery room. Basic surgical masks are available in a variety of distribution channels, including hospitals and other pharmacies, retail outlets, and online distribution platforms.
