A surgical mask, or medical face mask, is often used by healthcare professionals as it serves as a physical barrier between the nose and mouth of the wearer and potential contaminants in the immediate environment. Surgical masks often used during a surgical/medical procedure. They are designed to protect wearer from inhaling airborne contaminants. Moreover, they are used to prevent the spread of disease. They prevent the spread of infection or disease between sick and well persons. Worldwide, the usage of face mask has also increased due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (ongoing global pandemic).
Increasing number of surgical/medical procedures and outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe is expected to aid in the growth of the global surgical masks market during the forecast period. For instance, as per the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), worldwide, a staggering 310 million major surgeries are performed each year; around 40 to 50 million in the United States and 20 million in Europe.
Moreover, with the increasing cases of COVID-19, the demand for or use of surgical masks is also increasing with the rapid pace.
