Emergence of Biological Hazards Pushing Market Growth

Over the last two decades, world is witnessing rising cases of biological diseases such as Ebola, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, and COVID 19. Emergence of above mentioned hazards has positively influenced the demand for respiratory masks.

These diseases are caused by microscopic viruses which can easily be transmitted from one person to another. To stop the transmission, most effective mechanism considered is using a mask. Thus, due to the prevalence of biological diseases is projected to drive the demand for respiratory mask market over the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID 19 has greatly impacted the global economy. The rising number of death tolls around the globe has forced governments to opt for lockdown and make respiratory mask compulsory. Thereby, providing strong demand for respiratory masks over the forecast period.

Stringent Norms to Promote Workplace Safety to Steer Market Growth

The regulators around the world are working rigorously to reduce the death cases related to the workplace environment. The total number of deaths due to workplace hazard or inhalation of chemicals has greatly increased over the last few years. To counter such challenge,regulators are forming special norms related to the use of respiratory masks around workplaces like construction sites, mining fields, and chemical factories.

Continuous exposure to dust and particles often affects the lining of internal organs, thus creating long term damage in form of cancer called mesothelioma. This is caused by the continual exposure of chemicals such as asbestos. The sectors mostly associated to such harmful exposure include power plants, shipyards, chemical industries, manufacturing facilities, and construction.
