Anti-pollution mask market has been significantly growing with the increasing urbanization and industrialization

Anti-pollution masks protect commuters from air pollutants. A well-fitted mask of proper size, covers the nose and mouth without leaving any space, is necessary for adequate protection. The mask with irregular shape and structure proves to be non-effective as the particulate matter could get stuck in the filters. Rapid urbanization and industrialization rates in developing economies such as China and India pose an alarming threat to pollution levels. Moreover, in the wake of the safety and well-being of consumers, the industrial sector imposes stringent government regulations for employees in offices, factories and construction areas. Thus, increasing awareness and concern of safety and health issues due to airborne diseases has boosted the demand for anti-pollution masks globally. An increasing trend of online purchasing is expected to boost the demand for anti-pollution masks.

Increasing demand for anti-pollution masks due to high exposure of pollutants

Children and youngsters face extreme risks of air contamination, because their lungs are more sensitive to the pollutants. The effect of air pollution on youngsters’ health is considerably more than that on the adults. This factor is anticipated to drive the demand for anti-pollution masks among young population globally. Elderly people who are more prone to illness due to their decreasing immunity are also highly affected by contaminated air. It becomes difficult for elder population to recover if they get infected by diseases. For everyone, using masks is likely to become inevitable due to the rise in airborne diseases, leading to expected increase in the demand for anti-pollution masks.

Consumer demand for efficient air purification and breathable anti-pollution mask

The cough and shortness of breath are caused by pollutant particles of size PM 2.5, which originated from sources such as vehicle exhaust, burning crops, forest fire, tobacco smoke and burning lamps. N95 mask is a NIOSH-approved respirator that gives 95% protection from the pollutants and has received approval of the Food and Drug Administration, for usage as a surgical mask. Due to this reason, there is a rising demand for similar protective masks by people who are alert regarding the risks associated with ignorance of pollution. For instance, in addition to the above, Prana Air, an Indian company, has installed a rechargeable battery-run micro-ventilator that removes the unpleasant build-up of carbon dioxide at different fan modes.
