According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled,"Surgical Mask Market by Product and Distribution Channel: India Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025",the market was valued at $58 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $95 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2018 to 2025.
Surgical masks are extensively used for providing appropriate protection, owing to their ability to create barriers either from the structure of the nonwoven itself or from an additional active coating for personal protective apparel. In addition, disposable surgical masks are sterile, antibacterial, liquid repellent, and liquid absorbent. They are commonly used in surgical processes, serving as a barrier to microorganisms and prevent cross-contamination.
In addition, developments in nonwovens production technology, rise in focus toward preventing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), and increase in use of high-quality fabrics for safety purposes provided by nonwoven material drive the growth of the surgical mask market. Moreover, significant increase in geriatric population, implementation of stringent government regulation toward health & hygiene, and rise in health awareness boost the market growth. However, increase in concerns regarding the disposable of surgical masks and rise in popularity of less invasive surgeries are anticipated to hamper the market growth. On the contrary, innovations in nanotechnology and its increased use in surgical mask production along with upsurge in demand for single use of nonwoven surgical mask are predicted to create remunerative opportunities for the market growth in the near future.
The basic surgical masks segment is anticipated to garner the largest share in the India surgical mask market throughout the forecast period, owing to easy availability and high demand in the healthcare industry. However, the fluid/splash-resistant surgical mask segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 8.2% from 2018 to 2025.
The India surgical masks market is expected to register considerable growth, owing to higher demand for surgical masks and development of healthcare infrastructure.
