Growing demand for hand protection, respiratory protection and personal protective equipment for healthcare will meet industry forecasts.

Regional outlook

North America will witness investment aplenty with bullish investment in face masks

Industry participants expect the United States and Canada to provide lucrative opportunities through increased awareness of the use of face masks, isolation gowns and safety gloves. Strict government regulations amid the onslaught of the COVID-19 outbreak have sparked the demand for PPE kits. To illustrate, in May 2020 3M was planning to triple production of N 95 masks, the company planned to produce 96 million respirator masks in the US production facility by October 2020.

The growth of the Asia-Pacific healthcare PPE market will be pronounced due to the growing demand for gloves, face masks and coveralls. For example, the surge in COVID-19 cases in China and India has played a crucial role in increasing the demand for PPE kits. Rising safety standards and improved hygiene in healthcare facilities bode well for regional growth.

Stakeholders predict that the growth of the European market will be high owing to the growing need for PPE products in Spain, UK, and Italy, among others. For example, in April 2020, UNICEF Spain reportedly donated approximately 418,000 face masks to Spain to help overcome the pandemic.
