 Surgical Masks Overview

A surgical mask is an FDA-approved medical apparatus that healthcare workers widely use in hospitals, clinics, outpatient departments, and diagnostic centers, among other places. The primary purpose of these masks is to prevent cross-contamination between patients and doctors. It serves as a barrier to keep doctors from inhaling hazardous microorganisms released by patients in the form of aerosols, liquids, and splashes. They also aid in the preservation of sterility in operating rooms. As required by ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials) certification, surgical masks are divided into four categories based on the level of protection they give. The level 3 surgical masks offer heavy protection against exposure to aerosol, spray, or liquid, while the minimum protection surgical masks are designed for short surgical operations that do not involve liquids, aerosols, or spray.

Increasing Need for Improved Safety Standards Contributes to Market Growth

India surgical mask market has grown in response to the growing demand for higher safety standards since the success rate of surgeries is primarily dependent on the level of safety and precautions taken during procedures. Surgical masks are used during surgical procedures as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination by microorganisms. To reduce cross-contamination of pathogens, surgeons and other medical professionals use surgical masks during surgical procedures and also while interacting with patients.  According to government regulations, the patient undergoing treatment must also be protected from infectious pathogens that others may release in the operating room. All of these factors contribute to the growth of the India surgical mask market.

Restraints                         

Environmental Hazard Impeding the Growth of India Surgical Masks Market

Surgical masks contain absorbent chemicals and are disposed of into nature after use. Majority of these masks are made with the help of superabsorbent polymers, such as polyacrylate, which are non-biodegradable and are very harmful for the natural habitats. Moreover, such masks contain more than 90% non-biodegradable items with superabsorbent polymers and non-woven plastic components. The disposal of these masks has thus become a serious issue and is posing a significant environmental hazard, which directly hampers growth of the surgical masks market in India.

Impact of COVID-19 on the India Surgical Masks market

The COVID-19 has created a number of issues for the surgical mask market in India. When COVID-19 cases surged around the world, demand for surgical masks in India increased exponentially. As the COVID-19 cases surged around the world, India surgical mask market registered an exponential surge in the demand for surgical masks. The COVID-19 outbreak in some countries triggered a shortage of surgical masks, but India registered a surplus in surgical masks. In April 2020, the textile industry assured the Indian government that they have adequate stocks of personal protection equipment (PPE) suits, N-95 masks, and 2/3 ply surgical masks. Within the next three months, the country registered a surplus of surgical masks in the country and asked the government to allow surgical mask exports to manage the inventory. The cases of COVID-19 are surging once again in the country due to the Omicron variant and the demand for surgical masks is expected to go up again in the near future to prevent another severe wave of the COVID-19 in the country.

Indian Surgical Masks Market– By Product Type

Based on products, India surgical mask market is categorized into basic surgical mask, anti-fog surgical mask, fluid/splash-resistant surgical mask, N95 mask, and others. The basic surgical mask segment was the highest contributor to the market in 2021, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to the prevalence of infectious diseases and large number of surgical procedures performed annually.
