Surgical Masks: A Brief 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 the patient and the 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 the 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.

Saudi Arabia Surgical Mask Market Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Number of Surgeries in Saudi Arabia

With minimally invasive surgical practices on the rise in Saudi Arabia, surgical and anesthesia mask demand has increased across a wide range of end-users, including ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals, specialized clinics, etc. Health-related issues that lead to surgery have increased dramatically across the kingdom due to an increasing geriatric population and the growing frequency of various diseases and health concerns. According to the Saudi government, 25% of Saudi Arabia's 40 million people will be 60 or older by 2040 and more than 10 million people will be aged 65 or older by 2050.

In recent years, Saudi Arabia has experienced an increase in the number of surgeries and burns cases, chronic diseases, and hospitals and healthcare workers, all of which contribute to the increasing use of surgical masks. Additionally, the growing number of hospitals and medical facilities in the country is aiding in the use of surgical masks.

Increasing Need for Improved Safety Standards Contributes to Market Growth

Saudi Arabia’s 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. As per the government regulation, the patient undergoing treatment must also be protected against infectious pathogens that others may release in the operating rooms. The factors mentioned above contribute to the growth of Saudi Arabia surgical mask market.

Restraints

Enhanced Safety Regulations, Scarcity of Surgical Masks, and Increasing Price of Surgical Masks Impeding Market Growth

The scarcity of surgical masks and equipment in the medical field has increased dramatically because of the growing demand for surgical masks. The shortage has also led to an increase in surgical mask prices, which has hindered the market's growth. Other factors that may limit the surgical mask market's growth include the rise in popularity of less invasive operations and concerns about the disposal of non-woven disposable surgical masks.

Impact of COVID-19

The rapid spread of the coronavirus has sparked a surge in demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), such as surgical masks, for use by healthcare and medical workers in Saudi Arabia. This is one of the most prominent current drivers for the surgical masks market in Saudi Arabia.  As of June 7, 2021, Saudi Arabia had 458,707 coronavirus cases, with 7,471 deaths and 441,860 recoveries. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a surge in demand for medications, medical disposables, hospital equipment, as well as surgical masks. Additionally, the Saudi government agencies have taken preventative measures against COVID-19, which include mandating the use of gloves, masks, and other personal protective equipment, resulting in the growth of Saudi Arabia surgical mask market.

Saudi Arabia Surgical Mask Market- By Type

Based on product types, Saudi Arabia surgical mask market is segmented into the anti-fog surgical mask, basic surgical mask, fluid/splash resistant surgical mask, N95 mask, and others. Due to widespread demand from the healthcare sector and easy accessibility across hospitals, pharmacies, retail outlets, and online distribution platforms, the basic surgical mask segment led the Saudi Arabia surgical mask market. However, anti-fog surgical masks are predicted to grow significantly during the forecast period, followed by fluid/splash-resistant surgical masks. To prevent fogging, anti-fog surgical masks provide a seal between the user's face and the mask. The technology in these masks, either in the form of foam, adhesive, or film, prevents condensation from escaping from the top half of the mask, ensuring optical clarity and preventing fogging of the spectacles. The aspect mentioned above is expected to drive Saudi Arabia surgical mask market in the coming years.
